Marmalade and a night out!
The end of January signals the time to make Seville marmalade. One batch usually lasts the entire year in the B&B. Last year I was thrown into the deep-end when my uncle got called into work just as we'd started making the marmalade. I had very little idea ...

Geronimo Festival come to Harewood House

January 2016 - Month in a Minute
January has been so nice. We only had guests at the beginning of the month, and they were excited to wake up the next morning to snow which wasn't in the weather forecast. They were such a lovely group of people and they even sent us a card to thank us for ...

Your YouTube #56
The video I have chosen this week comes from Kara from ChelseaMamma . I chose it purely for the fact that it looks like great fun. I'm not sure I would throw myself off quite as willingly as Kara seems to, but I would definitely love to try it. Thank you to...

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.
