How to beat the dark days...

Occasionally I have what I call my dark days, which are the days when I wake and just don't feel myself. Do you get them to? I mean this motherhood malarkey is rather hard some weeks isn't it, and I think the stress just creeps up on me. But I always try to keep soldiering on so here are my top 5 tips that help me get through those dark days. Hope they help you to.




1, Shop

I never need an excuse to shop but when I'm down this really picks up my mood. Even if I just pop out for a bag of crisps, and a can of coca cola. Even online shopping helps, hello Ikea website.

2, Eat

I'm a big foodie person, so I definitely don't need an excuse to eat. But I love to indulge in dark chocolate biscuits and sweets when I'm down, it makes me happy, and takes me back to when I was a kid. Lol literally comfort eating.

3, Laugh

My hubby, Anthony is great at cheering me up this way, he'll usually pop on a comedy or just tell me some jokes which I don't always get but I love him for it. And if he's not around Phoebe can be quite entertaining so I usually dance around like a mad women with her.

4, Love

Make love that is. Again my lovely hubby will help with this lol.. But on a more serious note endorphins are released through your body each time you indulge yourself which gives a feeling of well being. So put the kids to bed and jump in yours...

5, Sunshine

Get out and about and enjoy the sunshine, just being outside getting some fresh air will help clear your mind a great deal. When Phoebe was really tiny I actually used to walk round and round my block to make myself feel better. I'm sure the neighbors thought I was nuts.

So there you have it my top 5 tips to help you beat the dark days.

Let me know in the comments what you do to cheer yourself up, on your dark days.

Labour & Birth Story...Phoebe

My beautiful little girl Phoebe entered the world on 22nd June 2016, and ever since it's been quite a roller coaster of emotions for me. From sheer panic because I had absolutely no clue what I was actually supposed to be doing...lol I'm sure all new mummies probably felt the same, to utter joy when she took her first steps, said her first word, and called me mummy for the first time. Motherhood is by far the best job I've ever had. It comes with highs and lows which I'll continue to share. But let's go back a bit and start with my labour & birth story...

June 22nd 2016

I actually think my labour officially started the night before I had Phoebe, because I couldn't sleep at all and just felt so frigidity and odd. Okay so odd doesn't really explain much but, I just felt like something wasn't as it had been before. Also through out my pregnancy I'd always said, that I had a feeling the baby would come early, and her due date was actually 1st July, …
