In a world of bite sized, ‘snackable content’ (as we say in the industry), I wanted to do the opposite, and spend my spare moments during my third and final maternity leave writing stories and essays about the minutia of our daily lives. There are so many little things that happen, or that the kids say, that I want to remember in vivid detail, but I know that I won’t, unless I write it all down. If there’s anything I’ve learnt from hanging out with my 2 year old, it’s that sometimes you just have to slow down, take in the details, and just appreciate them in that moment.

This blog is my attempt at doing that.

My real name is Angie Perrett and I live in London with my husband and 3 kids – Howie, Morgan and Nova.
