The Sunshine Blogger Award

There’s a few blogging awards, challenges and Q&A going around at the moment and I’m delighted to be nominated for another. Thanks Lil Jem and Baby E   and The Imagine Forest Blog  for the nomination for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Thank you to both as I love their blogs! As Lil Jem nominated me first, I’m going to answer her questions, but I’m going to pay it forward with the Imagine Forest and use her questions for my nominees.

If you want to know three weird facts about me then this is a post you won’t want to miss this. https://mummascribbles.com/interviews/mummascribbles-meets-welsh-mum-writing/

Blog, Brew & Biscuits – The Lupie Mummy and me talk blogging, writing, motherhood and more …

Ever wonder why I blog? I talk about this and more today over with The Lupie Mummy on her blog. Go check it out and have a rummage around her site while you’re there. Having chronic illness in my family, I find her work about living with Lupus fascinating and it also gives me an insight into how those close to me must feel – a welcome and sometimes needed reminder.

Another Leibster Award!

I’m delighted to have been nominated for another Leibster Award – this is the second for Welsh Mum Writing  since I launched my blog a few months ago so I’m absolutely delighted that people are getting to know my name. I could just go “poo, poo, I’ve already participated” but in the interests of paying it forward to some other bloggers who might need a boost, I’m going to do this one again. This time, there’ll be new questions and new invitees. The Leibster is an opportunity to discover new bloggers by nominating them to answer some questions about themselves.

I’m a geriatric mother I was forty when I became pregnant with our two year old, Rory, and forty one when he was born.  Why they have to label you as Geriatric when you get to your mid-thirties is beyond me. There’s lots of us out there. If you’re one too. You’re not alone. We’re growing in numbers. On a good day, when I’ve slept I’d still pass for forty. When he’s teething, I’d pass for about a hundred and six. 2. I’m an introvert I’m one of those unusual INFJ personality types . I need ‘on my own time’ to prevent burnout – not easy when you have a toddler climbing up your leg. I know I’m not…
