Mummy Squirrel

IMG_0197Being a Mum is hard work and tiring, but is extremely rewarding. One of the things I have realised since becoming a Mum is how important it is to look after myself and take time out to enjoy some “me time”.

Here I hope to share with you some of the things I love…

  • Look At The Stars, Look How They Shine For You… - Today is the anniversary of the day I lost my Mum to cancer.

  • The Boy On The Christmas Stamp - In 1904 a Danish postal clerk came up with the idea of a charitable stamp that could be used on mailed Christmas greetings in order to raise money to fight tuberculosis.
