Not just a Mutti

Being a new mum, it’s sometimes easy to forget who I was before Busby came into this world. I will eventually have to go back to work, but even now I’m not “just” a Mutti; I’m a whole host of people, squished into one 5’5″ brunette from Brighton.

This is me.

I am: a fiancΓ©e, a mother, A DAUGHTER, a friend, a sister, a niece, a chef, A NURSE, a shoulder to cry on, a chest to sleep on, A WRITER, a singer.

I am usually: barmy, HAPPY, smiley, organised, silly, sarcastic, KIND, cheeky, sensible, impatient, DETERMINED, tired, bossy, CREATIVE, hungry, tidy, CLUMSY, giddy.

I am sometimes: hormonal, FRUSTRATED, sad, lazy, SHY, angry, messy, lonely, GREEDY, selfish, shrewd, WITTY.

I like: CHEESE, the way Busby smiles at me first thing in the morning, reading, learning new skills, WHEN NICK GETS HOME FROM WORK, writing, shopping, G&Ts, horse riding, A SCALDING HOT BUBBLE BATH, Sunday mornings in bed with Nick and Busby, Bridget Jones, singing, RED WINE, Berlin, Christmas, MY BIRTHDAY, crafting, Musical Theatre, massages, ZOMBIES, daffodil yellow, Mary Poppins, sticky toffee pudding, TEQUILA!

I dislike: being late, sitting still, MARLEY AND ME, egg whites, wasps, THE SMELL OF ENERGY DRINKS,  confrontation, camping, THE IDEA OF GHOSTS, failure, tomatoes, being cold, HOUSE PRICES IN THE SOUTH EAST, pretentious people, crying, renting, THE TASTE OF COFFEE, public transport, text speak spelling, THE PHRASE “YOLO”.

I am all of the above. I am me. I’m not just a Mutti. 

Linking up with the fabulous Rachel’s (of Three Years and Home) “I am me” linky. 

I am me

    What a lovely post. It is so important to remember who we are as well as being mummy. I love how you have expressed it too. And I dislike wasps and Yolo too :))

    I love your photos. You look so so happy. And you’re right … we really do have such similar likes and dislikes. This calls for a red wine and tequila party in the future. Thank you so much for joining in with this. I really enjoyed reading it.

    I love this and laughed a little at the amount of people who have written: camping in their ‘dislikes’ list! Great photos and yes, you do look a little ‘barmy’!

    Hannah, I am just getting round to reading all of these #notjustamum posts. They are all fab. I am completely with you on YOLO, I also hate ‘banter’ and ‘standard’!

      “Banter” is very annoying! Nick and I use “standard” ironically πŸ™‚ xx
