Me, my tribe and this blog

I’m ClarClare Coleman - Headshote – I’m on the wrong side of 40 with three awesome kids a husband and a maniac puppy! I live in rural Nottinghamshire with regular trips to the big smoke to fuel my need to see more than five people in a bar at once and to watch the big world, as opposed to the occasional tractor, go by. I love music, food, wine, dancing when my back can take it) and having a whole heap of fun. We don’t have a celebrity budget to live on but we do have a full, happy and pretty lovely life.

My fantastic kids are 6, 10, and 11-going-on-21. As a result, we are battling tween hormones, the crazy and relentless energy of a 10 year old boy and a six year old wild child who is desperate to outclass them at every turn. My kids are crazy, brilliant, fascinating and infuriating. They push me to embrace adventure and make me laugh most of the day. They are the reason I get out of bed in the morning and the reason I pass out in a heap on the sofa at night.

My Superpower and how it can help you!

I started blogging to share my slightly ranty parenting posts with others who are treading a similar hamster wheel and to share my creative projects with people who love to make, bake, decorate and create. However, as my blog has evolved I have learned that I have something of a rare superpower…

As a tribe, we smile and laugh, even when the chips are down. We make a life of adventure from even the most simple things. We love growing our own food and flowers and making the most of the countryside and sea air. I get a real buzz from turning the everyday into the fabulous, creating amazing meals from simple, humble and often home-grown ingredients and throwing awesome parties (even if I do say so myself) with little more than my magic wand and a healthy dose of creativity.

Come on a journey with us as we live our best life. Spend less time worrying about what you don’t have and more time enjoying the things you do!
