About

Hello! My name is Eleni and I am Georgie’s mummy. I was born and raised in London where I enjoyed a loving and slightly nomadic childhood. According to my dad every home was a project so my sister and I grew up surrounded by rolls of wallpaper and stacks of bricks. My favourite space we called home was the attic of a retirement home my parents ran. When I was ten years old, my parents, sister, baby brother and I finally settled down when we moved to Cyprus. Once here, three more siblings were added to our family and we created a noisy but beautiful life on the sunny Mediterranean island. I live in Nicosia with handsome papa and our two beautiful boys, Georgie and James.

Blog

This blog was created in 2011 when I made the big decision to quit my job as a feature writer for a newspaper in Nicosia and become a stay-at-home mummy. In the beginning I considered this blog to be a space where I could ‘store’ memories of Georgie and my life as a new mother. Georgie’s Mummy was about me and just for me.

As my boy grew and changed with each passing day, I was faced with how complicated, intense, satisfying, terrifying and exciting motherhood can be. Unexpectedly, it fascinated me and still does. Every aspect of it. At first, I took a great interest in sleeping and eating habits as Georgie was a ‘restless’ baby. I pored over books and blogs taking inspiration from mothers all around the world, going through my own trials and errors and eventually writing about my experiences which were warmly welcomed, especially by the local community of mothers. I love researching and writing about things that can bring happiness, health and peace to my life and hope, through this blog, to do the same for others.

There’s a mixture of lifestyle topics on this blog. Stuff that interests me and I feel the need to occasionally tell people about. Movies, books, music, documentaries and current issues all pop up from time to time. I like to spend my time writing, reading, taking photos, cooking, baking and keeping up with Georgie. I document as much as I can, adding it to this little corner of the internet. Thank you for stopping by!

    Hi–I saw your comment on my blog, which you said you found because you were looking for information about homeschooling in Cyprus. Are you interested in joining an e-mail list (at yahoogroups) on the topic? It’s not usually very busy, but there are other people there with young children and/or with children in school but who are interested in homeschooling…
