So today’s blogging 101 homework challenged me to write a blog inspired by another blogger, which I commented on yesterday. I read many, but this one stuck in my mind, from www.laurasummer.co.uk, Laura’s lovely blog. It’s a fun meme on what kind of mum she is which she was nominated for by another blogger. I’ve seen a few of these ‘chain letter’ style blogs now and they are a great way to get your blog out there, and get introduced to new great writers.
Laura’s blog got me thinking. What kind of mum am I?

In my pre-baby days I like to think I had a bit of street cred. An amazing circle of girl friends, a vibrant social life which saw me travel the world and party hard. I could be found most weekends at a gig of a cool band, a bar in London, a festival or just living it up and enjoying my twenties.
I fell pregnant on my 30th birthday which could be an ironic coincidence. As I left my twenties behind and celebrated the future that lay ahead (I’d been TTC nearly a year) I confided in my pals that my biggest fear was losing who I am, and becoming a boring frumpy mum. ‘That’ll never happen!’ Was the general response.
Even though I’m no longer 12, I still pine to be cool. *shame*

Hello little one,
I know what you’re thinking, and I want a chance to explain.
Yes, your sister does have 12 photo albums on the shelf, and you have none. I promise, I will sort out your pictures and do yours soon. Maybe I’ll do a few less this time if that’s ok? For space saving of course.

When I imagined life as a mum there were a few parts of the deal that were pretty unpleasant, but I was happy to brace myself for. Sleepless nights, putting my career on hold, having a wobbly tummy. There was one thing however I must have missed in the small print, and certainly had never heard of before.
Post partum hair loss. AKA Telogen effluvium.

In an attempt to master this thing, I’ve signed up for a mini course in blogging aka Blogging101. So homework is to tell you a little about me.

I’m a professional going through redundancy whilst on maternity leave; A party animal in retirement; An exhausted domestic goddess wannabe; A modern day bohemian tree hugger. (Those who know me know I’m partial to a person hug too).
