I’M grumpy, snappy and incredibly irritable at the moment. So you have my apologies. As does everyone in fact who has to ‘put up’ with me at the minute, because to be quite frank, I’m just not myself right now. All thanks to my beautiful back which just does not want to play ball at the moment or do anything in fact. It’s not very happy you see. Not happy
THE greatest mentor I have in my life currently is a two year old girl. My two year old girl in fact. Elsie, my beautiful daughter. I always used to think, before I became a Mum, that a parent was the only one to teach in a parent / child relationship.

TODAY’S post is dedicated to a special little boy called Hugo. And to his Mummy Leigh – a blogging friend of mine, a courageous mama and a truly inspiring woman. ———- Every so often in life you come across a story or a person who touches your heart and this is very much the case with Leigh and Hugo.
