As a regular reader you will know I fight daily with depression and anxiety, I have never hidden from the topic, and have frequently shared my ups and downs with you - my readers. One thing I get asked on a regular basis is how do you cope on a bad day, what makes you get through it or even turn the day around. It actually got me thinking, what do I do to get through. So I thought I would share my top tips to get through a bad day.

A while back we were sent out the YumBox mini, and Emily absolutely love it. It came in really handy to pop in my changing bag for Emily’s snacks, I also loved the fact it was leak proof. The only thing that was bothering me was how small it was, the more I used it the more I wished it was bigger. I was recently given the opportunity to test out the original YumBox, and I couldn’t wait as I knew I would love it just as much as I loved the mini. I decided to go with a purple one, as that is Emily’s favourite colour. It is available in several colours though.

(sorry about the poor quality, it was really hard to get a good picture of the wreath because of the glitter reflection)
Autumn is my favourite time of the year, I feel more relaxed and I love the sound of crunchy leaves. Autumn also brings a whole list of things I want to do with Emily. Last year I put together an Autumn bucket list and found it so productive. We managed to do so many things as a family that I would have forgot to do if I didn't have my bucket list to refer to. So this year, I told myself I would definitely put together another bucket list, and blog or vlog about the things we tick off it.

Emily has a lovely little birthday party the week before her birthday, nothing big or extravegant, just a few of her little friends, some cake and a lot of playing. She had the best time, and it was so lovely to see her have fun with her friends. It really is the small memories in life that we take for granted, I thought I would share a few photographs from her party, So one day she can look back on this.

I'm sure if you’re a regular reader you will know we love nothing more than getting out and exploring new places. One of our favourite places to visit is the forest of Marston vale, it isn’t far from us, and it’s a place we love to explore. It is so peaceful there, and Emily loves to be outdoors. Every time we have visited we have found something new that we didn’t know was there.
