Hello and welcome to my new blog. I have tried blogging before and have not managed to keep one going. The difference this time is that this time I feel like I NEED to do this. I have been feeling like I need to be creative and I need to write down my feelings a bit more than I have been doing. I have had a lot going on over the past few years and I think I need to start processing it all. So I have figured that a blog might help me along a little bit.
Firstly a bit about me. My name is Emma, never Em or Emmy or anything else, just Emma please! I am the wife to my best friend and soul buddy Joe. I am the Mummy to Dylan and Eilys with another currently cooking (22 weeks and counting). Last year my beautiful Eilys died from Spinal Muscular Atrophy at 1 year and 2 weeks old. Dylan is 4 years old and is my little ray of Sunshine. I am a semi-successful slimmer with slimming world. I love baking and creating in the kitchen. I like to mess about with crafty bits and pieces sometimes making lovely things but mainly making a mess and wasting money in Hobbycraft.
I am aiming to use this blog as a life tracker, waffling about my feelings and things I get up and also a few recipes chucked in for good measure. I really hope I stick with the blogging thing this time as I think it’ll help my state of mind as I navigate through being pregnant and motherhood after the loss of a child.
Take care and big love
