Today was dye day for my class. We used madder, and the ladies really pulled together as a small class to work efficiently and get things done well. We found some errors and omissions from the textbook, which we dealt with, and they got some beautiful muted oranges, pinks, browns, and greens. There was still a lot of colour left in the dye bath, so afterwards we brought it back to the classroom, and I tossed in my untreated skeins to sit in solution for the next couple days. We’ll see what happens! Such fun! #teamwork#goodjob#lifeofaspinninginstructor#fibreweek#naturaldye#madderroot
My support networks were what helped me through the bad days! Reminding me what a great mother I was, this gave me a little hope and reassurance.
We want to give that back to other mums out there. Remember you are inspirational to us, you might not feel it but you are raising you’re babies whilst battling with PMDD and that is really hard.
Mums who struggle with their mental health due to PMDD, often feel guilty for feeling and having certain emotions, thoughts. This can manifest and make us feel like the worse mother ever! (Your not) We begin to question everything we do and who we are as a mother!
It’s hard enough being a parent without having PMDD. These mums push daily through the hard days and dark times while still showing such love and compassion for their children. Well, us at Mummy Cycle finds that inspirational and us PMDD mums shouldn't feel that we are being judged or criticised when we speak up, and we shouldn’t be made to feel guilty for many things.
What we should remember is we are doing the best and hardest job in the world... Being a mum
