To sum me up quickly – I’m a 28 year-old mama of two who tries her best, really likes a glass of wine and really bad 90’s pop music. And I like to write and take photographs, which I share here, and make videos for my YouTube channel.
The long story is that I have two babies.
One smiling, happy, brilliant little boy, who makes me happier than I thought possible. He was born on 12th June 2012. His name is Bill and he’s now four years-old, at school and regularly surprising me with his in-depth knowledge of animals. How I ended up with a four year-old is beyond me. Time flew. He is honestly my best buddy though. My male equivalent. The gentlest, sweetest soul I know – if a little bit annoying sometimes. But who isn’t?
And then there’s my little Daisy. Who was born on 21st April 2016 (you can read our pregnancy announcement here, and see our gender reveal too). She was born with the same syndrome I was born with – Stickler Syndrome – and spent six weeks in special care before she came home. The day she came home was one of the best of our lives. We had a tough first six months, but she is doing brilliantly now and we’re so proud of her.

As well as this blog, and my job, I have a YouTube channel of my own, where I share clips of our life (or things I’ve just bought). I am also part of Channel Mum, known as ‘the honest face of parenting’. You should definitely give them a subscribe if you like to see real videos from real mamas.
