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.

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.

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.

Bible

Becoming a mum is quite possibly one of the biggest life changes we can go through, your time is no longer your own and there are constant demands. If you're a believer in Jesus then I'm sure you'll agree making time for God is important, but how do you prioritise God amongst the necessary demands of motherhood and seemingly endless chores? How do you find time when your energy ...

Are you fed up of feeling tired, constantly lacking in energy and in need of a lift? You're not alone! There's no doubt being a mummy can be exhausting. We need to get creative in maximising our energy levels. Here's my story of how I went from exhausted to energised within a week:

Mistakes can be good!

Have you ever felt like you've made a massive mistake? Have you ended up feeling guilty and wishing you could go back and do things differently? Mistakes can make us feel awful, but they don't have to. Here's why mistakes in parenting can actually be a good thing!

What are you judging?

Isn't it so easy to judge other mums? Doesn't it sometimes seem so natural to look at how they do it, and compare. To make some sort of estimation of their parenting in a moment of observation. But don't we all hate being on the receiving end of this?

Rest Here

About a year ago I started feeling extremely tired, more than that, exhausted. My son was sleeping brilliantly and had been for months, but I felt exhausted. I would sleep well and wake up tired. I would do things in the day and by the time I got home at lunchtime to put Jonas down for his nap, I would struggle to muster up the energy to walk up the stairs, let alone do any of the chores I needed ...

Lucky Mummy, Lucky Son

Do you ever feel like you're not good enough? Like you just aren't quite enough for your baby. Like sometimes you make mistakes? Like some days, you try so hard, but still don't seem to get it all right.
