Oh, YES!!! This is the weather that kids get colds and cough might be one of the visitors, as well a runny nose. Cough medicine especially syrups, I personally find really nasty and I avoid them if I can. Immediately I start feeling that tickle in my throat to alert me that an unwanted guest aka cough might be on its way, I do any and everything to shove the door on its face. I don’t want that guy in my house.
So here’s a recipe for that cough trying to feel at home in your body. Remember this is not for a full blown and persistent cough. You SHOULD definitely see a doctor for that.
2 thick slices of fresh pineapple, peel removed, but core intact (about two good cups)
1 Tbsp honey
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (omit or reduce for children)
a thumb sized piece of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced or rough chopped
juice of 1 lemon
Give the pineapple a rough chop, including the core, which is not only edible but particularly healthy.
Blend everything up in a blender or food processor until smooth.
Use as is, or push the mixture through a mesh strainer to get a smoother syrup.
Keep in the refrigerator and take as needed.
Nothing to see here, just Rapunzel sitting in Cinderella’s carriage, with her new Jessie (bday present from Mumma and Harrison) and a bullseye to match - her choice to buy with her birthday money ❤️ Lovely morning up in London in the Disney store, they did a little birthday celebration and gave her a badge! One happy birthday princess 💕
As mum you know best! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise! After 4 days of spiking temperatures him not eating, crying and sleeping all the time and doctors telling me no it’s just side affects of his 1 year jabs I refused to believe it. There was something wrong with him this is not my Jed 😫
Finally after seeking other doctors opinions he now has antibiotics for a throat infection as his throat is so swollen no wonder he won’t eat. He is so little I hate seeing him so poorly, now to try and get him better 💙 #mummyishere

Rainy days are for jumping in puddles! Fifi spent 40 minutes jumping and splashing in the puddles this morning. I love watching her just enjoy the simple things in life. We both put our Gumboots on and had so much fun laughing. We were drenched!
In the afternoon we played Duplo, play dough and used the nesting dolls a different way. 😂 We have been working on cutting skills with playdough the last few weeks. It is homemade dough so it is softer than the store brought which makes it easier for her to cut. I roll snakes and the Fifi snips at them or cuts them with rolling cutters.
Fifi loves her nesting doll and nesting egg toys. She is able to put them together in the right size order. The last couple of days she has been balancing them on top of each other. She has so much determination to work our how they will balance best. #singlemum#singlemomlife#singleparent#singlemom#toddlerlife
Easier said then done; believe me, I know. But tonight I forgive all who have wronged me, who have scarred me, who have threatened my light and self worth. If I hold onto the pain they inflicted, it only gives them power and keeps the pain alive, for me, alone. And lastly, but most importantly, I forgive myself. For allowing others to treat me so poorly, for not having clear bounderies, for being consistantly soft, kind and forgiving when it wasn't deserved. But also acknowledging that these are the traits that make me unique and beautiful and that there are also people in this world that won't extort those parts of me 😊🌌 #herhappinessproject#mummyblogger#melbournemummyblogger#singlemum#youngmum#forgiveness#cleanheart#lessonlearnt#strength#strongwomen#inspiringwomen#goodnight
A Frolo’s Story: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm Lorraine, mammy of 3 beautiful children. I was with my husband for 20 years.
We had two children,two miscarriages then a 3rd child after 10 years, a much wanted 3rd child.
At 6 months pregnant my world was ripped apart when I discovered things that no woman or man should ever find out about their partner. I won't go into details because my two eldest are older and old enough to understand so I don't want them to read it should they come across this. Being pregnant and enduring this heartache was the most difficult thing you could possibly imagine. I was terrified anything would happen to the baby and I was also terrified that I wouldn't be strong enough to get through the pregnancy.
I did though,and 3 months after my world fell apart, i gave birth to my beautiful son at home in my own bed with my sister and daughter by my side. I felt like a warrier that day. So many emotions all rolled into one.
I crashed, I crumbled, at one stage I thought I wouldn't survive. He was all I really knew so I thought I wouldn't be strong enough without him. But I was, and I am 😊
I surrounded myself with a small handful of close people,and they helped me through it. Make sure to only surround yourself with good people that will encourage you, carry you through the days that you don't have the strength to carry yourself through.
I am almost three years into this separation journey, in the last 6 months I have finally found myself again and value my self worth, and that is so important to everyone on this journey. Know your worth.
Be kind to yourself. We need to be strong for ourselves first and foremost in order to be strong for our kids.
The photo I am sharing is not my most flattering photo but it's seconds after I gave birth and I felt like the strongest person in the world when at one stage I didn't think I had the strength to get through the end of the pregnancy. ♡ #singleparent#singleparents#singlemum#singledad#mentalhealth#frolo#coparenting
"And it was all yelloooowwww". I was desperate to add some colour to my wardrobe this week! As a melbournian, I too often turn to black. It's "safe and easy" I tell myself. Which are the two most comfortable things for me as a new mum right now.
Satan told me yesterday that I wasn’t good enough. He told me that my life was a disappointment and that I am stuck.
I have failed at my perfect “American Dream” to have a family of four, boy and girl and a faithful husband who leads our home through God’s word....and somehow that husband leaving us had to be my fault. I wasn’t pretty enough, fit enough, smart enough, good enough, I just wasn’t enough.
It took me all day to take those thoughts captive. I cried a lot. I received wise counsel. I got there and finally told the devil to SHUT UP.
I know exactly who I am and whose I am. I am royalty, a fighter, a warrior, a daughter of the King. I am not a failure, I’m not even average, I was destined for greatness no matter what avenue that takes. .
Whether it’s health coaching, worship leading, writing, speaking, etc, I will be used for God’s glory as that is my calling. No matter what the enemy does to try to knock me down, I will always get back up. No matter what evil tries to destroy my life, it will fail because it’s not his to ruin. My life is God’s to champion.
Victory is sometimes found at the bottom of the tissue box, but the God of that victory is still on His Throne, and that little devil is still under our feet.
Are you eating healthy and still feel unwell?
It can be so frustrating when you feel you are eating well to support your health and healing but you don’t feel any better for it.
You may be feeling, “What’s the point of eating healthy if I don’t feel much better?”
There could be a number of reasons why you may not feel better with changing your diet alone. And it’s important to investigate further.
One factor that people don’t always acknowledge is the impact of their external environment.
Are you in a stressful environment at home or at work or both? While a little stress is okay, too much stress or long term chronic stress can make you sick both physically and mentally.
Do you think it’s possible to fully heal in the same environment that you got sick?
I remember when my chronic pain from Endometriosis was really bad, I was working in a stressful job and working long hours and weekends. I got to a point that I knew I needed to leave this job so I could focus on my health and heal. It was SO hard for me to make the change initially because it was a good job and it paid well. But if you don’t have your health, there is no wealth.
And I’m so grateful now that I made the decision to leave that job because it lead me to a path of healing and into a job that I am SO passionate about and love and allows for me to have a balanced life.
Stress can affect the health of the body in so many ways but an important one that many are unaware of is the change it has on our gut microbiota. Studies have shown a stressful stimulus has a direct negative affect on our gut bacteria. So that healthy diet many not be enough to bring you back to health if you have a current stressful stimulus. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So if you need support in getting clear on what additional changes you need to make to shift your health, I am here to help! Come visit me in clinic and we can work it out. SHIFT HAPPENS! ✨
It's this gorgeous boys 8th birthday today. I just want to give him the biggest cuddle and wish him a happy birthday. But I can't.
For me this is when co-parenting is at its hardest. See, I haven't seen my son yet today and I won't till 4:15. I haven't seen him since Saturday afternoon.
This is when it get hard. So many people say how 'lucky' I am to get a break, but they don't see the pain of not waking up with your children on their birthday or on Christmas morning. #birthdayboy#singlemum#harddays#notsolucky

Hands up who loves change ✋
It's more likely that our human nature and instinct is going to give more of a negative reaction to change👎😢🙈 .
My favourite prayer has always been, even as a child, what I call The Serenity Prayer ~
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference"
Whether you believe in God or not is neither here nor there for me, but the prayer is a great guide to how we should try and handle the changes in our lives.
There are huge changes ahead in mine and my children's lives, I believe for the positive, but it's not always easy to see it that way and I know that all three of us will have waves of doubt and fear. My job, as a parent, is to help them deal with it in a calm, grateful and loving way and the same advice goes to myself! .
Whatever changes your facing today, remember you can only control your reaction to it! Drop the fear, go with love 💖
Have a great Monday!
I can’t emphasise enough the importance of solo adventures. Everything from eating lunch by yourself to strolling on the beach alone all help to shape your sense of independence and self. If you’re never by yourself, how will you know yourself. Company should be an option, not a necessity ☝🏼
LIFE SO FAR...
Having just passed six weeks, I thought I would update you all on how we have been tracking.
I feel like we have started to get into a good routine together (which I know can change any second). Oliver is currently only waking up once a night, starting with a 5 hour sleep, up for an hour and then a 2.5 hour sleep. He cat naps during the day and does get a bit ratty in the evening. I don’t get chances to sleep when he sleeps because of this.
We read books, sing, have play time and I work my butt off to get smiles. He certainly can make me work for them.
The days are often busy with appointments, this week we have doctor appts, physio to check I can return to exercise, Mother’s group, injections, coffee catch ups and his hip ultrasound. I’m getting better in being organised and leaving the house.
I see changes in how alert he is becoming and am so excited about his changes every day. We are both still learning about each other but I love seeing his personality grow x
I know I’m lucky with the level of support I have from my family but I do think I’m doing a good job being a solo mum so far. I’m really proud of how quickly I have adapted and getting things done. I’ve found a strength I didn’t know existed and he is worth every tough moment 💙
