What to do on a ☔️ day..... Such a fun day out @sealifemanc2018 Avi absolutely loved it!
I’ve been thinking a lot about acceptance (after one of my goodbyes being, “I accept you for all that you are, I hope you find someone else who accepts you just as much or more.” Yeh I know, grab yer sick bucket!) and appreciation. They’re, to me, the 2 fundamental parts of relationships with friends, family, lovers or you know, just 2 things that every person needs.  I had a hard slump yesterday and it was hard to even want to get out of bed after a nap mid morning this morning (day 2 of insomnia...). My mum was the reason I did as I’d have beat myself up if I didn’t see her today. We had a day out in Manchester but slightly more grown up than being >15 when all we’d do was shop!  The @thejohnrylands was stunning! A must see and particularly with their current exhibition on the women who made Manchester! Of course we had to make a trip to @waterstonesmcr for old times sake as we’d spend literally hours in there whilst I was growing up (I first opened a #harrypotter book in their cafe). I know I’m appreciated and accepted by many for all my flaws and great bits but no one as much as my mum. So here’s the best and funniest selfie of the day before my battery dies on the train back to Runcorn. I’m still panicking about everything but my mum helps everything to simmer instead of boil over and after yesterday, that’s what I needed. #day51 #90daydiary #90daydepression #depression #anxiety #ptsd #insomnia #mumsknowbest #metoo #notalone #endthestigma #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #suicideprevention #triggeredandlost #itsoktonotbeok #thisiswhatdepressionlookslike #selfie #mumanddaughter #smile #bookworm

I wanted to give a high five ✋🏻 to all the amazing mums out there with little ones who have started School this month! It’s so hard letting go of your little ones & letting them walk through those classroom doors alone. I remember when George (my youngest) started his first day. I dropped him off, went home, had a cuppa & cried! I missed him sooooo much. Now 3 years later I can’t wait to ship them both off in the morning 🙈 No matter how much time I give myself it’s never enough. I can never predict what they are going to do when we have only 5 minutes to get out of the door. The relief I feel with that first cup of tea ☕️ When I finally have peace and quiet, when I can pat myself on the back after I’ve managed to remember everything in the morning, & they are fed, dressed & packed up ready for the day! Ah the joys of motherhood.
Today I made falafels for him and they got thrown at the dog 🙈The reality of weaning and feeding kids is it’s gets thrown back at you faster than you served it sometimes. And it’s so disheartening having slaved away making nutritious food for them so I understand why parents resort to feeding the same few meals as it’s failsafe, but I know from nutritional advise and the books I’ve read you have to keep offering new things for them to try.  Rudy recently has started to not feed himself and moans when I put him in his chair (unless we are at a restaurant then he is happy as Larry!) and because of this I’ve resorted back to cartoons and I can pretty much get anything into him if postman pat or pepper pig is on. I feel I’ve got to go cold turkey on this and get him loving feeding himself again... anyone else found this? How would you do it? Is he too young at 15 months to understand that if he doesn’t eat he will be hungry? What would you do? #weaning #mumsknowbest  Thanks @nateberkus for my jumper it finally fits!!!
This is the way we brush our hair, brush our hair, brush our hair 🎶 morning bath time fun
Not every 11 years old's dream birthday present but our 11 year old chef is beside herself. Awesome surprise for her as this was released yesterday. Will post photos of the ruby chocolate dishes she comes up with! #rubychocolate #savourschool #exciting #11yearoldchef #mumsknowbest

Today we had buns 👌🏼💞
Please mind my sleepy child who has just woken up and still in pyjamas!!! However I wanted to talk about his walker..this is by far his most favourite walker, its the perfect height and has a locking system on the wheels so when he is learning to stand it doesn’t slip! Even though Avi is now walking he still goes back to it 🙌🏻 @argoshome @chicco_international
Something my mum said has really stuck in my head and makes so much sense to me, she said ‘you can be the healthiest person who eats all the right foods and does all the exercise, but holding onto resentment or anything negative is one of the most toxic things you can do to yourself’ I’m sure we all can relate to this in some way, but if we just let go of that resentment or negativity and instead be kind, wouldn’t that be so much better and less hassle? #lifestooshort #letgo #bekind #mumsknowbest #minesapychotherepistsoshedoes #healthymindandbody #goodvibesonly #foodforthought
I always worry when he walks out of our bathrooms as I have no idea what he has got up to 🙈 mischievous face!!! #hey #hello #hi
