I thought, being as it’s been so long since I posted, that it might be nice to do an ‘Introductory Post’, a bit like I would on a new blog… A ‘Re-Introductory Post’ if you will.
Having looked at my ‘About Me’ section, I noticed that when I wrote it, Mo was 9…. Well, Amber has just turned 9 now, so that means I must have written it at least THREE WHOLE YEARS AGO!!! Eek! We’re all different to how we were three years ago, especially the children. Plus the fact that I’ve always tried to not use their real names on the blog in true ‘blog style’. But I’m not very good at being consistent and discreet, and often drop their names on Instagram and stuff, so I figure I may as well introduce y’all properly!
So here goes! First up….. ME!
I’m Laura. I’m in my early thirties (totally my best decade yet, I’m loving it) and have a crazy Loopy Home full of crazy loopy people. I love to crochet, bake, do colouring in, embaress my kids in public places, stuff like that! I go crazy for rainbows, glitter, Moomins, and Care Bears.
Here’s me looking all gorgeous and stuff-
Next up, Brian. He’s a little bit older than me, and his hobbies include being grumpy, not telling me he doesn’t like a food until after I’ve cooked it, and sitting quietly. He’s very tolerant of my lunacy and craziness though 😉 .
Here he is looking unimpressed-
And here is devouring a freakshake-
Well now, who’s next? Ah yes, Mo! She’s coming up to 12 now, just started High School, and fully believes this makes her an adult. She loves to sing, play guitar, take selfies, and write ‘novellas’. She’s just getting to the nightmare stroppy stage god help us, and flits between evil teenager and sweet little Mo every hour or two.
Next in line is Amber! She’s just turned 9. She’s a complete little maths boffin. Honestly, she wanted a ‘Maths themed birthday cake’!! 🙂 She loves maths, homework, gymnastics, and horses!
And then come the gruesome twosome….. Our little suprise additions. They’re almost 4 now!
Oldest by two minutes is Henry. He loves Superman and Spiderman! He’s also just discovered the concept of answering back with smarty pants comments, cheeky little bugger. For example:
Me: Did you eat your lunchbox at nursery today?
Me: You heard me, did you eat all your lunchbox?
Henry:…… Mommy I did not eat the box!
And last but by no means least is Raymond. He loves Batman and Nemo and Dory. He is the master of hilarious facial expressions!
So that’s my family, the occupants of The Loopy Home!
I do, however, also have a pretty cool supporting cast too! My two best friends who you will often hear me talk about, deserve an introduction too I reckon. They’re both crazy hookers just like me, and we’re currently brainstorming the idea of starting an online shop and website together.
First up, Helen. We met years ago when we worked at the Library. Helen is quite quiet and just like my kids, very easily embaressed by me!
And of course, there’s Melody. She is very like me- crazy and rainbow loving.
And there we go! That’s us! Hopefully you will now be able to put faces to names when I’m waffling on, and also, you’ll have a bit more of an up to date representation of us all.
🙂 🙂 🙂
