For a long time, I didn’t share photographs of Charlie on social media.
I didn’t feel like it was my place to do that and so, whilst I took lots of pictures of him, I kept them offline.
But once I’d settled into my role as his step parent, I started to feel more comfortable and confident and, with Gary’s permission, I started to add him to my online world.
This means that there are loads of pictures of him that I have never shared online.
And so today, I thought I’d post a few of my favourites from our first trip away as a family; back in 2014, when we had an overnight trip to Alton Towers…
And we won’t talk about how we had to ride all the way home on an AA van, because Gary drove over a boulder, because that would be mean…
