Welcome to Little Oat Tree! I was really nervous about doing this – for a long time, years before our Little Oat came along, my husband would encourage me to write about travelling and food. I often thought about it, but I didn’t think anything I had to say would be noteworthy. But as my maternity leave ends and I’m back at work, I have decided to give this a go, to capture our life, record our memories and experiences and find something that is more than just a job.

I’m still unsure about what type of blog I’ll end up writing – family underpins everything I do, but this is definitely not a parenting blog – I’m only 11 months in!! Travel and Food will fill these pages – I don’t eat to live, I live to eat, and being able to explore the world is something I am extremely grateful for. So can I say lifestyle…well what even is that? A healthy lifestyle, an active lifestyle, a lay on the sofa and watch a box set lifestyle? For me, our lifestyle depends on the weather, it depends on how we feel, it depends on the time of year, and it depends where we are.

I think I’ll just leave it as stuff…it’s the stuff that fills my life on a daily basis. Ordinary, extraordinary, tasty and sometimes just weird stuff that accounts for the 525600 minutes of a year of my life. Is it worth reading about? I don’t know, but I’d love you to tell me, and I’d love to hear about the stuff in your life.

Thanks for visiting.
