Other Bloggers Family Lives Featuring The Mum Diaries

Welcome to another week of my guest post series Other Bloggers Family Lives. This week I am featuring a blog that I have only just discovered called The Mum Diaries. Written by Jaymee it is all about her family life with her three boys, recipes, reviews and general parenting posts. 

So let's find out more about the family behind The Mum Diaries. 

The Mum Diaries

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

Hi, I am Jaymee and I am 27 years old. I live with my husband Mark and three boys - Jack, Oliver and Arthur. I work part-time as a cleaner in the evenings and look after the boys during the day. My husband is a postman so out early but always home by 3pm. I am a volunteer breastfeeding peer supporter and also run a not for profit nappy library promoting cloth nappies to local families. I love stationery and coffee, nothing makes me happier than starting a fresh new notepad. 

2.) Where do you live? 

We live in Cambridgeshire, in a beautiful city with great history. I love my city, although it can be disheartening sometimes watching the local news. I  do love raising my boys here, there is always something to do with my family. 

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

We live close to a farm and a zoo, so we enjoy spending time there. We also love going on walks around the nature reserve and having picnics. 

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

Hmmm, this is a really hard question. I would want to stay here, maybe live further in the countryside rather than the city. 

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

Yup, I live in pretty much the same part of the city as I did growing up. I loved spending time with my best friend, just relaxing by the local river. Most of my childhood memories of where I grew up are pretty standard. I remember being allowed to go to the park for the first time, I felt pretty grown up. 

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

I am secretly planning a holiday for next year. no-one knows about it; not even my husband. Oliver started school in September and Arthur started playschool, those are pretty big milestones for our family. 

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

Watching the boys grow, sometimes I really struggle especially when they don't listen, or scream and shout. But sometimes, just sometimes they are loving to each other and play nicely. 

Thank you so much for taking part Jaymee, it was lovely to find out more about yourself and your family. My little boy started playschool recently too and my little girl started nursery school, such a big change to our routine. I love that you are planning a surprise holiday that not even your husband knows about.
