Welcome to the 40somethingmum blog. I live in Scotland with my husband, my nine year old son and twelve year old daughter. I love, love, love reading and writing, hence the blog. I also love getting out and about exploring my lovely country (the children not so much). I became interested in ‘minimalism’ a couple of years ago, which has proved challenging… but not impossible, whilst living with a serial hoarder and two children!
