As part of my blog I’ll write up reviews of things we as a family enjoy so if you have a product that you might think it is suitable for my family please contact me at otilia.stocks@gmail.com or through the below Contact Form:

Adrian  – The Yorkshire Husband and Daddy

He occasionally writes and reviews for the blog although he is also trying to provide for the family.

He likes beer, movies and music but first of all he loves his three ladies!


Kara – Born in 2009 she is now in school and bilingual – romanian & english but her 1st language is english. As you can imagine she loves ballet, cartoons, princesses and all the other dolls but she truly enjoys doing puzzles. Although she is only 5 and a half at the moment she can manage 7 + puzzles without problems.

She is also reviewing and taking part in most of my recipes for kids.


Anastasia – Born in 2012, I still see her as my baby. She is a lot messier and naughtier than Kara use to be at her age. She loves balloons and her older sister.
