And I think, that’s because it’s not like there’s much I want to say in the way of something “new”.
Ummm….may I suggest starting off by reading about me and this blog, perhaps? S’ok, click the link; it’ll open in a new window. Then you can come right back.
This is my turf. I’m not starting afresh; there is no doing that in life, as far as I’m concerned. However, I think this is “turning a corner”. It’s not like I’m done being a mom (I still have 2 kiddos, after all), but I’m done with the “mummy” title. I don’t think it was ever me in the first place, and funnily enough I’ve had the internet handle “cosmicgirlie” for about 15 years now. She’s WAY more familiar than MBM, and also, she’s barely changed.
So it made sense that the change in direction should actually just “pick up where I left off”, in every way.
I’ll still write the same sort of stuff (it’s my life, after all, as it’s happening). And I’ll still spout the same old shit (as the tagline suggests – the stuff which so few others seem to want to say on their own blog).
Will I announce this blog to the sound of blaring trumpets and ticker-tape and balloons and a fuck-ton of READ ME READ ME OMFG PLEASE READ ME? No. Partly because I HATE balloons, but mostly because that’s not my style. As ever, I write here for me, to keep me sane, to stop the build-up, to stop me from pretty much losing my fucking marbles. I’m aware a tiny number of people read, which is really lovely! (No idea why they do, but hey-ho, it’s nice to know all the same.)
Things like Silent Sunday and Blognonymous will OBVIOUSLY still happen (with a new badge for Silent Sunday). The Linky will run across the two blogs for a few months I think, maybe, with some kind of NEW BLOG KLAXON to let people know that it will stop at some point. MBM will always be there, and when I’ve finished tweaking here (whenever that happens), then MBM will be archived over here too.
MBM will stay close, but very dormant.
cosmicgirlie, as always, is alive and kicking.
Love the clean look. When I first saw Sunday Sunday and Mocha Beanie Mummy, I imagined MBM as some middle-class white NCT yummy mummy who spends her days drinking coffee (pretty much my worst type of woman), so I was pleasantly surprised to discover you and your blog are not that at all. This blog will stop people like me getting the wrong picture in our heads!
BWAH HAH HAH AHAHHHHHH!!!!!!!
Oh god I can't stand them either. Now I REALLY know I've done the right thing!! 😀
I love it, feels more like you for sure x
Right? I feel like I removed some hideous mask or something. 🙂 x
Oh THIS is nice. I like it here.
Right? Suddenly things feel a little more comfy, no? 😉

Ah, you thought you could move house and me not find out. [Insert evil laugh here]
Why do I read you?
There's all the stuff about trying to keep it real; and saying things others can't or won't say…all of that. In the main, I read you Jay because you make it seem alright to be us. No matter how fucked up or not that might be.

Okay… I just had to comment even though you can't stand middle class white women, cos that it me, however, I am definitely NOT a yummy mummy!! :). I do originate from New Zealand….. just in case you check out where I actually live! Nice to meet you, Jay…. I am hanging around for a while.
I love it. And I love you. That is all x
