Campaigning is my life’s work that’s a no brainer to me. The passion it has ignited in my brain is awesome! But coupled with full-time motherhood, I’ll be honest, it is really really tough!
Today’s intention was to work on my #plasticfreeseaford
campaign 👊🏻 The reality is #exhausted #fuzzybrain
It’s a double edged sword when everything you’ve wanted in the world is utterly reliant on you, making you feel like Wonder Woman in the one hand, a failure that wants to scream on the other.
So if this is resonating with any of you beauts of followers, you’re not alone!
Being a fab person/doing your bit/being strong doesn’t mean working yourself so hard you can’t remember your own name or blame forgetting an appointment on sleep deprivation when in reality you just had a stupid moment! Non campaigning post over. As you were in the fight against plastic pollution. 👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻 #motherhood #parenting #campaigning #juggling #theirgeneration #motivate #gratitude #dowhatmatters #maman #zerowaste #plasticfreeliving #overwhelmed #wonderwoman #love #life #children
Mon coeur 🌠💙 Ma vie 🌠💙 Recently all the solo campaigning efforts have been making me feel a bit on the low side. It's hard giving your everything and juggling motherhood/being a wife/being you and doing it principally on your own. Don't get me wrong, I love the environmental warrior mama I am with my zero waste attitude ✌️🦈 but there's never any time when you're juggling a young family and saving the planet. But this boy. My first born. I look at his face and start to pull myself together. His innocence. His wise ways. He is compassionate, kind, fun and free. Everything I do is for him and his fierce sister. I need reminding to take time out for me, more than likely a beach clean 🤗, but to have a moment to clear my head of sadness.
Motherhood and depression have been hand in hand recently, I didn't know that would be possible when I was pregnant. But it is. And I'm.open about it. About the struggles. About the loneliness. If anyone feels depressed and unable to put into words how they feel, this ZeroWasteMaman is here for you, to share a (Reuseable) cuppa or give a big hug (how I imagine a hug from Sir David Attenborough to be 🌍💙). I wouldn't have coped without my friends, both those I've meet on here and those I class as family. I'm lucky.
Happy Monday! We've got this! 🤙🌍💙🌻 #environmentalcampaigner #mentalhealth #zerowastemaman #honest #motivated #strongwomen #truetothecause #depression #motherslove #motherandson #motherlessmother #anxiety #grateful #theirgeneration #savingtheplanet #mothersmission #beachclean #motherearth #summerwithaconscience #seainmyheart #waterisgoodforthesoul
La belle Mer.
I care so much about the health of mother nature's achievement and combating the destruction humans are having on it.
This is why you will never ever find me drinking from a plastic straw or plastic cup (even if it's contents are gin or champagne). Ditch single use. There really is NO EXCUSE 💙

Sorry it's a photo of me and not an
Insta-spiring photo of what I was up to (I was.super disorganised today 🤦) ANYWAY! What a Bloomin super dooper enthusing, motivating, gratifying time I had with the Eco Council at Sidlesham Primary School. Totally clued up, receptive and full of amazing ideas, the group and school, looking for ways to help the planet and learn why they have to...🌏🌊💙 I actually came away feeling so depressed because of what the last 40 or so years of mankind's greed for convenience and profit both emotionally (hunting wild animals) and monetarily through production of plastic products that won't last, have caused to the planet these wonderful children stand to inherit....I felt so full of burden and helplessness for what lies ahead in even trying to stop Plastic pollution and all of the other environment issues....then my Unicorn heart flipped it's switch💟 🦄✨🌟 these amazing little people are the future and they are FULL of good intention!! Little Lorax incarnations ready to change the minds of everyone to care and make changes. Peace and love everyone. 🙌 I hope you've all been inspired by someone or something this week 🙌👁️💟 #ecowarriormaman #EcoCouncil #SidleshamPrimary #teaching #inspiring #motivating #grateful #theirgeneration #bethechange #childrenarethefuture #nomoresingleuseplastic #noplanetb #beachclean #itsabeautifulworld #bansingleuseplasticby2020 #newconsumers #littleonesloveLush #change10forthem #motherslove
My maman. You can't always predict when grief will descend. Today I found a short video I didn't realise I had of her. I burst out in wailing tears, face etched with pain and mourning. Heartbroken.
My two babies stopped what they were doing and become my mini heroes. They hugged me showing total empathy and compassion.
I am eternally grateful for how life is with my babies. They spur me on to do good, be thoughtful and fight the good fight. The umbilical cord to my Maman. Reminders how her spirit lives with us all the time.
Give thanks. Be grateful and take nothing for granted. X ❤️🌷 #begrateful #thankful #love #motherslove

She did it again! Congrats to Riley for winning student council 3rd year in a row! I'm so proud of her! But this time she spent even more time on her speech because she knew she was going up against some great students and some great speeches! What I'm even more impressed by was the group running against each other, made a pact the morning before speeches to congratulate each other and still be friends no matter what the outcome. Here's to my daughter and her friends creating REAL change! #kindnessiseverything #theirgeneration #teachingourgeneration #congratulations #rileyforpresident2042
Michael O'Neill "The Who: Their Generation"
Ecco il libro giusto per ripassare un po' in attesa del concerto!
La storia degli Who attraverso un mucchio di fotografie in grande formato e un'analisi di ogni disco per scoprire o riscoprire come Pete e soci hanno marchiato a fuoco la musica moderna...

CHICAGO | Mom and Dad went gaga when I told them about the announcement that the band Chicago will have a concert in Manila.
They were so excited for tonight's concert that they almost forgot to bring their tickets! Lol
