Having procrastinated about setting up a blog for the last few months I finally decided to take the plunge and just do it. What do I have to lose, right?
I plan to use this blog as a bit of an outlet to vent my problems, struggles, triumphs and whatever else is on my mind. I’ve really enjoyed reading the thoughts of other mums and dads. I think it’s so brave to pour out such personal details of your life and post it on the internet for all to see, cry over and maybe even giggle at.
For now I plan to stay anonymous. I know this goes against the grain for most blogs but I’m just a bit shy at the moment. I want to see how things go over the next few weeks. I hope this will become a real passion of mine and that I will get to chat with lots of other mums in the process.
What I will reveal about myself is I am a mum to two lovely girls – aged two and just a few months. I live in the South East and am on maternity leave at present. I love cooking, the cinema and taking walks. I am also a big fan of binge watching whatever TV show I have become hooked on, although I don’t get much of a chance to do that these days. I can often be found with a glass of Prosecco or vino on the go and I am a total chocoholic.
I picked the name The Mummy Bubble because for one thing I am a big fan of bubbles (the boozy, not bathtub, kind), but also I feel like becoming a parent does put you in a whole new bubble. Your entire life has changed. The highlight of my week used to be a few drinks with pals or a romantic meal out with my husband. Now it’s getting out of soft play without any major tantrums. Don’t get me wrong, I love being a mum but I also find it a little trying at times! So being in The Mummy Bubble is a good thing, but I will also explore the tougher side of parenthood.
I hope you enjoy reading and please do get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
