Hi there, I’m Sam and would like to consider myself as a normal everyday mum and at this point in time still have thin lips and no tits. I have two absolutely crazy kids; Emmie who is 11 years old and about to embark on her journey through high school, (god help us all), and Ernie who has been 7 years of utter mayhem.
I used to be a dance teacher and fitness instructor until I closed that chapter of my life to concentrate on being a mum and bring some normality to our family life, spending more evenings and weekends together, (which I don’t regret at all….honestly). I am now studying for a degree in Early Years alongside working with SEN children at a local school. I have grown to be extremely passionate about wellbeing and mental health, especially within the youngest members of society. I hope to bring some of that passion to this blog alongside the rest of the crazy stuff I’ll probably bring along too!
The one thing I hate is silence and if there’s ever an awkward silence that is just the worst! I always go in to conversations with the best intentions to not take over, talk too much or be stupid, but always come out, head in hands thinking how I achieved absolutely none of that. Some people told me I should write a blog, others said I should be on the stage. If I had big enough balls I’d do stand-up and talk the knackers off audiences instead of my other half, but I’m not so instead I will continue to embarrass my eldest with my TikTok videos and get my performance fix that way!
As a kid I was always good at drama in school and loved performing, especially if it meant making people laugh. I honestly think comedy is the way to a healthy body. When you laugh you feel so good (apart from when your tummy hurts or your jaw aches from laughing too much!) What I have realised, at 35 years old, with thin lips and no tits, is that life is real and sometimes it’s a bit shit. Yet even in the darkest of situations if you don’t laugh you will cry. Humour always helps to heal the soul when it has been damaged and I always love to try and make people laugh. With this blog I hope to evoke some smiles, a bit of laughter and some chatter when there’s silence.
So put the kettle on, grab a glass of wine or prep a G&T and lets chat and smile together…
