About

Welcome to my blog, I’m Louise.

I’m a 29 year old stay-at-home-mum to The Gruesome Twosome. I’m a lover of the great outdoors, French Bulldogs and all things Devonshire.

I’m unashamedly addicted to Coffee, Instagram and Dunelm Mill.

I live in a very beautiful part of North Devon and I love living here. Born and bred in fact, even if it did take moving to Bristol and back to fully appreciate my hometown.

My childhood is something I think back on often since giving birth to my son. It was simple, happy, muddy footed and sticky fingered (and obviously trendy!). My fondest childhood memories were made scaling the branches of the apple tree that sat at the bottom of our garden.

It has inspired me to want and create a similar upbringing for my child, full of barefoot adventures, potion making, mud bathing, snail sorting (don’t ask) and tree climbing!

This blog has no niche (sorry blog guides and gurus!) Instead, I will post whatever I like, whenever the moment strikes. By doing so, I’m hoping this blog will inspire me to dust off and pick up the camera once again, to venture out beyond these four walls, and most importantly, create wonderful childhood memories for my children to look back on.

So, you can probably expect my posts to be anything from “563 reasons North Devon is the best place to live” to “Why doesn’t my French Bulldog listen to me?” and “How to distract your child from putting soggy toast in daddy’s work shoes”.
