About Me


Hello! I’m Stephanie Couch (Stevie), I’m Mum to two Tweens Fin born in July 2004, and Harley born in February 2006. The boys and I live with my long suffering and incredibly patient partner Simon.


Suffering that has included me giving him food poisoning … it was years ago and I am sure at some point in the distant future he’ll stop reminding me about it and double checking that I’ve used a meat thermometer when cooking for him.


We are all very lucky to live in the gorgeous county where we were born – Cornwall. I know that’s pretty obvious with my blog name.




I started the A Cornish Mum blog in January 2015 and I write about pretty much anything under the sun! Parenting a Tween and almost Teen, lifestyle, Type 1 Diabetes, Cornwall, Travel and DIY. but if it interests me then it is likely to crop up.


You are likely to see a lot of jealousy inducing photos of Cornwall on my blog, and I would request that you try not to hate me too much for this, and the fact that my children have lie ins. If it makes you feel any better, they’re both impossible to wake up for school and one of them wakes like a bear with a sore head – growling included.




As I’ve said above, my blog covers most subjects – including Type 1 Diabetes as my eldest son has lived with this since he was 5 years old. Type 1 isn’t always an easy beast to tame and try and live with, but we’re determined that he’ll live as ‘normal’ a life as possible and Type 1 won’t win.


We are always happy to work with brands, so long as they fit well with our family and accept that I always disclose. You can visit my Work with Me page for more information on how we can work together.
