All About Natalie

GIRL ABOUT NORTH YORKSHIRE

 

Hello! I’m Nat. I have a wonderful husband called Andrew, and an amazing daughter called Phoebe. We also have 2 fur babies – Eric and Daphne. They definitely love to keep us on our toes!

I am originally from a small seaside town in the North East of England but was always a country girl at heart. I remember watching ‘Escape to the Country’ and knowing that’s exactly what I wanted for my family. So, after a lot of discussions, planning and a few house-moves later, we finally found a little cottage in a pretty North Yorkshire village.

I love nothing more than getting out and about in this stunning County and feel so lucky to live somewhere so beautiful. As long as we have a flask of tea, we’re good to go. There is still so much we haven’t experienced yet, but we can’t wait to get started.

10 Random Facts About Me

  1. I met my husband when we were 14 years old and I knew right then I wanted to marry him, the rest shall we say history. He’s my absolute soul mate amd best friend, I feel so lucky to have found someone who just gets me.
  1. We are huge Liverpool F.C fans in our house and although I’ve yet to watch them in person(one day!!), making time to catch the game on the tv at the weekend with a cuppa or a glass of wine is just bliss!
  1. I just LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas! It really is the most wonderful time of the year for me. As soon as I see my first Christmas advert on the tv the Bailey’s comes out!
  1. My favourite way to exercise is Zumba, I find it a real feel good factor both mentally & physically. Even on days when you’re just not feeling it, a good booty shake never fails to get you back in the zone.
  1. I’ve suffered with mental health since my childhood but it all came to a head when I was 16 week’s pregnant (I’d not been aware of pre-natal depression back then so found it really scary when this happened to me). Luckily I’m a talker so I did get the support I needed eventually, I knew I had to get well for our precious little girl. My anxiety and ocd have played a big part in shaping my life and I know they’ve sadly held me back in some ways but I’m so proud of what I’ve overcome and I wouldn’t change anything about where I am today. I’m one lucky mam and wife.
  1. I’m such a foodie, there’s nothing I don’t like or won’t try. The funny thing is I was such a fussy eater as child, sometimes I wish that was the case now. But what can I say I love my grub!
  1. I adore interior design and home decor, we are currently in the process of renovating our little cottage. We vowed we’d never do another house up again but here we are! This one is the last one for a while, I might even delete the Rightmove app from my phone….maybe.
  1. I really enjoy landscape, nature and wildlife photography, I’m always taking snaps on my phone. We we live in such a beautiful part of the country so it’s great to get my walking boots with the family and get out and about.
  1. Pajamas are my favourite item of clothing! I’m a right homebird, nothing better than getting all cosy on an evening and watching my guilty pleasure which is QVC haha, anyone else?
  1. I trained as a Beauty Therapist in college. I remember getting student of the year but then realised it wasn’t for me, so I studied childcare and got a job as a Community Nursery Nurse & Family Support Worker. I worked in a primary school for a good few years too but once I had my daughter I became stay at home mam because my husband worked away . My last job was in Marks and Spencer, I used to joke I was always in there all the time so I might as well get a part time job.
