About Us

Hello, and welcome to my little space on the big ol’ internet, here  you will find me rambling on about life, parenthood, dogs, holidays and other things!

If you love Scotland, babies, dogs or holidays you’ll feel right at home here!

For those who don’t know me, my name is Jen, married to Jamie (Jay) and have a daughter called Erica (EJ). We have a very muddy dog named Alfie!




Here is Alfie loving life in the snow! (January 2018)


We live in Scotland in a little village just outside Lanark which we love although it is very muddy hence the ‘muddy mummy diaries’ ! Its mainly muddy because

1  – Its Scotland, therefore it pretty much rains 95% of the time!

2 – Alfie loves mud, puddles, lakes, forests, you name it, if its dirty or wet in anyway he loves it!

and lastly we are surrounded by farms and animals so its bound to get muddy!

I pretty much live in my Dublin River boots and I am forever cleaning Erica’s pram, the floors, the walls and well pretty much everything that Alfie comes into contact with! I know in years to come it’s only going to get worse when Erica is walking and no doubt rolls about in the mud and puddles with the dog at the same time, for now I’m thankful I can keep it semi clean!

Anyway, I digress!

I look forward to sharing some of the family adventures we all get up to!
