About Kate


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 10, 8 and 6, and the blog is now 4. 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.

First day at Spanish school

I left the corporate world over 6 years ago now, and these days I manage to earn a crust from a melting pot of blogging, freelance writing, social media consulting and Netmums-ing, whilst trying desperately not to get too far sucked up the butt of Twitter and Facebook. This year I was also on the founding team of Parent.ie which is taking up all that spare time I had nothing to do with...

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:

We'll make a fortune!
