The brilliant book I’ve recently read about becoming a mum is called #BONKERS by @oliviasiegl and in it is a quote which says “Advice is a bit like shoes. You don’t have room in your wardrobe for every pair. Some you won’t like, and some, which you think will be perfect for you, won’t fit at all. Most importantly, sometimes you will say to hell with it all and instead just walk barefoot” Since having Mia I’ve been given loads of advice. Some which fits perfectly in my Shoe room and some that didn’t even make it out of the shoe box! Seeing it this way has been extremely therapeutic. With so much advice flying around, I highly recommend mostly walking barefoot 😉👣
