Mumaleary's Blog

Cheaper than therapy

What’s it all about (Alfie)


Thanks for checking out my blog. 🙂

If you’ve been snooping about here for a while you will see that I’ve been writing off and on since shortly after the birth of our second daughter in 2013.

I have had periods of writing daily, periods of not writing at all and periods of getting the balance right!

This blog- along with about a gazzilion others is about life- life as a mum, life as a woman muddling through all of the stuff that is impacting on me and mine daily so, some times that will be about;

  • Health and fitness- I am perpetually trying to find a routine that works for me, fits with my family and isn’t to do with fads; this has eluded me for the past 3.5 decades! I love the way exercise makes me feel so I don’t understand quite why this isn’t something that I always carve out time for?! Answers on a postcard please.
  • Mumming- Clearly; being a mum of two means that much of what I do, where I go and the experiences I have are shaped by my little family.
  • Wirral Life- We live on the Wirral and part of my paid work is to help further develop the visitor economy on Wirral- it is an absolutely gorgeous part of the world and I love living here so; when we find somewhere super expect to hear all about it.
  • Mental Health- I have had several experiences of depression and it is the absolute worst. Writing helps, sometimes more than face to face talking for me at least but- whatever the medium, I think that honest conversations about how we feel are so important.
  • Writing- I love writing and am over the moon to now be able to say I am a (self) published author. My first book; Time for Bed Baby is a book aimed at new mums and my hope is that it will help all parents understand the importance of looking after themselves as well as the new born.
  • Occasionally; because this is simply the way I am, you can expect a totally random post about my take on issues of the day; Brexit, Feminism,  Celebrity culture, Religion and anything else that weaves its way into my psyche!


When I began this blog way back in 2013 the online landscape was totally different- it was an absolute unknown. Since then bloggers have become a key part of how people digest news and views so I must be clear; all views and opinions on here are purely my own; My first introduction to the blog stated the following-

The purpose of this blog is quite simple really; I will obviously write a hilarious blog about how I stumble from one cooking or housewifery disaster to the next. It will quickly gain cult status for its quick wit and insightful messages and I will be bombarded by offers from advertisers, sponsors, TV execs etc.
However, should this inexplicably not happen, I will use this blog as a sort of free therapy- somewhere to rant and offload and share my journey to becoming a fully fledged ‘grown up’- the blog could be quite a long runner as I am some way off this currently.

I’ve missed the boat on the first part but the second still stands! Thanks for popping by; I hope you feel at home here.
