A Bit About Me
Hi, I’m Carly. If you’re here you are looking to find out a bit more about me, the mom behind the blog. I am a mom of two little girls. The eldest is nine years old and the youngest is seven years old. I’m also a step-mum to a teen. I am a wife, and a Stay At Home Mom.
We have moved around quite a lot, but after moving back to the UK in mid-2018 we have settled down as a family of five, making Yorkshire our home. Does that make me a Yorkshire Blogger? Maybe.
What Do I Do All Day?
When people find out I’m a Stay At Home Mom, they are often curious about me and always ask me, “What do you do all day?”
I am thankful that we can afford for me to do this for now, but every now and then I tend to go a little crazy. Blogging has been a great way for me to use my creativity and my love for the English language, as well as to have something that is just mine. Becoming a parenting and family travel blogger has quite literally saved my sanity. It has given me something to do that exercises my mind and is a creative outlet.
What Else About Me
Aside from being a stay-at-home mum and a blogger I am also a freelance writer, copy-editor, proofreader, social media community manager and social media coach for young start-up entrepreneurs and creatives. Please get in touch if you want to work with me.
In January 2021 I took the leap to go back to investing in myself by registering to do my Masters degree in Digital Marketing and Data Analytics. I’m studying at York St John University and so far I absolutely love it.
I Am Who I Am
Whilst I can be a bit of an introvert when at home, those who get to know me will find that my home is loud, crazy, and never exactly tidy. I tend to shout and scream as much as the girls do – #badmom, I know! My favourite TV shows are Friends, Grey’s Anatomy and The Big Bang Theory. After the girls are in bed, and when I’m not busy blogging I can usually be found watching one of these with a glass of wine in hand.
I absolutely love travelling and am always looking for the next road trip or adventure to experience with my husband and two little girls, now three.
That’s enough about me. Basically, I am not a perfect wife or mother but I will never stop trying to be better for them.
