I am writing this with a bit of a knot in my stomach as tomorrow morning I am taking my daughter into hospital for surgery. She is having grommets fitted which I know is a very routine and relatively quick operation but it still gives me that dreaded knot feeling. She will be under general aesthetic and I get to bring her home the same day so I am planning lots of treats and Frozen re-runs.
Being a mother is hard work – emotionally hard work. Its an amazing gift and an incredible journey and no one tells you how much love you will have for your children… or at least you can’t imagine how you will feel until it happens. Its certainly knocked me for six. The responsibility I have for this little person. The decisions I have to make for her. There’s nothing quite like the love between a parent and their child.
Another weekend gone in a flash… a slightly blurred flash after yesterdays girly lunch continued into the evening and involved far too much tequila and at least one too many espresso martinis. So with a dull head I write my Sunday post and I am looking forward to a fresh week ahead.
I wanted to touch on ‘approval’ and the way it affects the way we live our lives. The way fear of being criticised or judged by friends, family and even strangers holds us back.
Happy Friday! Confession time, and this week I have been busy buying Spanish… namely Mango & Zara. The collections are just stunning this season, taking inspiration from the runways the gypsetter trend is everywhere. Anything with embroidery, pom-poms, lace or ruffles and I am sold!
This beautiful skirt has amazing embroidery front to back and is perfect for day with flats and in the evenings with some metallic heels.
I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend, they just fly by, seems even quicker now as a family!
In a bid to try and help get rid of that dreaded Sunday anxiety I have pulled together some inspiration for the week ahead… inspo shots to help me enjoy each day no matter what it throws at me, eat healthily, have fun, exercise, feel good in my clothes, make the most of these ratty locks and be the best mother, daughter, sister, friend and wife that I can be. As a mother, especially a new mother, it is so easy to put yourself last but if you’re happy and healthy everything else falls into places…
