Here we go!


Blog and information website concept.

This is scary…my first blog post. I’m not normally one for putting myself out there, but my lovely friend Natalie over at has persuaded me that this is the way forward, and that there are people out there that might actually be interested in all the mundane crap that goes on in my life. So here goes….

I suppose I should assume that not everyone reading this will know me personally, and introduce myself properly.

I’m Michelle. I like to say I’m mid thirties, but that’s a lie and has been for about 3 years. I’m rapidly approaching 40. I live in Berkshire with my husband and 2 children, the boy, 10, and the kraken who is 4. (I’ll save explaining that one for another day)

What else? I run my own cake business, I like drinking, I have a mouth like a sailor,  and I like going on holiday. I also love doing things that make it appear to the outside world that I’ve really got my shit together, when really I haven’t got a clue what I’m doing from one day to the next. I’ll teach you how to do that.

So what is my blog going to be about? I don’t know really…I suspect there will be recipes. I’m a bit of a fatty and I do love cooking. Easy simple stuff that you can chuck together and make it look like you’ve spent hours on it. That’s the way forward. There will be stories about my rather odd family, and reviews of places we’ve been so you know where to avoid (just in case we go back and you bump into us) A bit of all sorts really. What there won’t be is any bullshit and no pretence. What you see is what you get.  Life is hard, life with kids is super duper hard.

What I hope it will show is that we all just bumble through life doing the best we can. Sometimes we fuck up, sometimes it all comes together beautifully. That’s the magic of life, you never know what’s going to happen. So relax, and enjoy it. Do what feels good, eat the extra brownie (not the whole sodding tray mind you) and remember, there really is no such thing as normal.

  2. OK. I found the beginning, the nexus for your badass posts. What I’d come in search of was your blog’s address so I could pass it along without having to send someone through WordPress.
    I have saved, bookmarked, copied, pasted, whatever so I can recommend your Wicked Woman take on things to other people who may enjoy your blog much as I do.
    Great start.
    And obviously good going forward.

    1. 😂😂 thank you so much. I was actually thinking about you today, I made a fish pie for dinner so was going to share the recipe this week 😁


  3. OK, Michelle I’m going into withdrawal here. Nothing from your Wicked Woman persona since May 2.
    Your legion of readers and me, we’re ready to start trolling the back-alleys and gang hang-outs for our fix.
    Don’t make us go there.


    1. 😂😂 I’m so sorry! This is the busiest month for me. I have both my devil spawns birthdays within 3 weeks of each other, and to top it all off one of them infected me with a stinking cold and I lost my voice! My husbands dream, my worst nightmare. I couldn’t scream at anyone in my house for 3 while days.
      Please stay out of the back alleys, you never know what kind of weirdos you’ll find there! I’ll be posting something this week, I promise!
