I'm married to Luke and mum to two children, Eden and Asher. I work from home as a freelance dietitian and sports nutritionist. Deciding to go self-employed was one of the best decisions I've ever made and the flexibility fits perfectly with raising a family. More recently, we've begun our journey into home education, which is very exciting for us! 

My blog started out a number of years ago now, before the kids were born, about us as a normal family doing 'life'. In those early days, our growing activities down the allotment was one of the most common things I wrote about.

Then the kids came along. 

When I first had Eden I was stuck for activities to aid her learning and development, and through blogging I've found that there's loads of talented Mummies out there with brilliant ideas. I like to think that my blog can inspire my own circle of friends with fun and simple ideas that they can do at home with their babies and toddlers.

As a family we love being outdoors, our house overlooks fields towards Clent Hills, and I enjoy running when I find the opportunties (the intention is always there!) One day soon I'd like to get back into triathlon. I also love taking photos and capturing moments in life.

At the time of writing this, our next big adventure officially begins next week, when instead of Eden starting school, she will officially begin (although actually not a lot will change) home education.

I hope you enjoy reading the blog and do feel free to leave me a comment with your thoughts.
