About me

My Photo
I'm just a mum who loves her family. I love growing flowers and vegetables, sewing, knitting, crochet, painting, cooking, dancing and running. I love colour, nature and weather. Most of all I love my time at home. Life doesn't always turn out as you expect and it isn't always easy. I started my blog to help me to appreciate how wonderful the world is, if you look in the right places, to focus on what does make me happy and to escape from what makes me sad. Ridgeway Cottage is a mixing pot of all my happiest memories, observations, hopes and dreams. A place to reflect and record the daily life of my wonderful family. Somewhere to connect with my amazing friends and make new ones.


  1. "I started my blog to help me to appreciate how wonderful the world is..." I love that. Without realizing it until now, writing my blog has done the same for me! It certainly helps me focus on the positive, the joys, and the sunny days. Nice to find you! I'm a fellow JustB blog student. ^^ Cheers from South Korea!

Thank you very much for taking the time to make a comment, it really brightens my day and everyone loves getting a little bit of feedback. If you are viewing my blog through Facebook on an iPad, then you need to open my blog in Safari to comment....such a pain but I can't work out any other way to do it
