Hello and welcome to my blog of a mum missing. Firstly let me say a huge thank you for taking the time to be here with me. I don’t know what has lead you to my blog but you will find love, honesty and above all understanding of what you’re going through. You’re not alone here.
Whether it’s grief, motherhood or mental health this blog is here to provide a space where experiences can be shared and not just mine. I love to hear from my readers so please say hello to me on Facebook and Instagram or if you feel comfortable, I’d love to hear about your experiences too.
On the 17th August 2018 my beautiful mum died suddenly when I was 24 weeks pregnant with my first child. I decided to write about my experience of losing a mum and becoming a mum for two reasons:
- To connect with others who may have, may be or may in the future find themselves where I am.
- To show those people they are not alone.
I searched the internet for accounts that I could to relate to of others who had lost their mums like I did and had had a similar pregnancy journey as I had, however I struggled to find anything I could relate to. This made me feel even lonelier.
So I thought be that someone, be that someone who shares their stories in the hope that someone who needs them sees them and knows they are not alone.
Who am I?
I am a 30 something mum of one living in Lancashire, England. I live with my husband, daughter and dog and we love nothing more than country walks and country pubs. When I am able to find a slice of time just for me I read- and drink gin.
I’ve always loved writing, my mum used to say that I’ve had a pen in my hand since I was 2 years old, so it seems inevitable that I would find myself here at some point. Her death got me thinking about life and that you’ve got to do what you love for those you love. So I started this blog. I’ve always journaled as a way of helping me manage my thoughts and feelings and after my mum, I found writing to be the therapy I needed.
I write for me, I write for you and I write for those we love and those we have lost.
