*collaborative content

When I think of all that’s wonderful about the Summer here in the U.K., I visualise picnics and barbecues, cold drinks in pub gardens with friends and twilight evenings in the garden.

Fathers Day 2020 with @Trendhim

*collaborative post

As I post this, it’s just seven days until Father’s Day here in the UK. It’s a calendar entry which always creep up on me, and often ends up with a last minute day off Friday dash to the garden centre or Supermarket to pick up some cards and gifts for the Dads, Grandads and stepdads in our life.

Postpartum hair loss in new Mothers

*contributed collaborative post

After pregnancy, a new Mum may experience some form of hair loss. This hair loss may be extreme (in clumps) or may just be slightly thinning in some areas. Postpartum hair loss is a side effect that some new mothers face after giving birth to their new baby. Mothers can lose their hair for up to a year post delivery. With everything a new Mum is trying to adjust to, this is not something you want to have to worry about.

Attention Attention: Why I’m digging Rap in support of @EllenorCharity X @GTownTalents

You could ask what business a Mum Blogger has banging on about Rap music, and you would legit be spot on. I can’t pretend to be too down with the kids about this genre, in fact my limited knowledge stops at Tu-Pac and Notorious B.I.G.

Staying #PainFree in the pandemic with remote Osteopathy Physiotherapy and counselling #RevitalizeClinic @ElliottJohnReid

In the past twelve months I have prioritised my physical and mental health in a way that I should have been doing for a very long time. Reducing the intake of meat and dairy, quitting booze, and increasing my exercise routine so that running has become a regular feature, not just an occasional fad. Those changes definitely helped me get on the road to better mental health too, alongside the therapy I accessed through Mind in 2019.

School girl crush

The inspiration for this post came in the shape of the week it took me to get over Harry Styles performance at The Brit awards 2020. You see, despite knocking on 40, every now and then I have a tendency to get all unnecessary about a public figure that makes me feel like a seventeen year old who plasters their walls with posters of the latest dream boat. My teenage walls were floor to ceiling with Dec off of Ant and Dec, who back then could be found sporting some floppy curtains and baggy trousers.

#AMothersIf @amothersif

Mum life.

It bonds us, divides us, all too often defines us and sometimes tries to break us.
