So here I am after much talking and procrastinating with my very own blog! I’ve thought about doing this for quite some time, but have never managed to get round to it, so now with even less time than ever I have finally taken the plunge!  I love to read blog posts and I have my favourite ‘go to’ blogs when I have a quiet moment with a cuppa! I have never interacted on the blogging scene but hope that now I have got to grips with the set up a bit more I will become more actively involved.




We are ‘The Beales’, we live in Bangor, County Down, i’m Christine and my husband Chris and I have been married almost three years and our beautiful daughter, Hannah, has just turned one! We are loving parenthood but juggling family life with two full time careers on two separate shift patterns is no easy feat!



There is never a dull moment in our home and by my own admission I rarely sit still and am usually planning my next project! With the words of my tagline in mind I very much want this to be a platform to share the things I love and our everyday adventures, with other thoughts and musings thrown in along the way, so this will be my little space to document everything from family adventures to interiors, baking to knitting, crochet to up cycling, motherhood to gardening …… you get the idea…..and you will soon discover that I am never too far away from a cup of tea or coffee (albeit usually cold!)

I hope by capturing these moments I will create a beautiful memoir to look back on over the years and perhaps inspire you along the way! I would love you to join us on our little journey, please check us out on Instagram and keep an eye out for us appearing on other social media platforms!

I would love to hear from you.
