About my blog


I started writing my blog in 2008.  It's the story of my family, and how we have learned to thrive and not just survive when life didn't go quite as we planned.


I'm Steph, a suburban mother, sometime Marketing Director, now family plate spinner, writer, carer, spokesperson, campaigner and marathon runner (actual as well as metaphorical).


I am a mum of four.

I am a widow.

I am a bereaved parent.

My life was never going to be predictable but as my husband Andy always said, it is what it is, it's how you respond which makes the difference.
