Hi, my name is Natalie AKA The Spoonie Mummy. I am 31 and have a wonderful boyfriend, two gorgeous sons and a beautiful step-daughter. I love to write, read, spend time with my family, watch movies, cook and play with make-up. I have numerous chronic health conditions including arthritis, crohns disease (for which I have an ileostomy), iritis, high blood pressure and ostopenia.
I started my blog in February 2017. The previous 18 months had been extremely difficult and writing certainly helps me to deal with things. But more than that, I wanted to help others. I want people to see that even with arthritis, you can still have many adventures. That even with an ostomy you can still look and feel good. That you can still be a fantastic parent, even when chronically unwell. I hope to inspire, support and raise awareness using my blog and appreciate everyone who has supported and helped me with this.
I chronicle many different areas of my life – the health stuff, parenting, my hobbies and things we all do daily. I am currently a part time student with The Open University, studying for my degree in Childhood/Child Psychology.
I am pleased to have been invited to work with many different brands and companies. I always try and make sure my reviews are honest and helpful to my readers.
I am also a regular reviewer on the fantastic ‘A Balanced Belly‘ blog and also write for Talk Health as a resident blogger. I am a proud member of the Chronic Ilnness Bloggers team and a presenter on The IBD & Ostomy Sipport Show which is an hour long, live show on YouTube weekly. I have also recently started a YouTube channel to run alongside the blog and enjoy making videos for that.
