  • Meaning Behind My Blog Name  

Working Mums Club was in the pipeline for a while before it was started. I used to run a popular and successful blog called the Day in the Life of a Hopeless Romantic. This was blog all about dating in your mid twenties and the highs and the lows. My readers followed me on a journey  from leaving a toxic relationship of 7 years to being single, falling for my best friend, to finding Mr Nice who turned out to be not so nice, to being single (again) and being on a dating sites, to finding the love of my life. My partner kept pushing for me to write about our family adventures. Our days out reviewed, products, challenges etc. What it’s really like to work full time and have joint responsibility of his children as well as people following our journey from pregnancy to birth of our bundle of joy (we hope 2019 that this part of the blog will come).

  • My Plans & Goals 

My plans and goals are not just my plans and goals as such. They are more like life milestones  that I wish to achieve.  My ultimate goal is to get married and have children with my partner. This is something we speak about a lot and we both want to happen as soon as possible. I want us to grow our family and have more children to love and support and nurture. Nothing beats seeing the smile on a child’s face, or hearing them call you with a big grim just to tell you that they love you. (5) recently asked could me and his daddy have a baby, this was short lived after he met my cousins little puppy Ruby. He wanted a puppy instead. Unfortunately at the start of the year I miscarried at 10 weeks which left me numb and heartbroken.  I also plan  to spend more time on my blog and concentrate on writing more poetry. Ultimately, I just want to be happy and have a lifetime of love and laughter with my little family.

  • Nicknames

  • Words I Need to Share

I’m not perfect and I don’t claim to be. What I am is real, I love with everything I have. I put everyone and everything before myself. I have three people who rely on me who I would risk my life for over and over again. While I may not be the boys biological mum I raise them like my own making sure they have all they need to grow into perfect little gentlemen. I have had a lot of negative criticisms from people who don’t actually know us or haven’t seen me around the boys.  The boys do not call me mum, they have a biological mum. They understand that they have two loving homes. Two sets of families that love them unconditionally. I’m proud of myself for how far we’ve come as a family and how much of an impact I’ve had on the boys.  I don’t have to love the boys I want to and I know that they love me. If you were a fly on the wall in our home you will see that quite often they ask me for things, are cuddled up with me on the sofa, asking me to bath them and wash their hair. (5) when he goes to bed has to have cuddles with me while he holds on tight telling me he loves me. (9) asks me to help with his creative homework because together we always come up with super cool ideas. It breaks my heart when I can’t do all that they want me to do. A few weeks ago (5) cried when he got up because he wanted me to pick him up from school. He clung on tight as I left for work that morning and it broke my heart.

So there you have it i’m not this nasty person people claim I am.
