Happy 1st Birthday Mummy Loves!!!


So Mummy Loves is a year old today!!! Happy First Birthday Mummy Loves!!!

It’s been a brilliant first year on the blog and I have had the support of some fabulous people and companies! I have been blogging since 2001 when I started my own little blog called Alive & Bloggin’ which was online for 4 years!! Blogging was a lot different back then but it was still such an awesome community and I made so many friends from it; alot of whom I am still in contact with now! Mummy Loves is a totally different experience to what Alive & Bloggin’ was but the community is still there… bigger and better in fact!!

Blogging has given me some fab opportunities this year, some that I have had to turn down with much heartbreak 🙁 (those of you who know me will know what I’m talking about lol) but I’m looking forward to Mummy Loves second year and what life has in store for me :O)

The last year has had many ups and many more downs!


I have taken control of my life and lost 3.5 stone and also started running and ran the Race for Life this July! I never ever imagined that I could be a runner! BUT I LOVE it now and will go at any given opportunity!

The LOW!

James was made redundant in December 2010 but thankfully found a new job which he started in January 2011. This meant that we would have to put our house on the market and for my teenage son to decide that he was going to go and live with his Dad 🙁

I feel better than I have ever felt in my life at the moment and despite everything that has happened recently… I am happy and content with who I am and what I’ve got!

A big big thank you for you all who keep coming back and reading, commenting and tweeting with me! Please say Hi today – especially you lurkers ;O)

PS – If you haven’t entered any of my Big Birthday Bash comps yet – you still have until 6pm to do so! Good luck! Winners will be announced at 8pm today xxx
