Other Bloggers Family Lives Featuring A Journey To A Lifetime

This week on Other Bloggers Family Lives I am featuring Carol who blogs at A Journey To A Lifetime. Carol blogs about family life as a mum of three, budgeting and money saving tips. So let's find out more about the family behind A Journey To A Lifetime.

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

I am Carol, I live with my husband Benedict and our three children Aiden (7), Isla (3) and Emilie (2). Our house is loud and busy.

2.) Where do you live?

We live in a village in Warwickshire.

3.) What are your favourite things to do as a family where you live?

We are big fans of National Trust sites and a picnic. Closer to home we enjoy the country parks for the walks, swings and feeding the ducks.

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

Sweden, I am not sure why, but something really intrigues me about the country. My husband lived in other countries when he was younger, I think that is why we would possibly move further and why we look outside of our own country when discussing if we should move to a new house.

5.) Did you grow up close to where you live now and what are your favourite things to do as a family where you live?

Yes, I grew up in a city near where we live. My favourite memories are my friends, looking back now school was a great time in my life and a memory I enjoy.

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

It is my 30th this year so we are yet to plan anything, but we know we are doing something as a family to celebrate that. I am currently enjoying being a SAHM which will end as my youngest goes to school, so I am just trying to enjoy every moment and every activity as much as I can.

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

I love that no day is the same. You can plan and have routine but today will not be the same as yesterday. I also love seeing everyday things through a child's eye, their imagination is incredible. We are in a busier and noisier time of our life but I know I need to grab every moment as when they are older this is what we will be looking back on.

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer these questions, Carol. It sounds like you are really cherishing these days at home while your children are small, I too will be returning to work when my youngest starts school and I am trying to enjoy the time I have at home as best I can. I hope you have a lovely time celebrating your 30th this year.
