ABOUT US

enchanted-pixie-about-us

Enchanted Pixie began back in 2010, I was a full-time Mama with three little girls at home. I began blogging to document our day-to-day life and also to give myself something creative to do. I didn’t know much about the world of blogging when I began, but what started as a hobby has grown into something so much more. Six years on, this is the longest I’ve ever stuck at any one thing for – something I’m pretty proud of! Now I work part-time on this blog while I homeschool my four kiddos.

Enchanted Pixie is still a diary of our family life. It’s where I talk about motherhood, parenting, home education, things we’ve done, places we’ve been {or would like to go}, special moments and the everyday. I feel blessed to be able to call this my job – for it means I can help to support my family while spending my days with them.

This space has grown and changed as I have, and indeed as my family has. There are five of us now, Mama, three girls and one little boy. I write about what I know and love, what matters most to us and how we live our life. It’s not perfect, or extraordinary, but it is our story.

About Me…

polly-1

I’m the writer behind this blog – H!ai I’m Polly, a single Mama of four fab kiddos – 3 girls (14, 11 & 8) and 1 little boy who is 3. I’ve spent the last 13 years being a Mummy which is the best job in the world. I love being home with my kiddos, getting to spend so much time with them and watch them grow. I worked in retail and as a PA before I became a mummy. I also used to run an online jewellery shop {which I shut down whilst pregnant with my fourth child to focus on family and this blog}.

I’ve been vegan for a year, I love folk music, earl grey tea, trashy novels, working out, long walks, sitting around the firepit, sleeping under the stars, morning snuggles with my kiddos and long soaks in a hot bath.

Lola…

Lola - Enchanted Pixie

Lola is my firstborn, the little lady that made me a mummy. She is almost 15 years old, she tried a year in school and is now back being home-educated {yay!}! She’s a history obsessed, book-loving, loving girl. Ever since she learned to read she’s devoured books – especially history books. She knows endless trivia about things, people and places from the past that I’ve never even heard of!

She is an Explorer Scout, volunteers at a Brownie group, is a member of a youth theatre writes stories and loves YouTube – especially Dan and Phil! She’s the girl that led us to our homeschooling journey.

Kiki…

Kiki - Enchanted Pixie

My second born. Kiki is 11 years old, and arrived after a fast 2 hour labour – I don’t think she’s slowed down since!

Full of mischief, she’s always been a bundle of fun. As soon as she could walk she wanted to follow Lola around and do whatever she was doing. She’s the funniest, smiliest, sweetest little girl – though she does love to wind her sisters up too!

She loves doing gymnastics, going to guides and youth theatre, watching YouTubers, spending time with her friends, make upand crafting – she is always making things!

Baya…

Baya - Enchanted Pixie

Baya is my third born daughter – about to turn 9, she was the baby of the family for almost 6 years. She’s always laughing her funny little laugh, loves to be doing whatever her big sisters are. She loves cuddles and reading books, doing gymnastics and making Hama bead creations. She loves horses and is a vegetarian!

She’s grown up so much since she became a big sister, though she still hates sleeping in a room on her own!

 

Vega…

Beastie - Enchanted Pixie

My fourth baby and first boy! We were very surprised to find out he was going to be a boy – we’d fully expected another girl! He was born three days after Christmas in 2014 and completed my family. He’s a bundle of fun now and he has his big sisters wrapped around his little finger!

He loves to play with the girls {and their toys}, loves cuddles, anything with whells and pinching food out of the pantry. He loves music so much – you’ll often find him stood in front of the radio dancing away!
