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.

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

Monday was a strange day for me. I had offered to go and help with a corporate event in Manchester in the early hours of the morning, but I did not foresee leaving the house at 6.15am and returning home after 1am. The day ran away with itself and before I know it, I am[…]

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[…]
