About This Blog


Welcome to my “About this Blog” page.

This is the bit where I tell you all about me and why I write this blog.  Firstly though, I’ve been told that all blog pages like this should have a mugshot, so here’s mine:

Yes, I know it is the same photo as the one over there.
I'm too busy to do another one.

I started this blog in August 2013 (which is ages ago, right?) because I was a bit bored one day and thought that writing a blog would be quite an easy hobby to fit alongside a family.

It isn’t.  It’s actually quite hard sometimes.

Mostly I write about the things that amuse and annoy me in day to day family life, such as doing the school run, being a housewife and having five children (yes, five.  You did read that right - and no I don’t have my hands full, well not much).

I suppose this blog is a reflection of what it’s like inside my head - I’m not sure whether this is a good or a bad thing but some people find it amusing and I have been featured on Mumsnet, Netmums and Britmums in the past year.

I’m quite proud of this.

My family on the other hand, couldn’t care less…

I should tell you about them too, shouldn’t I?

My husband (or DH as he’s sometimes referred to here) - 40 something, likes not appearing on this blog.

Teen Boy (DS1) - 15, likes the whole of Nintendo, dislikes being sociable.

Teen Girl (DD1) - 13, likes Manga, Minecraft, Instagram and painting her nails colours I don’t like.

Pre-teen Boy (DS2) - 10, obsessed with Skylanders, Lego and Minecraft.  Lives in a pit made out of all three.

Twin Girl (DD2) - 6, part girl, part My Little Pony, all attitude.

Twin Boy (DS3) - 6, likes everything the pre-teen boy likes.  Also very fond of Lego Mixels.

Me?  Well, I’m 41 and like watching daytime TV (particularly Judge Rinder, who is an actual genius - there's a blog post about it here somewhere), new handbags and the occasional gin and tonic.  I also like to run.  After nearly a whole lifetime of being sedentary it is my new love - do catch me on Instagram for regular pictures of my running shoes and exhausted looking face.

I hang out on all of the usual social media platforms.  The links for them are at the top of the sidebar underneath my attractive picture.  Please do click on them, follow me and chat to me there too.

You can also leave me a comment on any of my blog posts. I read them all and reply to most of them (unless you are that weird spam lady who tried to sell me a love potion once).

Thanks for reading!



  1. I love your blog and reading about your household of 5 is so fast paced and frantic! Makes my household of two seem tame at times!

  2. I love your comment about your 5 year old, part girl, part my little pony! Made me laugh....sounds like my 4 year old too x
