I am now on my Christmas break so I will not be posing any new content until the end of the year. I will not be answering any comments or able to approve new comments until I am back but once back I will make sure that I reply to all and approve any comments that are waiting. 

I hope that you have a fantastic time over this festive season, no matter how you intend to celebrate! It has certainly been a strange year and I am looking forward to starting a new year and hoping that it is much improved for everyone worldwide! 

Thank you to all who have supported my blog by reading my posts and contacting me. It really does mean the world. I am now off to eat my weight in mince pies and have a glass of something sparkly! 

Welcome to my blog

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 22, 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.

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 nearing 40 and feeling the best I have ever felt as I am living life for me 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!
