A dream is a wish your heart makes said Cinderella and she was right! It’s nice to have big dreams that you can aspire to isn’t it? I often find myself day dreaming about grand holidays and being on beaches – a lot! The lovely Being Tilly’s Mummy tagged me to write down my wishes for the forthcoming year and I have had lots of fun making them. Here goes; Family Wishes

Following on from my favourite posts of 2016 part one, here is part two with more brilliant bloggers! Bloggers who actually educate you and can forge the way for making changes and making people think differently make me proud to be part of the community. Stevie from A Cornish Mum did this amazingly with her Open Letter to the BBC regarding type 1 diabetes which made people stand up and listen. She really has made me realise the enormity of type 1 and I think she’s amazing how she handles it and spreads the message so brilliantly.

I love a good roundup of posts. There are so many blogs out there that it can be impossible to read them all, so I thought I’d plop them all in one place for you to enjoy with the leftover turkey and chocolates. You’re welcome! All Touched Out by Harriet from Toby and Roo, is an ode to randy partners wanting to have a little grope but after an exhausting day parenting and especially with a breastfeeding toddler, it’s the last thing on our minds! So funny but so true – one to tag your partners in for a gentle…

I thought I’d do a bit of a different post today as the lovely Steph at Mental Parentals tagged me, so here goes: Are you a stay-at-home or a working Mum? I was a working parent with Charlie but took voluntary redundancy when on maternity with the girls as travel and childcare was not viable. Would you have it any other way? There are days where I wish I had a job for myself but I love that my kids know it will always be me picking them up and dropping them off is nice. I also get to attend…

I don’t blog as much as I used to. I vowed this year I wouldn’t take on irrelevant posts and fill my pages with stuff that wasn’t “me” but as the months have ticked by and the posts become fewer and far between, the stats drop and I slip away from social media I wonder how much longer I’m left for the blogging world.  Dramatic? (Ah go on then, may as well ham it up eh?!) Perhaps. But I struggle to find my place. I don’t have a niche; despite the name I don’t post useful twin blogs where expectant…

Since the summer, my regular commenting and posting has somewhat waned. I’m hoping to get my groove back and in 2016 to start regularly commenting, as along with commenting brings new blogs. There’s nothing like finding a new blogger with a style and flare that you love and admire. You furiously search their site trying to find out everything about them and their back story. I thought I’d put together a quick post of three blogs that I’ve discovered and have become an avid reader of in 2015. Please don’t be offended if I haven’t included you; this is just a selection…

Last week, one of my favourite bloggers closed down her blog. With literally millions of other blogs out there you would think OK, plenty more fish in the sea, but I was surprised at my reaction. I have never met this blogger yet when I read her final post, I felt incredibly sad, deflated and a little bit lost.  Blogging is a funny old thing. I spent the first year being incredibly secret about the whole thing and even now I don’t share it on my personal Facebook (unless I drop a bollock and do it by accident!) so most…
