Purple Ella about me
Find joy in the small things
Purple Ella (formally titled Purple Mum) was created in the summer of 2011. I was a new Mum of three, with a baby, a toddler and a preschooler. I needed a creative outlet and I very quickly developed a fierce passion for blogging. Since then the blog has become so much more than I could have ever imagined. It’s a place to share my passions, and pass on my ideas. It’s given the Purple family experiences that have shaped our family life.
These days Purple Ella has a focus on honest accounts of family life, our way. There are recipes that have worked for my family. As well as lots of yummy baking ideas, some sugar free. I share my tips for an organised life, though some may call me a tad uptight. I review products we’ve tried, places we’ve been and family holidays (still waiting for that offer from a cruise company though).
Meet the family;
I am Passionate, funny, and occasionally a bit of a drama queen. In my former life I got a BA in contemporary dance, and a diploma in circus skills. I used these skills for a successful five year career as a circus artist. Then along came the babies. I decided to stay at home to raise them, and have been doing so for over eight years now. I live for the sea, and dream of a Cornish cottage, and early morning bodyboarding (because I’m not really cool enough to surf). I love food, and really enjoy pottering around my kitchen,with it’s beautiful duck egg blue range. Writing is my biggest passion, closely followed by reading. One day I will get round to writing that novel.
Mr Purple, electrician extraordinaire (and Time Lord in his spare time). Hard working, and an absolutely brilliant Dad to the Purple children. He’s green fingered, pottering around the garden in any spare chance he has. He loves all things Tolkien and enjoys watching nature documentaries. When we first met and I asked him what his ambition in life was, he told me he just wanted to be happy. He is definitely a man of simple pleasures.
Super Kid, aged eight. He loves science, video games, lego and dancing. Serious and playful in equal measure, and often found curled up with a book.
Robo Boy, aged six. He loves Minecraft, photography,drawing, and his friends. Passionate, and very caring he’s the peacekeeper of the family. His hugs are legendary and given a chance he would never stop talking.
Wonder girl, aged three. She loves all things girly. She likes to dress up in her favourite princess dress, team it with plenty of multicoloured plastic jewellery, and sing and dance around the living room. Funny, quirky and bright as a button, she adores her brothers and likes getting her own way.
