NaBlOpoMO Day 1


Well today I had a visit from one of My dearest friends Chelle McCann and she convinced me to join in with NaBloPoMo to take my mind of the current events in my life and I rather daftly agreed!

I have recently been left by my partner of 18 years and Husband of 6 years 5 weeks after giving birth rather traumatically by emergency C-Section to my son at 35 weeks weighing with him weighing  just 3lb 8oz. I had a horrific and very toxic pregnancy that caused my arthritis to flair to levels of pain I did not know existed and caused me to have to use crutches from May to recently as my legs were so swollen I could not walk!

I am going to use this blog a day as an opportunity to write about my progress since my husband left and how I am doing as a newly singly Mummy to my 4 year old daughter and now 11 week old son. This project will help take my mind off the current  raw and emotional state i regularly find myself in and work through some of the crap that is being thrown at me.

I will say this year has been awful BUT the best thing that has come out of it is my gorgeous son, my children keep me strong and literally get out of my bed every day ;o)

So bring on the challenge and it will be with a  tiny baby and a 4 year old in tow!

  1. Hope NaBloPoMo helps you through this process. I’ve been a single parent for 11 years pretty much and have a 3 year old son so I can sympathise a bit.

    Happy to meet for a coffee should you fancy a venting session some day. It gets easier. I promise it does.

    • Thank you what a lovely thing to say. this will definitely be cathartic for me I will never give details but it is more about my emotions and how i handle them for the benefit of my children.

      • I know what you mean. I blog for that reason too. Sometimes it helps to get stuff out as a way of moving on from it. You don’t need to put details in – people don’t need them to be able to see what’s happening anyway. Be gentle on yourself.
