Welcome to Our Daly Life – a blog about a ‘blended’ family known as the Daly’s that will hopefully have input from all of us at some point or another. All of us being:
Charlotte – Mum, Business Owner, Wife and general stress head,
Ron – Stepdad, Business Owner, Husband and one whom never gets stressed
Jessica, daughter no 1, 8yrs old going on 18!
Natalie, daughter no 2, 6yrs old and lives life to the full!
We are an unconventional family to say the least. I was previously married for 14yrs and had two lovely children. 4 1/2 years ago I became a singleton again, and quite happily plodded along through life with my two lovely children.
I met Ron – thanks to a bit of online dating, and we married a year after we met in February 2014. However, here is where we get even more unconventional, for whilst we are married – currently, we don’t actually live together, in fact, we don’t even live in the same county, never mind town or house! This is more for practical purposes as his business is over in Todmorden and mine is here in lovely Leeds. So for the past 18 months of blissful marriage we have lived apart.
Odd, strange, peculiar I know.. but it works.. for now at least..
But we are set to start a new journey in our life together – we are heading towards ditching the unconventional, for the more conventional and are looking to actually live under the same roof in the not too distant future.
Our lives are about to take a dramatic change, and in our Blog I hope to document and record for posterity the new chapter we are about to begin.
I don’t pretend to be a great writer, witty, or original, but I am honest (brutally sometimes!), and I have set it my mission to get all the family involved in our blog. So expect not only my own personal musings, but also comments from a Step Dad, learning the ropes, from an 8yr old whose world revolves around something different every day depending on how the mood takes her, and the odd sentence or two from a 6yr old who is cheeky, delightful and has some of the greatest one liners.
