Hello, welcome to Southern Mummy, my nature inspired UK Parenting & Lifestyle Blog!
I really appreciate you taking the time to have a nosey around my little site. This is where you can find out a little bit more about us, the family behind Southern Mummy! I’m in my Mid 30’s and Chris is a little bit closer to 40. We live on the ‘Sunshine Coast’ in Eastbourne, East Sussex. We live with our two kiddywinks, Finlay (5) and Emmeline (1) and two furry Oriental cats Sebastian and Amira!
So, this is us in a nutshell:
I began blogging in 2013. Finlay was born with severe Flat Head Syndrome. I used blogging to raise awareness of the condition and to fund raise money for corrective helmet treatment, not available on the NHS. As Finlay grew, my blog evolved into Southern Mummy. I realised I could combine my love of blogging and nature with my MSc in conservation. Where I could offer my readers insights, inspiration and activities to get children outdoors and having fun with nature. Forging a strong connection to our natural word and encouraging our future generations to grow up wanting to conserve our planet.
There is also more to me than getting muddy. I am a huge animal lover, you will probably find a few post about our two very focal Oriental cats, Sebastian and Amira. I am also an advocate for animal welfare, while I try not to preach, if there is topic I feel important than you might see a few shout outs as I try and raise awareness. Also an avid cake eater and tea drinker, I might moan occasionally about how I can’t seem to fit in my size 10’s anymore!
Life can get hectic at times, I juggle my two children with part time work, I’m currently an Office Senior Administrator. While we do try to get outside as much as possible, there are days when we don’t. While my Instagram shows the beautiful snapshots of our adventures, I am real and this is real life, it doesn’t always go to plan (this morning I was late for work as Emmie decided to poop her pants as I was just about to leave!). That’s OK. There are many indoor activities and books that can be nature inspired. If your having a REALLY bad day, that is was TV is for, don’t feel guilty!
I hope my brand as a whole reflects all this. Above all, I hope to spread the message that you don’t need to live outdoors to benefit from the wonders that nature gives us and I hope that I can inspire you with our family tales.
