Other Bloggers Family Lives Featuring Dot Makes 4

Welcome to another week of my new guest series Other Bloggers Family Lives, this week I am featuring the lovely Laura from Dot Makes 4. I have only recently discovered Laura's blog and like myself she has children with a big age gap, her blog is full of family day's out, reviews and free from recipes as her son has allergies. 



Laura is a stay at home mum who has been blogging for a year and she lives in Lincolnshire with her husband and two children. So lets find out a bit more about the family behind Dot Makes 4. 

1.) Tell me a bit about yourself and your family ? 

I am 32, married to my best friend Mark and we have two beautiful children, Mikey 11 and Dot who is 15 months. 

2.) Where do you live ? 

We live in a beautiful town in Lincolnshire. It's quiet small and only takes about 5 minutes to go from one end to the other (in the car not walking).

3.) What is your favourite thing to do as a family where you live ? 

Our favourite thing to do as a family is go for a walk and explore new places. I have lived here for 32 years and I'm still finding out new things!

4.) If you could love anywhere where would you ? 

Both my husband and I love New York, but we also love our town too. I think I would miss it too much if we moved to NYC. 

5.) Did you grow up close to where you love now and what are your favourite childhood memories of where you grew up ? 

Both me and my husband grew up in the town. I now live at the other end of it from my childhood home, but my husband only moved a street away from his! 

My favourite memories always revolve around the local park. It was 5 houses away from us and my brothers and sisters and all our friends used to spend hours playing there. There used to be about 12 kids all running to play 'Blocky'! (If you've never heard of it, you've really missed out!).

6.) Have you got any exciting plans for the year ahead ? 

My son wants to explore the whole of the UK and even has a scratch-off map to show where he's been. We thought that we'd try and help his quest, so this summer we're taking a family holiday up to see Hadrian's wall. 

7.) What is your favourite thing about family life ? 

My favourite thing about family life is the fun we have. Although there's school, work and housework, we always try to make the most of the time we can spend together.

Thank you for taking part Laura I have loved reading your answers, although I have to admit I have never heard of Blocky before. I hope that you enjoy your trip to Hadrian's wall, I must admit even though I live so close to it I have never actually visited it properly, I really must someday.

  4. I love posts like this. Such a great way of getting to know the blogger behind the blog.

    That is a really big age gap between children! I can't imagine getting one all the way through to pre teen and then starting back at the nappy stage. Such a brave lady!
