Hello and welcome to ClearlyBex!
I started blogging back in April 2013 and after taking a 2 year break back in August 2016 I returned back in the summer of 2018 and restored my blog again. I really missed blogging during my absence, I missed having my own little space to be creative (not that I feel creative most of the time), but having our online diary of our family adventures to share what we’ve been up to. 99.9% of the content on ClearlyBex is written by me, I love how I can personalise my own little space on the web and love attempting to get a bit geeky and clever with it too.
Let me introduce you to us;
Me (aka Bex)
Originally a northern lass from Leyland, Lancashire I was imported to life in Shropshire in January 2005 by Sam, he says he brought me to civilisation, I beg to differ! But that said, I am very happy with my life here. Sam and I tied the knot in July 2008 and was thrilled to introduce Lewis to our lives only 11 months later in June 2009. Leah came along less than 3 years later in March 2012. We were also blessed with another daughter too but sadly she was born too soon for life, we have also have suffered miscarriages too.
We are a very close, loving and caring family of 4, I am truly blessed to have them in my life and love sharing it with my readers, I suppose you can say I’m biased, sorry not sorry! I blog about all of my family, even the family who didn’t make it, and also about my trials and tribulations with Endometriosis, PCOS and now infertility.
Day to day I do a lot of juggling, from running the house, raising the kids, maintaining everyone’s timetables, blogging and also assisting in keeping our family business afloat.
Sam (the long suffering Hubby)
Poor Sam he puts up with a lot from me, but he’s still stood firmly by my side come what may. He’s my absolute rock. Born and raised in Shropshire he’s always lived here, thankfully he never picked up the Dawley twang (thank flipping goodness!). Sam’s the manager of our business in Newport, Shropshire, but not our home (PHEW!), professional Dry Cleaner by trade he’s been in the industry since his early teens.
Sam’s a bit of a fitness geek, loves a good run, especially after a day running round the shop (crazy man!) and has entered quite a few races, most recently the Chester Marathon in October 2018 and Hell Runner in Delamere Forest in October 2019!
Lewis (The eldest)
Lewis is the absolute apple of my eye, aged 10 he’s a very tall boy for his age, towering above his school friends and has whopping huge feet to boot. He’s very much a lover of the outdoors, and his favourite pastime right now is his archery. Aside from his bow, Lewis’s favourite things in the world are his beloved Mr Woof teddy, Formula 1, Lego and playing computer games. Given Lewis’s his height, can be very shy and nervous young man, always the worrier but when he’s in a joking and playful mood we embrace it and let him be the kid he should me.
Leah (The Youngest)
Meet the Diva of the house! If something doesn’t go her way, everyone knows about it. Leah’s just started her KS2 education progressing from Infant School into Junior School where she can torment her brother. Educationally she is absolutely floating by, she loves learning and really gets absorbed into her studies. Again like Lewis, Leah loves the outdoors, loves nothing more than a good woodland adventure and also adores riding her bike. She’s unfortunately too young for Archery yet, but when she turns 8 she’ll be up the field gaining her beginners course certificate to shoot. Her words not mine! Leah’s favourite things in the whole wide world are DogDog, her bike and her dolls.
