Hello. Thanks for popping over to my blog today.  My name is Tanya, I am a lucky wife and a mum to 3 gorgeous boys and 1 beautiful little girl. I love to write about family life, our adventures (good and bad), days out, crafts and cooking.

My little girl is my beautiful granddaughter (she is my stepsons little girl, from hubby's first marriage) - we are her full legal guardians.  She is 4 this month.

My boys: Liam is 16, he's just finished his GCSEs and looking to start college - he's also got himself a part-time job. Lewis is 13 and your typical teenager, he loves school and has started to enjoy cycling. Jacob is 6 and he is a cheeky little boy that loves school and loves his swimming classes.


I love to keep busy!

I work from home as a Project Manager and I get to travel Europe on business a few times a year.  Also, I love to blog, it means I get to write! I've had a love and compulsion to write since I was a teenager and blogging fulfills that urge and desire.

Blogging allows me to creatively express myself!

My favourite thing to do is to spend time with my hubby and the kids.  We live on the beautiful East Anglian coast and love to get outdoors taking the kids and the dogs out, discovering new places and adventures. Anywhere were we can let the dogs run free and the kids can collect sticks and anything else they find interesting, is perfect.

We have 2 dogs, Harvey our little old man, he's 10 and rather grumpy at times - don't wake him whatever you do. Poppy is our 1-year-old beagle, she is nuts but completely adorable - she gets away with so much! We also we have two very old cats (both are 19). And the latest edition is our bearded dragon called Shadow.
