Introducing Me!


Hello there, I’m Rachel and I have been a Mummy in training since October 2012.

I found out I was pregnant with my little boy, Little Manuel in January 2012 and he came into this world mid October of the same year. Being a Mummy has been one hell of an experience so far and I wanted to start to document it, look back at how the last 2 and a half years have been and take any of you that would like to come on this parenting journey with me.

Being a parent, a Mummy especially is one of those jobs that never stops changing, never stops challenging you and never stops surprising you.

I read so many wonderful blogs about the ‘perfect Mum’ and they inspire me and make me want to do better but there are some issues that are just never addressed and I want to do that. I want all of us Mummys to stand together and recognize it is hard but also know that we are all out there for each other in this wonderful online community that we now have at our fingertips.

Other aspects to me you should probably know about are that I live in the UK, I’m a wife of 5 years to my lovely husband G who works away most weeks (more to come on that later) and I work part time as a Secondary School Librarian (get ready for some bookish posts).

So here we are, I can’t promise blogs everyday or every week on a Sunday but I will blog as much as I can and hope to take a few of you with me.

Have a wonderful day.
