When I thought about starting my own blog, I wanted to try and give it a name that would best describe me.
I asked myself a question...think of a word to describe yourself Lorna....the answer was simple I thought.....it's Complicated.
So who am I?
I am a 40 year old black woman from the UK
I am married with two children
My mother died when I was 6 months pregnant with my first child...I feel I need to share this moment and I will do.....in time.
My father died of cancer in 2014 aged 84. He was a pastor of a church and blind for most of his later life. I spent all my childhood in church. It's a part of my life I wouldn't change as it has made me who I am today but at the same time I wouldn't want to relive those days. Church isn't for me.
My youngest boy aged 8 has ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and Autism. Life with him is beautiful, funny, exhausting and challenging.
My eldest son aged 10 is a ball of hormones right now, having a brother with ADHD and Autism is confusing and emotional. I think being an older brother trying to find your own way in the world as well as having a fidgety, questioning shadow attached to your 24/7 takes its toll.
I have been with my husband since 2000. We have been through so many of life’s bumps and smooth paths together, we understand each other and love each other. Married life is a blessing and a curse at the same time.
That’s me....in a nut shell
