We Are All Mums – Tommy’s Baby Charity

Mother’s day can be a hard time for many women. For me it’s pretty bitter sweet. My mum passed away when I was 18 years old. She had ovarian cancer and was just 50 years old when she was taken from us too soon. As a mum myself, Mother’s Day is a day that I want to enjoy with my children, but I also want to spend it remembering my own mum. For this reason Mother’s Day can be pretty emotional. It’s also a time when I look back at my own pregnancy with both fondness and gratitude that our… [Read More]

Mother's Day Mood Board

Mother’s day is a rather poignant day for me. When I walk around the shops and see shelves full of Mother’s Day cards, aisles full of ‘Best Mum’ teddy bears and beautiful bouquets of flowers, I can’t help but feel a little sad. You see my mum passed away when I was 18 years old. Mum was just 50 years old. She had ovarian cancer. I try not to think of the sad times though which is why when I was asked by Hotel Chocolat if I’d like to write about my favourite ‘Mum Moments’, I thought I’d share some… [Read More]

Qwerkity Handbag Review – Perfect for Mother’s Day!

I love a good handbag so when I was asked to choose something from the Qwerkity website to review in the run up to Mother’s Day, a handbag was the obvious choice.  As soon as I laid eyes on the Qwerkity Handbag I knew it was the one for me! I love the tapestry design which features the William Morris ‘Strawberry Thief design. I love the mix of colours on the bag, blue, green, orange and red. They compliment each other well and really make the bag stand out and look quite unique in my opinion. I’ve had lots of… [Read More]

What is a mum?

First of all – Happy Mothers Day to all of you wonderful mummies! Today would have been my mums 60th birthday. Sadly she’s no longer here as she passed away almost 10 years ago aged 50. She had ovarian cancer. Today I’ll be with my children, husband and mother-in-law. We’ll share a tasty lunch and most likely talk about the same things we always talk about, but we’ll all be together and happy that way. I was talking to our children, R and M on Friday. They were talking to me about their nanna – my husband’s mum. I told… [Read More]
