The trials and tribulations of motherhood told through the eyes of a step mum to one, and a biological mother to another. I'm one of 70,000 step mums in the UK & I started my blog to find others in my situation. My hope is to build a community to muddle through together and hopefully have a few laughs along the way! I post about parenthood in general, pregnancy, babies, kids, homework, surviving the holidays- the usual mum stuff!

To All The Mums Trying To Do The Cleaning....
As Rose Milligan wrote.....
Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be better To paint a picture, or write a letter, Bake a cake, or plant a seed; Ponder the difference between want and need?
Dust if you must, but there's not much time, With rivers to swim, and mountains to climb; Music to hear, and books to read; Friends to cherish, and life to lead.
Dust if you must, but the world's out there With the sun in your eyes, and the wind in your hair; A flutter of snow, a shower of rain, This day will not come around again.
Dust if you must, but bear in mind, Old age will come and it's not kind. And when you go (and go you must) You, yourself, will make more dust.
