Hi! I’m Becky, full time (term time) working mummy of 2. A little girl who’s 8 and an amazing miracle boy who’s 2. I’m married to Mr C, Chris, he’s a great husband and a fantastic daddy.
I started this blog back in 2012 to document training I was doing for a half marathon (it didn’t go well.) Over time it’s evolved into a space for me to express the thoughts and feelings that are whizzing round in my brain through poetry and prose. It also captures our adventures, memory making, daily life, occasional rants and all things me and mine.
At the end of 2015 Chris was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer, Ewings Sarcoma. During 2016 he had intense chemotherapy and had to have his left leg amputated. The treatment looked to have worked but unfortunately less than 2 months later it has returned. You are invited on our journey as we deal with cancer and it’s treatment as a family.
I like to call this space eclectic, it’s a true reflection of our lives and the way my brain works.
I hope to break down barriers and ignite conversation about difficult subjects. You might learn a bit more about us, you’ll definitely get a glimpse of what we’ve been up to, I hope you get a feeling for the fun and laughs we have even on the darkest days and if I’m lucky you won’t mind my ramblings too much!
This is the Diary of a Fat Bottomed Girl, mines a little wobbly, this is my theme tune, ’cause no matter what they make the rocking world go round!
