Welcome!  This is us: 2 parents, 3 daughters and 5 cats, living life by the sea, and enjoying lots of family adventures.

Writer, pro-blogger, mummy, cat mama, and wife, Leta has a background in teaching, research and academia.  With expertise in cultural and political history, Russian literature, natural pregnancy and birth, breastfeeding, attachment parenting, learning, home education and the importance of play, she is well placed to create content and offer consultancy on a range of subjects.  Other passions include afternoon tea, travel, nice hotels, long baths, good wine, theatre, reading constantly, and of course family fun.

Husband Steve has been a chef for more than a quarter of a century and loves baking and creating new recipes.  A former self-confessed geek, he still loves a bit of sci-fi and a superhero movie or two! Oh and coffee, lots of coffee.

Our daughters are Lara 7, Sophia 5 and Tatiana 3.  They love outdoor adventures, holidays, and playing and learning from sunrise to long after sunset.  We also have five fur babies: Yuri, Taya, Misha, Poppy and Jess.

We live on the sunny West Sussex coast, with a flower, fruit and vegetable-filled balcony, a busy kitchen, and a glimpse or two of the sea.
