Yesterday I posted about my book, Time for Bed Baby being awarded the Bizzie Baby GOLD Award in the books and magazine category! WHOOP! Thank you so much to everyone for all your kind words and messages. I am over the moon obviously but my why behind writing this book was never for awards or […]
There’s a definite time frame around how much longer I am able to share stories about my children, share their experiences and emotions. I know that. I am, after all, sharing information that is only partly mine to share but, this story is something I have heard not just from my child. I have heard […]
Ever since the Government voted against extending free school meals last week I have been churned up with a horrible mix of guilt and gratitude, rage and frustration and the constant question of What can we do…? How can we help? Ever since I started working with children and young people my mantra has been; […]
So here we are. Last night, just before bed I checked my Instagram feed. I know that endless end of day scrolling through social is rarely a mood booster but it is what it is. I’ll put it on charge it downstairs tonight, pinky swear. Anyhow, on this occasion it turned out to be a […]
Hi di Hi Campers! Happy Thursday 😊 I hope this post finds you well despite the continuing coronacoaster that we are all riding.

Picking home schooling back up after opting to take the two week Easter holiday has been tough. Really tough! The girls haven’t been as engaged as they were pre break, I have more work on than I did before (wich is great) the weather is gorgeous (which is a massive blessing) we have a new […]

Under normal circumstances; we experience moments of joy and pleasure which “fill our cups” and make us better able to roll with the usual ups and downs of everyday life.
Without these cup filling experiences our reserves become depleted and it is harder for us to bounce back from annoyances and irritations which we would usually be able to brush off.
One thing that is certainly true is that, although we are all in this together, each of us will be experiencing this differently. We will each have a different perspective and the time it takes for us to process information will vary too. We are all beautifully flawed and unique humans so our reactions will be unique too.
