Dear Mummy, emotions always run high during the Festive period. All the pressure and expectation of putting on a great Christmas can leave you feeling a bit flat in the New Year. Just like returning from a fab holiday many … Continue reading
Dear Mummy, this is our last post for 2015 and what a year it’s been! We’ve been really lucky with the experiences we’ve had and the people we’ve met along the way thanks to this little blog. It’s been a … Continue reading
Dear Mummy, every year I am subjected to your New Year’s resolutions. In January we all start to eat a bit better, we go on more walks together and try to get to bed earlier. However this year I have … Continue reading
Dear mummy, I’ve thought long and hard about my Christmas Wish List this year. Scouring Pinterest and ‘Not On The High Street for perfect ideas. I shouldn’t really be so materialistic, you don’t really need an embroidered pillow to say how … Continue reading
My mummy sees things in black and white at the moment with the odd speckles of grey.

We’ve had an interesting start to the year already. Self doubt, sickness, stress and all round ‘meh’.
This new year I want her to see the rainbows in her life. All the colours that life has to offer.
Red, not like anger but family. Blood is thicker than water she needs to make more of an effort with her family.
Orange, like the ones I eat, the little segments each representing an aspect of her life. Husband, me, work, routine, personal time, hobbies, sleep. All parts of the orange together makes her whole.
Yellow, not just sickness (like the colour of my nappies) but the goodness and caring. Having the patience, courage and strength to be a better mum when things get tough.
Blue, not just sadness but new horizons. Blue skies and sunny days are hopefully lying ahead.
Purple, the colour of Cadbury’s chocolate wrappers. In life you can NEVER have too much chocolate! Life is like a box of chocolates as someone famous once said…you never know what you’re gotta get. This new year, don’t limit yourself with things you can’t have. Silly fad diets and restrictions on things that make you happy. Just be happy.
We love this artwork from Stephanie Block, a local artist in Hampshire. We proudly hang it in our house and it serves a gentle reminder to put things into perspective when life gets tough.
Dear mummy, always look for the rainbow after the storm.
Love Bella x
