What interests the motherhood
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 two 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 both have our own social media channels which we manage, 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.
Over 600 Facebook subscribers across a number of channels
Over 2000 twitter subscribers across various accounts with great interation
Over 1000 Instagram followers with interactions on every photo, likes always at least in high double figures
Other Social Channels
We also actively use the following social media platforms

Who we work with
What is going on in The Motherhood?
For many households across England, September means back to school. The smell of new school uniform, the rattle of new pencils and stationery, and mothers everywhere trying to get the perfect photo of their kids on the first day of term before the uniform is bedraggled and they are grumpy. Nathan returned to school, loosing[…]
This summer has been a bit of a right off for most, which for anyone who suffers with hayfever can tell you that its actually been a lovely summer in their eyes – no pun intended. Nathan suffers greatly from allergies and we have not been able to pin point what it is that sets[…]
I have a confession to make, and this may shock some of you out there, especially those who have known me as A Cupcake Mum and as Sitting Pretty Vintage Tea Room. You all know already that I love baking, and cake, and everything about being in the kitchen and being a foodie, it’s very[…]
Right ladies, (and those gents that may be reading this who are inclined that way.) We are going to talk about the penis. The willy. The Johnson. The Dick. The cock. The dangly bits which all men are very proud of in life. It starts with boys at a young age, they are fascinated, it[…]
The summer holidays are here and for us in England we have another 5 weeks of the cries “Muuuumm, I’m bored!” Nathan and I have come up with a lis to our top 13 activities to do during the summer holidays to cure boredom and make memories. These ideas include some top tips on how[…]
Recently I was invited to attend BritMums 16 as a room monitor and for my visit to the Big Smoke, I was lucky enough to get the chance to work with the Ibis Hotel group who provided me with accommodation in their Southwark Bridge Hotel. I have to admit, I am not a fan of[…]
Some of my friends were confused when I said I was bringing home my new baby. An immaculate conception must have occurred as they reminded me that I have not been pregnant for over 10 years now and I also am missing the man in my life for such things. Of course, there are other[…]
One thing that I know most kids love are tattoos. Even when I was little I can still remember the really rubbish ones that I would get in packs of bubble gum or from vending machines at the shop. We would stick them on by spitting on them to get the transfer to come off[…]
A few months ago, Nathan and I were given the chance to review Butterfly World, part of the My Living World series of educational and learning development kits from Interplay. We were sent the kit and along side it a pot arrived, well packaged, that contained 5 tiny catapillars and their food source for the[…]
