#coolmumclub: Meet the members…Morgan Prince

This weeks #coolmumclub Meet the members is the last one for three weeks while I go on a little break for half term, and our family holiday. So I’ll leave you with Morgan Prince, off of Morgans Milieu, If there was a word that described Morgans blog it would be lovely. She comes across as gentle and kind, and we share a dislike for Jeremy Kyle! There has to be better things to do than watch that stuff, right?!

Enjoy. and if you would like to be featured in the Meet the members series when I return from my break, please drop me a line at mummuddlingthrough@gmail.com.

Hi, I’m Morgan.

Okay, so that’s as far as I got before I started to struggle with what to write. You see, I’m great at coming up with ideas for blog posts and getting on with writing them but when it comes to writing about myself my mind goes blank.

I’ve never been great at telling people about myself, I feel like I’m bragging, and I’m really not! I can’t stand people who go on and on about how wonderful they are, can you?

So anyway, I’m Morgan, Mum to LP (just turned 7) and BP (turns 12 in August), and wife to the Hubby. LP is our little entertainer, he’s full of energy all of the time and loves nothing more than being outside playing football or basketball. BP is the quiet one, and at the moment the stroppy one. He’s our tween, our creative, and he loves to write (wonder where he gets that from?). The Hubby is my rock, we’ve been together for nearly 14 years. He makes mobile games (like Candy Crush, Crossy Road) and works at home, which works out great for us.

Living in a house full of boys has its challenges, but to be honest I wouldn’t have it any other way. Although they do things that drive me absolutely crazy (like not changing the toilet roll – AARRGH!!) they are so loving that a rib-crushing hug makes up for it all.

So does the fact that I get to have a house full of lego and no one bats an eyelid. I love lego. The Taj Mahal, the Palace Theatre, the Tower Bridge, and many more sets are a part of my collection and I intend to keep collecting.

Being the only girl in a house full of boys can lead to insanity though (or so I’ve heard) and so I turned to blogging in order to have something just for me. Actually to tell the truth I started out writing a novel, and started a blog alongside that. After a while though I decided I loved blogging much more than writing the novel and put it aside.

Writing posts on Morgan’s Milieu is my outlet. I love to write, whether that’s creatively or not, writing has always been a part of me. The words flow from me as my fingers fly across the keyboard and I feel a release. Writing is therapy, it is a chance to voice fears without actually giving them a ‘voice’. For some reason I find it much easier to write than I do to talk.

That’s probably why the majority of my friends are people I’ve met online. Some I have met in real life and some I may never meet, but they’re all friends.

The friendships are probably the thing I love most about blogging. I’ve made connections with people that totally ‘get’ me without having spoken to me. I’ve had people help me out when I’ve been feeling down, and I’ve been able to help others too.

I blog when my boys are at school. Between 9am and 3:15pm is my blogging time, allowing time for lunch of course, with the occasional evening in there too. In that time I get to write posts, host a linky (#PoCoLo), and showcase other fantastic bloggers.

Blogging doesn’t yet pay the bills but my boys know that when they’re at school I ‘work’. They see my blog as my work and think it’s great that they benefit occasionally when they’re asked to try out new toys or go to some event.

For me blogging is my thing, it’s what I do. If it wasn’t for blogging I’d be a bored SAHM with nothing else to do but watch daytime TV. And I cannot give Jeremy Kyle another viewer, I just couldn’t forgive myself!

Huh. It turns out that wasn’t so hard after all.

Thanks so much to MMT for having me. x

    Totally relate to Morgan, here, (although not so much regarding the lego)! As a SAHM myself, blogging is such an important outlet for me. With my two littlies still at home, I am ridiculously envious of your days. Lovely to ‘meet’ you. #coolmumclub

    Hi Morgan! Lovely to get to know a bit more about you. I started blogging for the same reasons- now I feel like I have 2 unpaid jobs Luckily I love both of them. I rarely have the TV on during the day but totally with you on the JK front x #coolmumclub

    Lovely to hear so much about you and your bit of the blogging world. You are right it is work and there are many rewards. For the record, Crossy Road is the no.1 mobile game in our house! A big cheer to your hubby. #coolmumclub

    Hi Morgan! You’re in a house full of boys and I’m in a house full of girls…and NONE of them change the toilet roll! I loved your description of blogging: as your fingers fly across the keyboard you feel release – beautifully summed up. Alison x #coolmumclub

    Great little bio! I work so I don’t have the same problem of filling my days. I wish I could put that much time into my blogging. I love it and I feel it’s a bit of escapism for myself as well.

    Ive read a few of Morgans blogs, so its great to know more about her. I feel her pain with the fact that no one changes the toilet roll, and that she has a house full of lego lol – I have girls and its still the same lol 😉 I love the community that blogging provides, it is a great way to make new friends. #coolmumsclub

    Lovely to find out a little bit more about you! I’m with you – I feel I express myself so much better through writing than in person, and I think that’s partly why the relationships that are formed through blogging are so great. #coolmumclub

  19. Something About Baby Reply

    Lovely post, I too started writing a novel and that led me to start up a blog! I will eventually go back to my novel though (I hope!). Lovely to find out about you, I shall be popping over to your blog to have a nosey 🙂 #coolmumclub

    What a lovely series to find out more about the people behind the blogs. I think some people struggle to communicate face to face, but that doesn’t mean they have less to say or aren’t as interesting. Blogging is a great outlet for that. I am glad that you are enjoying writing your blog, and have found your place. #coolmumclub

    Lovely to know more about you! I love #POCOLO as well! #coolmumclub

    Until our little Sophie came along this January, I was also outnumbered in a house full of boys! We have three boys and that makes for a lot of smells, noises and mud! I’ve not heard of your blog before so it will be great to go and check it out. I always love finding new blogs to read. #coolmumclub x

    Big fan of Morgans blog, was lovely to read a little more about you! I have to admit, Jeremy Kyle is a guilty pleasure of mine, not that I ever get to watch it these days, but blogging is definitely a much better way to spend my free time I’ll agree on that! #coolmumclub

    Hi Morgan!! It’s great to meet you I like you found blogging so cathartic as soon as I’ve got all the words down on the page I just feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders about whatever it is going on! #coolmumclub

    Hey Morgan. It’s great being able to get to know someone that you cross paths with frequently! I love this series! #coolmumclub

    You can beat a bit of Lego – it’s come a long way since I was little! #coolmumclub

    Lovely to hear more about you Morgan! I can imagine living in a house of boys must be challenging, but just think once you’ve got past all that Lego, you’ll have 3 grown men to look after and protect you! Am with you on the Jeremy Kyle front! #CoolMumClub xx
