Hello! Welcome to my blog!
I’m Amanda and I currently live in Western Australia though this is only temporary until September when we will return to the UK. I’m rapidly approaching the big 3-0 this year 😮. I am Mummy to a cheeky 13 month old called Osh. I live with my lovely husband and our mischievous Rudozem Street Rescue Dog (RSDR).
I am a primary school teacher who has been on ‘extended’ maternity leave, as we took the opportunity to move to WA with work. I am a tad apprehensive about returning to work full time in October but am making the most of this extra time with Osh: playing outside, exploring and doing lots of messy play (which I believe to be extremely important in a child’s development).
I started this blog in March with the hope that it would prevent my brain turning to mush from having to repeatedly sing ‘The Great Old Duke of Osh (Bosh)’. I love to write and I considered blogging to be a challenge because, other than Facebook, I am (was?!) quite social media illiterate!
So, this blog is about sharing all our adventures and chaotic moments whilst trying to bring up baby. I will share lots of recipes and messy play ideas as well as travelling tales and tips -hopefully inspiring others with our journey! I will be honest and not just write about the highs of parenthood but also the lows. However, I do make a conscious effort to have a positive outlook on life so if your looking for sweary ‘I hate my life as a mum’ rants then this is the best you’ll get from me.
Anyways, I will attempt to do all this whilst carrying on with the everyday battles that is the cleaning of the mucky highchair and child and cursing whilst said child wiggles away mid, dirty, nappy change! So, if you wish, please join us as we travel through life ☺.
Amanda & Oshi x
