About Me

“What it’s like to be a parent: It’s one of the hardest things you’ll ever do but in exchange it teaches you the meaning of unconditional love.” ― Nicholas SparksThe Wedding

UnruffledMum was launched as new in 2016 to enable likeminded parents, to gain an insight into another approach to parenting, gain plenty of activity ideas and follow our journey. If you love reading about things to keep little people entertained, crafts and art ideas along with the rural country side life you’ll feel right at home here. Of course I am still learning too, but love to share ideas as I discover them.

Me and AriellaThe blog initial started when I moved to London back in 2013 and was blogging under the name Citylivingsoul as a free spirit lady of leisure, then I had great fun blogging my pregnancy during 2014 – 2015 (you can follow my whole pregnancy series here) and after a small blip of down time I am back for good.

So who am I? Hi, I’m Rachael and I currently live in leafy green Surrey in England, with my daughter Ariella, my husband Jamie and our two flurry cats; Tiberius and Pandora. People say that I’m perpetually calm hence the name of the blog, it’s a bit of an in joke amongst friends but a handy skill to have when you are dealing with a crisis or toddler meltdown. I get to spend a lot of time day to day with Ariella which is a blessing – we enjoy coming up with activities and exploring the world together. I have a strong technological background having studied Computing at university, naturally I am an advocate for combing family life with the latest modern technology to make our lives as a family easier.
