Hi, I’m Susie, founder of So Happy In Town, aka S.H.I.T.
In my previous life, I worked on the trading floor in the City, and really embraced the work hard, play hard thing. I went to the best London bars and restaurants, and had an awful lot of fun.
I then decided that this corporate life had served me well, but I wanted to teach, and swapped bankers for primary children. Still not sure who is easier to manage.
Then Mr S.H.I.T. and I were lucky enough to have our first baby ten years ago, and we now have three amazing children, the little S.H.I.T.s. We still live in London and, as a family, we really are so happy in town.
But while we are very happy, it’s not all glowing rosy cheeks, as we skip through the streets of London, holding hands, and reveling in the wonderment of it all.
It’s hard at times and #shit happens. Good shit and bad shit. Funny shit and not so funny shit. And that’s life.
This blog is for all of you out there who love living in town. You know it’s not always a bed of sweet-smelling roses (in fact sweet-smelling doesn’t often come into it) but you want to go out and enjoy what’s on offer, as a parent, and also as you, the individual you still are.
So I hope you enjoy sharing the highs and lows with me, and keep being forever S.H.I.T.
