If this is your first time visiting The Motherhood, welcome! I am Vicky, 37 year old mum from Lancaster. I currently blog about the real life parenting of being a single mum to my rapidly growing 11 year old, Nathan, as well as covering topics such as lifestyle, food, travel, toys, games and gadgets, as well as invisible illnesses and disabilities. In a sense it’s a bit of a free for all here to be honest.
I live south of Lancaster with my son, who I home school, and our cats. I drink a lot of coffee, I love sleep and have an unhealthy obsession with Youtube. My linky answers are below and I look forward to seeing you at Blog On X, I am crossing all fingers and toes that I make it to this one without car trouble and also without ending up in hospital with meningitis like last time!

What’s your favourite pizza topping?
I love a good basic four cheese pizza, but if I am being fancy, the King of the Coast pizza from Pizza Hut with a white base, spinach, king prawns and roasted peppers.
You can have dinner with any three guests dead or alive- who do you choose and why?
Brendon Urie because he is such a talented and funny guy, he can make everyone laugh, wow people with his singing and also he is very humble and provides good advice if anyone needs it.
Shane Dawson as he is a comedy genius but also relatable on so many levels.
Billie Piper, my girl crush. She is just a bit epic but also a mum and we can talk parenting.
Up to now what would you consider being your biggest life achievement?
Overcoming a lot of life drama which included looking both my parents, going through divorce, a failed business venture, but still being able to raise an awesome son who has drive and ambition to educate himself through home schooling, and feels comfortable at 11 to have mature conversations about gender and sexual labelling.
If you woke up tomorrow as a character from any Disney film or book who would you be and why?
Baymax from Big Hero 6, not only is he a kickass super hero, but also has the ability to heal and make people feel better.
What is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?
Turn over and go back to sleep
If you won the lottery what would be the very first thing you would buy and why?
That is very dependant on the amount won. If it’s a life changing sum, I would need to come to terms with this change so a holiday would be the first port of call, and while away be looking at property and what sort of lifestyle I would want for myself and Nathan.
What is your favourite quote from a movie?
“Death by stereo!” Sam, The Lost Boys

If you could do anything in the world as a legitimate job what would you do?
I do it. I’m self employed as a blogger and have the freedom to pick and choose where my life takes me.
Where is your favourite place in the world?
Home. There is something so peaceful and calming about being in your own space surrounded by the items you treasure most. I try and live a very Hygge lifestyle, blankets, cushions, candles, home comforts, and that does make me love being in my own bubble.
I look forward to seeing you at Blog On X in a few weeks time. Don’t forget your suitcase!
Love, hugs and epic goodie bags
