I am a terrible mother!

It’s hard enough being a young single working mum but even harder when your child is not ‘lil miss perfect.’

New and updated blog for 2017!

It has been a very long time since I last used this medium to voice my views, feelings and really just to inspire.

A lot has happened since I last posted on here, both good and indifferent but its given me the motivation to get back on my blogging.  To be honest, I have in mind some kind of direction, focus and vision for this page and that is to speak from my heart…

Please spread only positivity on this page, as love is the only true healer.

Thank you in advance.
