So here it is. My shiny new blog. Ramblings and nonsense of a mummy blogger blagging her way through each week as a new(ish) mum.
Before I go on, I want to make two promises:
1) All those guidebooks to babies, all those ‘how to create the perfect child in five easy steps’, all those preachy blogs and know-it-all mums – I hate them. I promise not to be one of those.
2) Our daughter is undoubtedly our biggest achievement and we will never take for granted how lucky we are to have her. But there seems to be a secret code of parenthood which means keeping the candid stuff quiet and instead declaring nothing but the good stuff. I promise to be honest, whatever kind of day I’m having.
Before I signed up to 24/7 Disney Junior, I spent my working days writing in one form or another. So I thought I’d start it up again, this time writing about things that genuinely interest me, catch my attention, make me happy or are so random that you’ll know I am sleep deprived.
And in years to come, I’d like to give my daughter something to read that isn’t The Gruffalo or, for the millionth time, The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
So here goes. Read, smile, comment, enjoy. x
