Raising daughters in London armed with a sense of humour, wanderlust & a blog. Wishes babies came with a manual. www.thetantrumtimes.com
Lucianne Lewis lives in South East London and is a mum to two spirited, little girls. She believes that trying to see the funny side is the best way to parent, although admits it doesn’t always work at the time. She started writing to overcome the loneliness of being a stay at home mum and found other people enjoyed her writing so now describes herself as a writer. She hopes that her no nonsense blogs about the often hilarious, occasionally irritating but always wonderful (yeah right) world of parenting, will make other parents laugh at their own bonkers parenting situation. Before having children she worked in Marketing in London and New York and in-between pregnancies she retrained with Digital Mums and is now a social media strategist. She loves travelling, even with the kids, hates craft and outsources it whenever possible and is constantly trying new fads to get rid of her postpartum baby paunch.
I used to think being dumped was the worst thing in the world, aside from torture, nuclear war and Brexit. I mean the worst that could actually affect my life. Having children made me so relieved that I wouldn't ever have to go through those dark post break up days again.
Airports bring out the worst in people and in a few weeks Britain's airports will be overrun with fraught parents just like us. I am keen not to have a repeat of last summer's jaunt through Gatwick where I handed out painfully British sorrys like confetti which left me seething over what I should have said.
