About Me

Me & Daisy…

  Firstly, thank you for finding me and my blog!

  I am a mum of two beautiful children (aged 4 and 1) and have two fantastic stepsons (aged 11 and 8) so to say we have a busy household is an understatement! Family life is the most important thing to me. Being a  mummy and spending time with my gorgeous husband and children, is the most precious gift I could have ever been given.

I have learnt that in life, a lot of things are limited. Apart from love. Which can grow. Infinitely.

Living in Dorset, I was a teacher for 15 years: it was a job which I absolutely loved. Yes, there are many issues within the politics of education but ultimately, I entered into teaching because I love working with children. Seeing the look on a child’s face when it ‘clicks’ or when the light bulb moment finally appears, is one to cherish, knowing that you helped that child on their journey. I would love to think that I have had an impact and made a lasting impression on at least one child that I have taught and that they think of me when they are older and look back on their time at school.  Then I would know I had succeeded.

However, I have since had a major career change. I now work from home as a Social Media Marketing and Content Manager. I also tutor children on a 1:1 basis in English and Maths. I adore my new life. I am now in control and I get to take my little boy to school. I will never miss a Sports Day, Celebration Assembly or Nativity. I can read a bedtime story without rushing. I am the one who now gets to see the developmental milestone moments of my daughter.

No Sunday night blues … It’s wonderful.

In all honesty, I’m a girly girl. I love shoes, make-up, jewellery, music, celeb gossip and food. Much to the delight of my husband, I also love Football and to the amusement of my friends, I enjoy watching the Darts! My friends are incredibly important to me and I pride myself on being a supportive friend who can lend an ear or give advice.

  I decided to write this blog as I love writing and I wanted a way of documenting the adventures and journeys that my little family get up to. I aim to share with you the things in my life, that I love. The things which I think you might love too. We will share with you our highs, our successes, our fears. We love family days out, travel and eating out. We love being outdoors; you will most likely find us at the beach or among nature.

I have written guest posts for the Paultons Park website, I am a MAMA Academy Ambassador, Sassy Bloom Ambassador and a Blogs for Babies Resident Blogger and most recently was selected to be part of the official H&A Bathtime Fun Squad, 2015. I can proudly say that I have also been selected to be on the Parent Panel for Parent Friendly Stays.

And finally…

The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything. They just make the most of everything that comes their way.

  1. I agree with you wholeheartedly… what a mess the education system is right now. Did you feel systems were in a much better place when you began teaching or just better than now?


  2. Hi Ali, I love your quote at the end. I need to have a word with myself some days and repeat that mantra! I’m still getting through year 1 of my first baby, so things can get a little fraught! Lovely blog x


  3. Hi Ali, you must have such a hectic life with four little people in the house! Have just been having a look around Kids Corner, what a beautiful letter to Harley 🙂


  4. Loved reading your about me page, such an insight into your life. Your household definaty sounds hectic, I bet you’re kept on your toes. Your very lucky to have a job that allows you to work from home and be there for your children. I sometimes wish I had got into teaching its sounds so rewarding but the pressure teachers are under nowadays is incrediabke!


  5. The quote at the end sums it up! I bet your family and friends are very thankful that you’re in their lives. You’re so positive and cheeful; so friendly and approachable; so easy going and delightful – these and more are what oozes out to me. Definitely glad you’re one of my ‘blogeeps’. Thanks for your support with my 1st linky; so glad you joined in. Hopefully see again on Monday, if you can, when the second one opens.

    To so many more amazing things in the year ahead! #SoFAL
