Other Bloggers Family Lives Featuring Kelly Allen Writer

This week on Other Bloggers Family Lives I am featuring Kelly from the self-named blog Kelly Allen Writer. Kelly blogs about her family, books, theatre shows and reviews, so let's find out more about the family behind Kelly Allen Writer. 

Kelly Allen Writer

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

I'm Kelly and I'm a writer, I'm writing my first book and I started blogging over a year ago. My husband is called Warren and works for Lidl, he is a singer/songwriter/musician and he's gorgeous. We have two home educated children, George and Molly. George is 7 and is very wise, he's like an old man, always thinking and always right! Molly is 6, she's cute, loud and very kind.

2.) Where do you live?

We live in South Wales. We have moved around a bit and we're currently in Llantwit Major but hope to move back to Llantrisant where we used to live, we miss it a lot!

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

We love so many things - it's hard to choose. We love going on adventures and one of our favourites is a nice walk across the acre in Llantrisant. We also love going to the cinema and heading into Cardiff to explore. Of course, in Llntwit there's a beach!!!

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

Llantrisant or Aberystwyth. They both hold a very special place in my heart.

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

No. I'm from Birmingham originally ... My favourite memories would be spending summer a Kalamazoo hiding in trees and dens and hanging out with friends. I also loved spending time with my Dad who was a projectionist. I saw films for free and learnt a lot about behind the scenes in the ciname trade; it mostly involved chatting, tea and cakes. 

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

Ohhhh we're very last minute, as Julia Roberts says in Pretty Woman, "I'm a fly by the seat of my pants kinda gal!"

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

Wow. Loads. I know it's not always plain sailing, but I love the love. When my children hold me tight, kiss me and tell me they love me. I also love overwhelming belly laughs, aren't they the best? I also love the simple times, watching movies, cuddling on the sofa and just being together.


Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions Kelly, I totally agree that overwhelming belly laughs are the best, you can't beat the sound of your children's laughter. I have never been to Wales before but I keep hearing how lovely it is and would love to visit myself someday. I hope you have lots of spontaneous family adventures this year and get to move back to the town you were happy in.
