Thanks for clicking through to find out more about Bumbles of Rice.
I’m Sinéad, I’ve been blogging here on Bumbles of Rice since June 2012. I’m a mum of three, two boys (aged 8 and 6) and a girl (aged 3), and I live in Co. Wexford, Ireland. I’m a working mum, I spend my time commuting, cooking, wiping noses, mopping up spills and ‘adventuring’. Then, when they’re all asleep I write about it here.
Bumbles of Rice started out as a food blog but it’s evolved now to include posts about everyday life with kids, things that annoy me, daytrips, things I love, serious parenting topics and reviews as well as sharing some advice that I’ve learned along the way.
I love to cook and am slightly (very) food obsessed. Since I work and commute time is scarce so I try to fill my freezer with good homemade food for dinners and home-baked treats for the kids’ lunchboxes, if they last that long. My food philosophy (or maybe philosophy sounds fairly high-faluting) goes something like this:
I LOVE FOOD. I think about it nearly all the time and cannot understand the “food is fuel” believers. I love to eat out and get great joy out of a good meal and service to match. I love to cook but nothing too complicated, I’m a homecook, I cook to feed my young family. I have no formal training and my knife skills leave a lot to be desired. I shop in regular supermarkets and love a fancy treat but don’t spend all my time in gourmet shops. I love to try new recipes but rarely invent them myself. I am evangelical about not using jars when from scratch is easier but have (many) guilty pleasures. I share tips and recipes in my food category.
I really love to travel. Back in the olden days pre-kids it was all about the mini-break and the exotic adventure holidays, these days it’s all about the kids. We enjoy exploring new (buggy friendly if possible) places with the kids, the more “explorey” the better (for recent daytrips you could read this or this . We bring a picnic, collect sticks, jump in puddles and get some fresh air into our lungs while wearing the kids out. Win win. I also blog about holidays in Ireland (like here) and abroad (like here).
