This blog has been a long time coming and spur of the moment all at the same time. I’ve had the site semi set up for a while with the intention of doing something with it while actually doing nothing. So on a whim and with some words of inspiration from a friend “stop thinking about it and get on with it” I rushed home from a mum-date at Costa and set up the blog.
Hmm so what to write.
I suppose I should start with a bit about me. I’m a full time mum, part time Social Worker (currently on mat leave) and small business owner at Little Magpies. I have two boys Jesse (almost 3 years) and Jonah (3 months). I’m originally a Lancashire Lass but moved away when I was 18 and have been happily settled in Yorkshire for 11 years. I love Leeds and I can’t imagine living anywhere else.
I got the travel bug at age 21 when my then boyfriend (now husband) and I went to China for a few months. We’ve since travelled all over the world together and have many more places on our bucket list. Since having our first child we have a new focus for our trips and have enjoyed exploring a little closer to home in Europe and the UK.
So……..about the blog. This isn’t a parenting blog. I’m not going to be giving any advice about being a mum or advice about anything really because quite honestly i’m winging it myself! However, if anyone wants to advise me how to get my kids to sleep through the night and eat green veg then please go ahead! What I would like to share is cool stuff I find that makes life easier, fun or is just a well deserved mum-treat. I’ll be writing about places I go with the kids, trips away, days out, fun stuff to do with little people. As a small business owner I’d like to encourage other mums starting up or running businesses around their kids so I’ll be sharing anything I have found useful.
I think that’s enough for now. I’ve run out of concentration (baby brain) and a cup of tea beckons. Well I am technically on maternity leave after all……..
