the day you left

Most people won’t have noticed, many probably won’t care. But I care, you cut me like a knife and the wound is still open.

Guest Post: The one about breastfeeding….

As regular readers know I have been proudly feeding BB now for twenty two months, it was such hard work at the beginning and we have no idea how to stop now so instead we are just going with the flow.
