What is OddHogg all about?
OddHogg started in 2016 as an outlet for when I was at home after the birth of my first son. At the time I didn’t realise what it would become, and how much it would mean to me. Over the last few years it has become a huge part of our lives, allowing me to document my second pregnancy and providing me with a job that enables me to spend my days at home with my children.
OddHogg has grown as our family grew, and the content has matured with it. I like to document our lives as a family, my struggles and successes with type 1 diabetes and capture the moments as we travel in the UK and around the world.
I am Kim, the person who writes the blog and the woman behind the camera. I have type 1 diabetes and use an insulin pump and flash glucose monitor to try and keep myself as healthy as possible. I spend my days with my two boys, balancing mum life with working from home. Before I had children I worked in the oil and gas industry as a pressure systems integrity engineer, so this has been a weird and wonderful step into completely unchartered territory for me – and I’m loving every minute.
When I’m not working I love spending time with my family best. We have been doing our best to sample all of the cake shops around town. I have a very sweet tooth and can’t turn down a sweetie or hot chocolate no matter how hard I try! I love to read but never seem to find enough time for this these days.
