#EarlyBird Challenge

Ever since we lost Georgie my emotions have been all over the place. I have days when I am doing well but I have days when all I want to do is pull the covers over my head and hide in bed all day.

The latter option is not really a viable choice since I have Emma who needs to get up, dressed, fed and into school before 8.45 every week morning.

So I have had to come up with incentives and things that make getting out of bed each morning a bit easier.

Here is some things that are working for me at the moment:

1. Choosing what to wear from the night before and always going for bright colours when possible!
