#Blogtober16 Day 1 - Who Are You?

Whoooooooooo are you? Who, who who?

Sorry, that's all I could think about when I saw this prompt. The song by The Who that was the theme tune for CSI for so many years.

So who am I? Well, I'm Jo. I'm 36 and I'm a single mum to three kids.  The eldest two have autism and ADHD, so yes, I have my hands full.  But that doesn't define me.  I think that was really important to me when I redefined this blog was that although I may blog about mummy stuff, this isn't a mummy blog.  Being a mum is important but that's not who I am.

We have two cats, Fuzzy and Gizmo. Fuzzy is ginger and white but keeps using my wardrobe as a toilet so he isn't that popular right now! Gizmo is a tabby and I recently discovered him hobnobbing with the neighbour's dog!

I love sci fi, police procedurals, comedies and comic book stuff.  I can't wait for the Flash and Arrow to come back on my screen! I love to read, my favourite author is Georgette Heyer but I'm currently working my way through as many young adult dystopian novels as possible!  And The Martian was amazing!

Something I enjoy doing is crafting - I like to crochet and knit.  I also enjoy making jewellery but I'm not very good at it.

One of my passions is beauty - creating a new make up look or putting some pretty glitter on my nails reminds me that I'm still a woman, not just a mummy.

So yeah, that's pretty much me. I'm enjoying getting back into blogging and writing again so hopefully we can get to know each other better as this blog progresses. I'm taking part in Blogtober16 which has been set up by the lovely Mandi at Hexmum + 1 so hoping to post every day. She's promised chocolate if we do..... So please check out the link below and read all the other lovely Blogtober posts.

    1. Hi, nice to meet you too. ADHD just makes the autism that bit more fun! When you have a climber with no impulse control....
