Hi I’m Susie,

mum of two girls, black belt in Tae Kwon Do and a teacher of History to a whole host of secondary students for the past 15 years.

I am passionate about my family life and teaching youngsters to have the values that will see them develop and grow into happy, sensible and mature adults. I’d like to think that my ability to handle and control a class of thirty 16 year olds would have stood me in good stead for parenting my two girls aged 5 and 9 years old – Yep I was wrong with that one!

So why Suddenly Online? Well, it was born from the concept of loving spending time at home with my husband, kids and our dog (Elvis) and the day to day items that assist, bring fun and laughter to our household;  My hubby (a 3rd degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do) happens to run a graphic design company and as I love nice things (so does he) – it seemed the next logical step to go into business together and so SUE-DAN became Suddenly… and Suddenly Online was born!

From my school work, our girl’s school, my husband’s business, Brownies, Rainbows, swimming lessons, netball, guitar lessons, homework, running our own business – plus the fact we’re all Tae Kwon Do addicts and partake in various classes throughout the week, means that Family life for us is frenetically busy every day (I know I have missed something from this list!!)

However, despite how busy our lives are, I wouldn’t change a thing! Well, it might be nice to be able to go to the toilet in peace occasionally – I jest not!

So what will you find here?

  • Lots of fun tips for the home and good old family life
  • An account of the trials and tribulations of having two girls as they grow and develop into teenagers.
  • The odd tip here or there about handling teenagers (but hey – I totally get that kids at school are very different to kids at home!!!)
  • Things we find that enrich family life

I hope you enjoy reading, feel free to drop me a message and share your thoughts and experiences too!

Come back soon!
