Death - Depression - & a PIF

Hello loveies, sorry about the horrid post title but well alot has been going on in my little northern terrace house this past month. We have had two very unexpected and suddern deaths in our family and it took its toll on all of us, so it was a very sorry time and we are all just about getting back to the norm now. Depression? well that will be me, i will tell you all a little story about our life, .. my son is now 10 and he is very precious to me, well us all i mean, but we could not conceive naturally and so my son was born by using a donor, for years we have wanted to expand our family but something has always come in the way, and so the years pass but still the burning need to have more children is in my mind, i forget about it for a while because i have to and then it comes back again...badly... so here we are again, and my worry is my son is now 10, im 33, and my periods are only here for a day ot two, which may be due to stress or something else. We do not qualify within the NHS for any treatment help so it comes down to the fact of us paying, and its alot of money to find, time and time again if it doesnt work- we just dont have the funds. Dont get me wrong i have my son, and its the world, but for him to have a brother or sister would be amazing and complete our family...hope i haven't bored you all? but hey ho, thats my little depression thingie at the moment.. And on to happier things a PIF Here are the rules: - i make a handmade gift for the first 3 people to comment - i have 365 days in which to send you the gift - the gift will be a total surprise - you keep this going by posting pay it forward on your blog Now then i have been working on some vintage sheet bunting, wooden shabby chic xmas signs, babushkas, lavender sachets and more so if you lik these type of things then please go ahead and leave a comment :) Much love Mantha xx


  1. i do often visit, but havent left a message. i really felt for you in your posting~ its awful to loose loved ones and my heart goes out to you x
    keep your family close by you and take comfort i them ;0)...depression is a hard thing- i often feel it~ i try and keep positive but some days are harder than others. My situation is completely different on the family front- id love more children but dont have a partner and its been hard going raising my daughter on my own since she was six months. Im nearly 32 and see my life flashing b4 me and think im getting older and id of loved to have met a nice chap and had more children- but it just hasnt worked out that way for me. life is a funny old thing at times. like you im so happy to have my daughter and greatful that i had te chance to be a mother,

    best wishes,
