After Anabelle - Raising Rainbows
Heartbreak. Joy. Death. Life. But most of all Love.

Wednesday, 26 January 2011


Over the last week I’ve become more involved in the blogging world. I’ve begun to realise it is a venture that has quite a following and community behind it; and so after hearing about British Mummy Bloggers, I decided to join up.  Networking; reading about others experiences and hoping that they read about mine.
Today I’ve been tagged in mumsarcade’s blog http://gigglingatitall.blogspot.com/ to reveal seven things about myself that my readers will not know. What a refreshing change! I cannot promise that some of my readers won’t already know some or all of these things but I hope at least some of them are mildly interesting!

ONE: My middle name is Elizabeth. As children it was not uncommon for my Dad to fondly refer to us by our middle names; Lizzy being his shortened version of choice for me. It sometimes made me wonder why it wasn’t my first name! He is still known to do it today.
TWO: Jon and I almost share a birthday. He celebrates his on the 6th March and me the 7th. He is 4 years and 1 day older than me.  
THREE: Jon and I met on a website called faceparty which was popular before facebook. He sent me a random message one day just telling me we had gone to the same secondary school. This turned into a penpal type relationship and his persevering for a year before I agreed to meet him. We finally met for my 21st birthday and the rest, they say, is history.
FOUR: My favourite verse in the bible is Phillipians 4 v 13. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” It often pops into my thoughts, which is just as well because I always need reminding of it. Especially when I’m reaching breaking point; which is often these days.
FIVE: My TV crush is David Boreanaz. Also known by Booth in Bones and the famous Angel vampire! Just lovely!  
SIX: I can play the piano. I used to be able to play very well but I am considerably out of practice these days. I used to play classics, but these days the most I play is a few hymns in school assembly and of course for Christmas concert; the highlight of the school calendar year!  I wish I could play like I used to and would love my own piano at home!  
SEVEN: My first doll was called Cherry. I’m still strangely attached to her and will keep her forever. I’m not sure I could even pass her on to my children; although she currently sits in Anabelle’s room amongst her things.

That was nice for a brief change of focus! Anyone visiting feel free to ask me something about myself that you still don’t know!

caroline, i just want to say that you are dealing with everything amazingly!! And i know that its really hard when so many, thankfully, don't truly understand what you're going through. i just wanted to say that Annabelle will always be a part of your family and in the future when people ask you how many children you have you will alwys count her among them and be proud to explain. I think of Nicholas every day and i still ask why? but i am really glad that i went on to have his sister in the following year - not because he could ever be replaced, but because i so needed to be a mum xx

Thanks so much for taking part. I like many have not had your experience so don't know what to say or do to help. Hoping that by reaching out to you yesterday I at least recognised that you are a mum and a very interesting and inspiring one too at that.
You take care and if I can do anything at all to help even a little bit, you give a shoutout
