Hi there, my name is Laura, I live in a small town in Northamptonshire and I’m a single mum to 2 kids, a 14 year old son and 9 year old daughter and we have a very strange cat called Belly (full name Bella Pixie Mittens..and yes it was me that picked the name!) she is an outdoor cat and very rarely comes into the house even though I will leave the back door open for hours trying to entice her in, she just sits on the doorstep..strange!!

I previously had a blog¬†which detailed my life until a few years ago and I’ve been terrible about keeping up with it.

However, I am keen to document my new life, still as a single parent but now in a new relationship (2.5 years and counting) we haven’t moved in with each other yet but he is a huge part of mine and my children’s lives.


My son has ASD, he is in mainstream school and very independent but he still struggles with sensory issues, social skills and the odd meltdown. He loves his IPad and Playstation 4, anything Minecraft and absolutely adores Warhammer.


My daughter is very arty and can often be seen covered in paint or felt tip, showing me her latest art or craft, with her curly hair slightly all over the place.

I am a working mum, I am an Administrator for our local team of Community Nurses, I love my job and I adore my nurses, I can honestly say I have never worked with such a hard working, lovely team. I’ve been working for them for nearly 4 years and am currently studying for my NVQ Level 3 in Business Administration.
