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. #itsoktonotbeok  #lonelinessawarenessweek  #wellbeing  #hope  #makeadifference  #pmddpeeps  #regram  #pmddmum  #mumgroup  #instamum  #instahealthy  #mentalhealthawareness  #maternalmentalhealth  #mumhealth  #mumssupportingmums  #lonelinessawarenessweek  #mumsnet  #beingmum  #parenting 
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.

Scariest thing iv ever done & totally cringing watching myself 😂 this week has been crazy, itv interviews, the bristol post, daily mail online + fabulous magazine.. but im so proud of myself for doing it and helping the @marmalade_trust to raise awareness of loneliness in the younger generation and hopefully get others to open up too.. it’s definitely something we shouldn’t be afraid to talk about and admit.. motherhood is terrifying and SO lonely sometimes. If me talking about my own experiences helps just one other person it will all be so worth it ❤️ #lonelinessawarenessweek#loneliness#lonelinessawareness#marmaladetrust#letstalk#letstalkloneliness#youarenotalone#motherhood#honestmotherhood#mum#truthaboutparenting#letstalkloneliness#itv#itvwestcountry

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 week I'm supporting #lonelinessawarenessweek and @marmalade_trust.
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.

A heartfelt thank you to wonderful Peter who showed me around Chelsea Pensioners explaining how many of the residents have experienced loneliness in the past but now enjoy a full life in great company. A new friend made and a connection cake was shared! Thank you @royalhospitalchelsea

Thank you to everyone who has been getting in to the loneliness awareness week by sharing tables, taking the time to chat and enjoying marmalade cakes Wee Bonnie had a little taster too, lucky dog!

Thank you for my little gift @amyweale Such an important issue. It's no longer just old people who are lonely. We've created a whole new generation of people who feel isolated and lonely, despite us being more connected than ever through technology, it's not the same as the real thing. Social media polarises people's lives too much. It's healthy to spend time by yourself but a feeling of isolation is not. #lonelinessawarenessweek #yourenotalone #letstalkloneliness #modernday @marmalade_trust
