Is a link to a petition to sign and¬†prevent any more beautiful innocent children and babies from drowning with their families for a want of a better life. My days will be haunted for a long time after seeing little Aylan Kurdi’s body, laying lifelessly¬†at the edge of the sea. As a mother, a woman and a member of this human race, it kills me to see these beautiful children losing their precious lives when we as a nation could be helping, protecting and even saving them.

Right now, I am ashamed of Britain. Our doors aren’t as open as other parts of Europe and I hang my head down low. I hope you all sign this and support the cause.

Rest in peace little ones. xxx

Closer to Home.

I saw this clip last night and it really resonated. Seeing a little girl leading a normal life only to have it turned upside down in one quick heartbeat is quite sad. Unfortunately, this is the case for many children all over our planet struggling with the dramatic and soul destroying changes that affect them when it comes to war and disasters. The Syrian Crisis, Afghanistan and the growing crisis in Ukraine are filled with innocent children who do not deserve the life they are having to endure. Our hearts and thoughts belong with them. Please support Save The Children.

UK Devastation.

My mother, husband and I awoke to a huge 10ft tree fallen on her garden lawn yesterday morning. Storms have gripped Britain. The winds have taken a break today and clear sky covers London. Bright sun only worries us. Is it a warning of what is to come? The weather forecast is not looking good. Here in London, unlike the rest of the country, we have been relatively lucky. The unfortunate incident that happened to my mother yesterday is one of many in the area. Trees are a danger. The winds were so violent Friday night, we could hear the walls moaning. It was quite frightening.

The rest of the UK are fearing the next set of floods. They are coming. We have all been warned. Devastation is tearing through the country. Families have lost their entire worlds as homes they have grown up in have been totally destructed and ruined. People are dying on the street from falling trees, they are being electrocuted by stray power lines tangled and hidden among the broken branches. It was reported yesterday that a young woman was killed whilst driving through Central London when past of a building collapsed on her.

My thoughts go out to the country. I hope the government stop charging people for sandbags to protect their homes from the never ending flood water and pull their fingers out to help. People are angry. They are suffering massive losses and feel incredibly alone.
