Mum runner.

I ran my first 10k race today and I completed it in a time I’m very proud of. (1 hour and nine minutes) It was the first time I’d ever attempted this distance too.
The Admiral Swansea Bay 10k is a beautiful run that takes you all the way up to the Mumbles and back, and I made it. The kids and Myles were there to wave me in at the end.

Egg collecting.

One of our chicks has laid her first egg today. Very exciting!

Lazy bones.

She drags me to the park, poos in the grass, I throw her ball and that’s Bonnie done in for the afternoon.
What a life…

Nine o’clock in the morning.

The short walk to freedom…

The eyes…

Evie has been making pom-pom creatures tonight. She’s made quite a lot of them and has left them to dry on the table.
I’ve been twitching all night as I just can’t shake the feeling I’m being watched…

Intruder alert!

A great, big, fluffy intruder slunk his way onto our roof tonight. He was really friendly and very, very fluffy (much to Evie’s delight).
So I decided to open the window to pat him and forgot I had a cat too…
Big, fluffy intruder cat is now cowering in our next door neighbours garden and Arnie is back to snoozing on Evie’s bed.

A cup of tea.

I learnt of the suicide of a beautiful mum I knew, (as an online friend) today. She left three young children behind in the world.
Life was too much.
It’s hit me hard as I’ve felt those dark thoughts too, I know a lot of mums do.
I’ve been drinking a lot of tea today and wallowing in past memories.
How do you pull yourself back from such a dark tunnel?
Small, heavy steps at first, find something to hold on to, anything.
I started this blog to pull myself out of depression, something to do as they say, something to focus on.
It feels like a bloody big mountain to climb when you’re at the bottom.

Sleep tight beautiful sister. Rest in peace.
