The amazing adventures of me

Welcome to the amazing adventures of me.

This is our blog – the journal of our life – which is a bit of everything really. We’re a fun loving family. I’m Lavania, a single mum, working full time and I have a whole host of hobbies and interests – right now it’s all about balancing the craziness of life in 2020 with Arlo, who is a three year old little whirlwind. There is lots of play inspiration to be found here and also guides to arts and crafts projects which keep us busy. You can also find child friendly recipes, our holiday journals, product reviews and the occasional journal and opinion based post within this blog and coming soon is a section called “The House that Chaos Built” all about our home renovation project.
