Happy 3rd Blog Birthday!

blogging/ personal

So three years ago today I published my first entry onto This Mummy Loves!

When I started I knew that the blogosphere was a wonderful thing as I’d been blogging on and off since 2001 but I wasn’t really prepared for the amazing things that parent blogging were to bring me!

Bugs was almost two months old when I started so I had a cute little baby to photograph and talk about nowadays I find it much harder to write and who wants to look at photos of my kids?

I think I just need to find a new focus, next year I won’t be doing a year in pictures on my blog as I have done it here for the past 2 years and I think it’s a lazy excuse for a blog post (for me anyway) – it will make me sit and think more and come up with other exciting ideas!

So watch this space… I did consider deleting This Mummy Loves for its third birthday but no; I’m digging in my heels and going forward to bigger and better things…

There will be no more babies… I’m having a really hard time accepting this and I know I’m incredibly lucky to have three amazing children but my heart desperately wants another baby and this year has been really hard trying to come terms with that, I can’t bear the thought of never having another baby, it makes me feel sick and scared for how I’ll cope in the future! All I ever wanted in my life was to have lots of kids and now I’m lost… completely lost without purpose and I’m really not sure what to do!

Anyway that’s not what this post is about!

Happy Blog Birthday This Mummy Loves… Here’s to the next three years!

Now who’s for cake?


A HUGE thank you to everyone who has been part of my blogging life over the last three years, you have all been amazing!!

    I wish I could give you that baby. You deserve it. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t something wonderful for you round the corner. I am so glad you didn’t delete the blog. I am excited for your future. Ps I love seeing pics of your kids xxx

    Happy Birthday!!!! Awh bless you, I have that feeling of empty nest, now Ava has started school. Feel far to old though, but the new puppy has helped 😉

      Thanks lovely. I think I’ll pass on a puppy at the moment… Maybe a rabbit 😉
