I’ve had a touch of writers block today. Behind the scenes there’s a lot going on and a lot I need to post but my inspiration for words hasn’t been there… Until dinner time came and a certain little madam decided to spark a conversation like no other. Since the death of my Nan I’ve lost a lot of faith …

Letter To My Nan – 4 Months

Hi Nan, I’m really struggling this month accepting that I’ll never see you again or be able to feel your warm arms around me as our glasses clash when we hug. I miss you!

Goals & Resolutions For 2014

I’m so relieved that 2013 is nearly over. The start of it wasn’t too bad; we welcomed P2 into our lives, had a pretty awesome weekend away with hubby’s family, went away for the weekend as our own little family, a week camping with my family, on the 3rd September we saw our biggest girl start big school.

Our littlest lady is experiencing major withdrawal symptoms from her big sister today. It started this morning. My hubby got up with P2 and snuggled her into bed with us.
