So I hear you ask yourself who is this new blogger? Well my name is Helen and I am mummy to a very pretty little lady who I will call E. She is almost 11 months old and I can't possibly tell you where that time has gone! This time last year I was enjoying the first week of maternity leave. Once again wondering how time had disappeared so quickly, it seemed like only yesterday that I had looked at that positive pregnancy test with disbelief and a tinge of despair. You see even then I knew this was a journey or a responsibility I would take alone, but that is a topic for another post! So back to who I am! As you may have noticed I sometimes waffle or wander off topic! I am 31 and have been working as a learning support assistant in a primary school for almost 10 years, a job I love and find very rewarding. I have a loving supportive family who I am close to and a wonderful group of friends. Without both of which I would struggle to keep my head above water.
Oh and we live in such a beautiful corner of the world, sandwiched between expanses of golden beaches, and lush green mountains, otherwise known as West Wales. 
Well I think that is enough for now or I may send you into the land of nod! In my next post I will reveal a bit about my struggle with postnatal depression. 
In the meantime please feel free to leave a comment! Xxx
