Advent Calendars Kid Edition

Back in the day when I was a child, there were only 2 types of advent calendar and we usually had both in our house every year. The advent calendar with a single piece of chocolate for each day, always Dairy milk chocolate was one and the other was a more biblical kind, with a nativity scene and windows with pictures.

It's Blogtober Baby

Only I would start a blog the day before Blogtober! I've been meaning to give blogging a go for a while now and after hearing about it from some lovely blogger friends I've met online, I thought I would take the plunge, throw myself into the deep end and see if it's for me. And what better way to start than with Blogtober... For anyone who hasn't heard of or taken part in Blogtober before, its ultimately a challenge for bloggers to publish a blog post every single day during the month of October. There are no strict rules on topics to cover, its just there to encourage more writing and creativity.  Some people like to map out what each days blog post will cover before hand, others publish their topic lists on their Day One post, but I will be winging it. I have a few ideas, but haven't actually written anything in advance, giving myself an even bigger challenge, but hey, that's what makes it fun right!  Love Sophie, MMC x    

6 Must Watch Series for Mums

I have got through my fair share of series since becoming a Mum. A lot of them have been cheesy crap from the 90’s, because let’s face it, concentration spans reduce massively when you’ve got a little one to keep alive! But I have also had a chance to watch some great series, ones that I have totally been able to relate to from one time or another and that is what great TV is all about right?  So here are my top 6 must watch series for Mums: 1.   Girls|6 Series|Prime Video So, out of all the series mentioned in this post, this one doesn’t feature Mums as main characters, but is a great series, full of dark humour with raw and real story lines. It takes you on a journey of a group of friends in their 20’s, faced with the usual difficult choices adulthood brings. In my opinion it’s a modern-day indie version of Sex and The City. It made me laugh continuously, with some real shock factor moments and also brought on a few tears too. You will fall in love with Lena (the main character),

A Big Mighty Mum Welcome!

Hello, I'm Sophie and this is my first ever blog post! I am a stay at home Mum to a threenage son, a fur baby Norfolk Terrier and currently share my 'work place' with my wonderful husband who is working hard at home (somehow!), keeping us all a float during these crazy COVID-19 times. My biggest mission is to bring all Mighty Mum's together and I hope this blog will really help with that! Before having a baby, I was a Personal Assistant and loved the buzz of being constantly busy, having events to plan (and attend!) and meeting so many new people. Shortly after having my son, we moved to Watford, so I started the @mightymumclub Instagram account, sharing outings and activities in the new area I had moved too. Just over a year later and my account has grown and so have I as a parent. I have met some lovely local Mum's, found some fantastic small businesses and met some great new friends, a lot of them being incredible bloggers! I always try  and see the funny side
