JUDGEMENT

June 24, 2020
Picture description - Me holding Sawyer. We are standing in fields and it’s sunny. We have summer clothes on, and I have my dark hair down.

I can’t believe this one is going to be 1 this weekend. I know everyone says the same thing, but I honestly don’t know where that year has gone. Sawyer is the sweetest, happiest baby and has bought me so much joy in the midst of my despair over my Stargardts diagnosis.  I got told by another mum this past week, that she saw absolutely no logic in me having another child knowing that I have a genetic, progressive eye…

Behind The Smile

February 17, 2020
Smile

“It’s not always the tears that measure the pain. Sometimes it’s the smile we fake”. Most people will have heard by now of the tragic death of Caroline Flack ♥️ the woman who seemed to have the perfect life and the brightest smile. We seem to assume that if someone appears happy on the surface and especially on social media, then all must be ok. It’s so very easy to hide behind a smile, a smile is easy to fake.…

Remembering You

February 4, 2020

Yesterday I said goodbye to my Grampa George. It was honestly one of the hardest days of my life, but something I couldn’t avoid and just had to get through it. It was a lovely day as strange as that sounds, and he would have been proud of his send off. I would do anything to have just one more conversation with him 💙, but I know that this can’t and won’t happen.  The last few years have taught me that life can…

You will always be in my heart, because there you are still alive 💙

January 15, 2020
Me and My Grampa George

On Thursday evening, my Grampa passed away suddenly. I will never forget the phone call from my mum. My Grampa was the only constant and consistent male relative in my life from the day I was born and was more like a dad to me 💙. It was so much better for him to have left us the way he did, but because he left without warning, I feel like I haven’t been able to say all of the things…

The reason why we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind the scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel

January 1, 2020
Me, not looking sad on the outside, but sometimes we are on the inside.

This is so true and something I struggle with a lot. New Years is one of the hardest times  for me mentally as I hate all the pressure of feeling you have to have big goals and huge dreams when in reality a big goal may just be getting out of bed and a huge dream may just be making it to the end of the week without losing it and do you know what, that is ok. New year…

Purple Tuesday With today being purple Tuesday, I thought it would be a good day to discuss what I have been invited to on Thursday evening, but first here is a bit about today 💜. Purple Tuesday is a day that makes customer facing businesses more aware and is to inspire them to improve a disabled persons customer experience when shopping with them. By a company making just one positive change to their business for accessibility, it will create a wider…

Baby Wearing

September 11, 2019
Me baby wearing on the beach.

When I first had Sawyer, I tried my hardest to breast feed as not being able to with Harvey really got me down at the time. Sawyer was perfect at latching but was such a big baby, I struggled to provide him with enough to ever settle him. The main reason I gave it up however, was that I was desperate for my hormones to settle to give my eyes some kind of a chance to right themselves after having…
