Mama OWL Blog: About Me

About Me

My name is Julie and I am a thirty-something mum from the West Country. I have five gorgeous kids (A, J, L, H & E) and a husband, The Mister, as well as three gorgeous dogs - Florence the Chorkie, Joseph the Miniature Dachshund, and Margot the Dachshund.

You can read about our family in our latest update (26.09.20). I took a three year break from the blog when I started a new job and now I feel like it is time to return.

Think you have seen my face before? You might have... In February 2013 L and I were featured in this article in The Guardian newspaper highlighting the issue of illegal exclusions of disabled children from schools.

We lead an average life - school, housework, errands... We grab every opportunity we can to do things together as a family because our time can be limited by the daily grind, and so we want to make every minute count.

Parenting to us isn't a chore, or just an obligation, it's a pleasure. The sun rises and sets on our children and we want to give them the best childhood we can. We don't have unlimited cash to spend on the kids, but in our opinion the best thing to spend on kids is time and quite frankly, there is nothing else I would rather do than be in the kitchen up to my elbows in cake mixture, or laying on the sofa under a pile of blankets watching movies and stuffing our faces with popcorn. Some days things are great, and some days things are shit. But we roll with the punches and see where the day takes us.

This blog is primarily somewhere for me to share thoughts, ideas, recipes, reviews, activities & pictures of what we spend our time doing, and sometimes as a place to vent my thoughts, feelings & frustrations at the joy and pain of raising a child with Autism (that would be the magnificent L) and the general day-to-day chaos that is our life. So welcome to our world. Think of it like a curly wurly... Sweet, but with a twist. Enjoy!
