After a long sabbatical, twomumsy is back. . . but who is she?
My name is Lynne, I am a 40-something single mum of two small children, THE GIRL and THE BOY.
Before the children came along I adopted THE DOG, who is a 7 year old cross breed terrier, whom like myself has rapidly aged and is accumulating grey hairs by the day.
I am an ‘older’ mum, a single mum. A tiny bit of a geek, a nerd, a bookworm, whatever you want to call it? I take it as a compliment. AS do my kids. My 6 year old daughter has been called both a geek and a nerd. She is ‘gifted’. She has ‘high learning potential’ (which I hope she doens’t squander, like I seem to have). She is clever beyond her years, she can read, she can write, she is creative, imaginative. She has a gift for literacy . . . I wonder where she got it from?? She prefers books to sports, reading to dancing. If this maketh a nerd . . .then we wear that badge with pride. Thank you very much.
I took my son to his first taster football session this morning. He didn’t last the whole hour, he was bored. My daughter was moaning on the touchline, so we swiftly left. We moved over to the other side of the campus and ended up in the childrens’ library = RESULT! Two very happy children. What can I say. We came home with 5 books, and 3 smiles 🙂 🙂 🙂
Oh, and as for anonymity. I thought it would add to my character ‘twomumsy’, it gave me the chance to exaggerate a bit. It also gave me the chance to bitch. I have learnt that bitching is not in my nature, it does not come naturally, it does not make me happy. There is no need for it, so there is no need for the anonymity. I am also aware that my identity had been found out some many months ago. . . Like I say, I am a little bit proud of my blog, and my kids, and myself, come to that!
Welcome to my happy little corner of the world . . .
