Jubilee Weekend – Strawberry Picking

Back to work again after what has been a lovely family filled break this past Platinum Jubilee Holiday.

Going Through Changes

This year so far and the tail end of last has been a period of growth, going through changes, facing past insecurities, learning, hurting and trying to evolve into a better version of myself.

Going on Safari – toddler days out

Currently tucked up under a make shift sofa bed with our little guy fighting off a viral infection, who thankfully seems to be feeling more himself today so whilst we are house bound this felt like the right time to reflect whilst the little guy snoozes.

What will be will be

There is nothing more comforting to me as a natural deep thinker / worry wart than the phrase, ‘what will be will be’, or ‘what is meant for you will be yours’. I’ve come to learn that although I consider myself to have had a fairly safe, secure, happy and comfort filled childhood, there have…
