Hi, thanks for finding my blog. My name is Georgina (always been a George) in my early 30’s, full time mamma to my gorgeous daughter Phoebe, who came into this world the morning of a beautiful New Moon, April 30th 2014. She has turned our world upside down and inside out on so many amazing levels. Our gorgeous girl Frankie has now arrived (10 days late) and was born on April 14th 2017, so now we are a family of four. We live in Exeter, which is where I grew up and almost after 10 years of traveling and working abroad decided to come home (2013) for my pregnancy and to raise our little girl close to family and friends. My partner aka Daddy Pig is also from the South West but Cornwall, Bude, so it’s not far away from his family.
We all love exploring the beauty that Devon & Cornwall has to offer and can often be found at the beach, on a woodland walk or even just at the Library. I’m a stay at home mum but not for long, as Phoebe will be starting nursery in Sep 06, which means I can get back into my Beauty Therapy & Massage work once again. I qualified as a Breastfeeding Peer supporter in 2015 and volunteer at a local Sure Start Children Centre, as those BF groups really helped me in my early BF days. I’m also an Independent Usborne Organiser – hosting book parties, selling Usborne children’s books. I’m starting to sound very busy, but I somehow manage to fit in another organisation myself and some other parents set up with our local Library, “Friends of Exeter Children’s Library” and I’m treasure on the committee.
So, I first started this blog to help me realise that I’m Not Just Phoebe’s mum…I’m much more than just a mamma. Not Just Phoebe is an open canvas where I will share mine and Phoebe’s Adventures and all that happens in between. I hope that by finally creating this blog I can get my creative juices flowing again and use it to share all the fun and exciting things me and Phoebe will create, bake, make and inspire others with our journey. I will write about normal parenting issues that aren’t all sugar coated, we all those have a crappy days and I believe by being an honest, open parent you will be a happier one.

George, Phoebe and Baby Frankie x
