To advertise on northernmum either by sponsored content, sidebar advertising or product reviews please have a look at my disclosure page.  Please note I don’t host guest content or Press releases for free and I get a little bit grumpy when asked to do so.


Who am I?

I am mother, writer and trainer.  I have three lovely children, seven year old twins and a two year old toddler.  We have had our share of health problems in the last couple of years and I use this space to share our experiences and keep my sanity.  I write a lot about type1 diabetes and Hip Dyplasia and I try whenever possible to make my readers laugh.

I find parenting my biggest challenge so far, and to avoid drowning in a bottle of gin I vent my frustrations on the written page.  However the truth be told, I adore my children, my manic working life and look forward to waxing lyrical about my life and family for many years to come.
