I am Katy, a 32 year old mummy of three. We always thought we were done at two but life doesn’t work like that does it? I am married to my best friend in the whole world, we met at university and have been together for 13 years now. I still can’t believe that actually, where on earth does the time go?? If you want to have a read of our love story then you’ll find a whole series to enjoy.

This blog follows the life of me and my little family. I write about lots of different things, from parenting, to mummy fashion, to sharing my favourite recipes. I am currently addicted to making videos and am building up my YouTube channel every day. Hop over and take a look if you want – I’d love if you subscribed while you are there 😉

I am a teacher by trade but for the past 5 years I have been a stay at home mum. Teaching is not how it used to be and so I couldn’t sit by and watch my family play second fiddle to my career. In September 2014 I started doing 1 day a week supply and actually that suits me perfectly. If you are thinking about leaving teaching then I can definitely recommend it! You get to teach, actually teach! Remember that?

I started writing this blog in May 2014 and quite quickly it became my obsession. It is now my job and I am eternally grateful to everyone who comes and reads my posts. I have had awesome opportunities, been able to take my family on our first holiday and get to road test gorgeous prams as part of my role as a Britax Mumbassador.

Do you know what is the best bit about blogging? You! I love connecting with my readers, sharing my life so they feel a little more normal. I have shared our milk allergy journey and our experience with toddler hypoglycemia and the messages I have been sent from other parents, thanking me for helping them in the same situation, really mean the world to me.

I’m not perfect but I love my family more than anything and I hope that when you read my posts you come away feeling a little inspired, maybe to try something new or just to embrace life and smile more.

Every day might not be happy but there is happy in every day. 

Me and Mine Wedding October

My little family –  Me looking a little bit glam as a bridesmaid for my best friend’s wedding, Mr F looking dapper in a suit and my two gorgeous girls. Gracie (Little G) is 5, my blonde bombshell and Lils (LJ) is 2 and the craziest monkey ever.

And here is a photo of the newest member of our family, Wills. I am yet to get a decent photo of the 5 of us together but we take monthly family portraits so I will get one soon!

So that is us! We live just north of London and spend our days being happy together, doing the things we love. I hope you will enjoy reading about everything we get up to!

Do you accept guest posts?

Up until recently I was accepting submissions for my Real Mums feature. I am stopping that as of the new year though but I will still be running my Happy Days linky. This aims to inspire people to make the best out of every day.

Do you earn money from your blog?

Yes I do. I work with several brands on campaigns throughout the year. This can be through sponsored content or through product reviews. I will never write about something I do not believe in or something that does not fit with my family.

I also have adverts and affiliate links placed on the blog. This means if you click through certain links I will get a small percentage when you buy something from that website. Click here for my disclosure policy.

I would like to start a blog, do you have any advice?

I love to help others get started! Everyone should start a blog, it is amazing! I have a few posts from my Blog Clinic series or you can check out Live. Love. Blog, a blog I run with an amazing blogger friend, Aby.

How do I get in touch?

I would love to hear from you! My email is katy@whatkatysaid.com. For any PR companies, please head over to my Work With Me page.  For any burning questions why not send me a tweet?


  1. Dear Katy,

    I am a children’s book illustrator and I have recently launched a website and online shop selling original prints as gifts for children. As you have lots of contact with parents, I would appreciate any comments on my products and if available, the possibility to advertise/have a link on your site.

    Kind regards
    James Croft
