Welcome to Whinge Whinge Wine.

I’m Fran, and I am a stay-at-home-mum, blogger and freelance writer.

I currently live in Tonbridge in Kent with my husband and our two children; a very happy girly-girl aged 5 and a superhero, Lego and mud-loving boy aged 3.

We have a dog (who is a massive jerk) and a very large tropical fish tank. My hobbies include saying I’ll have an early night and pissing about on Facebook instead.

I love Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, tea, and snacking. I don’t get enough exercise or sleep.

This is my face:

About this blog

This blog started out life late in 2015 when I was very very tired and woe-is-me dealing with a colicky, refluxy baby and needed somewhere to pour my frustrations albeit in a humorous way.

Three years on, there is less vomit and slightly more sleep, but I’m still writing about my life with small children.

I have won awards, and even become an ambassador for Axkid, one of my favourite children’s brands. This blog has given me some brilliant opportunities, and I have met a lot of really awesome people. It has allowed me to work from home around my children and I can honestly say I love it!
