About

Not a lifestyle blog, just a full time working first time mummy of a 9 year old boy, a no thrills very REAL personal blog, trying to smile on through whatever life throws at us.

London born and raised 40 something gal residing in Bedfordshire with her ickle family.

My loves in life are art, photography and music, none of which I have very much time for now other than quick snapshots and Spotify.

I am working 9 to 5 (well more recently a flexi hybrid arrangement of it from home due to the pandemic) and surviving on my morning caffeine boost, living for the small amounts of time inbetween that I get to spend with my small family unit.

I keep a blog as I find it therapeutic and a outlet since becoming a mummy and facing bereavement & maternity discrimination all in that first postnatal year after giving birth to my son, and continually facing up to my demons on a daily basis as a child sexual abuse survivor and life as a introvert mum, and more recently the challenges of being a mum with a son with suspected SEN needs, EHCP challenges and more recently a suspected invisible disability as my child is registered as disabled yet to the outside world clearly does not look disabled at all and being baffled to what the issues & causes still are completely, other than he was born with a neonatal infection and was discovered when he was a few hours old, although recovered well.
