I am a mum, a wife, a daughter, a sister and a friend. I am also a recently self-employed gardener. This blog is about me trying to find my way through the complexity of life as a relatively new mum who has started her new career as a self-employed gardener.
Having spent a while contemplating what to enter on this page I finally realised why I was finding it so difficult. There I was trying to come up with something clever to say, something deep and meaningful and maybe even philosophical when it hit me; that’s just not me. Underneath the mum and wife I am just me and put simply, what you see is what you get. A close friend of mine once called me brash and where some might have taken offence to this, I simply smiled and nodded. She was right! I have very strong opinions, especially on topics that I am passionate about; I say what I think and I’m not known for sugar coating things. This can sometimes lead me into problems and perhaps for someone like me, writing a blog may not stand me in good stead. It’s not the first time since the Little One was born that I think I may have lost the plot – my every thought saved electronically for all of eternity. However, I’ve decided that it’s the best way for me to make sense of my new life and when the Little One is older she may like to know what her brash and opinionated mum had to say in the early days of her life (and more) – warts and all!
