All About Me


My name's Cheryl and I'm a full time housewife and mum, married to Mike, and we have six beautiful children.

Aged between thirty and sixteen, our children are now all in various stages of independant life- from our eldest who has not only flown the nest but also the country, and now lives in Canada with his wife and their three gorgeous little boys... to our youngest who is due to sit her GCSE exams this summer.
Our eldest daughter (twenty seven) moved out during the summer of 2019- fortunately for her, her boyfriend moved in with her just weeks before lockdown began... They now live an hour away from us, along with their beautiful little baby boy.
Our twenty four year old daughter was until early 2020 living at home 'part time', spending weekends at her boyfriend's mum's flat- then moved in with him during lockdown, and for several months then spent weeks at a time either here or there... They now also live an hour away from us in their own house.
Our younger (twenty three year old) son also moved out towards the end of 2019 and now comes to stay with us for a couple of weeks every couple of months...
And our nineteen year old daughter was about to take her A' Levels... when schools were closed for lockdown and all of 2020's summer exams cancelled... She now attends Art College and is halfway through an Illustration degree course.

Since the pandemic began, our usually busy and chaotic lives have obviously adapted and changed- our emphasis now being on simply keeping connected with our wonderful family, rather than having a constant stream of people through the doors and lifts to places being required! Quieter it may be, but it was certainly easier to have a house full of people and every day chats than have to contact each individually for updates on their lives! As so many thousands of other people have found out over the last two years, the wonders of modern technology and the embarrasing 'Zoom' calls have been a neccessity for keeping in touch with all our lovely family- as it has also continued to be, now that the older children are all off living their own lives!

Several years ago I wrote in my blog that although my life was busy and chaotic, I developed this little business just in case I got bored... there seems to be even less chance of that these days!
