Hello! I am Steph, wife to Phil, and Mummy to Caide (Oct 2016) and twins Linden and Theo (Sep 2018). No, they’re not identical, yes I’ve got my hands full.

I also have anxiety. Lots and lots of anxiety. I always have and I probably always will. I’ve come to be ok with that. Most of the time. It’s part of who I am. It makes me the mother that I am. It’s a journey I felt I needed to write down somewhere, to get it out of my head. So here it is.

The name for the blog came from my Gran’s favourite story about me. She’ll tell anyone who’ll listen about how I used to run up and down her (low) windowsill calling myself Mousy Gordon (my maiden name). Since mice are small and timid, as am I, it seemed a good name.

Hope you enjoy reading x
