A Day In The Life

Finding Myself Again

Children are not a distraction from more important work. They are the most important work

C.S. Lewis

If you’d have asked me a couple of months ago to tell you about myself, I wouldn’t have had much to say apart from I’m a mum. That’s it. Not because I didn’t have any interests, history or cool personality traits. I had all of those, I just couldn’t see them.

I had lost who I was.

After having children four years ago, I’d put everything into raising and caring for my boys that I forgot about myself. I was in constant mum mode because the truth of the matter is, parenting doesn’t stop. When they’re tucked up in bed at night there isn’t a magic switch that turns it off.

After becoming hooked on watching The Joe Rogan Experience Podcast on Youtube, I started to question everything! (Honestly, check them out you’ll see what I mean) This is when I realised I didn’t know who I was anymore, call it an epiphany. After the realisation, I made a pact to start finding myself again.

So this is me…

I’m probably too honest for my own good and say things without thinking first. Normally about myself, nothing that would hurt anyone’s feelings. I like to share cringey stories about myself and later cringe at the overshare. But that’s me, I don’t take myself too seriously. I love a good debate, so tend to be a little opinionated but respect others opinions too.

My personal goals

  • I want to expand my intellectual and spiritual knowledge
  • Publish a novel
  • Continue with my small business – making cute crocheted soft


I really wanted to create a blog firstly to expand my writing skills but also to share things that make me laugh, funny and embarrassing stories. With some serious discussions about things I’m interested in, maybe get some debates going. I would like to discuss issues that many people, including myself, have had to deal with and throw in some taboo discussions. Mixed in with my short stories and novel extracts, recipes, activities for children, crochet patterns and many more things that relate to me.

I would love to hear from you, so don’t hesitate to drop me a comment 😁
