Who Is Crazy Purple Mama?

Hello and welcome to the Crazy Purple Mama blog.

My name is Tanya, I’m a woman of a certain age with a serious coffee addiction. I am married to a man I have known virtually all my life ~ not joking, we met when I was 4 and he was 5, we were born 11 months apart. We were married when both 24 years old and together have three daughters and two dogs.

This blog is a historical log of who I am, what I like and what I am doing or feeling at the time of writing. I may include issues regarding my physical and mental health, along with the antics of my dogs and family.

I’m a passionate animal lover, chocoholic, and cake lover, very amateur photographer (I have a separate photography blog here). A Terry Pratchett nerd ~ after scouring book stores far and wide have completed my Discworld collection along with his other works. PLUS in case you missed it, a consumer of vast amounts of coffee, my day doesn’t start until I have necked my three buckets of coffee every morning ~ with the odd mug thereafter administered intermittently throughout the day.


As the great late Terry Pratchett wrote. “The whole of life is just like watching a film. Only it’s as though you always get in ten minutes after the big picture has started, and no-one will tell you the plot, so you have to work it out all yourself from the clues.”

So why not grab a cuppa when you have a few spare moments and join me.
