Hi and thank you for stopping by my lifestyle blog by Claire Justine.
I am Claire, a mum of 4 from Nottinghamshire UK who loves to blog. I have now been blogging over 7 years as a hobby and Autumn last year (2017) I decided to make it my job.
You may know me from I Wasn’t Expecting That, Coffee Break Reads or Mollie The Border Collie!? I have written a few blogs over the last 7 years but this one is here to stay.
My babies were small when I first started blogging now all but 1 is taller than me. I have loved every minute of writing my blog and I hope to enjoy the next 7 years just a much.
Last year was a tough one for our family and our little girl. At 12 year old my Daughter got diagnosed with an eye tumour, coeliac disease, vitiligo, vitamin D deficiency, and to make things worse she needed 4 teeth out and a bridge to straighten out her jaw before a brace fitted!
I am hoping now that year is over, things start to improve!
Leading a gluten-free diet has been challenging but we are getting there nicely.
Working from home is perfect for me so I am here to take her to all her hospital appointments.
Thankfully now all the diagnoses have been made these appointments are starting to slow down.
2018 is going to be a good year. I can feel it in the air, it will be pack full of fashion, food, fitness and lifestyle posts here too.
I hope you will keep stopping by and have a read?
Anyway a bit about me for anyone new here:
I’m a 45-year old married mum of 4, who Love’s to run and if I work hard enough maybe one day I will be good at it!?!

2015 was a great year for me and my blog. The highlight for me was going to Marisota’s head office in Manchester for the day to take part in a photo shoot. I was so nervous as I had never done anything like this before but I loved every minute of it.
My 4 children. This picture is a about 6 years old now. It is so much hard work getting a picture of everyone together nowadays.
It was so excited to have been featured in April 2013 edition of Red Magazine.
