Hey, I’m Emma and I guess this is where I tell you a bit about me. Chances are if you’ve stumbled across this page it’s because you either know me or have found it because of a search engine leading you here. And if it’s the latter, you probably have an idea of what I’ll be blogging about.

So who am I? Right now, that is the $64 million dollar question.

At the start of 2020, I could have answered that in a heartbeat. And then COVID-19 entered my world. I went from being a 38 year old married, working mother of one to a 39 year old widowed, working mother of one. There is nothing like your entire world being turned upside down in the space of a month to make you reassess who you are.

What else can I tell you about me? On top of everything that the last year has thrown out me, I’ve recently turned 41 and have just watched my daughter start a new chapter in her life at secondary school. I’m a marketing manager and very proud of all I’ve achieved in my career to date. I’m a lifelong Jason Donovan fan (the ambition is still to marry him when I grow up!) I love a glass of gin or wine and catching up with friends. I’m also jokingly known as the #EverFabulousQueenOfTheWorldGOAT, but there are a whole host of stories behind that!

But above all else, I’m Emma. And while I don’t know how this blog will evolve, I thank you for reading as I try and figure out who I am, what comes next and where I’m going.

Yet for now, here’s my first post “COVID-19 and me”

  1. hi Emma
    So much love to you and Rebecca ❤️ Thank you for the rollercoaster you have taken us on with you over this past year and I know its going to be a very emotional time to come, with lots of very upsetting markers in time. I loved your Charlie very much and he helped me so much and taught me so much in the years we worked together. I am in tears, when I read your words, they are full of love, strength, truth and kindness even though you have been through so much… love for now x ❤️X please keep blogging….
    Love Dave Spade ♠️
