I hate to start with ‘mum of two’ but that does, increasingly, define me. Having just been made redundant from my job of 14 years, my career, along with my social life and whole nights of sleep, will soon be a distant memory.

My girls were 3  (toddler G, TG, Tigs) and 8 months (BabyG, BBG, Dangermouse) at the time of starting my blog, June 2015. You do the maths. My long suffering husband, Mr G to you, and I are just about to hit our 10 year anniversary, and have transitioned together from twenty-something socialites to sofa dwelling sleep deprived ‘mum and dad’ in our mid thirties.

I love my girls, I love my husband and my home. I like to dabble in healthy eating and one of these days when I’m not so damn knackered, I will get out running again. I’ll share with you my attempts at interior design, and maybe the odd recipe.

Im also human. I like wine. I love crisps. I am master of putting my foot in it, and, in all honesty, sometimes I find being a mum is bloody hard. But also, and ultimately, great.

I have an affinity to all things cool #coolmumclub, sneaky shopping #hidethebags, and generally thinking out loud.

So, please kick back and enjoy my mumisms. I doubt my life will be the most exciting thing you’ve ever read, but if you’re reading you’re probably sharing some of this stuff with me. And after all, there’s gotta be a few million of us doing this parenting lark?

Let’s muddle through together.



Here’s a few of my favourite MMT blogposts…

    Better to be sticking your foot “in it” than sticking your foot in your mouth (one of my biggest faults)! Happy muddling through your trails!

    Hi, I have also just started blogging and found you through Twitter – love your writing and am in awe of how professional your blog looks in such a short time. I totally empathise with the muddling through parenting, I feel the same and can’t wait to hear more of your thoughts.

      Hello Alice, thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment on my blog. I am so bowled over with your lovely comments. I’ve fallen a little bit in love with blogging and hope it might bring something exciting to my already far too exciting life 😉 I’m a scientist by trade so it’s a totally different world, but I’ve always loved writing. I look forward to having a little read of your blog too. X MMT

    Hi, I too have recently started blogging – Can you give me some advice on getting my blog out there and gaining followers xx

    1. MMT Reply

      Hiya, welcome to the madness! My advice is interact with other bloggers, read as many blogs as possible, share and comment on the ones you love, and join in with link ups. Starting (obviously) with #coolmumclub here on a Thursday xxx

        Brilliant I’ll definitely do that! I haven’t got experience with link ups so I’ll be excited to get involved thank you xx

          Good luck 🙂 To begin with the most important thing is definitely to find your feet, and have fun! x
