About Me

Cat Parrott Profile PictureI’m a 34 year old married mother of two, living in Birmingham. After many years as an NHS Project Manager I am now working as a Freelance writer, Social Media Consultant and Blogger while juggling enthusiastic toddler T and his five year old brother E.

I started this blog while I was on maternity leave after having T in an effort to record the things we got up to and to make sure I make the most of my ‘yellow days’, the days when I got time to do something beyond the normal eat/wash/feed/sleep cycle.

Over time it’s grown to include all aspects of parenting and family life along with some fab competitions and recipes.

I hope you enjoy it. Please feel free to leave comments as I’d love to hear what everyone else does on their ‘yellow days’.

You can also follow me on twitter, pinterest, via my Google Profile+ or like the Facebook page.

      Me too! Love the name and your writing. I’m testing out a site for a friend who I thought you may be interested in on the Choosing Hapiness subject. It’s not live yet but do message me if you are interested. I’ve found it really interesting, you get a task each day. Mine yesterday was ‘no moaning day’. I failed miserably! Today it’s ‘make contact with a new person’. So here I am doing it. Hello!

    Stopping by from the A-Z Challenge.

    I love your concept of yellow days and blogging and the interaction with others is a great way to make those days a little brighter.
