The second post in my new series, Meet The Welsh Bloggers, features Tamsin from Chasing Esme. I love reading Tamsin’s blog as her beautiful daughter, Esme, is a similar age to Aria so I can totally relate to her. Tamsin is also going through the same painful process as me at the moment, growing out a short hair do.
Firstly, tell me a bit about yourself and your blog:
I absolutely love going to watch him at a gig – I’m a total fan girl, who knows all the words to his songs and jumps up and down at the front like a loon!
What do you love most about living in Wales?
The countryside in Powys is stunning – I once rode a horse called Bumble up a mountain while I was there, and the views were utterly breathtaking.
And, Wales’ beaches are pretty wonderful. Especially places like Barafundle Bay and Freshwater East and West. If you don’t believe me, watch Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows!
What, if anything, is your least favourite thing about living in Wales?
The second, is that there’s hardly anything here. I’d love to be a wrestler, and whilst I know that it’s a sport not many people do, there’s loads of places to go in England.
Wales? There’s two, but only one with a women’s division. And it takes ages to get there.
What made you decide to start a blog?
I wrote a blog one time about the difficulties of being a new mum, and finding the transition from Tamsin to Mummy difficult. I had a lot of people comment and say that they thought it was great, and most people could relate to what I was saying.
So, I guess that’s my highlight so far.
Oh, and CJ Wildheart retweeted the review I wrote about his album. I was delighted with that.
Who are your favourite Welsh bloggers?
There’s two blog’s I enjoy reading the most, and in no particular order:
I love reading A Slice Of My Life Wales by Leanne Cornelius. Aria is of a similar age to Esme, and I love to read about what Leanne, Spencer and Aria have been up to.
Plus Aria is just the cutest thing ever!
Another blog I love is Cardiff Mummy Says by Cathryn Scott. I remember the first post I read about getting the kids ready for school in the morning, and how much of a nightmare it was, and I was hooked from then onwards!
Thanks for taking part in my series Tamsin, it was lovely to get to know you a little better and I am thrilled that you enjoy reading my blog!
