Good Morning from Drayton Manor Hotel 🥰

Elara was incredible and went straight to bed and slept all night, she’s always been an incredible sleeper but we were unsure how it would go with us all sleeping in one room 😂 

Highly recommend the Drayton Manor Hotel; amazing food and so many cute Thomas the Tank Engine details. We were even given this Thomas book for bedtime 🥰 how cute!

Today we’re off to @sealifebirmingham and tomorrow @draytonmanorpark 🥰

Have you been to Thomas Land? Can you recommend anywhere nice to eat in Birmingham today?

Sliding into the weekend like . . 

This one lights up my life. We’ve officially had Elara’s start date for Nursery and I’m so excited for her! In Wales little ones start half days in Nursery around their 3rd birthday 🥰

Any tips for a new school run mum? 

Elara’s Outfit:
Jumper: @nextofficial 
Jeans: @zarakids 
Boots: @zarakids

Elara absolutely loved this little ride at @longleatofficial yesterday; it was so cute seeing her happy little face. It only lasts around one minute and she told me atleast 10 times how much she loved it! 

Everything I do is for Elara. I want to make her the happiest toddler ever and give her the world! I keep it together most of the time I’m with Elara but sometimes I slip and have a little cry; which lands me an Elara cuddle and a little “it’s okay Mummy”

I have been thinking about writing a review on our day at Longleat but it wasn’t overly positive. I would definitely say don’t visit in the Summer Holidays. But what do you think? Honest review or just leave it?

My little superhero 🥰

Elara has been my little hero these past couple of months without even knowing it. If I’m crying in front of Elara she will come over and give me a little hug and say “it’s okay mummy” which actually makes me cry more 😂 then she looks me dead in the eyes and says “big smile mummy, do a big smile”. Elara makes me smile every single day without fail. She makes me belly laugh and she gives me reason to continue. 

I am trying to change my mindset around Emmie’s life; trying to smile at the thought of her beautiful face and the days we got to spend with her instead of being sad for what we are missing. It doesn’t mean I’m not sad; I am incredibly so and I will miss my beautiful little Emmie every day I am alive.

Life is tough. The little things that would get me down no longer matter. Health and family are EVERYTHING. Nothing else phases me. For me there is no point in life if you don’t have family and your health. Family is not only blood but the friends that are always there for you. I am so lucky to be surrounded by so many that I call family but especially this little bean, her baby sister that we miss dearly and her incredible daddy ❤️

Making memories with Elara 🍓

I want to spend every second of this summer making memories with Elara and Mike; making the summer a happy one for us all. I don’t feel like I can ever truly be happy but I can try. 

Highly recommend @gowerpyo for your strawberry & raspberry picking needs 🍓

I love you Emmie, to the moon and back, forever and always and with everything I have. 

The day you passed away will forever be the worst day of my life. I wish we could have had more time with you. I wish my artery hadn’t ruptured at that moment. I wish so many things that will never come true. 

I hope you felt how loved you are. How longed for you are. How much everyone prayed you could stay with us ❤️ you are so very loved Emmie, even by strangers on the internet! You have touched so many hearts. 

I just wish you were here with us every single day. I miss you baby girl. I love you so much 💔 xxx

29. Today I turn 29 years old and in my head it was going to be the best birthday ever because we’d be a new family of four and I’d have my 2 beautiful girls with me.

I don’t want to be sad today. When you go through something traumatic you really do realise who your true friends are and I’ve been overwhelmed with the amount of support from so many lovely people that I haven’t even met in person. From bringing me magazines and books in hospital, to sending me beautiful keepsakes for Emmie, to looking after Elara and just reaching out with a simple I’m here for you. 

In this photo I have tagged all the people I want to say a huge thank you to for being there for me. Your kind words and support mean more to me than you will ever know ❤️
