About me


Ella is a mum of 4; 3 boys and 1 girl. They range m from 8 months to 5 1/2 years. The 1/2 is important when you are 5 you know?!

Wife to frankly, her partner in crime. They had their brood in 5 years, yep that’s 4 babies in 5 years. So now completely out numbered this blog is a journey of childhood and motherhood.

Ella says: ‘I love good food, good design and good gin…I mean coffee. OK, I like both, I need both darn it.

I’m simply doing the best I can with the resources I  have.

I’ve been in the education sector for a long time but these days I’m back to my roots  as a writer.

In between children I’ve worked with Baby Hampshire, Baby London, The Gro Company, Junior Magazine, Country Life. My passion is celebrating what I love. It’s not often these days products live up to their hype, but with children under my feet and mum endless struggle to run a home…I find something that works, I want to talk about it!

I’m pretty green and we try and follow that ethos in our family as much as we can. I’m no lentil weaver but knowing where our food comes from is really important to us. We support local and independent as much as possible which when you live as rurally as we do…it’s pretty easy!

I want you to enjoy my blog, photos and content but if you wish to reproduce anything I would very much appreciate if you asked permission first. See blog terms and conditions
