Profile picture of Denise, the author of the blog

My name’s Denise, I’m 40 and married to Darren. We have three beautiful children who are my world. Lauren is 23, Chloe is 21 and Faith is 12. We live in Suffolk which is in the east of England in the UK. We also have three super cute dogs called Leo, Cody, and Prince, who complete our family and I am a proud nanny too!

My story

Life has not always been easy, I have struggled with depression for most of my adult life and in 2009 I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I originally started this blog in 2013 hoping to share my journey as I strived to improve my life. Since then it has developed into a family and lifestyle blog which includes; parenting, relationships, dogs, organising, travel, positive thinking, goal setting, mental health, recipes, reviews, home education, and loads more.

I am a stationery addict who loves to plan and write lists. A board game enthusiast who is highly family-focused and I love movies, reading, Agatha Christie, Mrs. Hinch, baking, Happy Planning, snail-mail, and crafting. My confidence and anxiety have let me down for many years but I am now feeling the best I have ever felt as I am living life for myself and my family. I no longer worry about the thoughts of others and instead focus on things that can let me live my best life! I also have a second blog which is about my spiritual journey
