I’m Dauré, mum to two and wife to one. I live on the North Herts/Beds border and I’m currently on maternity leave from my job as a copywriter.

I studied journalism at uni and have worked for New Woman, John Lewis, Cambridge News, Drapers and now I work in the broadcast industry.

I’ve had two (embarrassingly bad) blogs before, but thought I’d start afresh this time to talk about the trials and tribulations of raising two kids while still doing what I love – writing. I’d love to create a little space where I can share memories and thoughts.

I can’t say that motherhood has been an easy journey for me and I’ve struggled to get going with it all, but I think with baby no.2 I’m getting a bit more confident. So this time around I want to throw something else into the mix so I have something a bit more stimulating than what to put in the packed lunch and not being late for baby classes going on in my life.

If you fancy having a natter you can find me on Instagram and Twitter, or drop me an email at daure@toastfortea.co.uk
