This is a quick note to introduce myself; I’m a 30-something mother of a boy who’s four and his two-year-old brother. We live in the North East of England, in a small two-bedroomed flat with our two cats.

We love to travel – our son had made 30 flights by the time he was 30 months old, which I think is pretty good going! (interestingly I made a typo in that sentence, and it originally read “we live to travel”, which isn’t too far off the mark!) Of course travelling makes for a confusing quandary in our heads, especially now given that our second child is here, and our house ain’t getting any bigger! Should we travel or buy a new house?!

So, I blog about our lives at the moment, and hope you’ll join us on our journey while we grow as a family and visit new places.

    I thought this post was really poignant as I remember the feeling well. I am terrible now too as I run around between jobs and home. I will make time tomorrow to say hello and happy christmas to a stranger. Thanks for linking up. #sundaystars

    Isn’t maternity leave amazing? I didn’t want to go back to work! Beautiful family.
