Helen P, that’s me…. I am a married mum of three awesome (I think so anyway) kids and a dog (also awesome).  I love family life and sharing moments of this with you.

My blog is about my family, our lives, parenting, what we get up to, homeschooling, cooking recipes, crafts, nonsense, hacks, odd thoughts, ramblings, yummy food, simple ideas, style, travel, wants, dreams and sharing some positivity ….. all sorts really!

You will probably find the better photo’s on instagram and pinterest, especially if the house is tidy, but let’s face it, this is real life.  Real life means there are times of fun, quiet, mess and tidy. Life is supposed to be fun.  My dad used to say life is not a dress rehearsal.  So with that in mind, live life, have fun, make the most of it.

You will see pictures that aren’t perfect, I don’t always have make up on, nor do we as a family avoid muck and mess.

We love being outside.  We love doing different activities.  We love cuddles.  We love fun. We love happiness and we choose happy!!

Then there is Mr P….. he manages to get in a few more photos than me!  A great husband and great dad.  He likes to take the kids out, have fun and enjoys BBQ’s, coffee & beer.

Abi, she’s 11 and has such a personality, she’s witty, thoughtful, creative, very caring and loving.  She can mostly be found climbing or being upside down with gymnastics.

Jess is a gentle, very funny, talkative 5 year old who is also a firecracker and is forever skipping and living life in the fun zone.

Adam is 2 and an absolute bundle of joy. He is such a happy boy who is developing such a great personality alongside his sisters.

We as a family up until recently had an old dog.  She was white around her face but old age recently got the better of her so we said our goodbyes and set her spirit free with love.  It’s still too raw and for now I’m keeping the beautiful pictures of our beautiful girl here.pictures of our dog.
