I am Every Day people…..

Morning people, I have some treats coming up for you my friends. I had decided to stop the guest blogs for a while, just because I was finding it hard due to time constraints, but the ones that have been sent to me over the last month…WOW. So we are back with the guest blogs….

Dear Blondy…..

Dear Blondy, I have been thinking about this letter for a long time. The things I would say if I could talk to you back then. A lot of it was angry. I am not sure who I was angry at, but I thought it was you. Why didn’t you run? Why didn’t you fight?…

Welcome to the world of George the Poet…Part 1.

If you know me, I mean like personally know me, then you will know how I feel about George the Poet. I have been listening to Georges work (Can I call him George? I’m just gonna go with it) for a long time now …. I remember the first time I heard George the Poet…

#shemakesme silent prayer 2019

#SheMakesMe Proud #shemakeme realise that it is possible to achieve what you want no matter what is thrown your way. That resilience is a difficult, but a vital thing to master.

Have you heard George’s podcast?

As I work in a school, this week has been hard as its been the first week back. Its been the hardest return I have ever known in terms of my safeguarding role, pile on top of that my studies and being a single mum, come Friday I am sooooo tired. I don’t want to…
