All About Me #Blogtober17 – Day 1


Hi there! Welcome to Day 1 of #Blogtober17, a 31 day linky where each day is a new topic to write about.  Today is quite an easy one as today’s prompt is All About Me!

All About Me

I’m Debbie, although my actual name is Debra. However the people that call me that are few and far between and don’t even include my family. When I was younger I never liked my name as it was always mis-spelt and also rhymed with zebra. You can image the fun the kids had at school!

I’ve been married to my husband Rik for 12 years, although we have been together for almost 19, and we have two gorgeous children. I also have a daughter from a previous relationship.

After the birth of our eldest I decided to become a SAHM mum, which is a position I still hold today. I don’t miss the corporate world one little bit and am very happy being my own boss, although at times the hours suck!

In what little spare time I have I love reading; so much so that I have set up a separate blog specifically focused on book reviews and other bookish posts. You can check it our here. I also run The Chaotic Paper Geek, another blog focusing on my passion (or should that be obsession) with planners, stickers and stationery.

When I’m not cleaning the house or stuck behind the computer I love spending time with my family. We love getting out and about in our local area. We also love being at home and getting crafty.

I think that’s about it for today as I don’t want to be going over the same ground again. If you want know more you can check out my About Me page, the Tell Me More blog tag or even 10 Things That Make Me Happy

I hope you will stick around for the rest of #Blogtober to see what we have in store for you.

Debbie x
