All About Me

Hello there!


My name is Deborah {but Debs or Debi is fine!}, I am a 41yr old Mother of five – Rhys 21, Ethan 20, Ellie 16, Jacob 13 & Annabelle 8. I am also married to one of the world’s good eggs, Sean. He has just recently started his dream job as a Software Developer and we couldn’t be more proud of him. We live just outside Belfast in Northern Ireland with our two cats Sega & Mabel and our free-roam house rabbit, Hopper.

I have been blogging for eight years now {wow} and I cover a wide range of subjects. From school days, creating free educational printables, our family adventures, the rollercoaster ride that is parenthood as well as brand collaborations & product reviews.

Visiting Rathlin Ideas

Growing up I never, ever considered blogging. Not until my youngest daughter was 3mths old. And even then I thought a ‘blog’ was an online diary of sorts and never in a million years, did I ever think it would blossom into what it is today. To say how proud I am of it is impossible to put into words. My family and I have been so incredibly lucky throughout the years and had some amazing experiences and opportunities, all through my little space on the internet.

I have learned so much over the years as a blogger. And not only has both my writing and my writing style improved but so has my photography skills. I am obsessed with taking photos and editing photos that are the perfect fit for each of the blog posts that I create.

And lately, I have dabbled in video creation, which has quickly become another skill that I am learning and trying to perfect. They are also gorgeous little keepsakes for us to look back on in years to come.

As a blogger, I hope that I can inspire some of those who read my blog. Whether it be with helpful tips, parenting relations, product reviews and more. I also aim to be someone other parents can relate to. Making us realise that we are in fact, all in the same boat, weathering the same storm.

Me and Mine

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you’ll stick around! xx

If you’d like to get in touch, for whatever reason – fancy a chat, have a question, wishing to have a product tested, then please do send me a message. I love to hear from you, for whatever reason!
