About Me & Disclaimer

Hi I’m Catherine and I’m originally from Wales but moved to East Sussex in 2010 to begin a new life with my now husband Jamie. We have a gorgeous, cheeky toddler called Noah who entered our lives dramatically on Christmas Eve 2016 after a 4 year battle with infertility.

I am a Disney fanatic who loves make up, fashion and chocolate and I am also a total TV/film addict. I am all about body positivity, building ourselves up and basically being happy with ourselves as we are. I write pretty honestly about life and motherhood and, as the title of my blog suggests, I am pretty far removed from the “perfect Mum” image. I am basically just your average Mum trying to figure it all out one step at a time.

Please follow my blog if you wish to see me ramble on about motherhood, mental health, infertility & life in general!
