About Me

Hi, I’m Fran

(aka The Yorkshire Bird)

I’m originally from Sheffield, but have been living in Edinburgh for the past 8 years. I’ve also lived in Manchester and Melbourne over the years, but haven’t managed to get rid of my Yorkshire accent!

I blog and share content over on my Instagram that champions resilience, because I think it’s inevitable that we’ll face periods of change in our lives. Some change is planned, some isn’t, and some will definitely knock us for six.

I felt extremely lost when my marriage began to fall apart around 5 years ago. That relationship had been part of my life for almost a decade, and I didn’t know who I was without it. It took me a couple of years just to realise that getting a divorce was what I wanted. I was too unhappy not to walk away, and although that change was scary at the time, it proved to be a massive turning point in my life.

Elements of what I share on this blog are things that I did to guide myself out of the fog that I felt like I was in during that time. They’re lessons I’ve learnt, words I wish I’d heard, and practical advice straight from my own experience.

I want to empower you to get back up and get what you want out of life after a massive period of change. Because I’ve been there, and I want to help you to develop the resilience to face what your going through now, and anything else that life throws at you in future.

So if you want everyday resilience tips shared with kindness and love, you’re in the right place.

Come say hello to me on Instagram & we can be friends!
