At the time of writing this, there is 2080 Facebook followers on the Mum To Five Facebook page. What started only four short months ago has far exceeded anything I ever thought of. What started as a bit of fun has turned into a whole lot of fun.

I write honestly and truthfully. You won’t read about me cooking or baking, I leave that to the experts. I don’t blog about fitness or wellbeing, again that is left to those who follow that lifestyle. I feed my kids takeaway, I am the worst cleaner in the world. I have a washing pile that puts Mount Everest to shame. I get cranky, cry, yell and scream on occasions. I love being a mother but it is by far the hardest job in the world. I won’t ever sugar coat it, and I never have. Waking up every day after no sleep and looking at little faces that expect you to entertain them for the next 14 hours is exhausting. Juggling so many personalities is demanding. School runs do my head in, and tantrums drive me up the wall.

And if being 100% honest helps one mother say to herself “I am not alone” then I have achieved what I set out to do.

When I say I appreciate you being on my page I mean it. There is a million mums blogs, pages, sites. More than you can find. The fact that you come to mine, enter giveaways and read blog posts means a lot.

All the giveaways are sourced by me bar a few. If you have anyone you’d like me to approach about doing one please let me know. I love reading your comments.

That said it’s time to do my favourite thing and that’s have a giveaway!

This one is different because it’s interactive.

To enter I want you to tag your own name. I am requesting on this one occasion you don’t share this. Why? I want the winners to come from the 2080 fans that are currently on the page. One entry per person.

On Monday 6 July 15 ย at 10am, 1pm, 6pm, 8pm and 9pm AEST I will draw winners one by one. You have 30 minutes to respond to the Facebook post and you can pick what prize you want, unless you’re last then you get what is left. ย If you don’t respond I redraw. The timing is by my count.

The prizes are:

Inside Out Family Movie Pass


How to Train Your Dragon 2 Prize Pack


Barbie Prize Pack


Milky Foot Prize Pack


Minions Prize Pack


Goat Soap Prize Pack




Good Luck!!!!!!!!! PS this is my blog post this week I am exhausted!

    Congratulations on reaching a milestone 2000+ supporters. Even though Iโ€™m parent-to-two, I can empathise with the combined frustrations and joy that nuturing brings to 2+! All the best, Chris.

    Write honestly and truthfully is what keeps me attracted to your blog. I never feel intimidated or ashamed of my own home life as many ‘stepford wives’ blogs make me feel. Please dont ever lose that trait or knack!
    So glad to join you on this journey and I look forward to seeing both your blog and FB grow and blossom.
