Welcome to my blog, a little enclave for the stories about my life and family.

I find myself perpetually in awe, transformed, terrified and lost in motherhood. So I write about it...

The beautiful. The ugly. The illness.

Since it's inception, Older Mum in a Muddle has gained wide recognition within the parent and lifestyle blogging community:
  • 2012 - 2015, long-listed for the Best MADS Blog Writer
  • Shortlisted as a blog to watch in 2013 by A New Generation.
  • Semi-finalist in the Lifestyle category of the Britmums Brilliance in Blogging awards, 2013.
  • I read this post to an audience of  500 plus at The Bloggers Keynote, Britmums Live, 2013.
  • Short pieces published in 100 Little Words on Parenthood.
  • Self-published a small booklet of prose and accidental poetry, Seasons of Motherhood.
  • Finalist and WINNER of the Writer Category in the Britmums Brilliance in Blogging Awards (BiBs) 2014.
  • For the second year running, I was asked to read another piece at The Bloggers Keynote, Britmums Live, 2014.

I welcome guest editorials, advertising and product reviews on Older Mum; an informative site dedicated to supporting mothers over 35. I also have another blog, Sadie Hanson, dedicated to my writing.

  1. Hi! Nice to read a bit more about you. I think half of my NCT class was actually older than you were when you had your baby - it's all the rage to have babies in your late 30s/early 40s around my way. Good to know a fellow Yorkshire woman-turned-Londoner, too. Glad to have found you!

  2. I've always visited you at this blog but popped over the the Older Mum one today and was wowed by all the information and help. I had my first child in my 35th year and fingers crossed for a second one, I will be well over 35. Will definitely be reading more. Thanks!

  3. Hi, had my kids at 37 and 40. Now where I live most women my age are grandmas. Older motherhood and mental health, sounds like your blog is right up my alley. ;)

  4. an award coming your way - http://itsjennythewren.wordpress.com/2012/10/19/the-booker-award/

  5. I had my kids at 38 and 40 (two weeks off 41 really) so I understand where you're coming from! I haven't had a chance to look at the rest of your blog yet but I will - and by the way I love the way it looks - nice style!

  6. Glad to have stumbled across your blog! Great writing style. I'm an older Mum now. But it wasn't always so... First at 23, fifth at 36... Youngest is now 10. The sums add up to big numbers that I can't believe because I think my head got stuck around 35....I am going to subscribe to your lovely blog

  7. Good to have found your blog. Really liked your DJ post :)

  8. Just found you via The Puffin Diaries... Had first child at 45, but he was already 6. The wonders of adoption :) looking forward to having a good look round, think I'm going to enjoy this

  9. Nice to have found you - I had two kids in my 30s and a 'bonus baby' at 43. Hope that makes the rest of your readers feel very young and sprightly!

  10. Excited to read more of your blog :)
