making space

My name’s Kate. Over six years ago I became a mummy. My life massively changed! I left my career, fell madly in love and started the biggest learning curve of my life.

Happy future

Life can be busy. No doubt about that. I don't know your story but I know mine. Family health issues, busyness around the home, general commitments and a constant battle to try and squeeze in time for so many things that seem important. Our days can be so cram packed that at the end of it all, we can look back and realise we haven't even uttered a single prayer for our kids. It doesn't matter you ...

Catching The Moment

That morning after my beautiful daughter was born was incredible. I wish I could have boxed up those feelings of pure joy and kept them so I could relive that moment again and again. Just the three of us, no demands, no interruptions; a chance to simply delight in our new baby girl. I was reminded then just how important it is to catch each precious moment. To stop and breathe in those treasures ...

What you love

As I write this my son's at Playschool. I'm sat here with a cuppa and cheeky piece of chocolate cake and actually getting time to sit and write, something I love and I'll be honest, I feel energised. Getting time to myself isn't something I have a lot of chance to do and yet I'm starting to realise just how important it is.

Bedtime story

I love bedtime with my son. Not because he goes to sleep and mummy gets a break (although that is always nice!), but because I believe it's a massively important part of the day and one that could so easily be overlooked in the rush to get the lights out. The question is are we using this time to really impact our children or is this just a quick kiss goodnight before we rush ...

An iPhone

Are we really available to our children? Do we make time for them and their passions in our busy schedules? Are we really present when we're with them, or are we also elsewhere?

What I Wish I Knew Then

I'll never forget that first time we brought our son home from hospital when he was just two days old. To be honest we probably left prematurely. I felt sick and in pain the whole journey home and yet I sat in the backseat of our little car just to keep a close eye on my beautiful boy, to check he was still breathing. I'd been around children for years, so felt like motherhood would be easy, but ...

Whats My Purpose

Do you ever feel lacking in purpose in motherhood? Like you're not achieving anything of worth by being at home with your children and you're just filling time? Stay at home mums and working mums alike, we all spend time with our children and yet it can be easy to see this time as menial.

Do you know what I love about you?

I'm sure most parents would agree that expressing how much we love our children is of utmost importance. Letting them know that we value them and love them undoubtedly gives them a huge sense of identity. But the question perhaps isn't so much do they know they are loved, but more do they know why they are loved.
