Introduction to Mrs. Mombastic

Well I'm pretty sure I'm not qualified to write blog posts. But a lot of people have been asking me recently about fitting in working out and having children, as well as eating healthily, working full time, taking time to myself (haha yes I laughed writing that one), and drinking cold cups of tea. So here I am writing down my thoughts on all areas of mummyhood (the scariest type of hood there is) INCLUDING self care! Because we do forget to love ourselves and that is such an important part of mummying!

I enjoy using the great outdoors for a lot of my workouts, mainly because my children prefer to be outside. Luckily in England we are so lucky with the weather because it hardly ever rains (yep, the stereotypical English sarcasm came into play there), but we are all suited and booted in wellies and all in ones and the children love puddle splashing. I also find that I get a greater sense of relief when I'm outside. A feeling of empowerment when working out. The open space. This is baring in mind that I live on a farm in a particularly rural area. I have never lived in a city. In fact, I can go as far as to say I've never even lived in a town. So I am about as country bumpkin as they come. I'm one of those annoying people that will hold up an entire queue of people at tube stations when on trips to London because I have literally no idea how a sodding oyster card works.

So I live with my husband, two children and my dog. Having spent most of my adult life travelling, I never imagined settling on the neighbouring farm to my mothers. And I can only imagine that my husband had never envisaged a marriage to two women aka. the mother to his children and the grandmother to his children. But he signed up to it and now he's stuck with us. We follow a fairly attachment parenting style (if you want to give it a label) and yes, it can be exhausting trying to juggle it all but I wouldn't change it for the world.

Come along for the ride!
