Welcome to Attachment Mummy!

Are you a busy mum juggling family life, getting out the door on time, and trying to make the most of the precious free time you actually get with your kids?  Do you stress about feeding everyone well, finding enough time in the day, and keeping everyone happy - even yourself?

Mama, Attachment Mummy is for you!

I help busy families to make the most of their time together whilst eating better, managing money to afford travel and fun, and prioritising happiness and making the most of those precious years with our little ones. We know that family life isn't always easy.  Not to mention that elusive work-life balance...

But we believe that prioritising yourself, your family life, health and happiness is the key to a long and happy life.  So we offer solutions to help you eat better, save money - and make some - and spend more 'quality time' with the people you love. We only get 18 summers with our little ones after all.

Eat better, live better and choose happy.

Happiness isn’t some elusive end goal, but something we can all enjoy every day. Read a book, plan a family day out or holiday, bake a cake, or just relax.  Join us, and choose happy!

We work with tops brands like Heinz, Ecover, Carluccio's, Waitrose, Persil, English Heritage and Alpro to bring you inspiration for family fun, days out, work life balance, and great recipes.  As well as offering tons of parenting advice, tips for family life and guides to boost your and your family's happiness and wellbeing.

Our ideas and advice have been featured online and in the press, e.g. Prima Baby, Closer, The Daily Mail and even the BBC.

So who are we?

The Attachment Family consists of me, Leta, writer, influencer and attachment mama; the bloke, also known as Steve, a chef; and three small livewires.  Our three gorgeous daughters are Lara 9, Sophia 7, and Tatiana 5.  They love outdoor adventures, holidays, and playing and learning from sunrise to long after sunset.

We live near the West Sussex / Hampshire border, with lots of sunshine and a view of the sea.

Amongst other things, AttachmentMummy.com chronicles our family adventures near and far and our meandering home education journey, as well as offering busy families plenty of ideas, advice and inspiration.

Our five kitty fur babies also regularly feature on the blog and in lots of photos.

About Me

My background is as a cultural historian, teacher and researcher, in the UK and Russia. I also ran away to join the theatre for a few years, and spent a while travelling the world after my Masters, before ever getting a 'proper job'.  I taught for around a decade in total, before deciding staying at home with my own children was where I wanted to be.

AttachmentMummy was established in 2012 after my second daughter was born, and has grown exponentially since to become one of the top family lifestyle blogs in the UK.  Being able to work anywhere whenever it suits me is definitely my best job yet!

I love living down here by the sea and am most often found on a beach or under several cats and a laptop, when not home educating, reading or playing!  In my rare time off I love to indulge in afternoon tea and trips to the theatre, as well as having a bit of a tea and chocolate addiction.
