Hi and welcome to my blog! I’m Fateem, the writer behind The Ninja’s Tale blog and live in the West Midlands, UK.  I’m a married mum raising two multiracial, bilingual, spirited and fun kids. I’m also an amateur blogger, longtime crafter, yarn addict curator and have a love for photography.

Originally from Tanzania, I’ve been living in the UK since February 2010. Mr Ninja & I have been married since February 2012 and we became parents for the first time in March 2013 to a beautiful little princess, Miss A (who’s adamant that she’s a Queen!). It was the most happiest day of our lives and yet the scariest. Our handsome little man, Master M, was born in April 2015. Our world has changed completely with the coming of these two precious souls into our lives. Our kitties, Simba and Sula, joined our family in September 2016.

The Ninja’s Tale is where I will be blogging about the things that we get up to, about parenting and life in general (including our joys and challenges as a multicultural family), crafting  and my attempt at using my DSLR (Nikon D7100) in manual mode.

I’d love to hear from you whether you’ve got any comments, questions, suggestions or anything else that you’d like to share.
