Hi there, this is a short introduction to our family.
There’s me, my husband and our eight children. We are a blended family. I had 6 children and Steve had 2 children when we married.
Our story of how we got together is quite long, so I think I will leave that for another blog post, but the short version is that we we both had a bad relationship with the parents of our children.
We got married in October 2016, although we have known each other since 2000. It took us a while but we got there in the end. We met in Devon, but now live in Shropshire.
Three of our children have now left home and are aged 25, 22 and 20 years old. The five youngest are still living at home and are 15, 14, 11, 9, and 7 years old. With quite a few at home, life can be crazy, and this blog will share some of our adventures, trials and tribulations.
With two of our adult children still living in Devon, it is hard to get everyone together for a family photo, so the most recent ones we have is at our wedding.
