The Crowtherclan


I’m Michelle, devoted mummy to two beautiful, fun and energetic toddlers, Gabriel aged three and Willow, age two.

I’m a Probation Officer by day but by night I write and blog! I absolutely love to write and have done since a young age; starting a blog was something a toyed with for many years before I actually took the plunge in September 2012.

Essentially, I blog to diarise my time with and memories with our children. I want them to have a place they can come to and read all about their early years, and of course for myself to reminisce. I try to keep my blog positive and interesting with creative content as far I can (and have time to do). I also work with many companies in order to help promote smaller, or local businesses. I also try to write on behalf of charities as much as I can, and I regularly write content for other sites too.

I’m a very busy lady and although I work in a ‘day job’, and blog, I also run my own business Minnies Macaroon where I design and retail funky and unique crochet hats and Fairtrade toys.

This blog is dedicated to Matilda Mae and I am committed to raising money for The Lullaby Trust in her memory. Last year I skydived as part of Team #MMSkydive and in 2014 I jumped again, raising more money for the amazing Lullaby Trust.

I created and run the rotation curation account @keighleypeople on Twitter, I write a regular column for local newspaper The Keighley News and I also run Keighley’s Clandestine Cake Club, which is great, as I love to bake!

I take too much on, and you can regularly find me stressed with a gin and tonic and a huge piece of cake!

If you’d like to work in collaboration with me whether it be copywriting, sponsored posts publications or item reviews please feel free drop me an email!

Happy reading!

The eldest Crowtherclan child, Gabriel is the big brother everyone wanted! We think Gabriel has the best sense of humour, ever! Gabriel loves trains, cars, stories, dinosaurs, singing and running around pretending to be an aeroplane!


The newest kid on the block, born in December 2012 she has a very pretty face and the cheekiest smile! It’s giggles all round from this little lady. Very determined just like her Mummy, she is growing up far too quickly!

Willow also loves dancing, eating, cuddles and playing with her dolls. She also enjoys drawing on the living room walls..
