I didn't realise that being a "Mummy Blogger" was about to open me up to so many new friendships, so much support and advice, or so many laughs.
In my new Mummy Blogger life I've happened across a lot of people who've made a real difference in the lives of other women and other Mothers - Emma Richards is most definitely one of those women. Known to most as The Real Supermum Emma works day after day to help, support and advise other Mums, opening the way for them to find further help and support and to escape from and heal from abusive situations, to find help for depression, simply to find someone to talk to about a bad day. Emma provides love, friendship and laughter at the times they are most needed and she gives of herself and her time freely. Not just Supermum, just super.
Below, in her own words, is Emma's story.
