The girl with the five lads 1 unhappy-389944_960_720

The girl with the five lads is my blog about family life when Mum has Fibromyalgia and other chronic illness. I have 5 sons, love red lipstick and I always have a massive smile.


I am a Qualified complementary therapist and Earth Mamma. I started this blog as a way to show other people with the same illness that you can still find happiness being poorly sick.


Back in 2007, when my sons were age 1, 4, 9, 10 and 12 we became a single parent family. We went everywhere together, I became known as THE GIRL WITH THE FIVE LADS.  

Hence the blog name!


I am a happy content lady but I work at my happiness daily. Life can be a bitch I agree, but I still love it so much.

Lately, I am thankful for my thick skin as people can be so insensitive and not even realise. If I am to do this subject any justice I can not insinuate that this is isolated to strangers, loved ones and family can be equal as harsh, all be it with a loving smile


Blogging Earth Mama with 5 sons and Fibromyalgia  just trying to find her balance in the world..


It is so easy to lose your smile and the ability to appreciate the simple wonderful things around you. Hopefully, I can help shine some love and light on your smile again.


The blog covers the ordinary life as a woman with chronic illness, family, all things positive, makeup, fashion for comfort, crafting, recipes and simple living.
