Welcome to my Our Favourite Jar.


My name is Claire and I am a 35 Mum of one, Step-Mum to two and Future wife to Mr P.



I work in a school office which I love. This means I am lucky enough to have lots of holidays, meaning more time to be Mum. Although please don’t think working in a school is easy because we are always on holiday… Anyone who works in a school will tell you they feel serious rage the feel when they are told that!


My blog began from a Christmas gift I made for the whole family. A jar full of lovely things to do together. our favourite jar


It soon became a place where I could talk honestly about the difficulties I faced when I lost my Mum. Writing has always been a passion and for the first time I felt like I was using it for good, helping people.

I also love to document family life. I love involving the children and Mr P in all blog related activities.


Since then it has grown in to something that I love. Each day I am blown away by the response to my posts and the fact that people choose to read my page is mind blowing.
