My name is Madeleine and I am a blogger.   Writing Madeleine is my writing store; my collection of my words.  I also blog on parenting blogzine, Selfish Mother, and previously on Huff Post UK. 

I am a Yorkshire lass living on the other side of the Pennines in a little town called Newton-le-Willows.  I am married with two small children, who are very funny, mischievous little beings who bring a lot of joy and the occasional challenge.

I enjoy meeting people and having people in my life.  I have no fashion sense and I have a terrible habit of talking rubbish when I do meet new people.

I love lots of things – writing, watching films, rewinding films and watching them again. I love reading crime books. I love my family and my friends. I love fresh air, especially Yorkshire air. I love new socks, fresh bedding, and the sight of a sunset going down over a sea.  I think chocolate is the best thing known to woman.

Hates? I have no time for discrimination or prejudice. And I’m not a huge fan of big things i.e. Cruise liners, sky scrapers, or cooling towers (big things scare me 😉

So, welcome to my world, it’s nice to have you here and I hope you like what you read (or at least pass some time with a cup of tea).
