My name is Paula. I'm a full-time mum and homemaker. I live in Staffordshire with my wonderful husband Mark and our four delightful children Tom (12 years), Lily (11 years), Emma (8 years) and little Alexander (3 years). A cosy home, good books to read, access to the countryside, tea and flowers. A little time for some needlework, a little baking, time to play my piano and my family nearby...that's me happy!
Life is good!
It was a beautiful autumn day today, so the Podlings and I went for a walk this afternoon. Next to the local park is a small coppice that Tom and Lily have Christened the tree house and they currently prefer playing in there to the park itself. I usually stand outside their little den with the pram, but today I took a little peek at them while they were playing and found the scene above. Yes, Lily is up a tree! It was only a matter of time before my adventurous little girl started her arboreal adventures. Despite her preference for dresses and all things girly, there's no denying a tomboyish streak in her. I've always said Lily is the sort of girl who will be climbing trees in a tutu, so I guess she's made a start!
