“Who the hell am I?!” Thats a good question.
I’m not even sure I know the answer.
Well, I’m a married Mum of 3 energetic, amusing and utterly bonkers, boys. I’m in my 30’s and trying to forge a new identity for myself, other than being known as that woman they refer to as, Mum.
In my previous life, LBC (LBC – Life before Children) i was a dancer, a dance teacher and a field hockey fanatic. I used to have grace, poise and stomach muscles. Now i’ve had the kids, i’ll be lucky if I can even see my toes, let alone touch them and my stomach muscles are only good for ‘winter insulation’ purposes.
I’m currently a ‘stay at home Mum’ (I hate that phrase, but not as much as Housewife. It makes you it sound like you’re living in the 1930’s and wearing an apron all day whilst scrubbing the doorstep ready for when your hubby gets home from work…nothing like a shiny doorstep to keep your husband happy!)
I’ve childminded, worked as a TA in a primary school and a career highlight of mine, as a teenager, was reaching the dizzy heights of ‘Microwave technician’ at my local pub kitchen. I certainly knew how to work a microwave, actually this particular job has come in quite handy in later life for heating up all those ready meals when you’re too knackered to stand, let alone cook, and for all those Ella’s Kitchen pouches (yes, I use them…oh, the shame. Actually there is no shame in using them, as I’m sure my toddler will agree).
I have 2 of my boys at primary school and one ruling the roost at home with me during the day. I use precious nap times to jot down my mummy musings and daily experiences and then I share them with you lovely lot to read over whilst you’re sat in the toilet or up at 2:30am feeding the baby for the 4th time (I promise it gets easier, I dont know when, but I’ve been told it does).
I began writing on my facebook page just for friends and family to read and then, after some encouragement from my husband, family and friends who found my writing ‘mildly entertaining’ (and quite a large amount of Gin) i decided to bite the bullet and start a blog. Whatever one of those is. Truth be told, I’m winging it, in more ways than one.
And so, here I am!
Thanks for coming on over to have a look at my ramble, if you enjoy what you read, do find me on that book of Face (Facebook) and like my page. It’s a nice way of being able to connect with you all a bit more personally.
