So let me tell you all about one mum. Sometimes I still have to close my eyes, take a deep breath (and a glass of wine) and realise this is my life; I’m a mum.

 I’m a busy, stay at home mum trying to raise 2 very different little boys and 1 big man child. For the sake of this blog I will use their nicknames, Tink and the Pup (honestly he’s not a dog although, he sometimes acts like it).

Some facts about me:

  • I live in Scotland next to a beach
  • I love chocolate, wine and Skinny Tan
  • My go to comfort meal is Spaghetti Bolognaise
  • I hate people who park in parent and child but have no kids.
  • My family is my life.
  • My sister is my best friend.
  • I have never died my hair.
  • My eyes sometimes look green but they are actually blue.
  • I come from a family of gingers. P.S. We rock.
  • I apparently never answer my phone so my husband has started to turn the volume up when I’m not looking (I usually have it on silent)
  • I once believed that the crunchy nut lane was a real thing (don’t judge me, I used to be very gullible)


I have a bachelor’s degree in Computing Science although I was never your typical computer geek.


I began my career in I.T. but life lead me to Resource Planning. Honestly, I LOVED this role. I got to forecast, analyse and schedule for a large company in Glasgow. If I hadn’t had my boys I’d still be there, probably as a Senior RP by now. One can dream. Instead, I have 2 beautiful boys; I’m a member of the Parent Council and Data Protection Lead for a local charity. Despite temporarily giving up my career I have a very full and happy life.

I decided to start this blog as a way of expressing myself and sharing my experiences.

Funny Fact about me…

The first interview I had was for GAP Clothing as an I.T. Analyst, or so I thought. Turns out it wasn’t the clothing brand but some plant garden type company. It was so embarrassing. What was even more surprising was that I got invited back for a 2nd interview so I must have done something right.
