Compassion and passion, two traits that I value most and that I try to exhibit every day. With recent tragic happenings in the news, one thing that stands out about the response of the majority, is the presence of compassion. Compassion for neighbours, for strangers and for fellow human beings. Events may not effect us… Continue reading COMpassion
Friday 26th May 2017 The day started in the usual way, Mummy came in to your room at 7:15am to be greeted by you bouncing up and down in your cot, you then proceeded to throw your dummy across the room - the definitive signal that you are ready to get out of bed and… Continue reading Dear Charlie | Toddler Adventures 1.0
Where has the time gone, it seems like only yesterday we arrived home with our little bundle of joy, faced with the task of figuring out how he worked. In just 30 days my "baby" will be TWO!

A few weeks ago I took the plunge and joined the world of Facebook! Notice the title is "re-joining Facebook" - I have been on there before. Many many years ago when it first launched.

It's a little while since I have written about Charlie, his routine or development. I find that the older he gets, the less reassurance I need that I am doing "a good job".
