Other Bloggers Family Lives Featuring Everything's Rosie And George

Welcome to another week of my blog series Other Bloggers Family Lives, this week I am featuring Rosie from Everything's Rosie And George. Rosie is fairly new to blogging and her blog is all about life with her toddler George, beauty and little snippets of her life in Carlisle. She writes in such a lovely friendly way and it feels like you are chatting to a friend when you read her posts. 



So let's find out about the family behind Everthing's Roise And George. 

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

My family is made of me, Roise, my adorable two year old son George and my lovely boyfriend Frankie. I work part-time a couple of evenings and spend the rest of my time playing games and talking dinosaurs with G. 

2.) Where do you live ? 

We live in a two-bedroomed terraced house in Carlisle, Cumbria. A lot of my friends seem to feel that Carlisle is the most boring place on Earth, to be fair it isn't exactly a hub of culture, but I like it. It's generally a pretty quiet and small city with easy access to the Lakes, Scotland and the North East, meaning the lack of local activities can be easily remedied by a short road-trip! I'm not sure if Carlise is where we will live forever, we're only renting our house at the minute and where we end up will probably depend on where Frankie's career will take us. 

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

I always end up feeling guilty if George doesn't stretch his tiny legs outside once a day, so we love visiting our local parks where he can run around to his hearts content and feed all the ducks he can find - it's a super cheap activity as well. It usually only costs the sprice of bread and maybe a 99 ice cream cone in the summer. Any wide open space is usually a hit, so lovely long dog walks with Frankie's family on a weekend is a regular favourite, we particulary enjoy visiting a small lake from Carlisle called Talkin Tarn. It only takes about 20 minutes to walk all the way around (or a bit longer if G is walking) so it is a lovely morning activity to fit in before George's nap. 

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

I would love to live in Toronto, Canada. I studied at the University of Toronta for a year while I was at University and I adored it there. The city itself was amazing, always bustling, but you never felt rushed, it was filled with lovely Canadians who are even more polite than your sterotypical Brit. George loves snow too, so even the freezing cold winters would be enjoyable.

5.) Did you grow up close to where you live now and what is your favourite childhood memories where you grew up ? 

We currently live just around the corner from my Mum and Stepdad's, and down the road from the house I grew up in with my parents and older brother. Until I was 14 I lived on a quiet tree-lined avenue where all the local children were friends and our parents were comfortable enough to let us roam in and out of each others houses and play happily together on the street outside. I love the memories of racing my friends on our bikes and having sleepovers fuelled by popcorn and laughter.

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

George turned two in February so the most exciting event has already passed! George and I have a lovely holiday to Spain planned in April with my mum so we're looking forward to that, we have not got any big family plans (yet).

7.) Do you wish there were certain family activities closer to you that are not available? 

I sometimes find myself struggling of things to do in Carlisle, especially if it is raining! We have a pretty good soft play centre near to our house called Aztec, but George is a bit of an inbetween age/size at the moment where he is too big for the 'baby' softplay and too small for the 5 + area. I am always scared he's going to get trampled by those big rowdy kids! If anything I would love to be able to take him to the natural history or science museums, he's really into dinosaurs at the moment so I'm sure he'd be interested in looking at the exhibitions about them, it would be enjoyable for me and Frankie too which is always a plus. More than anything I just wish the Cumbrian weather was 
a bit better than it is, we have the Lake District on our doorstep but it's not quiet so appealing when it's pouring down. 

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

I have loved watching George grow and develop into a loving, intelligent and all-round amazing little boy over the last two years. Equally I've been amazed by mine and Frankie's transformation into the (hopefully) successful parents we are now, our relationship is stronger than ever and we've really settled into our family life very happily. I enjoy our family breakast, our naptime coffee breaks and bedtime snuggles with George, they all sound a bit routine but the little things are my favourite part of our family life!

I loved reading your answer's Rosie, it sounds like you are really enjoying being a mummy to George and treasure all those special little moments. I hope that you have a fantastic holiday in Spain and continue to enjoy watching George's personality develop and make lots of lovely memories along the way.

  5. This is such s lovely relaxing post to read. I love those ordinary moments of family life too they are just as important as the big exciting days. We took our kids to the Lake District last summer and it was AMAZING! We spent so much time outdoors, we were very fortunate with the weather. We didn't go to Carlisle but I think we might have been close when we went tongue South Lakes zoo (which we loved so much).

  8. I hope you have a lovely holiday ... At least you know the weather will be nice enough for George to get out and about every day. It's so tough here when you never know if the next day will be dry so you can get out of the house.
