About

I am a MUM IN AWE. In awe of the wonderfully awesome (and sometimes terrible) things that kids and parents can do.  I try to be more awe-inspiring than aw(e)ful, but some days we can all be both.

I love seeing the potential in my kids and trying to coax it out of them, and I’m not exactly subtle in my ways and words, but hopefully this site will give you tips, hints, and something to think about.

I write about parenting, ways to save money, also opinion pieces on family, parenting and relationship issues, and recipes. I also do reviews on books relevant to the site.

I have 2 kids, a partner who also has a child, and we are adjusting to the ways of a blended  family. It’s not easy, but it’s the best decision I ever made – for  me anyway. We live near a forest, and the sea and we’re fortunate we do.

Please feel free to comment, and discuss, and I hope the recipes I post are of great help.Contact me if you are interested in posting a piece on my site, for advertising opportunities on my blog, or for any other reason. I am also available to write opinion pieces for other sites if you like.

8 June 2010 – Awesome thing of the day – the rain, it’s washing away the grime, and giving my chilli plants some water!

14 June 2010 – had an awesome weekend! Happy kids, great weather, and my son was captain of cricket!!

July – big house move. Bigger house, bigger family, bigger issues / problems and fun.

Dec 2011 – great holiday away, sunshine, blue skies and a camel ride to boot!
