What is Anniebobs Blog about?

This is a blog all about how we spend our family time, whether that’s by cooking, crafting, days out at the beach or exploring the Lake District. I love photography and so I take a lot of pictures of us all while we’re out on our little adventures. I’m very passionate about getting outside whatever the season even though I live in one of the coldest places in the UK and I set up the instagram account @lovelifeoutside at the beginning of 2016 to inspire people to get outside and explore more.

Meet the family

I’m Alison, I write Anniebobs Blog and take most of the photos. I run Anniebobs Boutique from home and spend most of my time with my gorgeous little children and our dog Bob. I love photography, exploring the beautiful area we live, running, baking and trying new crafts.

My husband is Stuart, he’s an electrician and occasional photographer for the blog (if I force him). We’ve been together 14 years and married for 4, we met when I was 17 and he was 19 so we’ve pretty much grown up together. He talked me into adopting our jack russell Bob in 2010 and it was one of the best things we ever did . He loves going to the gym, playing football and cooks most of our meals when he can – he loves trying out new healthy recipes.

Annie was born in 2011 (on Stu’s birthday) and she is the most girly little girl you could ever meet. She loves all things pink and has an amazing imagination especially when it comes to what princess or mermaid she is pretending to be. Her favourite things include Teddy, her pink stuffed teddy who she was given on her first christmas, her best friend Lily who lives next door and all things Rapunzel.

Evan was born in 2014 and he is the most adorable little toddler you could ever meet. He’s so happy and chatty to everyone he meets – this brings a little bit of jealously from his sister who was used to getting everyone’s attention before he came along. His favourite things include Tickle, his stuffed monkey, climbing the furniture and any toy Annie is currently playing with.
