Hiya! Thanks for popping by my family, lifestyle and photo blog – The Mum From Brum. I’m Becki, a 30 something year old Mum to X, and wife to fellow 30 something Hubby. We live in our Work In Progress house in Northampton, but I’m a Brummie girl at heart!
A few months into being a Mum, it suddenly struck me that my brain was slowly turning to mush (I always imagine it looked a bit like pink Angel Delight…) and I needed to do something about it!
I’d always enjoyed writing, although in the past I’d always struggled for inspiration – but now I was being fed new adventures and experiences every day thanks to my son, X.
So The Mum From Brum was born.
I’m settling into my 30s now, and I’m still getting my head around my baby growing up much faster than I anticipated. I love documenting our days, or our Adventures and discussing our experience of issues surrounding motherhood – like my piece on Surviving Breastfeeding Week which was shared all across the globe in 2015, and my personal experience of Post Natal Care in the UK – as well as reviewing things we love!
And every so often I let the toddler loose on the keyboard for his very own Toddler Blog, where he discusses the ins and outs, and ups and downs of life as a kid!
My hobbies include Family History Research (nerd alert, I know… but it’s fascinating), nurturing my Twitter Obsession, and in my very infrequent spare time I write and study using MOOCs like FutureLearn and SkillShare.
I also reignited my love of theatre in 2017 by joining my local Am Dram group, and starting my own arts website –
Thanks again for stopping by 🙂 Drop me a message and say hi 🙂
