During October I am taking part in #Blogtober18, where I write a blog post everyday for the whole month. Mandi over at Big Family Organised Chaos is hosting a linky each day where she also gives a prompt for us to write about. Today’s prompt is ‘never doing that again’ but I haven’t really done anything that I don’t think I would do again. I’ve made mistakes but I don’t think I’d be the same person if I hadn’t. So I’m going to talk about something that I’m never doing again with a bit of sadness really and that is I’m never having anymore babies. Read more
During October I am taking part in #Blogtober18, where I write a blog post everyday for the whole month. Mandi over at Big Family Organised Chaos is hosting a linky each day where she also gives a prompt for us to write about. Today’s prompt is ‘kickass girls you adore’ for #internationaldayofthegirl.
Girls are awesome! Every single one of you! I have upmost respect for all of you… but today there is only one girl that I really want to talk about. The most kickass girl of all… My Boo! Read more
Today’s prompt for #Blogtober18 is Forest Creatures but seeing as it is #NationalBadgerDay I’m just going to be focusing on my love for the badger. For the past 15 years the badger has been a huge part of my life because that is what I call my other half. He is my grumpy badger… I think that name came about after his love for the ‘badger, badger’ video that was going about at the time. He thought it was brilliant… I started calling him Badger which funnily enough has become more appropriate as he gets older as he has grey patches in his beard.
Day 5’s prompt for #Blogtober18 is education. I could talk about how stressed my oldest is now he is doing his third year of uni, or how the younger two are getting on or how I appreciate their amazing teachers but today I thought I’d talk about me and my education or lack of it… Read more
Today’s prompt for Blogtober is Ditty as it is #Nationalpoetryday. I’ve been sat here for a good half an hour and nothing is coming to me at all so I thought I would share the poem that my Boo wrote for my birthday this year. It was a totally unexpected surprise when she handed me this big piece of card with a poem on and lots of lovely doodles. Read more
Today’s prompt for #Blogtober18 is couples and seeing as today is #nationalboyfriendday I thought I’d write about my man… James. We have been together for almost 15 years and have two amazing kids. We’ve had some wonderful times together and some not so wonderful but at the end of the day I know that he is there, always willing to give me a huge hug and to try and make me feel wonderful.

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.

Sally from Who’s the Mummy tagged me in her random blogger Q&A yesterday. She’s celebrating her blog being ten years old this year and This Mummy Loves… will be eight years old soon! So I thought I’d get answering these so you can find out a bit more about me. I don’t talk about myself too much on the blog or ever really so you might find something out that you didn’t already know 😉 Read more
