I’m afraid this isn’t going to be the most interesting of blog posts, but I felt it quite necessary to write!
I wanted to say an extremely heartfelt thank you to all of you that have taken the time to get in touch to offer words of support. After reading all of the awful comments on the DM I totally lost any faith in ever rectifying such an awful situation and yet, people who don’t even know me, whether they are mums or not, have been kind enough to share my story resulting in my side being read almost 8000 times in less than 48 hours. It might not touch the surface compared to the damage caused by the press, but It absolutely means the world to me. It has obviously been a pretty rubbish week, but I am literally overwhelmed by the kind thoughts.
And to my friends that have been texting, calling, emailing, commenting and coming to the house, I love you all, you really learn the value of true friendships when faced with a situation like this!
Without my blog, I would have just been another helpless victim of bad press, but thanks to it – I have been able to voice a response to the hideous article both on here and via the Huffington Post (thanks very much to them too!) and got the word around that I am actually just a very normal mum of 2 and not the monster portrayed!
But enough is enough. No more feeling sorry for myself and dwelling on the utter humiliation. It’s time to move on and tomorrow it is business as usual on this blog, I don’t know what I’m going to write about yet but it’s going to be happy and carefree!
Much love xx
