Wow, I can’t believe it’s been four long years since I started my blog with this post when I was going through my infertility journey. I know some of my readers have been with me for the whole of my blog journey, and others have joined me along the way. Whenever you have joined me, I hope you have decided to stick with me because you love what I write.

I love writing for other people, but as I started this blog, mainly for me. Now it is a place for me to write memories to share with the boys when they are older, and for me to look back on so I can see how far I have come. It has definitely been a blog of ups & downs and I have shared so much with you. Through my struggles, if I have even helped one person decide to get help for themselves, or talk to somebody about their struggles, then it has been worth it. (I’m getting all emotional now).

To say thank you to my readers and for your loyalty, I have a few giveaways planned for the week. First up is one donated by me – yes, because I love my readers that much! A £10 amazon voucher, to spend on whatever you wish! Me, it would be books (would this be a cheeky time to point out my other blog for book reviews?…)

So, all you need to do is fill in the Rafflecopter below, and off you go! Good luck!
