Hello and thank you for stopping by the about me section on This Day I love, this is me

I run my own freelance company www.thisdaymedia.co.uk offering digital marketing solutions to business including blogger outreach, social media consultancy, management and training. I am married and have two beautiful girls aged 5 and 4 years, a baby boy and two crazy dogs.  

The girls are very different.  My eldest loves sparkly things, Princess and imaginative play, my youngest loves mud, water, messy play and Minnie Mouse.  Both girls love getting out and about and trying new things.  They love to travel and their favourite holiday to date has been a Disney cruise.

J is our 7 year old Jack Russell.  He loves bubbles and chasing balls.  J has been known to carry a ball to bed with him for safe keeping.  His other favourite past time is swimming, a skill he has only just discovered but one he loves.  Spotty dog is our newest addition.  She is a rescue dog from the RSPCA and is a Dalmatian crossed with a Patter-dale terrier, think small fluffy Dalmatian.  Spotty dog loves food and digging.  I have a garden full of random holes she has dug.  I am looking forward to taking her on our travels so she can dig on a beach.

This day I love was started as a way of taking the positive from each day.  To capture the day and share with the girls when they are older.  I have often been asked what category this blog falls under is it parenting or lifestyle or travel, if I am truly honest it is none of these.  This is a 'Family' blog.  It captures everything to do with family life such as Family travel, Family play, Family craft, Family fun.  I don't class it as a parenting blog as it captures much more than this. 

I hope you enjoy reading and welcome any feedback.  If you wish to contact me please do so thisdayilove@gmail.com.  Thank you and I hope you enjoy my blog.
