Yup, I started NorthHantsMum six years ago on this day, the day after midsummers.
SIX YEARS of my life. SIX WHOLE YEARS!!
I’ve put my heart and soul and a LOT of time into it during those years.
It’s grown WAY beyond what I ever expected when I started writing this blog, six years ago when Miss NHM was only three months old.
It’s given me a purpose and so much more. Something to focus on when times get tough and in the past six years I’ve had some really tough times.
Last year running the site raised my stress levels to dangerous heights but I’m still here, slogging working away on the site and community.
I’ve seen a LOT of changes in the past six years that have affected the NorthHantsMum Community. The children’s centres closing, the lack of funding for breastfeeding drop in’s, and the support for new Mum’s dramatically diminish, being just a few.
I LOVE what I do on NorthHantsMum and when I sit back and really think about it, I’m incredibly proud of it all. It’s not been easy at times, but it’s definitely been worthwhile.
It’s that little bit of positivity that I, and the team of volunteers who now work with me, put out that makes other parents lives that little bit easier.
The NorthHantsMum Community has become a village now. There are so many of you to thank, I’m bound to forget someone important, so instead of making a faux pas I just want to say THANK YOU. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
Thank you to each and every one of you who is involved in NorthHantsMum.
My team (all volunteers) and I couldn’t do what we do without your support.
Thank you. x
