Hey!

I am a mum of two wild humans, who for the purpose of this blog I will refer to as ‘Ravey’ and ‘Roo’.

They were 3 and 1 when I first started this blog in early 2020.

 

My partner and I have been together since 2008 and we live in South East London.

 

Before being a parent, I worked in child and adolescent mental health inpatient services as a nurse for over a decade.

 

I love colourful things and am very fickle when it comes to my hair, I am constantly dyeing it different colours.

I am quite chatty and loud and give off an air of being very extroverted although I am secretly quite a shy and anxious person too.

 

I enjoy reading and I like to doodle and make stuff that I often fail to complete (I’ve been making a rag rug forever) and like being outdoors, except when its cold and wet and then the sofa is my place. 

 

I’ve thought about writing a ‘mum blog’ for a while, as a way of dipping my feet back into writing, something I loved doing in my teens and early 20s.

Since taking a career break and spending more time with the kids it is a way to process and share some of the chaos that is daily life with children, in hope that others share my experiences and enjoy the laughs. 

 

Being a parent is awesome, no doubt about it, but its also pretty hardcore and for all the great moments there are others when you seriously nearly lose your shit.

This blog is a way to celebrate the highs and lows of parenthood, talk about the hard stuff and have a laugh.

Here you’ll find all kinds of posts, some funny ones about the general tomfoolery of kids and some cover more serious topics, such as maternal mental health, pregnancy loss and discussions around feminism and motherhood.

 

Welcome to Mummageddon, one mums battle with the magic and mayhem of parenthood, desperately trying to survive her own judgement!
