I'm Helen, a 30 (something) year old Mummy of 2 living in Peterborough. I share my life with my crazy five year old boy Alfie, my smiley  2 year old daughter, Elarna and my long suffering husband Adi. I'm a crazy cat lady, prosecco drinking, chocolate eating generally all round good gal (with a sharp tongue at times!). Practice Nurse by day and blogger by night.

Many things make me happy and here I'll be blogging about these and sharing my passions. Follow my blog for an honest, light hearted but at times tough, emotional and raw view of parenting 2 young children and juggling day to day life.  

If you'd like to contact me please do, I welcome emails and am open to working with brands, companies and I'm a huge supporter of local and smaller companies, if you think we can work together drop me a mail! Stats and other relevant information is available on request. My terms and conditions, there really isn't many other than any collaborative posts will be marked with either *sponsored or *collaborative and Paypal fees will be added on to total amount owed.
