This Welsh Mother Meets is an opportunity for us to point you in the direction of someone great, someone we think you will love.
Ruth Bullions is one of those women who looks a) effortlessly beautiful b) Like she has ALL her shiz together.
We both hail from the same small Mid-Wales town, where I went to school with her younger, equally talented sister, Rhian. Over the years I have online stalked her, while she parents children, forged a career and bossed creative sideline businesses like it ain’t no thing. Basically, she’s girl crush fodder.
In recent times she has launched her own blog & started a clothing business for Welsh Mammy’s (Ahem, you may have seen me talking selfies and rocking one of her tee’s). For the launch day of this site I wanted to shine a glaring light on her & all her online glory in the hopes that you can get to know more about who she is? what she does? and believe me, you will soon be part of the fan club.
So Who is she?
Ruth Bullions is a Multi -Tasker. She writes her own blog Real Life Mummy & she recently founded welsh apparel site Pethau Mam. Because this isn’t enough to keep her busy she also dabbles in interiors & is Mum to two busy boys, a baby girl, and an almost teenage step daughter.
Where is she from?
The bright lights of Betws, Ammanford with her husband and four kids, 2 cats and a few fish.
What does she do?
Aside from the Mothering, the blogging AND the clothing biz, Ruth is a Teacher of Art, Design & Technology. Amongst all that other stuff she manages to show up as a Governor at two primary schools, and make the odd cake now and again for Bluebell Cake House. Oh, and she also volunteers at her son’s Cricket Club. (She secretly thinks she may be doing a rubbish job on the Wife front – But we all of beg to differ).
We asked Ruth
What is your favourite place in Wales?
My favourite place is Wattick beach near Dale. I grew up going on camping holidays to Pembrokeshire, but I haven’t been there for around 20 years! It is my dream destination. Smooth sand, red rock, sea like a bath. One day I will get round to finding the secret path that leads to the secluded beach. I’ll take my children and just soak up the old memories, while making new ones.
What are your favourite things to do?
I LOVE a day out. Last year I signed up to the National Trust, and it is well worth doing. We live close to Llandeilo, where you can find Newton House and Dinefwr Park. There’s long walks to the castle, deer roaming around, activities for the children to take part in, and the house is set up so that kids can pick things up, try things on, and sit on the furniture. It’s so easy to relax there, and educational too. A day out isn’t complete without a tea room pit stop too for either lunch or a cuppa and cake – it’s got to be done! We recently visited Powis Castle near Welshpool and loved every bit of it (and every bite of cake!).
