Hi there,

I am Susan and I am mama to Alex (4) and Emma (2) and wife to my long-suffering husband, Michael. In 2010 we left Ireland and moved to Cyprus for 12 months. Nearly 7 years later and it doesn’t look like we will be going anywhere any time soon!

I am an extended breastfeeder, cosleeper, foodie, reader and beach lover. I love to swear (but keep it to a minimum here), I am outspoken about topics I am passionate about and I suffer with several chronic illnesses, including fibromyalgia, chronic pain and Hashimoto’s disease. I am a mental health nurse with a passion for dementia care and I love educating people and helping them to learn more and form new opinions on taboo subjects, such as extended breastfeeding. I am a firm believer that we must talk about topics that make us uncomfortable. 

Want to say hello? You can email me at susan (at) youaremysunshine (dot) me
