I’m a thirty-something wife and mum from Essex, UK. I like food, wine and binge-watching TV boxsets. I’m not a Perfect Mum, I’m a Good Enough Mum and I’m okay with that.
Motherhood is hard, harder than I expected, and it was made a little tougher when, after my gorgeous son was born in 2013, I unexpectedly found myself in deep despair, battling Postnatal Depression and intense anxiety. Now recovered, I created this blog as a place to share my thoughts, feelings and experiences in an attempt to help anyone else currently suffering to feel less alone. You can find out more about my PND journey and read all my mental health and self-help content here.
I’m also just a mum and I regularly post about the joys and challenges of parenthood and the adventures of my preschooler “Caterpillar,” alongside family recipes, product & book reviews, tips & tricks and my take on the big parenting topics of the day.
If you’re looking for perfect Pinterest crafts you’re not likely to find them here but if you’re looking for honest observations, discussions and experience-sharing on every aspect of life with kids then you’re definitely in the right place.
Parenthood is a journey, not a destination, and I’m here to find the joy in it where I can. I hope you’ll join me!
PR Enquiries – if you have a product or service that you’d like me to review or write about then I’d love to work with you, and you can find out more on my Work With Me page.
