Who am I? I’m Becks, a 40+ mum of two delightfully crazy, loud and adorable kids and married to a man who loves me for all my faults (well, most of them!). I’m sure I have an inner domestic goddess somewhere waiting to burst out but I’m still waiting. Not sure after 40 odd years it will happen but I can hope. I’m a secondary school teacher and college lecturer by profession and I currently do supply teaching which allows me to add a little extra to the household income and allowing us to live comfortably. It also means the list of jobs needed on the house modernisation needed to bring it into the 21st Century is less of a financial challenge, of which I will post about at some point – the before and after pictures should make for light entertainment. The old 90’s Ikea ‘chuck out the chintz’ advert keeps playing in my head my house was just so 80’s when we moved in! I am brutally honest about life and ‘stuff’ and I often say I’m like Marmite – you either like me or not! I can’t please everyone and life is too short to try. Did I mention I like to talk?
