Well it seems that Mammy has quite a few new readers over the past few weeks and so it’s only polite to say Hi! Also, some of my lovely FB followers suggested that I not get lost behind the guise of only being Mammy, and so I thought it a good time to say Hi to you all.
Welcome to the madness of my life.
It might be humdrum and ordinary, but it certainly is not quiet or dull. For those of you who have been following me a while, thank you for still being here! And to those of you who have just stumbled into my pile of Smumbling, let me introduce myself.
I am Maria, a Donegal Mammy of two minions, one 6 and one 2. We live in our palace on Smumble Hill. Our palace is a messy, toy crowded bungalow with an impressive “layer of love” and windows that get washed once a year. We have cows in the field and a bare garden because Mammy could kill a plastic plant.
Mini-Me is 6, is an absolute drama queen (like her Mammy) and has provided me with some of the most wonderful and some of the most challenging moments of my life. She is Mini-Me for a reason; not only is she my double in looks, she is a walking, talking miniature of myself…probably half the reason she drives me so bananas! She’s a wee legend.
Princess is 2 and she is a Dictator of the world in Training. Hilarious and full of badness, she is not only keeping us on our toes, she is making us dance. She’s a rascal.
My husband, or The Him, is Mr Rushe Fitness and runs a gym (Jim) here in Letterkenny as well as an online training platform. He’s quite the handsome oul devil and I still like him a lot. He’s the best Daddy and not bad at the Husband part either! We have a very busy life and a very noisy house and as knackered as I am, I wouldn’t change a thing.
I’ve been writing this blog for over 3 years and have been a finalist in quite a few National Blogger awards. I’ve had loads of great opportunities and I still love that I never know what will be in my mailbox when I click open in the morning.
As well as blogging here, I am a teacher, I write stuff and I’m Director with our local musical society. I like to be busy. While I love to get Glammy Mammied, 90% of the time I am either in gym gear or PJs. I ROCK the badger’s arse look and I like to look windswept and interesting. I am very good at that.
The S-Mum Blog is my Mammy voice. I like to make people laugh. I like to show other Mammies that life is not and should not be instaperfect. I am not one to use #soblessed or #mybestlife. You’re more likely to see #wtf or #fml…
I do some collaborations with companies that I use and like and sometimes I run giveaways, but that is not the focus of my blog. It never has been. It’s about writing and sharing and starting conversations…and sometimes making Mammies smile. I also do a bit of chatting at things. I likes to chat. (No idea where Mini-Me gets it!)
I am a Gym Mammy, I love to train and I like my body to be a certain way. Not only does it make me feel better physically, if I don’t lift things and hit things, I get a bit hormental. But don’t worry, I tend to keep my gym content over on Instagranny or on the lifestyle section here.
I also like wine and gin and good food. I can eat like a starved gorilla.
So there. Boring yet busy. Ordinary yet fun. I’ll tell it as it is. I don’t accept BS and if you don’t like what I write, feel free to bugger off. If you do, like and comment and enjoy the fun.
This is Mammy and Mammy says hi. Thank you for following my Blog and I hope you enjoy xx
