Welcome to Blissful Mum!
My name is Helen and I'd love you to join me as I begin my new venture setting up my fledgling cake design and vintage china hire business. Following a busy banking career, I'm now enjoying a more creative and fulfilling side to life at home, looking after my two gorgeous little boys, baby girl and husband.
As an aspiring mumpreneur, keen crafter, home designer (and someone who cannot sit still for five minutes!), this is the beginning of a new chapter for me. So I'm starting by creating this blog - a journal where I can chat about life, develop my business ideas and share inspiration - hope you enjoy!

Since 14th June, when I made my first little outing into the world of blogging, I’ve discovered a whole new online life. Up until then I’d only really used the computer for the odd bit of internet shopping and occasional … Continue reading
Just a short post today but here’s my entry for The Gallery run by Tara over at Sticky Fingers. This week’s theme is Nature. What a great opportunity to go for a walk in the countryside with the boys, enjoy … Continue reading
Day Street, Barnsley, South Yorkshire, is a place I hold very dear. It’s where my dad and my auntie grew up and was the home of my grandparents, Mary and Ronnie. Sadly my granddad died just a month or so … Continue reading
