Trying to get into some sort of routine. Not quite achieving it yet.
Eating my body weight in Easter chocolate. My son doesn’t like Easter eggs. And he received about 15 of them! Which means that his chocoholic, sleep deprived Mum is munching her way through them.
I am a believer that things happen to us for a reason. Obstacles and difficulties are lessons in disguise.
It can be hard to justify pain and poverty and often life can just seem so unfair. Some people suffer more than others and often it’s a postcode lottery. Depending on where, when and to whom in the world you were born can determine your fate.
I have written a series of posts about a recent trauma I went through experiencing secondary postpartum haemorrhage.
I find writing helps me to make sense of my feelings and hope it can help anybody going through something similar.
Every month I want to make three small changes to make an overall difference to my peace of mind, health and wellbeing. Why don’t you join in too?
Here are my goals for March:
I think us women are prone to giving ourselves a hard time.
Weight is a big issue for a large percentage of the ladies I know. Many of us are constantly on a diet, watching our weight, signing up to gym memberships and chasing the ‘perfect body’.
Pregnancy the second time around is a whole different experience. I do not know how people do it three, four, five times! Maybe it’s the sheer fatigue taking over but I cannot imagine having more than two children!
My three year old feels increasingly challenging at the moment. I’m sure he senses that I don’t have much energy so is running rings around me! I feel guilty that I don’t have the energy to do more activities with him at home or take him out more but I am trying my best. It won’t be forever.
Motherhood. It is undoubtedly a different experience for every women. Although we share common challenges and learning curves, defining Motherhood is something that is very unique to each of us.
On Sunday 14th August 2016, I married the love of my life and became Mrs Skarratt. We got married at The Inn on the Lake on Lake Ullswater, Glenridding which is in the beautiful lake district. As with most good things in life, the day was certainly worth the wait, just like those who took the plunge before me told me it would be. I’m happy to say none of my many wedding nightmares came true!
Wow six years since our first date. How time flies. Just when maybe a small part of me had given up in my search for true love, you came along and proved to me that good guys do still exist.
Our first date was perfect. We’d held a flirtation at work, at a distance for some months by this time. I thought it would only ever be a little crush with you being five years younger than me. I couldn’t possibly date somebody so much younger than me right?
Happy Birthday Daddy. I hope that wherever you are you will be having a good knees up today.
I was actually due on your birthday and I arrived into the world exactly a week late. Mum told me how you rocked me and sung to me for hours after I was born and said I was the best birthday present you’d ever had. We’d always get so excited in the run up to our birthdays and loved celebrating them together.
