I’m Hannah, currently level 38 in the game of life, and single mum to 4 awesomely sarcastic, occasionally inappropriate sleep thieves; Joe (19), Jess (18), Emily (11) and Ruby (9).
If you’re any good at maths, you’ll have worked out that I’ve been a Mum for over half my life now, having had Joe when I was 18 (and a half). Jess came 13 months later, closely followed by me splitting from their Dad and becoming a single mum for the first time.
A few years later I met a crazy Scot who thought it would be a good idea to marry me. We had Emily 3 years later, and then Ruby came along 19 months after that.
I’m probably definitely cursed, because that relationship broke down too not long after having our second baby.
I became a single mum again in 2012, and have spent the last 8 years trying to keep the sleep thieves alive, happy, in education and off the crazy hormone-induced paths some of them were intent on going down. But that’s a whole blog post in itself.
We live in Sunny Worthing, in West Sussex, just a short walk from the beach. Its no exaggeration when I say I have a slight obsession with the beach. I’m usually down there with kids and/or the dog at least once a day every day. Whatever the weather. It’s definitely our happy place.
I started blogging around 18 months ago, but managed to completely fuck things up, and it was deleted. In it’s entirety, with no option to retrieve it. So, I’m starting again from scratch.
It will no doubt take a while to get a decent amount of content on here, but now I’ve handed the kids back to the professionals between 9am & 3pm, I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to string a series of coherent sentences together again soon.
