I Am Me

I am linking up with Rachel from Three Years At Home for her post ‘I am’:

Since becoming a Mum nearly 3 years ago, I sometimes forget who I am, who I was before I became a Mum. I got made redundant at 8 weeks pregnant. I’ve gone from a Personal Assistant/Project Support Officer working up to 50 hours a week to a full time Mum working 24 hours a day!

I’m not going to lie, I feel like I’ve lost my identity a bit. When I started to write this post I was thinking, I’m just a Mum, everything else has either taken a back seat or gone. But whilst writing this post, I realised I am so much more than just a Mum.

    Thanks for joining in with this, Laura. It's been so much fun to read more about the women behind the title of 'mum'. I love loud music too. Seriously miss solo car journies to work so I can sing at the top of my lungs. But I love the smell of Deep Heat 🙂

    I like this meme. You don't like coffee? I hate rudeness too – there's a homoeopathic remedy for helping cope with it better, I believe!
