I’m Michelle, Mummy to three lovely children, Gabriel aged six, Willow, age four and baby Xanthe, born in October 2017. Together with my lovely partner Jake, we all live in the beautiful countryside of North Yorkshire.
I’m a Probation Officer by day, but by night I blog! I absolutely love to write and have done since a young age. Starting a blog was something a toyed with for many years before I actually took the plunge in September 2012, and I have not looked back since! Essentially, I blog to diarise my time with and memories with my children. I want them to have a place they can come to and read all about their early years and of course for myself to reminisce! I try to keep my blog positive and interesting with creative content as far I can (and have time to do). I also work with many companies in order to help promote smaller or local businesses. I try to write on behalf of charities as much as I can. I regularly produce and develop creative content for other websites and I also write a regular column for our local newspaper.
I’m a very busy lady and although I work in a day job and blog, myself and Jake also own a newly created business, ‘The Holy Smokery’ which is an artisanal food smokehouse based in the Yorkshire Dales, of course Jake is the (very talented) chef behind the business, but together we are creating something really special and exciting! Watch this space for further updates once we launch in the Summer 2018!
This blog is dedicated to Matilda Mae and I am committed to raising money for The Lullaby Trust in her memory and for the last two years I have skydived as part of Team #MMSkydive. You can view the adventure here!
If you’d like to work in collaboration with me, whether it be featured articles, content ideas, event representation or attendance, copywriting, sponsored posts publications or item/reviews please feel free drop me an email and we can discuss further.
My eldest child, Gabriel is the big brother everyone wanted! Gabriel has the best sense of humour, ever! He makes us laugh and smile every day. He loves festivals, dancing, Spiderman, steam trains, cars, being creative and drawing, reading stories, learning about dinosaurs and running around playing football too!
This is Willow. Born in December 2012 she has a very pretty face and the cheekiest smile! It’s giggles all round from this little lady, usually! Very determined just like her Mummy, she is growing up far too quickly. Far too smart for her own good, there is never a dull moment with Willow Pillow (WP!) about!
Willow also loves dancing, eating, cuddles and playing with her dolls. She also enjoys drawing on the living room walls…
The newest recruit to our family is Xanthe. Born in October 2017, most of her days are spent eating and sleeping but we are sure that will change very soon! Watch this space..
