All sorts go in here but mainly pieces personal to me. From my anxiety to how  I’m generally feeling at a particular time.

Anxiety and me

Anxiety and me

78 days (at this current time) since the doctor told me to take time out. 78 days since I was told I have anxiety and stress. I could break it down to the hours and minutes. This winter we had snow, enough snow to build a igloo. With nothing but a ice cream tub and a few pairs of gloves we had a good go at building a igloo. I told Dylan to be really careful as we started to…

Tuesday’s thoughts – Being a exausted working mum

Living in the Sticks

Living in the Sticks

  I’m not sure where the past six years have gone. The time here at Garden Cottage has flown by.  At times it is hard and has been a huge challenge but I wouldn’t change it for the world. I lived in Manchester for 18 years. Dylan was born at Salford Royal and has spent so much time visiting Manchester over the years he thinks of it as home as much as living in Herefordshire. I grew up in the…
