Something a little different today, but just as important! Legal and General contacted me this week to share with me some interesting research on the value of a mum. They looked at how much a mum would be worth if she was paid an hourly rate for everything that she does for the household - It's a lot!
However, I wanted to look at more than just monetary value. I think that it is really important to have strong, supportive people in your life and for that, my mum ticks all the boxes. I count myself really lucky to have grown up in a strong household with a family that has supported, through all of my bad decisions!
When it comes to people who are willing to inspire you I really think it is so important to listen. We're surrounded by people who want to bring us down in so many ways, so when you have someone willing to bring you up - embrace it!
A big part of my body positivity comes from having parents who allowed me to be that way. My mum has never told me I couldn't do something because of my size or discouraged me from wearing something because of the way I look. In fact, when the whole #WeAreTheThey thing was at its peak, my parents were its biggest supporters - and that's a feeling that money (and hourly) rates can't buy.
A few weeks ago I had a mum and daughter day out in Manchester and it was so much fun! I visited the Topsy Curvy shop with her and we tried on loads of outfits and generally had a good giggle. It was so lovely to have a day out together and I will be blogging about that fully soon!
