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 12, 10 and 8, and the blog is 6. 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:

After working with Netmums for many years and setting up their bloggers network, I moved to a position a little closer to home. I'm now kept busy as Digital Manager for Mumsonline.ie, the digital arm of Easy Parenting magazine, which is run by the wonderful Zahra Media Group. 

Freelance writing:
I've had various articles published in the Irish Independent over the years as well as the odd magazine piece. Some of my favourites:

My one year no beer experiment
Why I stopped washing my hair
51 thoughts every mother has about a rare night out
The lazy mother's guide to parenting
Balancing act

Social Media:
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:

We'll make a fortune

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