About the Author

Ahh, how exciting that you’ve come to find out more about me! I’m Jade and I’m from a little corner of the world known as West Norfolk. I’m a 27 year old mama of two boys; Toby who was born in August 2013 and Teddy who followed in May 2015. As of October 2016 I also became a wife! You might even recognise me from being on an AO advert a little while ago.. or maybe not!

I’m rarely seen without a cup of tea in one hand and white chocolate in the other as they’re the two things I just can not resist! I can’t think of anything better than cooking a good meal from scratch, doing some occasional baking and playing netball – not all at the same time obviously. I love to read when I get the time and I’m a wishful traveller; I’d love to see the world with my family especially as we all love to ski!

I started my blog not long after Toby was born and it’s become quite the hobby, although this comes second to being a mum. I wanted to be able to record things that happen so we could look back as a family in a few years time and really appreciate all the magical memories and little adventures we might have usually forgotten about, but I also wanted to grow it into a space for me where I can talk about the things I love too.

I love being able to share my experiences with other bloggers and, in turn, learn from theirs. I love reading other blogs, especially when it’s so easy to relate to what they’ve written and also because it’s like having another community and support network. I’ve also made some of the most incredible friends through this space.

I hope you enjoy reading and that this gives you a little insight of what I’m about. There might even be a little ‘about me’ video coming up shortly. I know there are lots of amazing blogs out there so I’m grateful that you’ve chosen to have a look around this one. There are loads of ways you can keep up with me as you’ll find me on most social media sites.

If you’d like to work together, or have any questions, just drop me a line!

    What fantastic records blogs are, they hold so many memories and the potential for so much laughs in years to come. Also incredible how so many women seems to have started blog early on in their motherhood journey. I started mine during my maternity leave.

    Thanks for joining in with #SoMeBlogLuv (formerly #SoFAL).
