Hello you!

Welcome to the blog

Hey, I'm Emma aka MrsShilts. Mum to two amazing boys aged 11 and 6, Wife to Shilts and we live in Staffordshire on the edge of Cannock Chase Forest with our 1 year old Cockapoo, Cookie. Lovely to meet you!

Life in the Shilton household is never boring and you'll often find me planning our next home DIY project whilst the boys are getting creative with their Lego, watching fast jets or cars or playing various sports!

Take a look around and read our latest blog posts all about our busy family life here under the beautiful Staffordshire skies.

Days out

Making memories

We love to spend our weekends and holidays exploring new places and enjoying quality time together doing things we love and enjoy. Whether it's a day out at an attraction, watching our favourite BTCC racing drivers at a track, watching sports, visiting a new city or having a picnic out and about on a bike ride, we love it all!
