Why do I want you to know all this?
In the time that I have saved this tagged social media challenge the 3 things have somehow become 4 but I’m not going to change my list. I’m not sure why it came about and what its intention is. Maybe it’s to impress our friends or maybe it’s to inform our Facebook friends who might not know us at all to get to know us better? Who knows.

There seems to be a running theme through mine of relationships and yearning for the peace of nature. I know I certainly crave peace and quiet yet at the same time love seeing my children discover nature. Seeing them take delight in handling garden snails this week was lovely. On the other hand it’s the school holidays and hearing them argue and whine was not so lovely. It’s a fine line as I love them to bits but know that I am feeling unable to deal with the parenting at times is hard. I know that I’m not a “bad mum” as many others feel this way too with or without suffering from anxiety or having Pnd. I even asked my daughter today “am I such a bad mum?” She was quick to say ” no you’re a good mummy because you love us”. For that I am relieved and know that it’s only me who judges myself so harshly.
