About Me – Holly

I’m Holly, a twenty-something Mom to Pickle with a lifelong love of theatre, crafting and fresh air hoping to make the most of my local area living just south of Birmingham. My little family currently consists of myself, LPD (Little Pickle’s Dad) and our baby boy Pickle who was born in June 2016.

Special family time at Center Parcs!

Before becoming a parent, I worked in theatre (having had jobs at the Royal Shakespeare Company, mac birmingham and the National Youth Theatre) and I’m passionate about the role creativity plays in the lives of us all but especially children and young people. I consider instilling a love of all kind of art forms to our little boy part of my job as his Mom, and I hope to encourage other parents to do the same, helping you to overcome whatever barriers or obstacles may be in your way.

As a family, we love outdoors adventures and can often be found out geocaching, camping or even running a race or two. We love trying new things and are very much looking forward to sharing our ideas, tips and experiences with you.

First time here?

    My name is Mary Johnson and I am a freelance editor and writer. I am currently collaborating with different pages producing articles and blog posts about all kinds of topics. While visiting your blog, it occurred to me to ask you if you would be interested in a content-related collaboration with your website. I have an article idea that I believe fits the content of your page quite well.

    Thanks in advance for your time and I am looking forward to your reply.

    Best regards,

    Mary Johnson
