Well, where to start…..
My husband suggested I write ‘Hello my name’s Bob and I eat fishfingers’ but I’m ignoring him.
I am a happily married 30-something mother to two kids – a cheeky 6 year old girl and a rambunctious 3 year old boy. For their privacy I’ve decided to call them Darlek and Sausage, my gorgeous girl and beautiful boy respectively. Don’t ask me why, it’s a long complicated winding road of an explanation. Let’s just say it’s something to do with Dr Who and my son’s obsession with eating meat (I swear he was a lion in a former life!) My husband, on his request, is known as Horace. I have no idea why although I think it might be something to do with a frog and a computer game from donkey’s years ago.
As for me, I have a quirky sense of humour and like to look for the sparkle in the ordinary day to day slog. This, I hope, is reflected in my blogging and my so called ‘wry observations’ on life. My passions in life are my family and nature. I love nothing more than climbing a huge hill and taking in a fantastic view, with my, more often than not, reluctant family in tow.
As for blog content, the name ‘Brink of Bedlam’ and the tagline ‘Balancing Precariously on the Edge’ are very telling. This blog is probably about as chaotic as my life to be absolutely honest. Domestic goddess I am not, in fact ‘Domestic Disasteress’ would be more appropriate. I write about my life in general, the ups, the downs, the wobbly bits, the twists, turns and the getting lost bits. It’s all here and you’re very welcome to have a read and join our family on our journey as we muck up the map reading.
Ocassionally I post reviews of children’s books and toys, or services & online shops I’m particularly impressed with , every now and then I’ll do a ridiculous vlog (video blog if you’re curious) – all in all I write as the mood takes me. I dabble with cookery, and have a lot of enthusiasm and nil culinary talent, but that doesn’t stop me.
My fabulous ongoing blog sponsors are TP Toys, Muddy Puddle Clothing, Healthy Supplies, Top That Publishing, ToyJeanius and I regularly post for UKMumsTv. This gives me a chance to say thank you to them for believing in me and my blog meanderings.
I’m @Chaoskay on Twitter if you’d like to contact me about reviews, events or products or if you just want a daft conversation about the weather.
It goes without saying that the Brink of Bedlam blog comes with a virtual comfy sofa, a roaring fire, a glass of wine and a packet of chocolate biscuits that never run out. Make yourself comfortable! Always happy to make new friends!
