I’m Going to Blog On 2013 – Introduction

Hi, I’m Bex, mid 20’s (feel like mid 40s) from Leyland, Lancashire.

This is me, yes I know, ugly mugshot but I’m terrible with having my photo taken. I’m usually the one stood behind the camera taking the pictures, not having my picture taken and certainly not taking mugshots of myself


These are my 2 darling babies, Lewis and Leah. These two are slowly turning into posers, love having their photo’s taken.

And my amazing husband, Sam.

I am new to the world of blogging, I did make an attempt at starting blogging 2 years ago but failed miserably but I’ve now returned with a new blog and a new outlook. I’m really enjoying my experiences and I’ve been incredibly welcomed into the Blog’s Up North group.

I am a stay at home mum, currently living in Lancashire but shall soon be returning to our Midland’s life in Telford but will still keep in close contact with Blog’s Up North.

I am really looking forward to my first bloggers event and meeting lots of new people that I talk to frequently on Twitter. Please be gentle with me!!

    @mammasaurus And you too hun. I’ve sorted my outfit, but only if the weather is nice as its a long maxi dress which isnt child friendly whatsoever. If the weather is rubbish i’ll be in a boring outfit. I’m really looking forward to learning so much about blogging. I have my pen and pad at the ready!! x

    It will be lovely to meet you. I always fret about being to overweight / wearing boring clothes / saying the wrong thing at these events but guaranteed within 10 minutes all those worries are forgotten and I’m off nattering about blogging with other people who love it and it’s alllll good!

    @Mummy of two Thank you hun. I’m really not a camera person, I’m also not a make up person although I have lined up my make up for MOSI (odd yes I know). I hate full body photo’s, I’m overweight and flabby and I’m so concious of it. It makes me realise just how much weight i’ve put on! Look forward to meeting you too!! x

    10th July 2013 at 8:36 pm

    You children are so cute! I hate having my photo taken too unless I have so much make up on I don’t look normal and I am posing with things covering all the flabby bits! Look forward to meeting you πŸ™‚
