About Me…

I am an unmarried stepmum to a very lucky 5 year old boy, affectionately referred to as “Monster”, I’ve been in his (& my partners) life since he was 9 months old and we’ve been on quite a journey since then.

I work full time and spend the rest of my time attempting to be a 50s housewife and hopefully defy the wicked stepmother label. I love baking

I’m pretty passionate about lots of things and live in a continual process of trying new things which will obviously be my calling and become my life…. usually for at least a couple of days!


This list has been through some drastic changes in the past couple of years since flying the nest and becoming a home-renter! Honestly… Before I moved out I probably cooked once or twice a year so being responsible for my own dinner every night was a bit of a shock to the system. Never mind for my other half and step son (gluten and dairy free don’t even go there).

This is my venting and thinking space to share our story so far, what’s new, what’s annoying and hopefully, what’s good!

I’m doing my best (both here and in life) to keep a positive headspace and outlook, if I’m coming over whingey feel free to call me out on it!

To get you started, here are my posts about the journey from casual dating to unmarried stepmum:
