Oh, hi there, elusive Mexican sunshine! Believe it or not, the sunshine has been in (relatively) short supply for the last few days here in San Miguel de Allende, as we now find ourselves in the thick of rainy season. Not that you’ll hear any complaints from me: the cooler climes and the splish-splashy muddy puddle fun for the kiddos have been a rare and novel treat for all of us. For those of you feeling similarly upbeat & optimistic on this #CheeryTuesday (if that’s not a thing, I think it should be), maybe it’s also worth me flagging that there have recently been some exciting developments in the UK’s #endloneliness/ #BeMoreUs movement, and I’ll be writing about these soon on the blog. Et voilà – a somewhat tenuous but nevertheless well-meaning dollop of #TuesdayCheer for you. Here’s hoping the rest of the week ahead is a good one for all of you! #parenting #mumblog #parentingblogger #parenthood #motherhood #charity #charitypr #charitycampaigns #letstalkloneliness #community #lonelinessawarenessweek #brightenmyday #ukmummyblogger #ukmums #colourfulMums #colourinmysquare #ukmummyblogger #ukmums #colourfulMums #colourinmysquare

Community creativity: connecting, building, communicating. 
We loved this from @amazingscenemachine with @womensinstitute and @brislingtonwi as part of Loneliness Awareness Week last week.
Every individual has their place in the scene, they are part of the picture. .

“Oh Nala, what a bonny face you have“ so says Jean Purves who has Wag Team, Nala and Stephanie,  visiting her every week at home in Newcastle.  During the week when her family are working,  Jean has carers to help out and she says she most looks forward to “her dog” on a Monday and the Lunch Club on a Tuesday.  Wag’s mission is to make friendships like this happen all across our region because, as you can see, it really matters .. 🐶❤️🐶 #LonelinessAwarenessWeek #LetsTalkLoneliness #wearewag #prettyrottie

Brainstorming ideas and getting everything sorted for #mummycycle 
It feels incredible and amazing to be a part of something that can help mums out there, that like us feel it’s more then #postnataldepression and feel worse in mood around their #periods 
I was diagnosed with #pmdd after years of fighting, but it became more apparent when I had my son. I felt so #lonely and #isolated I felt everyone was judging me and constantly giving me their unwanted opinions and advice!
I was lucky I had great support networks, but it’s still a struggle and difficult. We want mums out there who feel they may have a hormone disorder or if they just feel awful around their periods to know that there is support for them. 
We will be holding some events in #bristol but looking at taking these events all over for mums.

We've had help from all quarters over our Loneliness Awareness Week. But this one, chief quality tester in the biscuit department, has to be one of the sweetest.
.
Young to old, big business and small independents, communities and individuals, doers, poets, artists, connectors, broadcasters, dog walkers, gardeners, parents, grandparents, carers.... We can't thank you all enough. You have made a difference, started a conversation about loneliness that has been for too long relegated to silent sighs and unspoken words.
.
Do help us keep this conversation going. Our work won't stop. We hope you'll join us on that journey. We hope that you will spread our mission and message.
.
Thank you.

Lovely words from Audrey Hepburn. Always remember to help others. #HelpingOthers #ElderlyCare #Kindness #LonelinessAwarenessWeek #FridayFeeling
Art and creativity can be a fantastic way for people to come together. Often it can be a way to express what is otherwise inexpressable, or excruciatingly difficult to form into words. 
It brings us together in a shared experience. It connects. Old, young, able, less able, successful,  crumbling, strong, weak - we all need to connect, to find our tribe.
What a wonderdul experience for these young people. Great work being done here! .

With enough lines, crevices & creases between us to give a pan-American roadmap a run for its money, I think it’s fair to say the telltale signs of sleepless nights, angst + worry that come with this #parenting shizzle are starting to show. Yet also hidden somewhere between the heavy-duty eyebags and the maze-like mass of wrinkles on display here are what I like to think of as deeply-seated and well-spent laughter lines: mementos of the fun times, the fab times and the sublimely silly times – memories which, much like the facial indentations that portray them, will be forever etched into our cosmetic and psychological makeup. The memories in question are the invaluable by-products of the countless kicks and giggles we’ve been fortunate enough to share with family members and friends from all corners of the globe – and it’s these #relationships and human connections that have helped us to survive, and, dare I say it, thrive. It’s been a busy old month, what with Father’s Day, two family birthdays, visits from the in-laws and the bearded one now preparing to pack his bags for a ten-day work trip (Lord help me), but the overarching theme amongst the madness has been one of #community, support, #friendship and #kindness from our nearest and dearest. Fresh-faced, dewy-skinned Instagram-worthy models we certainly are not, but beneath the creased, cracked & probably a bit crooked surface of this rather haggard-looking duo is a whole lot of love for all the fab people in our lives. For anyone else trying to no longer give two hoots about the impending wrinkles and focus more on the important stuff in life – togetherness, support networks, #mentalhealth and #wellbeing – I’d encourage you to check out the latest from the brilliant @marmalade_trust, who’ve been leading the way this week in the fight against #loneliness, as part of the UK’s #LonelinessAwarenessWeek. With bags of ideas, tips & tricks on how to engage with those in your local community who might be feeling a bit isolated or lonely for all number of reasons, I guarantee you’ll come away feeling inspired + raring to get out there and make a difference. Why not give it a whirl? Pic by the brilliant Stephen Lead

Loneliness Awareness Week

Loneliness is a real issue for parents. You can go from being in the work place with a busy social life to being at home with this tiny human, who is entirely reliant on you. And everyone else seems to cope so much better. Add in sleep deprivation and all those hormones and the parenthood can be a lonely place. When I had my first baby we'd just moved from to a new town, which I knew we weren't planning on staying in. I felt like I knew no one and all the mums from antenatal classes were living it up in the city centre with their babies who slept all night and followed a routine. Then I went to Bookbugs where I met a wonderful mum who's peedie boy was 3 weeks older than my daughter. It didn't take long for us to establish that we were both feeling pretty similar and that how we were feeling was normal! When we moved again a few months later I felt more confident in chatting to other mums. Bookbugs was again my first stop when I moved to Kirkwall. Thanks to the kindness of a couple of awesome mums along the way I've gone from being shy, lonely and frankly terrified to loving parenthood (most of the time) and having the most wonderful circle of friends. This isn't meant to be an advert but if it hadn't been for Bookbugs, PEEP group, Sing & Sign, Boob Club and Peedie Puffins I don't know how I'd cope. The first step is scary but please know you're not the only one feeling how you're feeling. Go to a group, smile at someone else, talk about how you're feeling and lets tackle loneliness together.

This image is from #bristolcookbookclub and this group of food lovers have been a great way of me to express my love of food but also meet new people and meet some people in person who I've met in these squares.
New friendships and a natter over food can be amazing tonic to crippling loneliness.

“I just feel a bit lonely.” - not words you ever want to hear quietly drift up from the mouth of your loved ones; your grandmother, your child, or indeed from your own. These are words to break a heart, that of the one saying them and of the one hearing them. I have been so touched to come across @marmalade_trust charity. This week they have launched Loneliness Awareness Week. It is so incredibly easy to become isolated, disconnected, excluded and subsequently lonely for all sorts of unexpected reasons, even in the busiest of lives and at absolutely any age, from the youngest to the oldest of us. The @marmalade_trust are working to tackle loneliness across society with some wonderful events and initiatives - yesterday was gentle dance at @bristoltrinity, today a shared reading group, a walk and a film screening all in different locations. Please do check out their website for more information and for ideas on what you might be able to do, for those close to home and also further afield. The world becomes more unstable by the day, let’s try to give each other a helping hand if at all possible. All love 💜

‪You could be surrounded by people in your day to day life, have a huge social media friend list and still experience deep, pervasive loneliness.  Unsurprisingly, isolation can have a serious detrimental effect on one's mental and physical health. Joining a choir is a well recognized way to beat loneliness.  #lonelinessawarenessweek

Loneliness is a sneaky critter, getting around unseen, touching anyone it can find. But we're better than loneliness, we're stronger & kinder.  This #LonelinessAwarenessWeek try a little extra kindness to those around you.

This week I'm supporting @marmalade_trust as it's #lonelinessawarenessweek.
When I first moved to Bristol I was offered a dream job in London so became a weekend dweller in one city and a work dweller in another. It made it hard to form friendships. One thing I did do was bake and cook as it helped start conversations when I took my wares to the office and baking is a brilliant way to calm your brain. I even ended up baking for a magazine for a while!

We're baking #connectioncake for #LonelinessAwarenessWeek
with this delicious marmalade a neighbour gave us. 
If you are planning to come along to toast this week please consider joining our sharing table and enjoy a piece of our connection cake, for free. Or perhaps you might like to take a piece away to brighten someone else’s day by calling in with a piece of cake for them… what better way is there  to reach out and start a conversation… .

The May edition of in the moment did not disappoint....
Loved the article about Amy Perrin founder of the Marmalade Trust, which raises awareness on loneliness, such an important topic.

Also loved the idea of a Happy Hut, a space to relax and escape.
I shall put that one on my wish list 😆

It’s nearly Monday and for some the weekend will have been a long lonely time. That’s why we are so passionate about our new initiative #meetupmondays We how have over 20 willing welcoming warm-hearted hosts opening their businesses to folk fed up with looking at the same four walls! A free cuppa and toast or biscuits and most importantly company and chat in, (as a MeetUpMondayer put it) a ‘real life’ place! If you are looking to go along or if you are a pub or cafe thinking of being a host, go to www.meetupmondays.org.uk for the list and for the contact form. And PLEASE spread the word offline. This has already been life changing for some. Let’s spread it far and wide! Simple, kind, generous and effective!
