A little bit about me

Hi Everyone,

I’m Lesley, I have 3 great children and a husband.

Motherhood is an amazing journey I decided to start 11 years ago. I was very young when I started this journey but could never see my life any other way. I have learnt many things along the way, mostly from making mistakes first though.

Being a mum is also the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. At times I’ve been pushed to my limits and felt like hiding in a corner to crying.

For a long time now, I have not been able to be the mum I want to be.

I have a large chronic leg ulcer. It has stolen quite a lot of our familys freedom as I am no long able to do most of the things I used to do.

My day to day life starts an hour before everyone else so I can topup a cocktail of medication to stop the pain before I wake the children up and start their day.

My body has learnt to survive on little sleep and my brain generally works in survival mode. However I can not just give up and spend my life on the sofa. 

My number one priority is to be the best mum I can be right now and not dwell on how I used to be.

This blog is going to be a mix of my mum life and the I’m on with the leg ulcer.
