I’m Candace and I am Mom to 2 tweens, 4 cats, 2 rabbits and 9 chickens.
Us Three By The Sea blog was started in January 2013, the year that will forever be known as ‘The Year Of Change’.
Lucky old me turned 40 in March 2013. Yep, that’s right, the big 4 0. It seemed so far away yet just crept up so quickly.
I also lost my job as a Tax Inspector in the January due to ill health.
This forced me to reassess our lives and I made big life changing actions:
#1 – I went self employed. No more people in charge of me. I took control.
I own and run a bricks and mortar and online store; Lou Lou And Jim Jams Toys specialising in wooden educational toys. We also stock Thomas & Friends and Silvanian Families.
And if that is not enough I also do admin services, book-keeping and file tax returns for Sole Traders and Partnerships who are good at their jobs but need a helping hand with record keeping and admin services.
#2 – We moved house. Moving from the Midlands to Wales, to live by the Sea.
And the other two? My Son (The Boy, 14) and Daughter (The Girl, 13).
I have been a blogger since March 2010 but my first blog had developed so much since I started it and the title covered such a small part of what I wrote about.
This blog is a record of our journey as a family of three after we ran away to live by the sea but then had to relocate due to ill helth.
