My name is Charlie and I am a mummy to Lily, partner to Matthew and part-time blogger on Mummy’s Gone Mad.
I am originally from a small seaside town called Scarborough in North Yorkshire, but I have lived in Rochdale (near Manchester) for around 15 years and consider myself a true Mancunian.
I started Mummy’s Gone Mad during my pregnancy with Lily, I experienced a pretty rough pregnancy and when I reached month 6, I was finding it hard to cope. I was worried I was driving Matthew, my mother and best friend crazy with my constant moaning and crying so I decided to start a blog to help me vent my anger, emotions and concerns about the future.
I never thought anyone would ever read it but after just a few weeks I started receiving messages off other expectant mothers who were feeling exactly like I was! Mummy’s Gone Mad became an escape from it all where I could meet and chat with friends in a similar situation.
After Lily was born, I finally understood what the point was and discovered that the pain and discomfort was all worth it. Lily was our little miracle but I must admit it took me a while to get used to it all and adapt to motherhood.
Mummy’s Gone Mad is a fantastic place for mum’s to come together, share their experiences, vent about their days and share their tips and tricks on how to be a better parent, how to clean pen off your white walls and how to make the most of every moment.
Mummy’s Gone Mad has grown into an incredible community and I love to hear from my readers, especially those who find themselves in a similar situation.
