ABOUT ME – Marie Blake
Sporting the ‘mum bun’ since December 2017. I’m a first time mum, living in Norwich my boyfriend, a baby and three dogs.
I had great visions of spending my maternity leave baking, painting and completing my novel. Turns out I spend my days under a sea of babies and dogs, stopping the dogs from waking the baby with their barking and stopping the baby from eating dog food!
Originally from Bournemouth I trained as an actress and can still be found teaching small people performing arts. My Parenting and Lifestyle blog is over at www.tummy2mummy.net.

The most beautiful day I ever had…
One of my favourite cities in the world is New York, last year we got stuck in storm Stella. Manhattan covered in snow is just incredible – and very cold. I felt so lucky to see New York under a blanket of snow, and more snow…and more snow,
The most beautiful thing I have ever seen …
I watched Alan Rickman in a play a few years ago, the most beautiful live performance I have ever seen. Such an incredible actor. I feel so lucky to have watched him perform on stage.
The most beautiful thing I have ever owned …
My dogs, I have three shih tzus called Obi, Leia and Vader and to me they are just beautiful. Plus dogs are so loyal and loving – coming home to their excitement is a feeling that never gets old, it really is beautiful.
The most beautiful song I have ever heard …..
Sometimes the power of knowing the meaning of a song can change its purpose. I always enjoyed Gary Barlows ‘let me go’ but after discovering the song was written in the voice of his stillborn child, the song became something else entirely, I weep when I hear it now and I really hope it brings others comfort.
The most beautiful person I know is…..
My daughter Jasmine, beautiful to look at and she loves me unconditionally. Even when I haven’t brushed my hair or showered that day, she taught me a love I never even knew existed.
The most beautiful thing about me is……
My desire to see people succeed not fail!
