Back in 2016 I decided to start a blog- a online diary to record our lives- but it got put on the back burner as life was about to get pretty hectic so I just didn’t have the time or energy to give my all to it… working none stop as a childminder, raising two beautiful girls, looking after a house, supporting a loving partner and then throw a spontaneous putting the house on the market was never going to end well so the blog was literally shelved but not totally forgot about…

Fast forward a year (and a bit) later and life is VERY VERY different now some bits are the same like two beautiful girls and the loving partner are still here but we now own a new house (down at The Grove) but I’m no longer childminding as I’m had to give it up due to ill health which you can read all about here. Therefore leaving me time to spare so I can now focus on my blog to keep me sane!

So now that I’ve got the time to blog I’ve been thinking about why I’ve wanted to blog….

I’ve decided there’s 2 reasons…

The first to keep me sane and give me something to focus on in this new different life of mine. With me no longer working I need to have something to focus on to save me going  insane! Ha! This will be my new baby, my way to express all the feelings about life and parenthood as this malarkey is hard work sometimes!

The second reason like many in the blogging world nowadays is it’s going to chart the good moments and maybe the not so good moments of our family life but you know what….they’ll be our moments and our cherished memories and to show the girls even though I’m a crap shouty mother sometimes I bloody love the bones of those 2 girls. The girls that are mine and always will be!!

It’s going to be the place I reminisce and remind the girls and myself of stories from our lives so we don’t forget them.

So there we have it, the reason Life at The Grove was born…

Enjoy the ride my lovelies, buckle up it may be a bit bumpy at times…
