This is all about me and our family. We don’t quite fit in a box as we’re a bit unconventional in our way.
I’m Hannah, I’m a thirty-something Mummy. I love hanging out with my hubby, our foster son, our little boy and our friends. When I hit my teens, I would try to keep up with the boys and would eat more than I probably needed to. Because of this and how I dealt with food after univeristy (and starting a desk job) I ended up overweight. Since August 2013, I’ve been trying to lose weight and get my BMI down to a healthy range. In the middle of that, I got pregnant and had Jaxon. Since 2014, I’ve been trying to work on getting healthy. Some of this blog is about that.
I love writing and started my own business around a year ago as a Social Media Consultant and Virtual Assistant. My business is called Daisy Media.
This is Chris, he’s The Boy or That Boy as my Dad used to refer to him! We got married in 2007, became foster carers in 2011 and parents in 2014. Chris didn’t grow up in Bedford but he moved here for me and then for his job. He has wanderlust and loves to travel. He had a huge heart for young people and wants to see them (and me) achieve our best and reach for the stars. Chris has been wanting to change the world in whatever form that comes but currently he’s working as a web developer for a company in Milton Keynes.
Our Sidekick is now almost 21 and he came to live with us in October 2011. To begin with, it was a temporary measure but now he’s been with us since and is part of our random slightly disjointed “clan”. He moved out for a little while then came back again. He’s with us for a few more weeks then will be moving out.
The (Little) Boy
This is Jaxon. He’s our little boy. He’s almost 6 and creating havoc on a regular basis. He loves trains, cars and Lego. He goes to the local primary school and loves Maths and IT (just like his Daddy!)
You can keep up with our adventures by reading our Dear Jaxon posts.
The Littlest Member
In December 2019, we found out I was pregnant and we’re now excited for the arrival of our latest family member. In February 2020, following our 12-week scan, we let the family in on the surprise. Unlike Jaxon who went by Blueberry, this bump has been called Rex. It’s now Spring 2020 and we’re counting down the weeks and wondering how things will work in the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Why do I Write This Blog?
This blog started back in about 2007 as The Journal of A Rock Angel. Yes I have no idea where the name came from but it was a starting point. It’s grown and developed since then and changed names. It went from that to The Scribbles of GirltaristHan, to Hannah Says and then Han Plans as it is now. I’m sure there were other interpretations too.
