Welcome to One Frazzled Mum.
The blog where I let my imagination do the talking. What started off as a place to write about life has now evolved into somewhere I can indulge my passion for writing. Read on to find out more………………..
The Frazzled Mum
I am Tracey. Mum to one who is permanently hovering between confused, chaotic and downright puzzled at any given time. If you’re wondering does the blog moniker fit the writer, let me tell you this……….never has a name been apter than One Frazzled Mum.
Having found myself in my mid 30’s (ish) and somehow raising a tween you can find me often pondering how I got here and when exactly did I lose that 25-year-old girl I still think I am. The past 10 ish years have flown by in a whirlwind of chocolate, coffee, dramas and well basically life. All against the backdrop of the River Mersey from where I reside in the posh part (or so I’m told), The Wirral.
Writing at One Frazzled Mum reignited a passion I thought had been long lost in the heady days of my early 20’s and has seen me flourish as I branch out into creative writing as I fill this blog with my own fictional worlds, characters and dramas (yes, both real and fictitious). If I’m not writing, I am reading or wasting away precious child-free school hours browsing Facebook/Instagram/Twitter or all of the above.
Olivia is now 13 and was born a premature whirlwind at 5 weeks early. She is headstrong, independent and fabulously feisty, unless she is being feisty with me then it’s not quite so fabulous. As she hits her tween years she is indulging in her passion for writing too (like mother, like daughter), singing and drama. Mostly in out of school clubs. Once a willing participant to her mums endeavours on the blog, Olivia has taken a step back to allow her mum free reign online and is currently very selective about when she wants to get involved.
That being said, Olivia still loves to dabble in toy reviews and anything else tween related to build up her resume for her future career as a YouTube starlet. Move over Zoella, there’s a new kid on the block, well there will be in about 3 years or so when she finally gets around to it. Motivation no doubt buried under the mountain of junk that in a former life was her bedroom floor!
One Frazzled Mum is the home for product reviews, both elaborate and quirky alongside occasional tips posts and random musings about life. Usually, they appear as I close my eyes to go to sleep, sometimes they make it further than my head and an idea. But mostly you will be able to read my latest creative writing pieces or poems. This is where I am the happiest writing right now as I attempt to pursue my dreams of being a published author one day.
