January Chat with a Mum: Katie of Hurrah for Gin

It’s 2014!  Hope everyone had a lovely New Year’s Eve and not nursing a terrible hang-over.  If you are, another mug of coffee might just do the trick.  I can’t believe Chat with Mums is now a year old.  I started this little section featuring friends I’ve known for ages, before inviting other mums who blogs and then eventually dads too.

Thank you to all the past mums and dads who have been featured on Chat with Mums/Dads.  You guys are the best!

Anyway, since it is the New Year,  I’m starting it with a bang and featuring one of my most favourite people/bloggers on the wide world web.  Her name is Katie of the must-read Hurrah for Gin blog.  Her blog posts are both fun and funny and she also has the most adorable little boys!  She has wit and spunk and is a very pretty mummy too.  Read on to find more about her:

Tell us something about yourself and your little ones (age & sex)

I’m a 33 year old freelance digital marketeer and community manager with two ‘lively’ boys. F is 3 and S is 10 months. I started blogging in part to document memories but mostly to experience blogging from behind the scenes!

What was your children’s birth story like?

The first was long and horrendous, I ended up having an epidural along with an assisted delivery and was stuck in hospital for 3 nights. I was not looking forward to my second labour but it was much, much better. My waters went in Sainsbury’s local and he was in my arms 3 hours later!

What you wish you knew about being a mother, before becoming one? 

That all babies are different and no person or book can really give you the answers. Unfortunately you just have to learn it all the hard way!

 How do you manage your “me-time”? 

This is a hard one, I think it’s so important but I do struggle. One of the things I have done lately is start a Saturday morning art class, I really enjoy focusing my mind of something creative and totally separate from being a mum. I come home feeling like I have just visited a spa

Do you have a favourite anecdote of your little one?

Daddy:  You’re full of beans today!

Little F: No I’m not full of beans I’m full of chicken nuggets. I don’t like beans, I like grapes!

 What is it about Motherhood you absolutely love about? 

As hard and trying as it is, my sons never fail to put a smile on my face or crack me up with laughter every day.

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
