Hello! I’m Emma. Thank you for stopping by my blog!
I have always thought that blogs provide a wonderful glimpse through the keyhole into other people’s lives. That is why I love reading them. I think it is fascinating to discover how a family is carving out an existence on a rural ranch or squeezing themselves into a tiny apartment in a buzzing city. I have learned so much from people I have never met about how to lead a more enjoyable and fulfilling life. So this blog is simply a glimpse into my own world as a young wife and mum, with a fondness for list-making, organising and plopping down with a good book.
I live in England, with my husband Danny and new baby Jacob, in an itty bitty cottage which I wish looked a bit more like the one in The Holiday. Home and family are my passions; I’ve never been much of a career girl and I crave a fairly simple and uncomplicated existence! I like learning about homemaking and cooking tasty food and I am tentatively dipping my toes in the world of gardening – starting with some herbs and a few potatoes. We are a one income family so I am always keen to save money and I try to share any thrifty tips that I find with you here. I hope that you find something fun or useful in this space and enjoy dipping in and out of our family life!
