Hello there and welcome to my blog.
This is my little slice of me-ness. So without further a due, I present to you... me.
I decided when I started that I wouldn't be letting my name be introduced to this or my boyfriends but the rest I can share 🤷♀️.
I'm 28, a woman (clearly) and I'm from lovely Liverpool.
I'm 1 of 3 and the oldest of that 3, and don't I bloody know it!
I come from a big arse family who don't speak all the time but we're good for a party.
3 facts about me:
#1, I was once almost killed by an octopus
#2, I once wrote a letter to MI5 when I was 9 asking to be enrolled in their spy kids programme under the influence of my dad... they never wrote back 😢.
#3, Up until I was about 12 I thought I was a witch, I used to try and cast spells on the regular and run round with a stick which was my wand, once a boy took it from my bag so I choked him until he gave it back. Thank God I am more sane now, I just believe in angels 🤷♀️.
I made my site because being a mum was the biggest thing that ever happened to me. And a lot of things have happened to me in my life which I wont go into now. This is by far the biggest challenge I've ever faced but I enjoy every day as much as I can on lockdown.
I became a mum in February this year, it was the hardest 3 days if my life that slow labour, pushing for 11 hours my baby got stuck and I had the biggest scare of my life. And I wouldn't change it for the world. You'll see me complain on here, I'll poke fun at every little thing including my baby, but he's mine so I can. That doesn't take away from the fact that I am one over protective mumma bear, who will do anything to look after my baby. Being a mum is confusing.
This blog site a way for me to express what I'm really thinking to a target audience, not just people I already know on facebook because I've quickly turned from party girl who always has the craziest things happening to me, to baby bore, who constantly has sick on me, very big difference.
I previously had a blog called sex, texts and what not to say and could go on about what's on there for days so I'm bringing it over to a page on here instead.
I was hit with the idea of my mum blog a couple of weeks back when I was having a bit of an identity crisis. Sat with the baby, no makeup on, hair not brushed for days, on an endless conveyor belt of nappies, soothing cries and making bottles. It was in that moment when I felt like my identity had got lost along the way that I thought FUCK THIS I was a whole person before I made another whole person, if anything I'm more than now than I ever was. It's our own mindset that holds us back not other people or circumstances. I thought how many other women feel this way every day but can't find the drive or the time to write? How many women feel lost and alone with nowhere to turn when they feel like a failure? Too many to count.
And with that, some encouragement from my boyfriend and a hell of a lot of focus and resilience mouthy mum was born. I specifically put in 'you are not alone' so that on my hardest days not only do I have somewhere to write down what I'm going through, other women can have somewhere to look to see that they aren't alone in going through what they are.
I also sometimes just need somewhere to acknowledge who I am and what I'm about, everyone has their own thing, mine used to be krav maga and the gym but it has swiftly become my blog.
So come, join, take a load off and immerse yourself in my world, hopefully you wont feel so alone and will find an escape within your own... or at the very least, have a giggle at my expense.
Don't be a stranger and stay safe
💙 Much Love 💗
