Welcome to Dirt, Diggers and Dinosaurs!!

I’m Emma, wife to ginger Yorkshireman Ben and Mummy to Stanley, James and Eli…yes, we fall into that weird grey area that is a family of five!

Follow for tales of our day to day activities, joyous moments of motherhood, massive Mum fails and life from a small terraced house with too many boys living in it.

This blog will review products that are a good fit for my family and may be of interest to other mums. I’ll also be recommending days out and activities for larger families, so I’ll get the grey hairs on your behalf!

I’m an official Wiki Mama which is a cool way of describing being a wikiplacesforkids.com ambassador. I’ll be showcasing any fab wikiplaces I discover in North Staffs & Cheshire East, basically championing great tried and tested family days out in my region. You can find my reviews on the website.

I also love where I live and will be promoting local events and attractions. I’ve got the best of both worlds living in the semi rural market town of Leek (Queen of the Moorlands don’t ya know!) and on the doorstep of Stoke-on-Trent or The Potteries as you may know it. I’m proud to be a #mystokestory Ambassador and will be getting the kids involved in our local heritage.

If you are a business owner reading this and you have a great family orientated product/experience to offer, then get in touch we’d love to work with you!

My recipe for this blog is much the same as my approach to life itself…completely random, mixed with a good handful of humour, and more than a sprinkling of sarcasm thrown in for good measure!

Follow me over on Instagram to see a visual diary of my non instaworthy life…and Facebook for more of the same but with unsuitable comments from my Mother-in-law thrown in too.

I hope you enjoy reading and come back often!
