Hard up and happy: We all mess up sometimes!

As I was sitting on the sofa, Chase, my two-year old son, decided to run at me frantically waving the pastry brush and a cupcake case shouting MIX-Y MUMMY!

This in no uncertain terms means he wants to make a mess in my kitchen.

I thought I would kill two birds with one stone, I do wonder where this expression came from?

Which psycho is going around killing birds with stones?

I thought I would make some biscuits for my blog and he could help.

It started off well, everything looked and smelled as it should, even the nappy I had to change while the chocolate was melting leaving me a few hands shorter than I needed.

The biscuits looked great when they were done, however they were so crumbly they almost disintegrated on contact, it was probably something I did wrong.

The fact is we all mess up sometimes and that’s okay.

It’s even more okay to tell people that you did. I think it’s refreshing to show the not so perfect side of life.

Maybe if we all posted a few of our mistakes, or not so perfect pictures, then the younger generation will learn that you don’t have to be a supermodel, or own the most expensive things.

There are days it’s okay to look like you just got up, or walk around in old trainers or have a good cry.

You do not need to strive for perfection constantly.

There is nothing wrong with having high standards, but everybody makes mistakes.

It’s these mistakes that are the stepping stones, taking us where we want to be.

Dwelling on mistakes doesn’t get anybody anywhere.

If we take what we did wrong and learn from it, then we will be better people for it in the end.
