Our little family – Copyright of Monsterful Mama

Name: Michelle

Location: London, UK

Wanderer: By way of Kent, UK

Likes:  milky coffee, early mornings, spring, a wild garden, muted colours, crafting and creating, video games, learning new skills, taking pictures, unicorns, mildfulness, washi-tape, brush pens, water colours, planners and bullet journals.

Dislikes: mushrooms, tea, being chunky but not funky, people who mispronounce my baby’s name, bright luminous colours, changing the bins, being called stupid, skinny people at the gym, pop music and inconsiderate vapers and smokers.

My name is Mummy or Mama, which ever my daughter decides to say first really.  I am married to an amazing man and his name is Daddy or Dada.  We have a beautiful little girl called Zosia or Zoshborg.  It’s more like Josh with a Z and without ua, just and a (Zosh – a). The amount of people that say it wrong baffles me.  We knew it might be tricky but it’s like nobody has watched an episode of Holby City before! I’m 32. I’m shorter than I’d like to be and fatter too but hey, I like food and hate exercise, so nobody to blame but myself really.   I’ve been a mum since February 2017 and I love it.

The main purpose for this blog is really just an outlet for a tired teacher who has recently become a very tired mummy and that likes to get creative.  I prefer to use brush pens, water colour paints and bullet journals as my creative outlet these days.

As a first time mummy and a relatively noobish teacher (3 years) I am absolutely dreading going back to work.  My maternity leave finishes in September and I will be going back full time.  The silver lining is that it is only for half a term as I have recently resigned from my current school (lack of part time roles available).  So, I’ve reached the proverbial fork in the road:

Continue teaching at some level?    


Try something new?

Whichever I choose will have an impact on our little family.

I hope to share the trials and tribulations that I’ll face through my journey into motherhood and beyond.
