My Life In 250-ish Words.

{I am going to attempt the Blog Every Day In May Challenge. Please don’t hold your breath… ;) }

I was born in Melbourne in 1980 and spent my first 18 years as an only child, until my sisterĀ  was born in 1998 and my brother in 2000. I was at my sisters birth, and to this day it remains one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen.

I was accepted into Melbourne University into Bachelor of Early Childhood Teaching, but deferred halfway through the first year and never went back. I started working in childcare at 19, and when I was 26 I got a job as a coordinator of a Before and After School Care program. This lead me to a job working for local council as a coordinator of two vacation care programs. I absolutely loved my job, until a change in management, where I became a victim of workplace bullying and ended up going on stress leave for four months whilst an investigation was carried out. On my return to work, I moved departments and worked for Local Laws as a coordinator of all the school crossings in the municipality until I fell pregnant. I resigned after two years on maternity leave, to be a stay at home mum.

In 2005 I married a man I’d been with for six years, despite the fact he was emotionally and verbally abusive. I left him after 10 months of marriage when I realised I could never bring children into such a volatile environment.

In December 2009 I met my now husband. We had a our daughter two months premature in October 2010, and were married in a surprise wedding at Milla’s first birthday party in November 2011. Then we lived happily ever after….
