What’s It All About, Lorna?

Bubble tea and me on honeymoon in Barcelona. Neil was there, too.

I’m updating my About section on my blog, and in doing so realized I haven’t really introduced myself over here, either.


I started blogging in 2010.

I’ve always written about my life as a disabled person. And now I write about what it’s like to be a disabled mother.

Back in 2010, I had just moved in with my boyfriend, and I wanted to write from the perspective of a youngish, funny, disabled person in a relationship and living in not the most accessible city in the world.

I moved to Scotland from New York when I was 12. I’ve always had a weird relationship with both places and as such, fit in nowhere.

Also. My boyfriend has become my husband and we’ve made a human. I am a parent who blogs, but not a Mummy blogger. For starters, I don’t complain about my husband (that much), wine gives my heartburn, and I actually like my kid.

I appreciate everyone who reads me, but I love connecting with other sarcastic souls and disabled bloggers.

I am a mother who drinks and swears and tells her kid the truth. I’m also her soft place to fall/climb.

I love my husband like no one else, even when he annoys the shit out of me. Sometimes because he annoys the shit out of me.

These days, the three of us live in a medium-sized house in the country. I miss the city. But missing places and people is not a new concept for me. Working on it.

I also have anxiety issues, but I’m working on those, too.

I’ve been trying to blog more consistently and connect with people that don’t live in my house with me. Hi.

On this blog you will find musings and hopefully full sentences on all of the above, weird list posts, family flashbacks. And reading updates.

I have some blogging advice over here and reflected on 8 years of blogging over here.
