Kids’ Bedroom Wall Ideas

It’s not fun for us mums when our little munchkins are old enough to sleep in their own bedroom! I for one loved that my son was just a peep away if I needed to check on him.. But when he was a year old we had to make the transition, he was more comfortable sleeping alone. Ah well, it had to happen eventually! Continue reading “Kids’ Bedroom Wall Ideas”

About Me

The Woman Behind The Blog

Firstly, I’m a sucker for an organised space, checklists, schedules, routines and anything DIY. I will look in a drawer and instantly find a way to organise it, or at the very least, prettify it! Then, I will open the drawer every chance I get just to admire it’s organised glory (I’m not the only one who does this am I??). I love having my days planned out, or else I’ll just be all over the place, not sure what to do next. And DIY.. My oh my, so many random items fall victim of a DIY project!

I’m a perfectionist, that’s for sure. I also tend to procrastinate (which is where schedules come in!). But apart from being these things, I’m first and foremost a mummy of a gorgeous little boy!

They say life changes when you have kids. Boy are they right! Life becomes so much more beautiful, and hectic, and chaotic..

I wouldn’t change it for anything in the world! My family is the most important thing to me, and I’m always striving to keep my two guys happy.

I’m a stay at home mum, and an aspiring photographer. I love taking care of my home and my family, and I also adore photography. Apart from being a mummy (/nurse/teacher/confidant am I right?), I also write on this blog full time, and I’m working towards opening a photo studio (fingers crossed!)

The Mummy Life is all about, well, the mummy life! I talk about

  • Health & Fitness – Cos with all the running around, we need to remember to stay fit and healthy! (Get started here!)
  • Kids & Parenting – From getting pregnant to activities you can do with your kids (Get started here!)
  • Organisation – To keep your house (and your brain!) in order (Get started here!)
  • DIY – Anyone up for saving some money, and have fun doing it? (Get started here!)

Above all, I want to help every mum feel successful and proud in every effort we are doing to raise our little ones. We are all doing a perfect job, in our own unique way!

Let’s face it, we all face struggles here and there when it comes to parenting. Whether it’s getting a fussy eater to eat their vegetables, trying to discipline our children in a firm yet gentle manner, getting everything done when you feel like the day is just too short, keeping a budget for your family income, or just taking care of yourself, that’s where The Mummy Life comes in. Nothing about being a mum is predictable, but at least we can be prepared!

I want this to be a place where you, as a mum, can find comfort, and more importantly, answers!
