This Mummy Loves… is eight years old as of yesterday and I have literally just come across #Blogtober18 and loved the idea so much that I thought I’d give it a go. Firstly if like me you haven’t heard of #Blogtober before then it is basically writing a blog post everyday throughout October with prompts by Big Family Organised Chaos. Today is day 1 and the first prompt is ‘All About Me’ I’m actually really excited to join in with this as I’ve been feeling rather empty with regards to writing recently so this may just give me what I need to get my love back.
All About Me.
My name is Sonia and I have just turned 41 years old. I have three children Liam who is almost 22, Boo who is almost 12 and Bugs who is 8 years old. I live with my other half James who I’ve been with for almost 15 years now. From a very early age all I wanted to do was be a midwife and have kids. Kids won and they have been my life for the past 22 years. My biggest regret in live will be not following my midwifery dream. I know there is still time for that but I really don’t have the money or support to go into full time education.
I have been writing here at This Mummy Loves for exactly eight years, I started this blog just after Bugs was born. Although this was not my first blog. I first started blogging way way back in 2001 when Liam was 5. Blogging was totally different back then and I made the most amazing friends, who I still class as friends to this day. In 2016 I started my travel blog ‘The Places We Will Go‘ with my partner James. I love that blog and expect that one will out live this one as I think there is only so far you can go with a parenting blog… but saying that I can’t see me letting it go just yet 😉
My family is my biggest love and I am always at my happiest when surrounded by my family. I don’t see my parents or big sisters as often as I would like to and that makes me very sad. I love to travel and explore new places and right now I feel like I am desperately ready for some alone time. I love eating out at posh restaurants and generally just hoping that my other half would become a Master Chef 😉
I am currently studying to do my Maths GCSE next May, I didn’t pass it when I was at school and suddenly at the age of 41 decided it was time that I did. I hated Maths at school and didn’t put any effort in at all. But I am really loving it now and love the time I take out of being a mum to study.
I am obsessed with having nice nails so get my nails done every 2-3 weeks. It is the one thing about myself that I take great pride in. I live in jeans and hoodies at the moment and wish that I had a personal stylist to dress me every day so that I looked amazing like some women just seem to be able to. Where does one learn that?
Well I think that is enough about me today. A big hello if you are new to my blog, please say hello. I’d love to ‘meet’ you and come over and say hello to you too 🙂
