About Me

About me

Hi! I'm Laura, I'm 36 years old and live in the East Midlands with my little family. I'm a former marketing girl with a degree in Media Production and New Media. I started my blog initially to have something to look back on with these crazy first years of motherhood and it's since become so much more. My blog is a little slice of me, I love it and it has really helped me find myself again since being a bit lost as a sudden grown up and parent! My main focus is the family and home.

I'm not at all biased but I do have the most amazing beautiful and clever children in the entire universe, Alf & Soph. They are a crazy double act and are at peace or war with little in between. We live a manic fun packed life with heaps of cuddles, days out and silliness. Alf is nine this year and Soph has just turned six, the years are flying by! We have a dog called Peg that thinks she is a cat, as well as three actual cats Teddy, Sonny & Dexter. 

As well as my blog, I also love all kinds of music and art and I published my first children;s book last year with more on the way. I design cards for Thortful, create colouring books and sell artwork on Etsy, I like to keep busy! Alf has the very best imagination and helps me every step of the way coming up with characters, stories and even design ideas. I love writing about, reviewing and photographing everything we come across and spend lots of my 'me time' on here tapping away or getting creative. 

I hope you enjoy reading my blog and seeing the fun we have.
