Welcome to So Happy In Town / S.H.I.T., a place for parents and fellow middle agers out there who know that as much as everything can seem tickety boo and peachy sweet at times, at others it can seem like a double helping of shit has been royally dolloped all over the place.
And that’s why I founded this blog in 2016, to talk about just that – the good shit and the bad shit, the funny shit and the not so funny shit, with the main message being that we’re all in this together.
I live in London with my three children and my husband (aka Mr S.H.I.T.) and this blog talks about all things family and lifestyle: parenting issues, tweens, teens, mental health, marriage and the joys of middle age.
A passionate advocate for young people’s mental health, in 2019 I launched the S.H.I.T. Tee campaign, with the main message for young people being that it’s ok to feel shit, but it’s a lot more ok if you don’t feel alone.
Celebrities such as Simon Pegg, Sadie Frost, Joe Marler, Ray Winstone and Jodie Kidd have all offered their support, with thousands of readers buying T-shirts, tote bags and hoodies.
100% profit from every single sale goes to YoungMinds, raising an incredible £35,000 so far thanks to all the amazing support. And we’re still going strong.
So I hope you enjoy sharing the highs and lows with me, and keep being forever S.H.I.T. (sorry mum, there was an awful lot of shit going on there, I know!).
