About Me

I’m Felicity, otherwise known as Fay (my mum always wanted to call me Felicity, but was ‘over-ruled’).  However when you actually see the meaning of Fay (not of this planet), it was perfect, never been one to be ‘normal’.  I am a mum of 3 boys.  Henry (the geek), Fred (the jock) and Samuel (the bloody nutcase!).  And whilst they permanently drive me nuts, they are also the best thing to have ever happened to me.

Where

I live in a beautiful village just outside York in the North East of England.  In our beautiful home that we built whilst I was pregnant with Samuel, and I’m still decorating.  I am originally from Scotland but moved to London in my early 20’s.  I met my husband in the early noughties through work, and moved to York a year or so after.  The rest they say is history…

Who

I am allergic to most antibiotics, was born with a hole in my heart and suffer from clinical depression (twice before the boys, the worst after the birth of Fred, but I’m currently suffering again and about to undergo another course of CBT Therapy).  Wearing my heart on my sleeve, I constantly worry about what other people think of me/my kids/my parenting style, after being bullied relentlessly through my junior years at school.  I champion mental health awareness, and believe in being open and honest about everything in my life in order to help others.

Why

I have two passions in life: my kids and raising mental health awareness.  I want to be able to combine the two and work with children helping them with their well-being.  Our children are being faced with an ever changing world and I really want to help them achieve the most they can, be happy healthy and give them the tools to ensure they can make a difference.
