    I love doing free stuff!

    The forest is great. Collecting big sticks and cones.

    Blackberry picking

    The beach – sandcastles and hunting for shells

    Puddle hunting and kicking leaves in the autumn.

    Picnics.

    Building stuff using the contents of recycling bin. (Trouble is they then want to keep it ??‍♂️)

    Patience, understanding and not take things to heart.

    I found it so hard when my wife had post natal depression. I couldn’t understand what was going on. Why she was being so unreasonable. It hasn’t gone away and my eldest is 7 now.

    I still don’t fully understand it, and don’t think I ever will.

    But I can read it better. Know when to comment and when to stay quiet.

    Support wise. Just need to be there. Try and pick up the slack when she is low. If wants to sleep I take the girls out.

    Frustrating and horrible thing to live with.

    Running doesn’t agree with me. Wanted too but never felt comfortable.
    But I cycle which has the same effect, clears my head and the achievements really keep me on a positive
