About Me :)

Thank you to anyone taking the time to read this πŸ™‚

I’m Lisa, married to “long-suffering husband” Jeff (his words not mine) πŸ™‚ We have 4 children, plus about another 14 that regularly inhabit our household, usually when the football or rugby is on – or when I`ve made cakes πŸ™‚Β  We share the household with our Jack Russell, Peppa andΒ Jeff`s snooty Siamese cat, Kiera, plus a tank load of, well fish IMAG1114IMAG1106IMAG0215πŸ™‚

I`ve discovered over the years, just how bloody funny children and life can be – I`ve tried to encapsulate some of this humour in my blog πŸ™‚

I am a complete and utter book-worm and love to read and write, anything that captures my interests.Β  I love anything that makes me stop andΒ think and, as a consequence,Β alters my views. Β I love posts that make me laugh and make me cry.Β  I feel it a privilege to read something that someone has written and l honoured if anyone reads anything I have written and takes the time to comment and let me know how it made them feel.

My favourite drink is Tea and my favourite food is, well, everything really πŸ™‚

I look forward to communicating with you all πŸ™‚

  1. Thanks for following my 80Insights blog. Our boys are now grown men with children of there own, but it’s amazing how many times we will recall and chuckle over something one of the boys did or said as youngsters. Kids are funny. Enjoy your family journey!


    1. Aw thank you and yes you are sooo right about the funny and touching moments, this was exactly why I started my blog – so I could always look back – I look forward to communicating with you 😊 xx


      1. Aw thank you for taking the time to read – I aim to bring a smile – as I rock back and forth in the corner, whimpering at their antics πŸ˜„ look forward to communicating with you – have a good day xx

  2. Thank you for your family oriented blog. I just love your theme :”kidscrumbsandcrackers” That sounds much better than the one I was thinking of ‘faceallcoveredwithsnotandjam’ that doesn’t doesn’t sound quite right!

    Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope you found something there that made you chuckle, briefly shed a tear that’s okay too, just so you found something maybe you can share with your kids that would make my day for me

    It sounds like you like tea, me too.
    Best wishes with your writing and I hope we all get something good out of Blogging 101.

  8. I see you like to read. I have written a book and a half and would love to get your take on my writing. Can I get you to read and chapter and get some feedback? Let me know. By the way the cancer in my elbow is gone but the ache is there from the operation.
