Whoop whoop! I made it…I’m here…I am blogging again.

This is me right about now. A total mum thinking she is a cool kid because she built this fucking amateurish blog that is a shell of what she wanted it to be but who cares because…it’s here!

So yeah, much work to do here but it’s evolving and taking shape and I HAVE A SPACE TO BLOG NOW. Now I just have to get the toddler to let me do it because as you all know, the toddler tornadoes rule the goddamn world.  

So who am I?   I’m Rachael. My pals (that’s you) usually call me Rach. I am a 40 year old mama of 2 – a 6 year old boy (Saxon) and a 15 month old girl (the toddler tornado, Holly). Interestingly every time I have thought that sentence to myself while composing this blog in my head I have thought “mum of 3” but I’m counting my kids and there are only two so maybe the universe has a plan for me? Stay tuned.

To be honest I’m not sure if I’m ready for a third yet, or ever. This second one is nailing me to the wall. Woah. So I’m going to blog a bit about that and how some days I fantasise about my children running off and joining the circus. But only for a moment. The rest of the time I’m barely surviving but happy to keep them.

Mostly I’m just going to blog about random shit. There will be mummy stuff but I wouldn’t call it a mummy blog per se but you can if you like. Whatever works for you.

In this beautiful space there will also be health and fitness stuff because I try to walk that walk more often than not with varied success, and running stuff as one day I want to run a marathon but at the moment I’m not running more than 5km. There will be some food stuff as I’m always looking for dinner hacks and reviews when I do something or use something I think you need the lowdown on. We are talking the non sponsored, just my opinion variety. No one pays me for my opinion or gives me free product or any such fancy stuff.

Oh and most importantly there is going to be a bunch of infertility and VBAC stuff because those are two roads I’ve walked that I need to give back to.

Tne Infertility and VBAC stuff

So the plans is to create “the libraries” which is my fond name for the Infertility and VBAC files. At the moment they are pretty much empty (refer to first paragraphs about the empty shell blog) but I do plan on slowly populating them as I go. Not all of these posts will appear in my blog roll, but some will, as I figure if peeps are just following me for laughs and crap talk they probably won’t want to all of a sudden read my more serious thoughts on infertility, IVF, VBACs and whatever else. You CAN follow those categories independently which means I will notify you specifically when I post in them. Just GO HERE.

I have a fairly comprehensive ABOUT page if this has just left you wanting to know more more more. Otherwise, WELCOME. Thanks for coming to hang out in my little corner of the web.

    1. Awwwww thank you. I am honoured to call you my friend too. And I’m stoked that we are both blogging together again. You give me so much inspiration! xx

  2. Oops. My emojis have been replaced with ??? Unless it’s just the phone app playing up again. Nonetheless, message still stands, but without the questions, hahaa!

    1. haha yes I do get question marks here. Weird. Wonder why that is and if it’s something I need to do in my settings? Will have a look at that. (I’m learning so much! ha!)

      1. Hmm. I did a quick search and I think this is something to do with the encoding (should be set to utf-8 in wp-config). Might need some quiet time to get to the bottom of it!

  3. Glad you’re back!!! I know that I follow you in other corners of the world, but I’ve missed reading your blogs. I’m excited to see what you have in store for this site!!

  4. Are you only 40? I thought you were 29!!! Hope you’ve been well! It’s been a while since I last said hello. Sounds like you and the kids are doing great. Very good to hear from you, madam.
