Hello there and welcome to my mum blog! I became a mum in January 2019 to my baby boy, Rowan. I live with my little bundle of joy and his father/my husband in the north of England. We also have two cats called Jet and Cleo 🙂I’ve learnt that being a mum is an incredible journey of highs and lows. Even though half of the population on the planet have the potential to be on this journey, it is still a unique experience to every one of us.I was not maternal when I was younger (and still feel awkward around other people’s children!) but when I met my husband I quickly realised I wanted to start a family. Once we finally felt we were settled enough to start trying, I was very fortunate to get pregnant with our little boy. We have been over-the-moon ever since.

Sharing my stories

As I write this I have my laptop on my knee and Rowan snoozing on my chest (and my cat Cleo trying desperately to fill the non-existent space in between!). My life has changed completely and, though there are many, many challenges, I love my life as mum. I wanted to create this blog to record the moments both good and bad, because they’re all so fleeting! I also love writing almost as much as I love drawing, and this is a great outlet for me to let my creative juices flow!If you want to read more head on over to the blog drop-down menu and click on the My Life as Mum section 😊
