My story

mumwhatelse-aboutHi, and welcome to my blog.

My name is Francesca, an Italian mum of two little boys, 1 and 3 years old and we are leaving in London.

What else? 

I was a TV producer when I was in Italy and now, as a stay-at-home mum, I find myself spending my days caring for children, home, trying recipes, fighting against tiredness and loneliness. I do not hide it, there are times when I feel like a desperate housewife, and so I think about it, but was I the one who faced life with high work pressure and responsibilities? I enjoyed my job and I sacrificed a lot of myself.

It seems long a time ago.

I did not really have a mummy model, so I never thought of myself as a devoted mother to her children and her family. But I find myself now in a country not mine.

So I went to study English and to practice writing for the exam, and I had the idea of a blog in English, a good excuse to practice. And so I started. I have never thought that I would have liked so much blogging.

Then I paused, I did not write for a while, because I needed to understand where this blog would take me.


About this blog

Mum what else is a bilingual blog and it is primarily about the story of an expat family, with lots of information if you want to move here. You will also find some tips for visiting London: secret spots, where to eat, itineraries and kids-friendly places.

This is also my place where I share all the things I love like, in random order, baking, ballet, graphics, series, digital world, video and photography.

In the blog there is also a section dedicated to the digital world, with tips on how to make the best use of technology in everyday life.

I have a lot of new ideas in mind, I hope I can carry forward, between the change of a nappy and a other.

Besides my blog, I’m very active on the Instagram , where my online journey actually began.

Whatever brought you to my website, welcome!


Francesca X
