At The Motherhood, we like to multi task
You could say that our brain has too many tabs open, and we do not like focusing on just one topic, so here you will find it all!
Holiday and Travel
Family holidays, days out and trips away are enriching times for a family, they provide lifetime memories and opportunities to explore the world.
Toys and Games
Growing up toys can be fun, but also educational. They can provide wonderful ways to develop the imagination and develop new skills too.
Gadgets and Tech
We live in a world of technology, from laptops and phones, tablets and games consoles. Our life is lived online, and to be honest, we are all a bit geeky at heart
Food and Drink
Keeping the family happy with food is always important. Whether its eating out, or cooking and celebrating at home, we have ideas and suggestions to make your life easier as a mother.
The ups and downs of family life detailed through our blog posts. We do not sugar coat things and hope that we will be able to share some words of wisdom with other parents out there.
Arts, Crafts and Interiors
We love getting creative, be it making, sewing, painting or unleashing our interior creative flair, you will find our craft box fully stocked at all times.

About The Motherhood
Welcome to The Motherhood. Where parenting is a tricky business to get right, and we do not pretend to be perfect at all. Instead, we are family who each have our own interests but share the one ambition, to make our lives as full and meaningful as possible. To experience all that life has to offer and make memories along the way.
Things can be difficult being a single parent; I know that all too well. We have our own rules, ways of life and little habits which can drive another person mad at the best of times. Even though its hard as a single parent, I have a fantastic support network of friends who are parents themselves and will pop up on The Motherhood along the way. Throw 2.4 cats into the mix at home and you have our little family. You can find out more about the members of our family below.
We are aiming to do things a bit differently on The Motherhood. We are not only a blog, but a cross platform social media family network. We have our own social media channels which we manage individually, bringing everything together in The Motherhood Hub. Working with us means that you get multi-channel interaction, with each person having a different target audience. We have a unique set up which we hope will appeal to many audiences. We also are completely honest in our views and give a no holes barred look at our life, farts and all.
Facebook pages with over 600 active subscribers
Twitter accounts with over 2000 twitter subscribers with great interation
Instagram accounts with photos in the top 9 on our most used hashtags with great comments and constant stream of likes
Other Social Channels
We also actively use the following social media platforms
Who is in The Motherhood Family
Mum to Boy Wonder, writer, cake baker, cat lover, and former tea room owner, now runs The Motherhood. Interests include music, driving, travel, crafts, geeky stuff and sleeping. Avid tea and coffee drinker. Likes giraffes and hates rope bridges and bananas.

A member of our extended family and honorary member of The Motherhood. A typical 15 year old girl who feels she has the weight of the world on her shoulders and is constantly attached to social media. Can communicate with shrugs.

The Motherhood HQ is home to 2.4 cats, but mostly Benny and Joon. Benny is an 8 year old male who mostly lives outside and under a tree. Joon is the newest addition to the household and is just a kitten who likes to eat flies and cause havoc whenever possible.
Who we work with
What is going on in The Motherhood?
Have you ever heard the phrase, “just a Mum”? Maybe you have said it about yourself or heard a friend say it in passing. As it is Mothering Sunday this weekend, I am here to tell you that there is no such thing as being “just a Mum”, because being a Mum is one of[…]
Breakfast is not normally something that I focus on. I am not usually hungry in the mornings, opting for coffee or something later on. But once in a blue moon I fancy breakfast, and by that I mean a proper breakfast, one with all the trimmings. I have a local place that I go to[…]
I have been swept away by the weeks going by too quickly this year already. Next weekend the clocks change, nights get lighter and weather should improve. Coughs, colds and the school lurgy bugs which are coming home may become a distant memory as we move into the summer months. So what did my February[…]
I procrastinate. I will admit it. I procrastinate and I sometimes need a kick up the arse to get motivated again. I think we all have these moments at some time or another. For creative types it can come more frequently than we would like to admit. It is easy to push things to one[…]
I have previously written about some of my experiences in the online dating world including dates and messages which have really stood out for me. It has taken a while, and I did have to kiss a few frogs along the way, but I eventually have found my knight in shining armour and not an[…]
If you are a parent you will have heard of STEAM – and no, we are not talking about the type coming out of your ears in frustration. SIENCE TECHNOLOGY ENGINEERING ART MATH They are the key building blocks in the education system and it is now transferable to toys and games to get children[…]
January has started off at a cold and slow pace. I have been enjoying my time planning my blogging and work like in my Bullet Journal, filling it will wonderful ideas and carefully made plans, all drawn out in a multitude of coloured pens, for added flare. The problem is, unless I instagram every page,[…]
