Greetings and welcome to my humble blog! My name is Alison and this little space is about my life in general, with the odd musing and recipe thrown in.
My family – Mr.43, Mr.5, and Mr.2, are of course mentioned quite often. The four of us, along with a cat and a goldfish, live in an old weatherboard cottage near the beach in Melbourne. Life is good in this city, and being by the bay makes for a lovely existence.
I’m afraid I can’t offer you gorgeous images of wonderfully styled kids’ rooms, or artful foodie shots. I suck at taking photos, so shamefully, I tend to steal other peoples’ images, and stick to the writing bit.
What you will find, though, is honest and (I hope) unpretentious thoughts from a working Mum making the most of life, figuring it out one day at a time!
Whilst I value my family above all else, I also value 10-minute sleep ins, cups of tea that I manage to drink before they go cold, cat naps, sun, skinny lattes, everything vintage, reading, baking, the great outdoors, the fact that there are two specialty chocolate shops within a 5km radius of my home, pottering about like a retired person, and finding small snippets of time to write.
Thanks for visiting!
