More sunlight

No sooner had I written about sunlight, one of my fav mummy bloggers A Mother Life sent me some sunshine of the virtual kind that warmed my heart just as much.

As you all know, Latte Mum has been quite a journey for me already. I'm writing because it helps me make sense of what's in my heart and head, and it's as much a little love affair as it is a necessity. Still, it's always encouraging to get a pat on the back and I was touched that NYC blogger A Mother Life sent me this Sunshine Blogger Award.

Sunshine Blogger Award

I'm sure there's a few of these sorts of awards going around, but it's a first for me and a good excuse to share some more snippets about myself and give a nod to some of the blogs I'm obsessed with.

What you might not know about me...
  1. I come from a household of women, with 4 sisters and no brothers
  2. I have a son, 4 nephews and just 1 niece - so the balance of power has shifted!
  3. I couldn't live without spaghetti bolognese
  4. My favourite city in the world is Queenstown, New Zealand
  5. Much to the amusement of my friends, I have an irrational fear of dolphins (long story - will tell it to you sometime)
  6. Despite being a colourful person, I have too much black in my wardrobe
  7. My house is usually very organised, but I feel those days are numbered
  8. I think I have a kind, nurturing, caring soul
  9. In the 10 years I've been with my husband he has never cleaned the bathroom (disgraceful I know, but he makes up for it by doing the ironing)
  10. I have about 10 coffee cards in my wallet (perhaps not that surprising)
I would like to pass on the Sunshine Blogger award to the mummy bloggers I've been most obsessed with this week - thank you for inspiring me everyday ladies:
noideamum - funny, cute, heartwarming, relatable
Seven Cherubs - always so inspirational and a wonderful mummy community
Be A Fun Mum - so many great ideas
Green Tea & Toast - beautiful words and photos to match
Metropolitan Mum - one of most stylish new mums ever
(Not) Just a Mummy - best beauty advice for yummy mummys
Matilda's Mum - an Aussie mum's journey
Mummy to Twins - relevant advice, ideas and a mum's opinion on current news

Ladies, I've been told the rules for accepting this award is:
  • Include award logo in blog post and thank the blogger who gave it to you & include link back
  • Answer 10 questions about yourself or list 10 facts about you
  • Nominate approximately 10 bloggers for the award and contact them to inform them

Thank you x



  1. Aww that's too sweet, thank you xoxo I was happy to see you get the award, I love reading your posts.

    1. P.s. Really want to hear the dolphin story!

  2. Thanks so much lovely! I am looking forward to doing my post! Hope you are really well!
    P.s. I totally get tghe dolphin thing. I have claimed (many) times to my husband that they are the silent killers of the sea, leaving sharks to take the rap for everything. Sneaky critter =) Xx

    1. I love that I have a partner in crime to back me up on the dolphin front - noone gets it, but they seem so obviously scary to me. Haha! x

  3. Thank you Latte Mum! I am looking forward to checking out the other mummy blogs you have recommended x

  4. Thanks so much I am so touched to be included. :) Your sunshine has put a big smile on my face. Thanks again and will post tonight, looking forward to creating it.
    Love and hugs to you.

    1. Well deserved, and loved reading your post and facts about you xx
