Hi. I’m Sophie, and this is my blog! I’m a newly 30 year old (!!!) wife to Chris and, as I’ve found out when moving house, a big hoarder of useless crap!
I love cocktails, films, reading, cocktails, baking, blogging, cocktails, the idea of crafting, and…did I already say cocktails!?
My husband and I have been together since 2005 (some may argue longer!), moved in together in 2010, and finally got married in May 2013 on a gloriously rainy day!! (Supposedly it’s good luck to get rain on your veil, so we’ll have loads of good luck!). We left it a few months before we went on honeymoon so we could recoup, and in September we jetted off to New York for just under a week, followed by 2 weeks travelling around California. It was simply amazing! (Ooops, realised that I never wrote about the 3rd leg of our honeymoon – from San Francisco back to LA, maybe I’ll get around to it one day!)
After our return from honeymoon, we started looking for our first house, as previously we’d been renting. After having an offer accepted on a lovely house just outside of High Wycombe at the end of October, we got they keys at the beginning of February 2014, and took the next month to move all of our crap across!
Our first baby was born on 1st May 2016, a little girl called Isla Jean Durrans. We’re both still getting our heads around being parents, and very much learning as we go, but so far, so good! Having been pregnant, and now breastfeeding means that my love of cocktails has been on the back burner for a while. Never had I craved a mojito so much! I think this will very soon have to be rectified!
This blog is, as the name suggests, about Life As Mrs D! The trials and tribulations, the boring and the busy, the moments and the madness, the loves and the laughs.
