I am Katy, a 33 year old mum of three. We always thought we were done at two but life doesn’t work like that does it? I am married to my best friend in the whole world, we met at university and have been together for 15 years now. I still can’t believe that actually, where on earth does the time go?? If you want to have a read of our love story then you’ll find a whole series to enjoy.

This blog follows the life of me and my little family. I write about lots of different things, from parenting, to mummy fashion, to sharing my favourite recipes. I am currently addicted to making videos and am building up my YouTube channel every day. Hop over and take a look if you want – I’d love if you subscribed while you are there 😉

I am a teacher by trade but for the past 7 years I have been a stay at home mum. Teaching is not how it used to be and so I couldn’t sit by and watch my family play second fiddle to my career.

I started writing this blog in May 2014 and quite quickly it became my obsession. It is now my job and I am eternally grateful to everyone who comes and reads my posts.

Do you know what is the best bit about blogging? You! I love connecting with my readers, sharing my life so they feel a little more normal. I have shared our milk allergy journey and our experience with toddler hypoglycemia and the messages I have been sent from other parents, thanking me for helping them in the same situation, really mean the world to me.

I’m not perfect but I love my family more than anything and I hope that when you read my posts you come away feeling a little inspired, maybe to try something new or just to embrace life and smile more.

Every day might not be happy but there is happy in every day.

Our family is made up of Mr F, my best friend and unofficial photographer! Gracie, age 6 going on 36, my little bookworm and know-it-all. Lils, age 4, with the cheekiest smile and the one who looks after us all. Wills, age 18 months, who is a proper cheeky monkey and makes us laugh every single day. And lastly, me, the organiser and doer of all the things!

So that is us! We live just north of London and spend our days being happy together, doing the things we love. I hope you will enjoy reading about everything we get up to!

Do you accept guest posts?

No, unfortunately not at this time.

Do you earn money from your blog?

Yes I do. I work with several brands on campaigns throughout the year. This can be through sponsored content or through product reviews. I will never write about something I do not believe in or something that does not fit with my family.

I also have adverts and affiliate links placed on the blog. This means if you click through certain links I will get a small percentage when you buy something from that website. Click here for my disclosure policy.

I would like to start a blog, do you have any advice?

I love to help others get started! Everyone should start a blog, it is amazing! I have a few posts from my Blog Clinic series or you can check out Live. Love. Blog, a blog I run with an amazing blogger friend, Aby.

  1. Dear Katy,

    I am a children’s book illustrator and I have recently launched a website and online shop selling original prints as gifts for children. As you have lots of contact with parents, I would appreciate any comments on my products and if available, the possibility to advertise/have a link on your site.

    Kind regards
    James Croft
