Ooh! so much to say...where do I start!

Well, I am now counting down to going back to work. I have been off on maternity leave for just over a year and I'm due back the day after Thomas' first that's 4 weeks on tuesday.

There's a lot of fun to fit in before then, like a family holiday to Menorca, woohoo!
It has to be said I am sooo looking forward to this hol, Faye loved our last holiday abroad which was to Rhodes when she was 3, (she still tells people ice cream is free in Greece!) I'm hoping it will just be pure quality time, the hotel is right on the beach, which is supposed to be beautiful and there's children's entertainment in the evening, (which although we're not big on children's entertainment, it does have it's place in small doses!).
Another reason I'm looking forward to this holiday, is because when we went to Greece, I was recovering from quite a stressful time in my life, when I had been suffering from panic attacks, and I was particularly worried about travelling on the motorway to and from the airport and was also concerned about running out of oxygen on the aeroplane! (my heart goes out to anyone suffering from these terrible attacks, they are so frightening). However, the Bible says that "God did not give us a spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind", and I am pleased to say that I am ready to face this trip head on and enjoy this little adventure with my family x

Here and Now!

Well here it very own Blog! Inspired by my older brother ( and encouraged by my beloved husband Ste.

This blog, I hope will give those who read it a little insight into me and my life! I love reading Gaz' blog and seeing what my gorgeous nephews have been up to and reading, if you like, Gaz' thoughts, and though I don't want this to be a copy it will, I hope, have similarities. I hope it at least gives my children Faye and Thomas something to laugh at when they're older!

So firstly, let me introduce myself! I am Debbie Wood, born in 1972, in Wolverhampton.
I am a wife, mum, daughter, sister, auntie and friend. I am a Christian, who believes that Jesus died and rose again so that we can spend eternity with him and I firmly believe God loves every single one of us much more than we can begin to comprehend.
