About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. Loving your nature photos – great pics. Kids are so great at creating stories around an item they’ve found. Just wish I was as creative. (mind you, we did love doing this post ourselves too – more creative than I think obviously!)

  2. Hi Mary, What a great story; I love all the photos, in particular, the one of Gramps and his presentation box of bugs is fantastic! It looks like you both had a really great day full of fun and adventure. Tell Monkey to look after his ‘magic magnifying glass’ – it may well come in very useful again one day!
    Keep up the storytelling 🙂

    1. Thank you, and for your lovely book which we’ve been reading at bedtime. Gramps has a whole cabinet full of them, some are also now with the Oxford Natural History Museum, which is fab.

I'd love to hear from you and try to reply to all comments
