Little Loves {5th June}



I really enjoyed taking part in Morgana’s linky Little Loves last week, it’s a great rounding up to share, so I am back. Do check out Morgana’s blog she is a total sweetheart.


I have read lots of blog posts this week, I love reading and commenting on blogs, it is part of the community I think is not as strong as it was years ago, so I set myself a target to comment on 40 posts a week and I am loving it.

A post from Goblin Child stuck in brain the most. The post is a letter to the man who donated the sperm to help bring their beautiful twins into the world. It’s a moving and honest read and it really touched my heart, I always think of my brothers future when reading posts like this, hoping one day he will have a family.


We went to the Zoo last Saturday with family, it was Deacon’s first time since being tiny, at just under 2 I thought he would have little interest as attention spans are not great at this age.

I was so wrong, Deacon stood at every cage with such intensity, he would jump with joy flapping his arms every time an animal met his vision, he would try to repeat the names and did not want to move on for fear of missing something.

It was just magical as a Mummy.


It’s all about the shoes this week. I am so pleased to have finally found a pair of brogues I love. They are from Clarks and are the softest material, with cut out detail they are perfect for Summer.

I have also of course started wearing my Sun Jellies again as much as possible, I love Sun Jellies, they are super comfy, rocking colours and work with most outfits.

I love listening to music but don’t get to do it all to often as it disturbs Grayson somewhat. But as Addison and Deacon get older it is becoming apparent they have a love of music, singing and dancing.

Addison and I went for a little car trip and she just kept telling me to turn it up louder and louder. Only Ashley’s CD was in the car so we sung loudly, windows open to Paolo Nutini, New Shoes. It was fun, ordinary and what parenting is about.


 I managed to film 3 VLOGs this week, I love doing them, it is the one place I can fake confidence. The one I uploaded this week is a simple Q&A, I really enjoyed answering such interesting questions.



Thank you for the massive amount of support, love and comments I have received following my post about Grayson’s new news. I was in such a bad place the beginning of the week but thanks to all that love I am now starting to be in a good place, it wont be an easy journey but with friends like you all we will fight and come out the other side.

Also I am so excited for June, not only have I got a new blog theme, Deacon turns 2, but I am off to Blogtacular and BritMumsLive – whoop whoop!
