Once upon a time…

Dear Diary

I’ve been thinking about writing to you for a long time but haven’t had the courage.

There is so much going on, so many fires to fight, all at the same time, and it is hard to know where to begin.

Let me introduce myself…

I am a Mumma in my 40s with two wonderful children (Child 1 & Child 2) and a Very Patient Husband who, if having patience was an Olympic sport, would be a gold medalist.

As I lie in bed writing this my Very Patient Husband is with Child 1 and Child 2 at the hospital waiting to get Child 2’s hand x-rayed. I could not go because I could not get down the stairs.

Did I forget to mention my disability?

I cannot even begin to describe how painful it is to not be there for my child. I promised them I would always be there for them, that they need only let me know, but I too often fail this promise.

It is late and I am very tired so I will end here. More next time….

Lots of love from Me xxx
