Five Minutes On A Quite Big Thing

Hello everyone. 

I have a confession to make. 
I’ve not been particularly honest with you - I’ve not lied but I’ve been a bit deceitful. 

This year I became a mother. 

New Mummy

I’m not a fan of keeping any element of my life a ‘secret’ as such but I’m sure you will all understand that there are a plethora of reasons why I would choose to keep this to myself. It just seemed polite further down the line to give a very non-fanfare style nod to the fact that I’m aware I’ve been quiet this year (not going to lie - Lockdown has been useful for this if absolutely nothing else whatsoever), especially as so many of you have known me for so very long. 

I haven’t joined a ‘club’, I haven’t had any epiphanies or the such. 
We’ve just added another member to our grotty little team. 
And they’re fabulous. 

Families happen in different ways; Friends are family, cousins can be more like siblings, siblings can be more like parents and the partners/lovers/companions we meet along the way are sometimes all we need to feel at home (this was certainly the case for me). 

It’s highly unlikely that you’ll hear much more about this particular part of my life but never say never because why would you say never when there’s absolutely no need to say never. 

To those of you to who this is old, old news - Please input your availability on all upcoming babysitting rotas as requested. 

Without sounding too “U OK Hun?”, “I’ll DM U” This post really is to illicit understanding rather than attention so, with all of the love in the world, I won’t be responding to any questions.
