What can I say... I am just Me... but that doesn't teach you anything about me now does it, so here goes...

Life: I'm Alice, I am a 30 something living in Reading, Berkshire, UK. I live with my lovely husband, more commonly known and referred to as 'The Hoff' and my two amazingly crazy sons, Kyd (the bonkers tween) & Rocky (the tornado of trouble). They are growing way too fast for my liking, I'd like to slow down time.

I am not your average 30 something girl, as it feels like I have lived enough life for any average 50 year old. Having, shall we say, a very colourful teenage life, then quite quickly followed by a shock teenage pregnancy, a 21 hour labour and the birth of my beautiful son... then 24 hours later followed the news of his Down Syndrome... All by the age of 16... Let's just say the years following the birth then had a very different feel to them than the previous madness. 

Loves: I love Indie and Rock music, music festivals, all things TV related, especially Reality TV shows... sad i know. I obviously also love a good bit of blogging, reviewing, crafting, ohhhh and Football... yes football... girls can like it too you know. I have a season ticket for Reading FC and love nothing more than watching a nice win at home with my boys at Madejski Stadium... when we actually win that is! I've even been a judge at the Football League Awards in the Best Family Club section, now THAT was epic.

Down Syndrome: My eldest is referred to as 'Kyd' in my blog, was born in 2002, shortly after his birth he was diagnosed with Down Syndrome... this has never stopped him in life, he's done more than most adults and he's only just beginning. Stories from the first few years of Kyd's life will no doubt be quite a big part of this blog as this makes up a huge part of me, so keep coming back and checking our updates if you want to find out more about our lovely little lives...
