Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog. I know there are thousands of us sleep deprived, over worked, under paid, frustrated, bored, neurotic, impatient, patient, kind, loving, fabulous mothers out there furiously blogging away in an effort to retain some semblance of sanity, so I appreciate you taking some time out to read mine.
I spent my 20's travelling, my 30's getting married and having babies, and I'm now hitting my 40's newly single and back in my old home town after a 5 month family adventure in Spain.
The children are now 11, 9 and 7, and the blog is 5. I'm not entirely sure which I love the most.
I'd like to think I've learned a thing or two along the paths of both life and blogging that I can pass on to others, but mostly I just enjoy dumping my thoughts somewhere. It usually frees up an extra bit of head space that can be used in any number of inane ways.
What I do:
I'm lucky enough to have my fingers in numerous pies right now.
I look after the Netmums Bloggers Network including their blogger outreach for various brands.
They also trust me to do some of their fashion galleries which is always great fun - but inevitably leaves me poorer than when I began.
I've had various articles published in the Irish Independent over the years as well as the odd magazine piece. Some of my favourites:
51 thoughts every mother has about a rare night out
The lazy mother's guide to parenting
I've worked with Disney Junior on their re-brand from Playhouse Disney. I also do some social media work for local businesses.
Kate Takes 5:
My creative baby. Which includes bits of all of the above.
Working from home for myself doesn't make me rich, but some months it might just mean the difference between a L'Oreal moisturiser and a Lidl's best one. Because, you know - I'm worth it.
And if that doesn't work out well then there's always plan B:

Kate Takes 5 is PR friendly, media savvy and open to offers (Not that kind, but thanks all the same).
