Life, loves and adventures from the little corner of the world I share with my family – my husband, our two young daughters, 25-year-old Fell pony, little adventuring hamster and two energetic kittens.
“A Mischief Managed”
I first began this blog almost six years ago now, writing initially primarily about the pets who made up our much-loved little family at the time – a furry blurry collection of rats, hamsters and most of all my biggest fluffiest boy, the very characterful Fell pony. Its name (with a nod to the wonderful Harry Potter books of course) was drawn from the “mischief of rats” who made up most of our little rabble back then. Over the years as life has moved on, our little family has grown and changed and we now no longer have a mischief at home, having lost our last elderly rat boys in the summer of 2019.
Life is, however, fuller than ever – I am so grateful still to be blessed with the pony who is now an amazing 25 years old, having been with me 21 years this year; and the last few years have been huge ones for us, with our human contingent growing every day – our little daughters, born in 2017 and 2020, now making sure that we are “managing mischief” more than ever at every turn! ❤ Small pets are not completely gone from the household either, with Sparkle, our little adventuring hamster, filling the role of family pet with enthusiasm and character! And more recently, life has been shaken up even more with the arrival of our two little black kittens, Rosie and Theo, who bring even more chaos and joy to the family.
I have loved to have this little space over the past few years to write and gather thoughts about our adventures together and all the things I love most in life, and I now mostly write about family life both at home and at the farm, any travels we find ourselves on and lots of reading adventures too.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Xx
