About Me

My name is Cheryl and I live in Somerset with my partner Dino and 3 daughters Isabella, Lia and Alexa.

Me & Dino
Alexa, Lia and Isabella

I am a happy easy going person who loves nature and being outdoors. One of my favourite places to be is at the beach, where I love to go swimming, snorkelling, body boarding and taking our blow up kayak out.

As a family we love going on adventures and discovering new places. We now live in the beautiful county of Somerset and love to get out and enjoy the countryside whenever possible.

I am also a football mum with my two youngest daughters both football mad so I am often out watching them play on Saturdays and Sundays even in the cold weather.

I have a passion for writing and photography so have combined the two to create The Simple Mum blog.

In this blog you will find parenting advice, guidance, children’s activities, recipes, product reviews, inspirational interviews, places to visit and much more.

I am also a children’s author and have 2 books released –

Pete The Cheeky Parakeet which is a lighthearted funny rhyming story with a great message about friendship and kindness.

The Book of Silly Rhymes which is packed full of short silly rhymes to bring fun and laughter to reading time.
