I’m Victoria. Mummy to Violetta, wife to my Italian hubby, business owner, teacher, crafter, cook and most recently – blogger! I live in the beautiful Royal Borough of Greenwich but spend a lot of time in the quintessentially English Kent countryside. I sometimes find that life throws out some really tough times. I’m the last person in the world to let them get me down, so I thought I’d put some of my positivity into a blog and see how I go! I’m hoping that this will focus me towards all the ‘sparkly linings’ of the clouds that sometimes hover and prove to be a positive place for anyone to spend some time. Being a first time Mum can have it’s highs and lows too, so I’ll try to make this a helpful space for any Mamas out there having a read. I hope you'll enjoy getting to know us through my posts about our life, parenting, things to do in SE London and Kent and my forays in the kitchen!
