#MorningWin Challenge: The Adventures of Billy Biscuit

Everyone needs a bit of joy in their lives and motivation to get out of bed in the morning.

Ever since we lost Georgie, I have found mornings difficult. Waking up to face the day feels at times overwhelming.

So…I create.

I create beautiful lunches for Emma to take with her to school.

I create links with the past by carrying or wearing a reminder of Georgie’s existence every day, to give me courage and feel him near.

And I also create through my writing, when I feel the need and find the time:

“Once upon the time, there was a pack of biscuits(or two…or three…).

They were sent for reviewing to a mummy blogger who decided their ephemeral life should go down in history as the “adventures of Billy Biscuit.”

So, instead of being shoved in and munched on unceremoniously, these privileged biscuits got to accompany her everywhere and have a glam and useful existence.

Some of them got consumed reverently on a Sunday morning, during the slightly too long and less than entertaining Sunday service:

Here is the pack exercising on a make do yoga mat before…consumption. (The pink swimming goggles were an unnecessary piece of gear, included because they had the word fitness on them. Hint..Hint…)
