Hiiiii, I’m Ashlie, a Geordie girl born and bred. 
I live with my 2 rambunctious (thats cute for hyper) hilarious boys Archie 9 and Oscar 6. I am Divorced and we are on a whole new life adventure in our house of 3. It's sometimes crazy but I love us. I started my blog in 2013 while on Maternity leave to stop my brain turning to mush...some you win some you lose. I suffer from dyslexia as you will see so don't expect much from the grammer but I do try and it's not on purpose. I initially started for recipes but after a toddler and chicken pox scenario induced rant, it turns out my unfiltered tone, crazy kids and adventures were way more popular. 

My Bestie once said “If you mixed Charlotte and Samantha from Sex and the City it’s you!” so there you go. I’m a reallly honest Mam you won’t find me sugar coating parenthood, kids are hard work! I’m also food obsessed, love to eat, make a canny cake. I have also lost 5st with Slimming World after having my boys, so like most girls always battling the bulge but what is life without treats?! I love a night in and a night out in equal measure, which makes sense because I’m either glammed to the max inc false eyelashes or in my Pj’s looking homeless...there is no in between. I watch way too much American TV and wine is a staple in my life. I like Tea, Nails, Cake, Box set Marathons, Alcoholic drinks, Profanity, Designer Handbags, Peanut Butter, Quotes, Travelling, Sunny Days, Fresh Sheets and Instagram... 

This is my corner of the world to share, laugh, vent and occasionally cook.

Thanks for stopping by I hope you like it!
