Five Adventurers

Five Adventurers, a family blogging from the North of England

Five Adventurers are a British family living in the North of England and their blog documents their travels across the globe and closer to home. Their blog began as a way of recording and remembering all the trips and adventures they make, hoping one day for it to be their way of staying in touch with family and friends. They love to travel and have been lucky to explore lots of the world since marrying in 2006.  Travelling with their little adventurers in tow has been as rewarding and enjoyable as any of the trips they’ve taken before. Seeing the world through the eyes of even the youngest of adventurers brings the magic most adults fail to see.

Life With Boys

Kirsty and her son, from Life With Boys blog

Based in rainy Scotland, Kirsty shares the realities of family life, first time parenthood and travel with a toddler – which is not always straight forward! A writer, photographer, trip co-ordinator  (and the one who stresses when things don’t go to plan), she has created an online space to share her experiences, stories and life with her two boys – partner Jordan and son Harrison. Two years later, that online space is still going strong. With Life With Boys you can expect ordinary moments, exciting travels, complete transparency and an array of hats thrown in for good measure (it is cold in Scotland after all).

Mummy Barrow

Tanya aka Mummy Barrow, award winning UK blogger

T has been blogging as Mummy Barrow for seven years now and finds she now introduces herself as Mummy Barrow to people she meets for the first time! A mother of three, T has dabbled in everything from being a nanny to property management to being a PA. Today you’ll find Mummy Barrow blogging full time from her home in Hampshire. She also fulfilled a bit of a dream in 2017 by creating her own gin, not a life long dream as she hated the stuff five years ago. But once the idea of creating it was in her head, there was no stopping her.

T’s blog has taken her to Africa with Comic Relief several times, given her family cars to test drive, a kitchen full of gadgets, and the FA cup in their lounge for a day.


Beth, also known as Twinderelmo - a UK family and lifestyle blogger

Beth is a 30-something, stay at home parent based in Shropshire, living with her husband, nine year old son Charlie and four year old identical twin daughters. Twinderelmo is a parenting and lifestyle blog founded in 2013 and documents the real life side of parenting with a good dollop of humour and sarcasm in for good measure.

The Unlikely Dad

Tom, The Unlikely Dad - a family blogger from the UK

Meet Tom, The Unlikely Dad – 33 and father to his wonderful son. An adoptive dad. A gay dad. Or maybe just a dad. Meeting his (now) husband when he was just 17, they’re still going strong 15 years later – despite the challenges of college, various career moves, flat and house moves. It was when the age of 30 started creeping up that Tom knew he wanted to be a dad, likening it to that moment women are known to have… you know, when their body clock just ‘PINGS!’.

Tom and Daniel embarked on their adoption journey and nine months later, they saw a photo of their baby boy. He was 10 months old and they knew they were looking at their son – in that moment life changed forever. Tom shares his stories of real dad life, hopefully showing you that we’re all in this together.
