A Letter to Myself, 10 Years Ago, on my Wedding Day

29th May 2009 Oh Donna Just look at you. 24 and so beautiful in your dress. You’ve been up for hours for hair and makeup and you didn’t really sleep last night. But you still look as lovely as you had hoped. The hair stylist ends up putting your veil in back to front and having to change it just before you leave for the church, it means your hair…

Happy 6th Birthday Little Man!

Dear Little Man Every year I say this, and every year it’s the same – how are you so big already? How can you possibly be six when you were only turning five two minutes ago. You my youngest, my baby. Because of this I think that everything with you seems to go so much quicker. And just like that you are six. Happy birthday my wonderful boy. This year…

Do you ever sit back and wonder where the time has gone? Well, a few days ago I realised that this website would be turning four today and I couldn’t quite believe it.

Now, you’ve finished your last year at Infants and in a few short days you’ll be starting at Juniors – a whole new chapter in your life. You love school and it has instilled in you a love of…

Happy 5th Birthday Little Man!

Oh Little Man, How are you five already? It feels like yesterday I was writing to you on your fourth birthday and yet, here we are, another whole year down the line. I say this every year but I really think this year has been the best yet. You have grown so much both physically and emotionally and you have cemented yourself as such an important part of our family…

32 Things I Have Learnt Whilst Being 32

Today I am 33. I can’t really say being 33 will be any different from being 32 – or 31 before it. These years aren’t ones of moving house, having new babies, getting married or anything else massively eventful. Instead they are years of enjoying what we have, watching our children grow and just living life. But to mark another year of my life I thought I’d write a list…
