Who is Bubbablue and Me?

Hi and thanks for stopping by to read Bubbablue and me.

So who is Bubbablue and me?

I’m Emma.  I’m married to a farmer, and had my son in 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….then the blog was born a year-ish later.

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

Friends describe me as down to earth ‘straight down the line’ and matter of fact, and that’s what I hope you’ll find on the blog.  Real photos, straight talking conversational posts, and someone who’s happy to chat on social media.  I cover parenting, days out and (mainly UK) travel, school days exploits, snippets of farming life and a bit on dancing, food, crafts and books.  Whatever takes my fancy, that’s what the blog is about.

I’m also lucky enough to get the chance to work with brands – to share their values and products with my readers, and show how they relate to us and our life.

If you want to contact me, check out the various subscribe and follow options on the right, email me at etustian@hotmail.com, or do leave me a comment.

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

  1. Can I ask a question? – Why is your Competitions page massively out-of-date? Are you having problems with your server?

    1. It shouldn’t be. It’s run on a plugin so it should be updated automatically. It could be that you need to clear your cache. But I’ll have a look. It has been fine for me when I last looked at it.

    2. Hi Spencer. I’ve checked and my competitions page is up to date. There are no live competitions under current, and the finished competitions are all correct too. It must be your cache that needs emptying. Sorry I can’t help with that one.

      1. Thanks for checking – as you say probably my laptop. I will try to sort it. Keep up the blogs though I love thes about school and farm.

    1. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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.


    1. 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.

  6. 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!

    1. 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.

    2. 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!

Let me what you think below
