About Me



Hi, I’m Charlotte, the ‘Distressed Housewife’.  I’m a thirty-six year old wife and mother of three boisterous boys aged eight, four and two years.  I’ve left my former career as an English teacher to concentrate on motherhood and freelance writing.  If I’m honest, though, I also devote quite a lot of time to blogging, tweeting and drinking wine, too.

I’m more of a ‘Slummy Mummy’ than a ‘Stepford Wife’; I’m not naturally gifted in all things domestic and find the juggling act of kids, husband and work sometimes stressful but more often amusing which is why I’ve created this blog.

If you like what you read you can automatically receive every post by subscribing in the sidebar on the main page.  Alternatively, you can follow me on Twitter @distressedhwife to read about even more of my shortcomings, just in snippet form.

Thanks for reading; I really hope my blog makes you smile and brightens your day, even by just a smidgeon.  If it does, please leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you 🙂
