Five years today.

Charlie came to live with us five years ago today! He was around nine months old, a friend of my uncle had gotten him for his family but long story short they couldn’t keep him. That first week was terrifying, he cried, I cried, wondered if I’d taken on too much. But as hard as […]

At this point in time we should have been married for about seven months, but as you know a global pandemic happened. We’re hoping the wedding goes ahead this […]
