Allow me to introduce myself.
My name is Susan, a 45 year old Mum of 3 boys and wife to my childhood sweetheart.
Having worked in the Film and TV industry for over 15 years, I am currently enjoying a slower lifestyle. With camera in hand I am taking lots of photos, documenting on my blog, whilst savouring the simple comforts.
My husband and I are in our mid 40s, our boys are now aged 14, 20 and 23 and we find ourselves in unknown terratory. Our eldest 2 are grown up and starting their own journey in the world. More often than not, we now find ourselves having adventures with just 1 child which is really weird when you are used to going out as a family of 5.
We also have 2 labrador retrievers. Our lovely Becks is almost 13 and still loving life albeit a lot slower. In 2019 we welcomed Reggie the yellow labrador puppy to the family. He has been a hurricane of energy and turned our world upside down. He is very settled into life, but without a doubt is the clown of the family (with his own Instagram account).
I make no secret in my blog about the challenges I have been facing with my Health. They have caused me to really look at the balance in my life and making changes accordingly. Writing about my health has been hard, but also healing for me. By sharing my health journey, I will hopefully reach out to others and inspire them.
This blog is my space in the world, where I can be honest and raw and with any luck inspire someone in the world.
Film and TV
I have an abiding love for the Film and TV industry. I have over 15 years experience of working in the industry in different areas, each with its own demands and rewards.
My experience ranges from working as a Professional Makeup Artist, Casting Mum to my youngest son, who is a working actor, Chaperoning for TV and Film, working as an Agent for a talent agency and even appearing in the odd production myself.
My passion for this industry will continue in the future within my blog and travels. Who knows what is next.
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
