So this is me… Caroline, 44 and a busy, full time working mum of 2 young children. Oh and I’m married too, with a stepson to add to the madness. I love my kids, but I never really knew what having family meant until I became a mother myself. I realise now what a task my parents had… And how the hell did they survive bringing up 2 teenage daughters!?
Like I said I have 2 kids; an 8 year old daughter and a 6 year old son. They make me laugh, scream and cry, but most of all, SMILE! (Ok pull my hair out too!!). There’s many a journey to work/breakfast club when I just listen to them talking in the back of the car, and the conversations just ramble from one mad subject to the next, but these happy memories keep me smiling in the long hours at work. Oh and I work with kids too, so I’m surrounded!… But, I love it as there is no one more honest than a child; they brighten my day, and make me laugh out loud. In all the stress and madness we find laughter!
I have many interests. I love cooking and baking (obviously), and I shall be posting my favourite recipes on this site, all accompanied by my own photographs. I also run to keep fit and healthy, and most of all stay (or get!) in shape. (Sometimes I enjoy eating what I cook a little too much!) We are fortunate to have a home gym in a converted workshop in our garden, fitted out with a treadmill, cross trainer, workout bench, rebounder, weights, etc. I also love photography, so I am starting a photography blog too.
