About Me

Hi I’m Mel and here is all you need to know about me and what inspired my blog.

I used to drive an MX5 and holiday at all-inclusive resorts in beautiful places.  I now drive a Volvo estate and tow a caravan around the UK.

I had a season ticket at Liverpool Football Club.  Now I have a TV subscription to Sky Sports and a season ticket to the Zoo.

I took pride in my flat stomach and healthy bank balance.  The less said about now the better.

I spent a lot of energy on trying to climb the career ladder.  The only ladders you will find me on nowadays are the decorating kind.

Today I am in a much better place.  I am a 40 something mummy who has embraced motherhood.  And I have my little cheeky monkey to thank for that.  I wouldn’t change what I have for the world.


The serious bit

My name is Mel – otherwise known as Harry’s Honest Mummy.  I am a Mum to a whirlwind and a Step-Mum to an amazing 20+ year old who accepted me in to her life at the age of 11.  I am married to the most cynical, dismissive man who I am convinced had his empathy nexiumreviews.com/cheap-nexium/ gene removed at birth.  Yet he is hilarious and we balance each other nicely.  We must do as we have been together 12 years.

I started the blog because I suffer with epilepsy.  I was diagnosed with simple partial epilepsy in my 30’s.  It affects my short term memory.  There are places I have been on holiday, friends I have had, events I have attended and restaurants I have eaten at that I just can’t recall.  Most of the time I just nod and say that I do remember as I know that is easier than telling the truth.  Therefore once I had Harry I was desperate not to forget anything.  I want to look back and read about the first time he spoke, the first time he rode a bike, his first day at school.  As he grows up I want to share those memories with him.  Ultimately I also need material to dish up on him at his 18th birthday party!

I hope you enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy writing it.

This is me and this is my inspiration for this blog.
