This morning I am so excited to be bringing you another blog for our Mummy Blog Series! Every week one mum will be answering two questions and a few This or That questions sharing some of their stories about motherhood!
Today it is the turn of the lovely Victoria Sully.
Victoria says "I’m 32 and a full time professional blogger and online money maker. I am passionate about healthy living and following a plant based diet. I write about this, but also love to write about money, self-employment and family lifestyle. I work from my home in Gloucestershire, South West England. I live with my husband Ben and our two children Bella who’s almost six and Reuben who’s three years old. Our current pets are a few fish and four garden chickens!"
What is your biggest mummy win to date?
Simply getting through each day and raising two incredible little humans! Every day is a manic nonstop rush from the moment we wake up to the moment of going to bed, I sometimes wonder how us mums manage to fit it all in. Getting through every day is a mummy win! From the moment I’m awake it’s a mad rush to get everyone ready for school, fed, lunches packed and as much housework completed as possible. Then after school run and nursery run it’s time to squeeze as much of my paid work into six hours as possible before picking the children up. Once home it’s another mad rush of emptying bags, checking for homework and new reading books, more housework, cooking a homemade meal, squeezing in one hour at the gym if it’s gym night, then baths and beds for the kids! Then if I have lots of work I’ll work for two more hours, if not I’ll do more housework, do some yoga or watch an episode of something with the husband! Every day feels full of so many things to do and organise, there’s barely a moment to breath. Getting to bed each evening with the kids well fed, played, homework completed and happy, whilst me and my husband have had a good productive day earning too, that’s my every day win!
What is your 'you know you are a parent when' moment.
Oh there are so many! At the moment it’s leaving the house without rubbing my concealer in! I am so often distracted by the kids whilst I’m doing something, then I forget all about what I was doing, like putting concealer under my eyes and spots, then leave the house with splodges of make up on my cheeks! I’ve done it twice recently and even went for some photos of my face for a consultation and have the splodges on my cheeks in the photos. Oops! Another would be when you can’t shower or even pee in peace. How I long for five minutes of peace and quiet just to go to the toilet without chaos ensuing downstairs or a little audience coming with me!
This or That
Pizza or Chinese – Vegan pizza! We just discovered pizza hut do vegan pizzas now so I can’t wait to try.
Cinema or a Book – With kids I’d have to say cinema! It’s impossible to find time to read a book with the kids around.
Night in or Night out – Night in!
Summer or Winter – Absolutely summer! I detest the cold and dream of relocating to a warmer climate. Just need to get hubby on board…
Beach or City – 100% beach with some luscious green countryside surrounding it. That would be ideal.
Thank you so much for sharing Victoriai! I am absolutely loved reading your answers!
