I’m Clare and welcome to my blogging home, my diary, my creative gallery, my thoughts laboratory. It’s a place where I can refine my ideas, publish my photos or display my creations. It is typically a happy place. A place where I like to look at the world and reflect upon the ups rather than the downs of life. A place where I consider little moments in my life that mean a lot. Moments that can sometimes get lost in busy lives. I try to seek them out and recognise them because it’s the small moments that often matter the most. Moments like baking a cake, making a gift, photographing the first spring flower, growing our own food or watching my children play. They are all here. My eclectic passions for; food, craft, home decoration, gardening, the countryside and spending time with loved ones.

But who am I?

I’m 40 years old. I live with my husband, our 3 children (7 year old girl and 4 year old twins, a boy and a girl) and our dog, in a little house in Wiltshire, UK. Most days, I’m either looking after the family or working from home, building websites.

I feel very, very fortunate. There was a time, 8 years ago, when we thought children would not be possible but, thanks to modern science and a bucket load of money, we are now a family. A bickering, messy, clueless, loving family.

I started my first blog 8 years ago and fell in love with the whole process of blogging. I loved that I was the creator, the writer, the editor. I loved that it was me who decided what got published. I even loved the geeky, nerdy, behind the scenes stuff. When our twins were born I started Grubby Little Faces with the idea to concentrate on my adventures in raising children but it has grown beyond that.
