About MummyKimmy


I’m a 36 year-old mum of two based in Edinburgh (via Aberdeen and Glasgow).

I started blogging when I was 17 weeks pregnant with the Wee Man. He’s now seven and has a wee brother – KD – who’s four.

I run my own business, have a husband who works long hours and generally find life a bit f***ing mental. This blog is my outlet. You’ll find posts about life hacks, catastrophes, milestones and the sacred NO KIDS time I occasionally enjoy – with a few reviews too.

If I’ve received anything for free, I’ll clearly mark it.

I’m a journalist by trade – I like to write for a specific audience with a proper purpose.

If I see one more blog called “musings” or “ramblings” I will scream. You won’t find diary entries or streams of thought here. You may occasionally find a post that’s password protected. This is because I write about my family, so when anything gets personal, I respect their privacy and put a password over it.

Some posts to start with:

20 Life Hacks for Stressed Out Mums

How to tidy in 13 steps

Unrolled rolls and motorway escapes

The 21 Hour Date

Mogabout on Arran

5 Things I love about my second child


I usually share my posts on Facebook, so the comments tend to appear there – but I really love it when someone comments directly on my blog.

  1. Hi MummyKimmy,

    Do you have an email address I can contact you on? Following up from our breastfeeding posts (yours and mine) I’ve been contacted by a TV show wanting to interview mums (preferably in the London area) to talk about the pressure to breastfeed.
    Wondered if you’d be interested?

  2. Hi there,
