About Me

Welcome to Life at no2! It’s where we live (no literally, it is our house number) and what we do! And I’m Bel; extraordinary ordinary wife, mum and chief memory keeper.

By day, I’m a Mumma Bear to two beautifully independent and resilient kidlets, as well as a Primary School Teacher.

By night, when every else is tucked into bed I’m a blogger.

By weekend, my tattered super-mum costume is ripped off and I become a reality escape artist, vodka and day spa connoisseur.

Life at no2 is a place for me to unleash my inner creative by writing about our life here at no2, sharing our adventures and breaks from the mundane, taking photographs, sharing what’s on my mind and creating a sense of community with my readers.

Make sure to say hi when you pop by!

*Bel has been blogging for around eight years. Life at no2 was born from Bel’s original blog A Mums Reality  which began after the birth of her first child.

    Hi Bel!!! I’ve finally found your page!! You write beautifully!!! Good for you lady!! I’m not sure where we are writing about our mummies or grandmothers but I feel like sharing now.

    When I was young I remember fondly my mum’s everyday little ritual after she would get out of the shower. I would sit on the bed and watch her as she would rub lotion on her entire body. Although she had lumps and bumps, I remember that this moment where she would take 3 mins out of her day to nourish herself. I think it taught me to love the skin your in and have a quiet confidence in your body regardless of what shape you are.

    That’s instilled in me to this day and may also be why I justify my Body Shop obsession to my partner.

    At night when I would take comfort in ma, I would always be able to smell her lotion and it stills reminds me of her to this day.

    Love you mama xx
