I have had an absolutely crap year, that’s not an understatement, take the last 3 months, food poisoning twice, I ripped my ham string and gashed a hole in my leg big enough for my fist!! so pretty tough. But the one thing I have learnt is my kids give me a reason to get up every day. I may not be happy about the time but without my kids I could have easily jumped into a dark cave and stayed there in the foetal position. Because of my kids I made myself get up and achieve even the smallest tasks every day. Pretty soon I realised I was stronger than I thought and could achieve more, and more. Without my kids I would not be the person I am today, a strong but fallible person with bundles of joy that give something back every day to their sometimes tired and frumpy old mum!!
