This blog is about what is says, being a wife, a mum and a student bum.

I'm 33 and I live in the Merseyside area. I work, have three gorgeous kids.

I studied with the Open University part time and graduated in 2015 with a First Class Honours in History. You can read more about that here

I now study at University of Liverpool for an MA in Twentieth Century History.

I love being a student it is part of who I am.


I have three children, who do my head in but I love them very much.

Emily (14) Alice (6)  Rosie (4)

I have a very supportive husband Warren, who like to be semi-anonymous within this blog. He supports Everton FC, collects vinyl records and generally saves me from myself.

I have written a number of guest posts for other bloggers, as well as contributing to The Huffington Post and being featured in The Open University Magazine.

I like wine and being silly. Sometimes independently.

I review products and days out here, so if you want me to review something openly and honestly you are welcome to get in touch.

Feel free to have a nose around my blog. If you want to get in touch wing me an email.



  1. only just discovered your blog - love it! I'll be back!

  2. Thanks Mary - I appreciate your comment :)

  3. Just signed up to follow you after reading your story in OU Student. I too am a mum of three, I work full time as a childminder and I'm about to embark on an OU course! So glad I've found you : )

  4. What course are you doing Katie? The OU is brilliant - I can't wait til my next set of books arrive in a few weeks!

  5. I've just nominated you for a Blog Your Heart Out Award on www.dessertsanddecoupage.co.uk, can't wait to read your reply :)

  6. Hi. Found your blog through The Oliver's Madhouse :) & what a coincidence! My husband is an OU lecturer and teaches History! He teaches A326, A327 and A200 :) We live in Cornwall though, so he covers the South West :) All the best, Dean

    1. Aww that's great.. I can't praise the OU highly enough, I love it :)

  7. Hahahaha thank you for popping by my blog hahahah I love your family cloud, the bonking made me giggle lol

  8. Hi Kerrie, I just read your blog from Mumsnet. You are funny.
    I'm an OU tutor in history, not your region though. I hope you get your first.

  9. Hi there love your blog! Just discovered you and am doing a Journalism degree, have one child and one on the way. Going to be starting my own on line blog about being a student mum and would love any hints and tips. Mine will be different as i actually attended the uni and its not an OU course. Any hints and tips would be appreciated.
