The Military and Me.

Living the Military life is a constant emotional rollercoaster. Beeming with pride when you look at what your spouse is prepared to do to protect others then weep when you see how lonely your children are, having to move their entire life so regularly. To help minimise some of the sadness, this podcast has been…

Farewell to Twelve Rotten Months

This year has brought so much misery and I for one can’t wait to see the back of it. It started with the most awful news about a very special little girl who has spent the whole year fighting and kicking the crap out of Cancer. Her fight is ongoing. She is my HERO. We…

Dear Feminists You’re Confusing Me…

Ladies let me say first of all, I am absolutely thrilled with the shift of power women now hold. Over time women have won the right to use their voice and be deemed as equal in so many vital situations, such as laws created against domestic violence…how that was ever OK is anyone’s guess. But…

We miss what you would have been…

It’s that time of the year again when we stop and reflect. Baby Loss Awareness week. My heart still aches when I recall that dreadful day we were told by the sonographer “I’m so sorry your baby’s heart has stopped beating”.

I’m not always OK!

I sat on Wednesday this week and was delighted to see so much support for World Mental Health Day.

The Absolute Definition of Strength

Today I got to wrap my arms around and squeeze so tightly three out of four of the strongest most incredible people I have the absolute pleasure of calling my dearest friends. At the beginning of the year my friend’s little girl who was only three years old at the time, was diagnosed with Leukemia….

Diary of a Military Wife…

As I approach my seventh year being the Wife of a serving member of the Royal Air Force, I have to admit it’s honestly the hardest way to live a life with a family. Like so many brave people who serve for Queen and Country, my husband and I accepted our life would be a…

My Disney World Tips and Favourites

I get asked lots and lots about Disney recommendations and tips and I could honestly talk about it for hours and hours. We are a Disney obsessed family and I have spent hours and hours over the last few years researching and planning and finding really helpful tips that I can share with others and…

Oopsie Disney we’re officially addicted…

In May 2016 we booked a two-week holiday in Disney World Florida with a work bonus my Husband received and little did we know it would change our entire outlook on life and how we would holiday for the foreseeable. After the long 9-hour flight from the UK to Orlando with two children aged 4…
