This month I’m participating in Fat Mum Slim’s FMS Photo A Day and todays prompt is the letter D, so I chose the theme ‘dream’ (you can check out my other photos on Instagram).

Augusten Burroughs’ quote rings so true for me at the moment as I spend each day working towards becoming a work at home Mum – a dream that still feels so distant. Some days it feels not only impossible, but also utterly impractical.
