    When The Going Gets Tough, Turn To Your Family

    Family isn’t defined by who you’re related to by blood, it’s who is there for you when you need it the most. I’m not frightened of admitting that over the last six years of my life that I have needed a lot of help and support to keep me going. Sometimes it’s emotionally, sometimes it’s encouragement, and it has even been financially too. Life is in a nutshell, difficult. Things happen all of the time to many different people that you simply cannot predict.

    Pitter-patter.

    I was sat in a dress shop watching my beautiful cousin try on her wedding dress when it first happened. That magical moment when you first feel your baby kick, not just a flutter but a full on boot you in the side. Everyone rushes around to feel your stomach, but the baby doesn’t kick again, that first big one was just for you and you absolutely love it. You smile smugly and feel warm. You go home and tell the hubby, wait until baby is active again and sit there for hours holding your stomach together, It finally happens, baby lets Daddy feel the magic too. You sit in…

    Stuck for some idea’s on what to do for your Father, or partner for Father’s day? Look no further, I have selected some of my favourite based on what I think Mr Pie would be thrilled to be given.
