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!
We took a trip to Talacre beach again today and were joined by Mark's parents, his brother Greg and Greg's girlfriend Kelly. We had already asked Mark's mum and dad along, but Greg and Kelly were last minute additions that made the Podlings' day. They are both great favourites with the children and Lily absolutely adores Kelly. It was so nice to have the family there with us, we were just missing Mark's youngest brother Ryan. We are hoping to all go again together soon, though hopefully on a warmer day. It was pretty chilly there today! .
He sits! Tom is not often still at the beach, so I had to snap this picture while I could. .
As you can tell from her face and cardigan, Emma had a fantastic time eating sand again! .

The Podlings with Auntie Kelly and Uncle Greg. Greg quickly realised quite how heavy a four year old can be, but he manfully carried her all the way back to our spot! .
