My life & kids, a brief intro...

I've meant to start my "mumoirs" (as I lovingly refer to them because it sounds cute, others might consider them more insane ramblings) for some time, however time is something I don't always have.

I'm not a writer, or a journalist or anything like that. That is not to say that at one stage of my life I didn't want to be those things, because I did. But it didn't work out like that, and while I think it might have been nice I am happy with where I am today.

My name is Julie and I am a mum. I have five gorgeous kids ranging from tween to toddler and a husband, Adam.

Alicia is our tween, she'll be 13 in July and don't we know it! Joshua is 10 and a budding young Footballer. Logan will be 8 in August and is our little computer games enthusiast. Harrison is 5½ and an aspiring Fireman! Last but not least we have our princess in training, miss Erica who just turned 1 last month.

We lead an average life - school, housework, errands... Adam works all the hours and when he isn't working he is coaching Joshua's Football team. We grab every opportunity we can to do things together as a family because our time can be limited by the daily grind, and so we want to make every minute count.

Parenting to us isn't a chore, or just an obligation, it's a pleasure. The sun rises and sets on our children and we want to give them the best childhood we can. We don't have wads of cash to spend on the kids, but in our opinion the best thing to spend on kids is time and quite frankly, there is nothing else I would rather do than be in the kitchen up to my elbows in cake mixture, or covered in mud from a bear hunt in the woods.

This blog is primarily somewhere for me to share thoughts, ideas, recipes, activities & pictures of what we spend our time doing.

So... Welcome to my world. Think of it like a curly wurly... Sweet but a little bit twisted. Enjoy!
