Other Bloggers Family Lives Featuring Craft With Cartwright

Welcome back to another week of Other Bloggers Family Lives, my guest post series where I find out more about other bloggers. This week I am joined by Ruth who blogs at Craft with Cartwright a lifestyle blog featuring lots of crafts and recipes. Ruth lives with her husband and two sons in the West Midlands. 

So let's find out more about the family behind Craft with Cartwright.

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

Hi I'm Ruth and I'm a lifestyle blogger at Craft with Cartwright, I also work as a high school DT teacher, teaching food and textiles. I have a wonderful husband and two boys aged 9 and 5. 

2.) Where do you live?

I live in beautiful rural Herefordshire in the West Midlands. I love it here and couldn't think of living anywhere else.

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

Because we are in the countryside, there are always so many walks to go on. I love it as it gets the boys out of the house, we all get some exercise. Plus it's free!

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

I'd rather not live anywhere else, but if I had to choose I would probably pick Germany. I loved it when I went on exchange at high school and it's very similar to here in many ways. 

5.) Did you grow up close to where you live now?

I grew up about twenty miles from where I live now. My favourite memories are walking myself home from primary school at lunchtime for lunch, through our tiny village. Everyone used to comment on my singing as I passed. It just wouldn't happen these days. 

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

We are hoping to do a road trip across America next summer. Hubby and I did it when I was twenty-one and we had a blast. I would love to re-live it with the boys now they are old enough to cope with the long haul flight. 

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

Having someone there when you wake in the morning. Life can be so lonely otherwise. 

Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions Ruth, it sounds lovely where you live and like you are very settled. A road trip across America sound amazing, I would love to do something like that when my children are older as I bet it is such an adventure.
