My name is Jenny. I’m a West London mum of two (born 2010 and 2011). I started The Gingerbread House blog back in 2005 and it has grown along with me – charting my working life, engagement, marriage, the birth of my two gorgeous children and my return to work. I work in a Secondary school and juggle family, working life and my blog.
I love spending my free time on social media so if you want to find out a bit more about me and my family come and find me on Instagram, Pinterest or YouTube. Other social links can be found on my homepage.
