Who is Bubbablue and Me?

Short snippet about me…

I’m Emma.  I’m married to a farmer, and had our first child in January 2011.  Previously, I’d never really seen myself having children, but it got to the stage where I had to decide whether I would look back and regret not having had them, or at least tried to have one. And so N was born, and I got into blogging.

I’ve always loved reading, plus I’m interested in people, so blogging has provided me the opportunity to not only journal N and my journey as he grows, but also discover, nosy and interact with other blogs.

I’m really pleased to now be a blogger for Water Babies, so watch out for more posts about what we get up to swimming.  And we’ll be sharing lots of cool sustainable toys from The Toadstool as we’re a Toadtester for them in 2014.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much as I enjoy writing it.

    Hi – I used to work with a Charles Tustian in North West Kent and bearing in mind it is such an unusual surname I wondered if he was your brother in law.

      Not related, no. Small world, but not that small lol. It’s quite a popular name in Oxfordshire and in farming, although lots of different spelling variations so it’s not so unusual to us.

        Charles was from Oxfordshire so I bet there is some relationship at some point to your husband’s family – like you say it is an uncommon name. Thanks for getting back to me :)

    Hi Emma, I have a feeling you may be quite near to me as I just read your post on childrens centre closures and you mentioned a rural childrens centre next to the primary school – if it’s in Bloxham that’s where we are! Nice to meet a local mummy blogger online at last!

      Spooky. Didn’t realise there was anyone so close. We’re about 7 miles from Bloxham, but that’s where I’m originally from. (well from age 7)

    Hey Emma,

    Ah, I always wanted children but I guess it wasn’t in the cards for me. The older I got I knew that there was no way this was going to happen. I was never very patient anyway so I guess maybe it all worked out for the best. I still think I would have been a great Mom but we’ll never know. Instead, I’m the cool Aunt.

      Thanks for popping by and commenting. I’m with you on the patience side of things – that’s really not me and it’s definitely been a case of having to try and take a step back from what I might want to say.

      As for being an Aunt. That’s pretty cool job (and you get to give them back afterwards once you’ve had enough). We’ve got 6 nephews/niece, and they’re great..I’m sure they think I ask them really boring questions though rather than being the cool one who’d take them out somewhere really interesting.

    I love your tag line – I am SO not a baby person either. Had a REALLY hard time with #1, and then I thought, “hey, I know what I’m in for this time, let’s give her a sibling” – then we got twins. They are almost 3 now and I urged each day to pass faster and faster so I could get past the baby phase!

      Thanks for popping by. That’s what would be my worry, having twins. Friend of ours, wanted to try for a 3rd, then a 4th in the hope of having a boy, and ended up with twins so has 5 now. She must be a baby person though. I’m definitely a toddler person at the moment. It’s a cracking learning phase.

      Thanks for the comment. Seems there’s quite a few of us non-baby people around! Wow going single to twins would be a nightmare, I guess having twins first would make everything afterwards seem easy if it was the other way round.

      Thankfully our baby stage wasn’t too bad as N was pretty easy compared to many of my friends’ babies. I’m just hoping we don’t get terrible teens or tweens to pay us back!
