👋Are you ready to take a Sneaky Peaky into my Story?🙊🙊🤳 . ✒...and the memories took me away... in the book published by @1000tales with my humble contribution of a story written in two languages through the eyes of a mother who lost and gained, despaired and loved! A truly amazing cause for buying their books as it goes towards non profitable projects that makes our little voices shout out louder in this huuuge lonely world 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕
👉How did you start your Blog?👈 . This Writing Passion happened to a mama on the mission, a little girl who always wanted to write her own story. She craved her 'me time' in the corner of the small cottage, sitting on the vintage chair with lots of squeaking noises, to let her know there it's a history behind everything. And her huge mug of sweetness may take her into the writing oblivion, creating new stories and memories. And she became a mother. Her story was published by @1000tales and she had to put on her favourite earrings by @angamiabi to celebrate this great news with my beautiful friends on Instagram! 💕💕💕💕💕 . Thank you for your cheering me on and loving me back You Gorgeous Human! ☄☄☄
🐪Have you got your Wednesday Win?🐪 . I just wanted to share my first ever story 🖋written for this beautiful non profit organization surrounded by all stories written by mothers.🤰💕💕💕💕 @1000tales have created a beautiful space where people can share these stories through beautiful books, magazines.📚📚 . To get more ☄magic in the mix☄ I've added a gentle 🦋butterfly card by @dinicrafts and an opulent lavender 💜heart from @lunaluxurylinen
🤖Caring is outta fashion. So is manners. Or is it only me pushing through the rudeness every day? Help, I still care! 😣😬💕🤖 . There were times I got pushed out of the way carrying my little one in the wrap and - just about to turn toddler - in the pram. The old lady nearly nocked me down on the floor, head high and nothing mattered as long as she got to carry on at her speed of importance.🐮🐮 . I love the young girls and boys giddy and happy cheering on life, but they can't decide where to keep their meeting so block the whole path it is😂😂😂 no 'excuse me' gets through them and no mountain moves. . I smile to a fellow mama hoping to get some sympathy trying to deeply apologise as I'm squeezing past her because another group of ladies decided to block the route... and I get the cold shoulder 😂😂 . Just as I was ready to give up on the love this Friday, I see two pensioners in Aldis smiling and chatting to each other, telling me how much they love their grandkids and cooing over my little one. As happy as I go ahead to the tills, filled with love and smiling to the shop assistant. Still thinking nothing can turn into everything... she makes it clear it's not her happy day and turns roboticly rude. I start giggling and I don't care anymore. Excuse me! Nice try, I'm telling her in my head, but please you can't change my mind, ha! Thank you for trying🐒🐒🐒 . I came back to find my hubby at the car and he's asking me what made me laugh so much. I turn around and still giggling reply 'They tried. God knows they tried. But they can't beat this girl. She's just too 🍩cookie🍩'😂😂😂

As I was watching my little boy walking towards the playground I wanted to shout over 'Don't worry baby, if they don't want to play with you, they just don't know how beautiful you really are😐😐' . I don't think about bruises or bumps anymore...I don't worry about safety or germs like I used to. What gets to me is looking over and seeing this beautiful little boy who can't wait to love another little being. And those big eyes staring back at me...as if they were asking me...'but why won't they play with me mommy?' . We're at the hospital and all the kids are trying to shout louder than the other, so he quickly jumps up and heads over with the biggest smile on his face, so eager to be part of it... the smell of rejection and the stern looks of other parents quickly make me all wary as I look up again to see him all alone, no one around. . And every time someone came closer he just started jumping for joy, only to see their parents quickly calling them back. I am sure no one knows. But my heart sinks and all I want is to jump over to hug that look out of him. To tell him it's okay to play on his own. And that I can't replace the play but I will be there any time he feels lost and misunderstood. Because my little gentle soul just patted a girl on the head and looked at her lovingly, only to find out she's left soon after. Am I teaching him wrong? Have we gone somewhere where there's no love or 'LESS A D U L T Y' stuff and kids only feel safe enough to play with those that parents befriend? . I can't even imagine how it would feel if one of my kids got bullied😐🙊 I just don't think I would know how to deal with it! All I have is my whole heart and it belongs to all those kids and mamas who feel rejected. I love you just the way you are. I want to let you know that beauty lies in the time you spent cheering each other on and loving others. And every time you take that second out to play with my boy or tell me something nice when I have a winge over Insta, I thank you from the bottom of my heart you beautiful soul😍😍💕💕💕💕
🎲I want EVERYTHING you got! So hand it over! 🎲 . Your guilty feelings. Your lonely thoughts. Your bad emotions. Your times of sorrow and your depression. Your worst days and your feeling lower than everyone around you. Your biggest lessons. . How would you feel if that was gone? Like cloudy scene from a romantic movie? Just for few minutes every day? Don't you just find now that the person hiding behind those pressures is starting to shine? Do you still feel she needs to take on a different accent or pink high heels or bar of chocolate to get through sunshine and perfect day? . I'll let you have it. I've got your back. Let her be free and fluttery. Let her get giddy and laugh out loud. Don't you just love that naughty spirit and those glimmering eyes? And don't you love her and that brave woman she's meant to be? . So how do you get to love her? Take a sweet cup of coffee or tea with her. Treat her to it every day. So then you get to know your true self. Past all that stressy stuff and all that's getting you down. 😄☝️🍮And hurry up. It's getting cold! 🍮😚

Sometimes I'd rather be D E A F. Yes, that's right. Deaf. Because then there wouldn't be ANY twang to it. Just plain English.🤘 . I was sitting in the waiting room, sipping down my awful sugary drink to get the second diabetes test done and the doctor calls me back in. 'You're different.' he says. 'How do you mean? 🤔I asked. 'Your accent, I can't tell where you're from...' then he turned around and took my blood sample. Like any other time, I spent 10 good minutes explaining my roots and Geordie accent in the mix. He turned around and said: 'You're all the same, English. I can't tell the difference.' I sat there in a state of utter confusion. I couldn't work it out whether I should feel more offended for being called Foreign with a twang or the fact he thought Geordie and English was the same thing. Or the fact he thought my accent was foreign because it was Geordie 🤣🤣 . Any party I was ever invitied to ended up with a guessing game🙈🤣🤣 ''Guess where she's from!' 'Oooh no way!' 🙊🙊Then comes the Smart Butt. . They always call in an expert. Someone that can do a language lie detector😁😒 Everyone turns to the person after my 'saying few words so they can hear this' and the whole room pauses. Complete silence. They turn around and ➖shock horror➖ say.....'I could swear there was a foreign twang to it.' and I just give up. 😂😂 . Of course I have few friends who take the Mickey mouse and laugh out loud in the background. They just hang around there to see my face drop when the twang hits the conversation. Yes, thank you Darren. 😂😂 True English friend. . So I started playing along. I just tell them what they want to hear. It was too difficult to try and explain every little detail until they eventually call a twang on me. So yes I am from all over the world, moving countries at times. My husband knows the drill and he asks me 'So they're the ones who think you're Irish?' 😂😂 I am therefore unique and if you heard my live video, the accent might be Geordie😉🤞🤞💕💕 . 🙊Have you got the Twang?😁😁👊
The heights of the tower were unseen, the lights in the sky were blitzing and mean. Her sailor was jumping from step to step, to get to his princess to find out the truth. Was her crochet skills as strong as the wall stretching all the way to her crafty door? . Her lights in the room were flickering still as the sailor reached for her golden shears. She dropped her phone and her crafts and invited him to her works of arts. They took few selfies and flatlays, the storm was getting louder again. . They lowered themselves from that tower of dreams and entered the boat with their strong crocheted knits that had the invisible magic seams. ✂️✂️✂️✂️✂️✂️✂️✂️✂️✂️✂️✂️ No more islands and rocky starts, now it was time to show off her arts. This was her chance to get Crafty For Real so she used her Magic and Group Post Reveal. They loved all her skills and her beautiful heart, her Story was written and she reached for the stars. 🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠 . 📸Beautiful creations by @jewels_of_joy_ 📸
Her name was 👑Julia👑, a Crafty Soul✂️, who stole the 💎Jewel of His Heart and kept it hidden buried in the depths of the Sea. 🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊🌊 . 'Behold! said sailor, 'Is that the most beautiful woven thing I see that stretches out of the foreign tower and into the Sea? Or is it just my imagination corrupting my mind and the vision of thee?' The captain ordered to sail to the island and the sailor jumped out to see whether the princess Julia needed a prince to craft her out of the tower destiny. . What follows next you'll find out my dearest friend if you read carefully...✍ the answer will be written in the next part of this trilogy🙊💕💕💕⛵⛵⛵ . 📸Beautifully crafted earrings by @jewels_of_joy_ 📸 *(written by T.Fitisemanu)*
👑💢A Beautiful Princess💢👑was locked in the highest tower on a little isolated Mama Island. And she started Crafting. Her hair became longer every day and the heart grew stronger every time she made another beautiful creation.👩‍🎨✂️ . Would she stay alone with her babe for the rest of her days? Or would her crafty hands crochet long enough creation to get the masterpiece seen from far away so the sailors would come and see 'what the craft' was going on?! ..... read what happened next in our next photo with beautiful designs by @jewels_of_joy_ sent all the way from Russia with LOVE 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕
We're men... We're men in tights (tight tights)! I'd love to think we're the Robin Hood of Mamakind 👋🙊😄 defending the peoples rights. . I was watching the movie this morning with my two poorly babes and it just dawned on me.🙈 The nowadays world and fashion is calling out for more manhood that I will ever carry around😂😂 but the men's section is sort of blooming lately... so I think walking into a mall or browsing through shops is like watching Men in Tights😮🙊🙊😂😂Or is it just me? 🤔👋 . Continuing with the Robin Hood theme I thought I'd just add 'When your in a fix just call for the men in tights.' We are not just another group and definitely love to grow with all the mamas in tights. And what could I possibly say to convince you to be part of something this loving and caring? 😁😁🤣👇 We're butch. #bossmode 👊🙊😄 . 🎥A R E Y O U I N ?🎥
Can you smell the C O F F E E ? 🙊🙊☕ No? Then this is a reminder that you probably left it in the microwave! . So this is to all the women who just like myself need something strong in their life to bring them back to earth right after their limits have been pushed to extreme but their little ones 🤣🤣🙈 . This is also for those whom I've never met but have continuously had my back and we can't just meet yet because we're so far away or life intervened every time... . And to make the lives of those women who support us nicer let's tag them in with a cup of coffee to let them know they're our ☕COFFEE BUDDY☕and we're thinking of them every time we take a sip 👋😂😂☕☕☕☕
I looked at the back of the car and I suddenly realised🙊🙊 'They're not babies anymore...'😯 . We just swapped her capsule for a bigger seat and with both kids facing forward it kind of made me pause. It made my heart ache and fill up with joy at the same time💔 I just couldn't stop thinking about the moments like these. Encapsulated in appreciation of what has become and sorrow for what has gone. . I turned away and said to my husband welling up with tears 'Can you remember when they were still tiny teeny babies?' He added '...and screaming without stopping? Do you think they'll let us have our Friday nights back now?' I looked at him all confused...but then he continued 'I don't regret anything, even the worst nights...but I miss spending time with my wife...' . You see, we didn't have a single night out together since the babies came and we never really wanted to from the start. Just because they grow so fast🙂🙂 But then through colicky nights and temper tantrums a truly great desire for just a few peaceful moments grew🙊🙊💕💕💕 We got into our car on Friday night, the kids in the back and we drove until they fell asleep. Pulled up at the take away coffee place and parked up next to the beach we stared at the stars and whispered stories to each other until one of the babies woke up...(sometimes 10 minutes later😆😆🙈) We will never be able to share those special firsts anymore, but maybe now they will let us have the whole coffee all in one go😉😉 Do you feel you shouldn't be wishing for something? That might just end up being what you really need☝️🙂💕💕 . For my Jesus Fam: Ephesians 5:25-27 NIV Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.
'Where has today gone?' I said to my husband earlier... to which he responded 'it's gone to yesterday's memories' 😀👍💕💕 . This really made me think. I felt all sad and guilty for not being able to do more and a better job... more play time with kids and sexy time with hubby and selfish time for me🙈🤣🤣 . But then I realised I should be EXCITED! Because right now I'm building the Future, right where I decided to drop the guilt and the bad feelings about just being able to be a M A M A for the day. Just because I had my 4th coffee and my choices didn't get any better. Just because after that every coffee I never managed to get rid of that huge mountain of clothes and cook anything more delicious than a broth with sausages🤣🤣 . So say it with me, I'm dropping the Past and I'm Building the Future! ' It's OK to just be a Mama today. Tomorrow I can be the #bossmama and the day after I can be the #funmama and the very next day the #hotmama 🤣🤣🔥🔥🔥 . 💜🤔Which Mama are today? 🤔💜
