All About Me

#Blogtober18 All About Me


Mummy says… I have had a strange few months, it has been a very busy, good year but my blogging mojo had slipped a little. I have come across the Blogtober 18 Challenge with Big Family Organised Chaos where you post every day with a daily prompt. It is just what I need to get back to this, and the first prompt is ‘All About Me’….

All About Me

Now about my family:

  1. MiMi 22, has just moved into a new house in Bristol with four girlfriends and has just started a new job as a content executive with an exciting digital marketing company. Her boyfriend, J is starring in Touching the Void at The Bristol Old Vic.
  2. Lea 18, moved to Tottenham, London two weeks ago to start Uni. She is studying Creative Musicianship in Vocals. She is struggling with her mental health, namely anxiety and adjusting to being away and living in London. She will get there, and is loving the course itself.
  3. Luke 16, has just started Creative Media in college and is really enjoying it. He seems happy and settled.
  4. Pickle started Year 1 on 4 September and despite not being keen on school generally, is enjoying it. He has even started breakfast club three mornings a week. He has had a couple of minor issues with older boys, but I am keeping a close eye on it.
