Here is the story of my life in approximately 250 words….. or so. Don’t actually count them and we’ll all be none the wiser!!!
I was born and raised in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, to an Australian mum and an English dad. We were a middle class, working family that longed to live out the ‘Own your own home’ dream.
Just before I turned 8yrs old, my baby brother arrived, much to my disgust, as I had ordered a sister!!!
I spent many years babysitting him while mum and dad worked and although he often drove me batty, I enjoyed ‘mumming’ him. Today, I can not be any prouder of his efforts and achievements, including my beautiful niece!!!
I went through primary school and high school being bullied and picked on for my weight, a battle that I still deal with today.
I completed a diploma of Music Business Management but have never had the opportunity to use it.
I have worked in supermarkets and childcare in the past but can’t wait to try something new in the future.
After celebrating my 21st birthday in Melbourne, I decided to follow my mum and dad to the country for a change of pace and to buy an investment property.
12 years later I am still living in my ‘investment’ property, that has since expanded in size, with the arrival of my 6 gorgeous kiddies to my husband Brian.
And for those of you cheeky enough to ask, YES!!!! WE DO OWN A BLOODY TELEVISION!!!!
Back in 2005 my Mum suffered a stroke and in 2009 we lost my Dad to cancer. Both life changing events and both help make up who I am today.
I get super bored being stuck at home and love to redecorate my house every few months, interior design keeps my creativity at bay while I do my best at being a SAHM.
Most recently I have found a passion for crotchet, walking and blogging, which have all helped immensely while trying to deal with my post natal depression.
And that’s pretty much my life up until today.
