I live on a Cheshire sheep farm with my husband and two children. Elizabeth who is 6, George who is 2 and Baby J, born in March 2017 .
I’ve always wanted a large family and I substitute babies for animals a lot of the time. I love the outdoors and encourage my children to get out on the farm every day.
We all lead busy lives and finding baby and parenting items that work and are value for money seems to be increasingly difficult. This is why I am so pleased and excited to be working with Summer Infant. It’s like they’ve looked inside my head and produced exactly what I need.
Becoming a parent has been the most frightening and amazing thing I have ever done. It really is a mine field out there and if I can help just one other person wading through the sea of sleeplessness or the joy of having peas thrown at you, then I will be happy.
I was a journalist before I gave it all up to become a farmer’s wife and mummy which, incidentally is the name of the blog I write. The blog keeps me sane and out of trouble (most of the time) and I get to tell anyone who reads it about our life on the farm.
When I’m not running after children, animals and mopping muddy floors, I can usually be found begging my farmer for more animals and babies. Farming and parenting blog about our life on the farm.
What 3 words come to mind when you think of your family?
Happy, outdoors, wild
What one piece of advice would you give to mums and dads out there?
I am finding it really hard to come up with just one. Go with your gut instinct. I am a firm believer in that. While friends, other family members and even some health professionals can mean well, you know your baby better than anyone.
What is the funniest thing that has happened to you since having your children?
Oh there has been loads. My daughter calling a woman a man (to her face) is up there though.
What do you like to do when you have some “me-time”?
I don’t get much but I love animals so I feed the goats and the chickens when the children are in bed and my husband eventually gets in and, if it is dry, I put the goats on little leads and take them for a walk. It is very relaxing.
Are there any blogs or websites that you read regularly?
I am the biggest ‘Googler’ that ever was. If you were to go on my Google search history I think you would laugh, cry and be very afraid in equal measure. I do read many, many blogs though and like so many, I can’t choose one. I do have a pram problem though and spend many evenings drooling over, what I call, pram porn.
