Born in ’66 when England won the World Cup, when Mary Quant was introducing skirts that barely covered your backside and when the Beatles and The Rolling Stones were competing for the Number One spot. I grew up, in and out and around London.

Mum of four; two born from an Italian marriage and 19 years in Italy and twin girls born in Ol’ Blighty in 2008 by an Englishman who I’m proud to call my partner, my soul mate, the love of my life. I’m also a nanna, to darling Gracey born in Italy.

Life has led me down an interesting and unsuspected path and wherever I thought I was going, I always ended up somewhere else doing something different to what I had originally planned! At times fun, at times trying, and sometimes downright frustrating! However I’m here to tell the tale and share the goings on in my hectic little life,

I started blogging in January 2010 as a way to improve my writing skills and keep myself busy whilst being a SAHM. In my first year I learnt a lot, I met many fabulous people on my same wave length. One of my posts was chosen for the WordPress Freshly Pressed page – a massive honour and one that generated over 1700 hits in one day! And on the forum of bloggers, British Mummy Bloggers, I was nominated for Freshest Voice of 2010, another enormous achievement of which I am immensley proud. Watch this space for further developments 🙂

I hope Mari’s World is a good read for you and please leave a comment as they make my day.

    Hi Mari- enjoyed the blog. Would you be interested in a copy of my book, “Raising Able: how chores cultivate capable young people” to review?

    You might get some good ideas for your twins and family chores.

    I could send you an electronic copy.
    let me know if you’re interested.
