I Am Me - Morgan

Yesterday I was chatting to Jaime of The Oliver's Madhouse on twitter and she told me about this linky by Rachel of Three Years and Home. Reading her post for this linky I realised I’m not on my own, even though it may feel like it sometimes.

With my youngest starting full-time school in September I often get asked what I’m going to do with all that time, am I going to get a part time job? will I go to full time work? The answer to all of these is no. No I’m not going to go back to work. There I said it. For some reason when talking to people I feel guilty for saying it, like I should be going to work because, well what else would I do? But, you know what? I like being at home, I like being there for the kids and I enjoy having quiet time for myself when they are at school so I’m not going to feel guilty about this anymore.

Here’s who I am...

I am: A mother, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a friend.

I am sometimes: Happy, tearful, angry, sad, a big softie, a dreamer, an introvert, a loner, organised, disorganised, a planner, a writer, an awesome cook.

I like: Quiet time, my boys playing nicely together, cake, coffee, writing, the sun, writing in the sun :), a hot shower, Lego games on the Xbox, watching movies with the hubby when the kids are in bed.

And here's where I wish I was :)

I dislike: Having asthma, rude or inconsiderate people, any time my boys (all three of them) are upset, bullies, spiders, mud on the carpet (grrr).

This is only part of who I am, just like being a mum. There is so much more to all of us, I raise my glass to Rachel and her ‘I Am Me’ linky for allowing us all to share a little more of who we are.


  1. Thank you so much for joining in. I don't blame you for not going back to work. There's still so much to be done to keep a home and everything ticking over even when your child is out of the house for a few hours. It's not to be underestimated.

    I'm very fond of quiet time too. I'm not one for large groups of people and am more than happy in my own company. Through a piece of cake in to the mix and I'm super happy.


    1. I think this is a great linky, it gives us all a chance to tell everyone who we are aside from the mothering. I think people who don't do it think that SAHM's sit on their backside everyday with a cup of tea in hand and Jeremy Kyle on the TV. If only it were that easy eh? I'd never watch Jeremy Kyle but sitting on my bottom with a cup of tea and a piece of cake might be nice!

      Sounds like we have a few things in common. I hate parties and such, you have to 'mingle' and everything! I'd much rather be sat at home reading a book or something :)
