April Mon Day 6-8

Bit of a catch up. I recently had some twin nephews join the family so i have been very busy :)

Day 6 prompt:
my brother Aaron and my hubby Allan
in 2006 or 2007
I think of my brother Aaron. I think of how he didn't make it to 18. I think of how he didn't get to become a legal adult.  I think things are not as bad as they seem. I think he would be proud of me. I think of him smiling down on me , saying you did good.

Some days I miss Aaron. I think about all the stuff he has missed. And other days I do not think about it.  The pain of living with someone who commits suicide never ends.

Aaron committed suicide a few weeks shy of his 18th birthday in 2007 for the readers who do not know the back story.

Day 7 prompt:

 That would be my four sons. I live for them I breathe for them. They are my everything. Without them i feel like a part of me is missing. I am not used to be childless even when i duck down to the shops kid free , it feels odd to me and i am not used to it.
For 10 years I have spent my days and nights living and breathing the Early intervention journey and the special needs journey. I spend my nights  thinking about reports and specialists etc.  I think about the best ways to advocate for my boys.

My boys make me smile they make me laugh I love them. I would not change them. I am blessed to be their mum . They have taught me so much about being a mum, about who I am as a person, about the world and about how the world sees them.

Day 8 Prompt:

 I seem to have a lot of cook books. I own almost every Jamie Oliver cook book ever made. I don't know why i own so many but i do. I don't want to get rid of them because Tyson ( my 8 yr old) loves to read them and choose recipes to cook or bake  from the cook book , and he finds it easier tan surfing the internet.

I would love to one day get a signed copy of a jamie oliver cook book for Tyson he wants to one day be a chef just like Jamie Oliver.

I also have a lot of fabric because i buy it, and i make grand plans of  making all these awesome things. But the reality is I have hardly any time to sew. I have approx 20 meters of fabric sitting uncut at the moment in a box hahaha , I think I need some form of intervention...


  1. I am so sorry for the loss of your brother. That's so incredibly sad. I have the feeling he would have loved being uncle to your beautiful boys. x

  2. Being a new reader Jess, I had not known about your brother. I am so sorry to hear that you lost him, and so young too.I cannot imagine that pain. Lots of love to you (and your gorgeous family) xx

    1. Thanks alana, he passed away in 2007 after taking his own life just before his 18th birthday.
