Five mums that I think are awesome! #MothersDay

Happy mother's day to all you mum's, step mum's, mother figure's, grandmothers and those who are as good as mums out there! I hope you all have an amazing day! I know the Coronavirus is probably putting a downer on the day and stopping a lot of you's seeing your mums and I just want to send you a big hug.

I actually wrote this blog post a couple of days ago and I hope as this goes live I am having a lie in which of course will be followed by breakfast in bed, being lazy and being waited on hand & foot by my girls. hehehe

I thought I would write a blog post sharing 5 mums which I admire and think are pretty awesome. So here we go, in no particular order:

Anne from Raisie Bay.

Anne has 5 children, 2 older children that she doesn't blog about and the 3 younger one's which she does. I have followed Anne's blog for years, way before I even classed myself as a blogger. Over the years I have seen her life change dramatically after having some major health problems and developing Stiff Person Syndrome. I have seen her having bad days but she is still one of the most positive people I know! I have so much respect for this woman parenting despite some days not feeling that great. She is an amazing mother.

Jayne is the most thoughtful and sweet person that I know. She's mum to 2 gorgeous boys and she's just a little bit crazy but all of the good kind. hehehe. She dotes on her boys and they are just the sweetest. Jayne is am amazing friend. One of those who will be there for life even if you don't speak to them for a few weeks. I love her to bits!

The strength Louise has is something else. She is mum to 3. Thomas, Sophie and Jessica who sadly passed away two years ago in April. I know Louise will say she's not strong and I suppose she carries on because she has to but she has dealt with everything over the last couple of years in such a dignified, inspirational way and writes about Jessica so beautifully. She is a wonderful mother and has the biggest heart.

Katy from Katy Kicker.

This woman is a machine. She gets stuff done and makes me want to makes lists, earn money and gets stuff done too. You can find me every evening before I go to sleep watching Instagram and she is one of the people I watch every night. Katy is honest and up front in the best sort of way. There is no bull with her and she shares her life, the good and the bad. She is real and such a genuine person! She is a fab mum to her daughter and their relationship really makes me smile.


My dad's partner. She's not my mother but is a mother to her son's and is as good as mother to me. My mother left my dad for a man she met on the internet when Becky was less than a year old, I didn't see her again and she died a few years ago. Sarah has been in my dad's life for about 7 years. (I'm totally guessing it could be longer). She is there as a mother figure to me without trying to take the place of a mother but she is that mother figure I needed. If I introduce her to anyone I just say she's my stepmother to save from explaining. She is simply amazing. 

Happy Mother's Day!
