Blog Every Day in November

Blog Every Day in November is a blogging challenge for you to write and publish a blog post every day for the entire month of November. It’s as simple as that. You can find the prompts here.


I’ve spent the last few weeks struggling to get motivated to blog, I’ve created a couple of YouTube videos that you can find here.

Two years ago around this time, I found out that we were going to be parents. I had one of those memory posts pop up on Facebook and it’s dated the 24th October 2013 I comment how I’d been feeling rubbish and not 100% and little did I know that within two days I’d know we were pregnant. How exciting! Today is Children in Need and when I went to volunteer at Radio 2 in 2013, I stood on the platform at Bedford Train Station reading an app that told me he was the size of a blueberry.

Dad hasn’t been very well recently and spent last weekend in the hospital. Again we commented how long it took to discharge him but on the other hand the speed at which he got from the doctor’s to A&E and on to nebulisers and oxygen was pretty quick.

I also had to go for a blood test and thankfully the queue wasn’t too bad! (Oh and the coffee date that followed it helped too!)

We had a social worker visit a couple of weeks ago and I was in a bit of a flap as we’d had a ridiculous short amount of notice so I sent out a prayer request to a group of my friends and while I tidied like a mad lady they send up some prayers. As silly as it might sound it calmed my inners! Sometimes you just need to know that people are on your side helping you. When Dad was taken to hospital on Friday I sent a message out again and asked my friends to get on it. Dad was discharged on Monday.

Last Friday while Mum and Dad were waiting for the next step, Mum’s best friend who was in to visit her Mum, delivered lunch to Mum. I think Mum commented that it was the best lunch ever! What she’d thought could just be a flying visit to the Doctors had turned into a full blown hospital visit that she wasn’t ready for.

On that day the social worker came at short notice, one of the ladies from church replied saying she’d pray but also was there anything she could do to help. She’s the same lady who took a load of washing when our machine broke down about a week after Jaxon was born. I think she enjoyed washing the baby clothes and getting mushy over how cute they are!

We are so blessed and cared for by our friends.
