Sometimes life keeps throwing you the same lesson to learn until you finally discover a new way of reacting or dealing with it. I know this is certainly true with me and I'm watching it in Mouse. The determination she has to learn new skills. First she'll try, then she shouts at it (like me) then she shouts for someone, then she watches me do it and finally she copies.it doesn't matter how young or old we are; we can constantly change our behaviour and our choices, we have compete control over what happens next and that's as scary as it is empowering. #depression for me attacks when there is too much going on, too much change, too much uncertain... There are a gazillion other factors too but this is the one I'm concentrating on these days. A wise women once told me "we are not saving lives" and I get it now. We are human, we do not always have the answers. We are human, we can't process things as fast as computers. So I'm learning to keep it simple. What needs me now, what can wait. What is important to deal with versus what is imperative to deal with. The important bits and less important bits will be dealt with but only when I have time to get with them and I DO NOT feel guilty for saying I CAN'T ANSWER RIGHT NOW BIT I WILL WHEN I HAVE A MOMENT. @hazel.satine Thank you for being my guide.

It’s July, and the high temp today is 92 degrees. Regardless, Finn woke up, wanted to wear fleece pajamas and a beanie, and he’s been watching out for the “evil toilet and eyeball” in the yard. Never a dull moment with this one! .

My kitchen cost me £360 pounds and we still haven’t finished putting the cabinets or appliances in. We are on a budget, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy shopping around. I’ve decided that getting savvy gives me as much joy as spending thousands. It’s been 6 weeks of wall removals, rotten floorboards, garden digging...my joints hurt, my to do list is longer than the longest piece of string, we’ve got a few cracked windows and a whole house to paint but nothing makes me happier or prouder than this photo. We are home, to stay, to live, to make memories and hopefully to catch up on sleep. Our first breakfast on the table Big D made with the reason we needed a bigger home! #houserenovation #homesweethome #housegoals

I’ve never shot in the rain before, but I ordered this umbrella and kept it in my car hoping for the chance. As we left church Wednesday night the skies opened up unexpectedly. I wrapped my camera/lens with my son’s t shirt and hoped for the best. I’m happy with my first attempt!!!!

She survived her first birthday party.... and what a party it was. Mouse isn’t actually 1 till 8th - but how could you not celebrate early when the weather was like this. What a peachy day! Family and friends came from afar, the cakes got devoured, the kids played happily for hours, no tears, no tantrums and no accidents! It really was totally special, it felt nurturing to do a big Park day after the year we have had. It’s funny people always “don’t stress over it if it won’t matter in a year”, well a year ago I was convinced my world had shattered and was irreparable - but with a lot of forgiveness, love and laughter we made it through and look what we have to show for it. #firstbirthdayparty #londonmummy #taurus

Literally all smiles, discovery, and joy for all but 30 seconds of my time with this energizing family.  But this moment right after I tried to get their babe to snuggle their pup grabbed my heart. With @betsenstein .

I feel like I’m constantly sharing the struggles this one goes through...the struggles we go through.  Although he was up all night with a fever and slept cuddled up next to me, he woke up smiling and continues to be a light. .

In the early days sleeplessness nights become the normal and your body gets used to the deprivation. However when your newborn is nearly a year, after a month or so of sleeping through - it hits you like a ton of bricks. Mouse has 3/4 teeth pushing through and a tummy bug, she literally just wants me and my chest to snuggle on. Last night was the second terrible night,  I have that horrible sick felling tiredness where the day ahead fills me with dread and all I can think of is how Im going to fit a snooze in and how much coffee can I drink before I start shaking. If only I could go back to bed and leave Birdy to it this morning.....mummy is feeling broken! #candidslumber #mybabygirl #lipslikeangelina

I always wanted a sister of my own, in fact I always wanted a twin. I craved the closeness of sharing everything with someone. My brother and I were super close for years and we then embarked in different journeys gor a fair few years and rekindled our siblinghood a few years back. Watching these two makes me so happy, watching Birdy be the big sister.....she takes so much pride in knowing Mouse, and recently they have started having little games and moments - that only sisters can. #myhappycapture #thatsdarling #sisterhood

We’ve been having a few #spiritedchild days - they always come out of f nowhere and leave us all a bit flabbergasted and tiptoeing to stay out of the firing line. Everything was too much for Birdy, too loud, too tight, too quick, too slow, too not right, too complicated and she imploded on me and it’s makes me so cross but so sad for her. So cross that she can’t hear or feels she can’t control it, and so sad that she experienced these meltdowns. We are aiming for a gentle day with no hurdles, I’ll make sure she gets the good she wants. The tv/games she would like to play after school and the time she needs to reset herself. She can always push against me, she can always test that I’m there for her, she can challenge me, infuriate me and I will never leave or abandon as she’s my girl and this is our journey. When is enough enough - never for my daughters. #spiritedkids #emotionalintelligence #raisethemfierce

10 whole months today - so we had a mini Photoshoot! It’s so precious to see her full of glorious smiles again and no ear pulling. I always feel sad that another month has gone by, but actually it’s another month to watch you grow and blossom. Loving you is so easy x #mybabygirl #smiling #candidphotography

Woohoo, we are on the mend! We have a rested house and baby on our hands.... She’s back to crawling, giggling and waking the big girls up in the morning with big smiles.  #happybaby #babygirl #10monthsold

We are having our first seriously tough day at home today. No sleep, no sleep on the horizon, well she was sleeping and then the door bell went. Ear infections suck big time - but somehow my beauty smiles through feeling crap ...I wish I could make whatever it is go away. #beautifulbaby #londonmummy #babyphotographer #shamelessplug @borrowedmomentphotography

Yesterday was a super busy day, Photoshoots, dentist, new House visits and last night was so very long and hard. Mouse was up from 1-1:30 screaming, angry and very unsettled. We tried everything, obviously dealt with pain first, then walking, shushing, then signing, dancing, then leaving her be, we gave a dummy (😳) and then resorted to lying next to her with a firm hand as she seemed to need to vent her fustration with a bit of space from me. It was seriously hard work - I’m still not sure what was going on. We are currently dealing with teething, nappy rash, ear infections and is coming home. I really hope she feels better today and tonight so we can snuggle up and get comfy and repair together. I find juggling the school run virtually impossible with no sleep and have almost lost my rag a few times in the hours I’ve been awake. #tiredmummy #illbaby #parentingishard #ineedcoffee

Taking time to listen is my goal for this week. I always “know” what Birdy is going to say, whether it be one more minute, “can I  have another “or a repeat story of what she told me five minutes ago ...and I’ve noticed that I answer her before I could even have processed what she was saying. Which normally results in her getting ticked off with my lack of an honest response. I know we all do it... that moment when you didn’t really hear what they were saying and you fire off an automated response; which is never satisfactory and always results in “you always say that ...🙄”. So I’m challenging myself to listen to the end, hear, process and then respond. It’s not easy but it will be worthwhile, god knows I hate being cut off mid flow. I just presume as the adult I know what’s needed, but actually it’s the act of being heard, validated, seen that is necessary. Funnily enough the two times I’ve managed to do it we avoided eye rolling and actually had a conversation rather then huffy stompy feet! I know if I can get better at listening everyone will benefit - even Big D and me. #takethetimetolisten #kidshavevoices #raisethemstrong #motherofgirls

So I’m challenging myself to listen to the end, hear, process and then respond. It’s not easy but it will be worthwhile, god knows I hate being cut off mid flow. I just presume as the adult I know what’s needed, but actually it’s the act of being heard, validated, seen that is necessary. Funnily enough the two times I’ve managed to do it we avoided eye rolling and actually had a conversation rather then huffy stompy feet! I know if I can get better at listening everyone will benefit - even Big D and me. #takethetimetolisten  #kidshavevoices  #raisethemstrong  #motherofgirls 
We’ve had a few bad nights since we left #lesgets unfortunately. It started with our flight being cancelled and stuck at the airport for 12 hrs as Geneva airport closed, then Luton closed, then our flight got cancelled twice and we finally made it home - shattered and weary, then Mouse started to teeth which has turned into an eruption cyst on her gum which has caused her so much pain, which obviously keeps her up all night, Birdy was back in bed with us, I was back on the sofa and this morning I feel like a hungover version of myself with very heavy eyes and limited vocabulary. However it’s been amazing coming home, the kids left us LOVE notes everywhere, and we haven’t stopped cuddling and smiling. I have no regrets leaving them, no guilt attached to having fun without them and I’m loving that Big D and I have more memories to pull us through any bad times that may lie ahead. Today I’m off to find a dentist for Mouse, attempting to book in some work and generally hoping I can catch up on some sleep...#holidayisover #happytobehome #motherofgirls #teethingbaby

Being a blended family is quite consuming, your mind is full of lists, clothes to go here and there, who’s home when and who needs feeding. The dymnamic is always changing. Sometimes it feels so bitty and smothered in these constant bittersweet moments. Ones home, ones jealous, ones missing the other, ones away .... but being blended doesn’t stop at our door, it goes on to the other parents too. Birdy seems to be struggling with her Daddy getting married, and Bunny says she prefers being in the big family sometimes over time with her Mummy. We hadn’t realised the impact of Mouse till recently. The big girls go from big noisy busy family to getting one on one time with the others - which sometimes they say can be a bit quiet and lonely. It’s got nothing to do with us but to do with the sisterly bond they have for each other. They/It is really quite incredible..... it’s going to be tough leaving them for a week. I’ve been planning, stocking up food and I’ll start on my lists of routines, clubs and commitments today. WhenI write it all down its going to feel real - we are really going away, to the mountains - together. Mouse has started sleeping and granny managed to get her to sleep last night, it was like a huge weight came  off me .... now just need to find some extra spending money as I spent so much stocking up the house for the week for the kids. 😳 #blendedfamily #raisinggirls #sleepingbaby #mytribe #parenthood

Not the best of photos but the best day and the best of people! Each of these ladies - little and large has played a part in my recovery from depression and Anxiety. They have showed me love, kindness, understanding - offered me laughs, hugs and distractions. A year ago - I couldn’t even face my birthday, I can’t even remember what we did, so this year was pretty magical. Since starting a conversation with my own depression so many people in my life are starting to speak out or to me and it’s awesome. I’ve recently started following @mentalmuthas and I’m she’s awesome. Strong, sassy and very funny ....#depression #anxiety #recovery #bestfriends #birthdaylunch #friendshipgoals

This is our happy place. Big D and I went skiing when we first got together, as we both are so crazy,I mean snow crazy and we were meant to be flying off for a weeks honeymoon to #LesGets for a week on Friday - kid free, snow a plenty, together time but I don’t think I can go. Mouse will not settle or go down for the night with anyone but me. My darling Mummy has been trying over the past month to spend as much time with her, put her to bed...but it results every time in hours of screaming, milk refusal and last night Baby Mouse got so stressed she made herself sick. I can’t do it, I can’t jet off knowing it’s uncomfortable and stressful for everyone involved. I can’t leave her, how could I go and enjoy knowing there’s a chance that it could unsettle her so much. I’m sure she might be fine, but there is also the other side where she might not be. I didn’t sleep last night for sadness on both accounts, not going, and going. I’m stuck and I feel really deflated today. The trip coincides with both of our birthdays too, I’ve told Big D he must go, as he do needs a break and that he should go and take a friend..... it would be a waste of one of us didn’t get to breathe in the peace. So now it looks like I’ll be on my own for a week, on my own for my birthday and on my own for his birthday too. I will of course have my girls with me and be peaceful knowing how much they need me .... but still 😞! #babywontsleep #babysleepconsultant #feelingblue #missingthesnow #nightnanny #doula

Don’t you love it when life shouts -SCENE CHANGE - at full volume at you. Last night as we sat waiting to hear if our offer was accepted we spotted a property that’s much bigger, brighter and suitable for us. It has potential, personality and is priced right! I have been praying and asking the universe for help. I’ve always fought to get everything I wanted and, ha ha, ended up with depression, fear of failure, the not good enough and my dear old friend anxiety.... but I am trying to breathe stay calm, focus and be prepared for change. I’m trying to plan ahead for stress, I mean who sells their home, tries to find a rental before buying whilst they are only in the country for two weeks out of the next 6 weeks. I do! Me, muggins, the Mummy who keeps going, and keeps our family moving forward! So universe, I’m here, open palmed, asking “have you got my back”. #theuniversehasmyback #housemoves #newhome #threekids #anxiety

She’s up and nearly on her feet! Everything is fair game even it results in a bang on the head or a scrape....I have never met a baby as determined as Mouse. She just wants to be with her sisters all day. The smiles she gives them when they come home, it’s more than a smile...it’s like she sees peace and becomes even more content. Yesterday we accepted an offer on our beautiful home and are now eagerly waiting to hear on our next move but either way where ever we lay our hat this little Monkey will have her own room and stairs to climb. I’m so excited to think about a nursery scheme again ..... I’m thinking boho magical with lots of  fairy doors. #cherishandrelish #babywalking #stopgrowingsofast

Sometimes it’s just being remembered or seen that makes you feel on top of the world, love and adored. I was given a beautiful necklace from Birdy, a Snotty kiss from Mouse and Big D has booked dinner somewhere for us. I’ve actually told Big D that he can cancel the table and we can put the money to better use (on our child free week away perhaps), he looked so confused. I’ve been moaning that he never takes me out, never books a table and is always a last minute Charlie...and now that he has ticked all those boxes - I have told him to undo it. Poor men, no wonder they haven’t got a clue. Just knowing he was thinking of me, knowing he had heard me was the best romantic gift ever for me. I’m not a girl who needs diamonds and pearls, I’m happy with a post-it note and a pizza as long as it’s #weightwatchers friendly. Either way getting to have a little be heart breakfast with these two is Valentines enough for this Mummy .......#valentinesday #lovetobeloved #lovemydaughters #lovemyhusband

Splish Splash I was taking a bath ...... in my laundry basket! I’ve been meditating on the pain in my shoulder and still can’t get to the route of the problem so maybe it’s from carrying this tinker around. I am not ready to accept that my 9 month old baby is no longer a new born, she’s just a very big strong newborn who is eating and trying to walk. It seems to go faster for each child you have, which seems to be the cruelest trick of life! I can’t get my head round this being my last, our last baby..... I’m not ready to start ticking off the lasts, last day before sitting up, last day of being carried all day, last sleepless night .....#motherofgirls #raisinggirls #bathtimefun
