Other Bloggers Family Lives Featuring Odd Socks And Lollipops

Welcome to another week of my guest post series Other Bloggers Family Lives, this week I am featuring Jenni from Odd Socks And Lollipops. I have been a fan of Jenni's blog for quiet a while now as I love reading about her adventures with her toddler Boo, toddler crafts and reviews. If you have a toddler you really should check out Jenni's blog as it is full of lots lovely ideas and so many posts you will relate too. 



So let's find out more about the family behind Odd Socks And Lollipops. 


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

I am Jenni, a 30 year old mum to a two year old daughter Boo. We live with my husband who is Danish. My husband has two sons C, who is 12 and M who is 10 from a previous marriage - they live in Denmark and visit as often as they can. 

2.) Where do you live ? 

We live in the Midlands.

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

We love to go walking and exploring our favourite places are Cannock Chase and The Wolseley Centre - We are lucky they are both only a short drive away from us and they are amazing places.

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

I would love to live close to the seaside - it would be amazing to be able to take Boo to the beach all the time! Though I know my husband would love to move to Canada - which I think would be exciting! 

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

I was born in Yorkshire and spent my childhood there and then in Durham - we moved there when I was 10. My husband spent his childhood in Denmark and Canada. My favourite memory from my childhood was playing in the tree house that all the children on our tiny village had made - it was just the best place for adventures! 

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

We are going away for a weekend for my mum's 50th birthday. It will be my husband and Boo and I, my mum and step-dad and my brother, his wife and their little boy. We are also hoping to take Boo to Denmark for the first time too.

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

Every day is different and lots of fun, we have so much to look forward too and each day is just wonderful fun - Boo and I get up to lots of lovely things and the weekends are always fun as my husband is home and we go out on bigger trips.

Thank you for taking part Jenni, I loved reading your answers. I love Yorkshire and Durham and had no idea you grew up in the North East. I hope that you enjoy your weekend away with family and that you get to take Boo to Denmark to see where her daddy is from.

  1. You're brave to consider upping sticks and moving to a different country. I suppose it's easier for your other half because he's lived there. It sounds lovely where you are at the moment!

  10. That tree house sounds awesome! We had a lovingly made 'den' as kids which was mostly a pile of sticks and old crates - we thought it was the bees knees though. :)

    I'd love to live by the sea too. At least until sand started getting everywhere... x

  12. What a great idea - so interesting to hear about other people's families. I grew up in Yorkshire too! Funnily enough, I do now live on the coast and it doesn't really hold that much appeal for me! Never been much of a beaches and sea person!
