Hi! I’m Shannon.
I live in south-east London (nearly Kent) with my daughter “Pumpkin” (she was born in February 2014) and husband, “Daddy-man”.
I’m originally from California, but moved to Scotland in 2004 to study for a Master’s degree in Publishing. I met my husband when I was living in Scotland – he’s from south of Glasgow – and we’ve been living in London for about six years.
Why I started blogging
I created this blog to act as a record of my journey through motherhood – as well as anything else that might come up.
My hope is that I can tell a great story that my little one will want to read when she gets older and that other mums like me can enjoy reading now.
What do I write about?
- Motherhood – The blog is mostly about life as a mum. The fun, the struggles and the mess.
- My hobbies – But I’m not just a mum – I have a lot of interests too, including photography, baking, writing and travel. Since I’m a WAHM (work-at-home mum), I don’t have as much time as I’d like to do any of those things, but I’ll write about them when I can.
- Weight loss – Oh, I’m also a serial dieter. I’ve been struggling with my weight for as long as I can remember. I’m a firm believer in Slimming World, however, and I’m convinced that it will eventually get me to a weight that I’m happy with. But it will be a long journey!
