About Us

Hello there. I'm Kim. I have been blogging since late 2012 and was previously known as Northumberland Mam! We moved from Northumberland to Scunthorpe in the summer of 2019 and started a new life so I thought I had to change the name of my blog too. It made sense.

I'm heading towards 40 years old and I'm a stay at home mam. We live in a large village just outside of Scunthorpe in North Lincolnshire.

I started to blog after stumbling across blogs hosting giveaways. Sometimes when I found a giveaway there would be some another blog post which caught my eye and I would keep going back and reading those blogs. It got to a point where I thought this blogging lark was a good idea. I could record our lives and be able to look back on it on years to come, I could rant, share my ideas and have lots of fun too.

I Love: Bon Jovi, wine, chocolate, my pj's, chinese food, Twitter, The Walking Dead, all of the Soaps, sleeping in & shopping online.

I hate. liars, being cold, people who think they're better than they are, not getting enough sleep, housework, rain and broccoli!

Becky is my eldest daughter. She's 16 and has just left Secondary school. She is a total drama queen but I wouldn't change her for the world.

She loves: Chocolate, pizza, long showers, checked shirts, science, crafts, YouTube, her laptop & tablet, Stranger Things, shopping, jeggings, reading and Panic at the Disco! 

She hates - Chicken, not being on the laptop, walking, being cold, fresh Cream, spicy food, dogs & her sister depending on what mood she's in.

Ellie is my 'Little Chicken'. She's 11 years old! Sometimes she likes to think she is a teenager just like her sister. She's totally deaf in her right ear and has selective hearing in her left one. hehehe. It doesn't bother her at all. If you met her you would never guess! She just gets on with life.

She Likes: Unicorns, sweets, making a mess, sweet chilli sauce, music, make up, baking, playing the Sims, Minecraft, YouTube, her toy Monkey, singing, Roblox, slime and Glee!

She Hates - tidying up, sleeping past 7am on a weekend, getting up for school, Becky's TV programmes, cold milk, going to bed early, wearing coats & shopping.

Stu. He's my fella. What a man he is. He goes out to work. helps with the housework, cooks, helps with the kids, gets on with my friends, kills spiders & pours my wine. 

He's the perfect man. Well nearly. He farts terribly & he stinks, pinches the duvet, snores and never lets me wear his thick cosy socks. hahaha

So that's us.....

Thank you for visiting and reading....
