Top 5 activities for the kids | Lake District
The Lake District is a fabulous place. We visit a couple of times a year usually. It's not too far away from us and it feels like a wonderful escape. These are my top five activities for children in the Lakes. Specifically young children (under 9 I guess), ...

Tsum Tsum Squishies Series Two Review
You may remember that no so long ago my children enjoyed trying out Disney Tsum Tsums (pronounces Zoom-Zooms). In fact, it started a new addiction in our household and all pocket money since has been spent on them. They are everywhere! When we were asked if...

Comfort Pure - A Tiny Dose of Love
You know that feeling when you slide into a freshly laundered bed, or put on a brand new dressing gown? That fluffy feeling, accompanied with a soft scent is one of the nicest feelings in the world, in my humble opinion! Comfort Pure sent me one of the most...

Losing you.
It feels like no time at all.  I was so pleased to have you back in my life.  To be able to tell you things about me. For you to learn who I really am. Rather than who you have been told I am. I have always put my trust in you. You have helped me.  Built wi...

Introduction
About HelpfulMum

Hello! My name is Siân and I am a 34 year old Mum of two, a boy born in March 2009 and a girl born in March 2011. I graduated last summer University, where I was a mature student studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics. Now I am a manager of a Bed and Breakfast in the Yorkshire Dales.

I was born in Yorkshire but moved to Oxford at the age of five when my Mum and Dad split up. Currently I live on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, having moved here nine years ago from London. We moved here when I married at the age of 21 (it'll never last - my wise father said), but we are still very much happily married. 

I have worked as a football analyst, a sports researcher, an assistant producer in sports news, in one of Her Majesty's prisons and, more recently, on a mental health ward (to name but a few).

Since starting University, I have become interested in fitness and going to the gym. I'm not aiming to lose weight, just to get fit (which seems to be working). Sewing, baking and reading are what I do in my (very little) spare time. I also love sport, football, rugby union, golf and formula one being particular favourites!

Bragging rights
My blog 'You're not from round here' was shortlisted in the 2012 Brilliance in Blogging awards in the Fresh Voices category. I was chosen to write a guest post for Caitlin Moran's website for the launch of her book 'How to be a Woman' and again for the launch of 'Moranthology'. I have also featured on Parentdish.
