Writing an ‘about me’ page has never been something I’m very good at. When we meet someone new we ask them fairly non-invasive, bog standard questions. What’s your name? Where are you from? What do you do?
So let’s start there.
I’m Dina, a thirty-something, Mum of one living in a small town in Ireland. I live with my husband-to-be Shane (I hate the word ‘fiancé’), our son Arthur and our (land-shark) German Shepherd puppy, Nell.
Writing has always been my ‘thing’. Whether it’s journals, letters, blog posts or just stuff and things. Growing up I wanted to have a career based in writing. That hasn’t happened yet, but I still walk around everyday ‘writing in my head’. I write about my life, I write about the things I love, I write about the bizarre shit that goes on in my head. I write about motherhood, mental health and other things that begin with the letter ‘m’.
Writing is therapy for me. It’s not always something I want to do. It’s not always easy. It can be emotional and hard and draining. But I love it. So that’s me. If you want to find out more I suppose that’s what this blog is for. Welcome to my messy little corner of the internet.
