About Me

Hello there, lovely to see you, welcome to my blog.

I am a 30-something single mum to a spirited little, sorry, big boy of four (and a bit) years old. We live in the north-east of England which is not always as grim as you may have been led to believe. I blog about whatever happens to be going on in my life, so most posts are about things I get up to with my son; places we visit, things we make, the fun that we have.

Why ‘Toasting Marshmallows’? It came from a conversation I had about making the best of a bad situation, which is something I seem to be doing a lot of these days. I felt like I’d accidentally stumbled into hell, but the one good thing about bunking in with satan is that there is always somewhere to toast marshmallows. I’d like to say that the friend I was talking to was my best mate, or a good neighbour, even that nice lady from the corner shop. But it wasn’t. It was Trevor.

I love taking photo’s and occasionally they turn out alright. You can see a collection of them on my ‘366’ page, where I am attempting to take a photo for every day of the year. All photo’s on this blog are my own (unless otherwise stated). Please don’t use them without permission.

I am in the middle of my Day Zero project (if you don’t know what that is then do go and check it out) so if you can teach me a magic trick, contact juggling, recommend a book or help in any other way then please get in touch.

I can usually be found pottering around various other places on the web. Twitter is linked up at the top of the page, others to follow when I get them sorted out. I’m quite partial to a word game or two, so if you play Words With Friends or Scramble With Friends, I’m on there as ‘Words On Toast’. You can also find me on Draw Something. You should know, however, that I am rubbish at drawing and there is a very good reason my username is ‘I Draw Stick People’. Feel free to come and play any of them with me, it would be great if you could come back and say hello so I know who you are.

So that’s about it for now, I suspect this page will be tinkered with now and again to keep it up to date. If you would like to contact me, you can email hello(at)toastingmarshmallows(dot)co(dot)uk or give me a shout on Twitter.

Hope you enjoy mooching around my blog and come back for another visit soon.

    Hey Ria,

    Just found your blog. Nice to meet you. Which part of the North East are you from? I’m a Newcastle lass. Will be checking in and reading from time to time.
