Hi, I’m Davina, a thirty something mum of three, Rhys, age 17 (!!!) Belle, age 11, and Maddy, age 7.

My husband and bestest friend in the world, is Ben.. we’ve just celebrated 20 years together 🙂

We live in a little village in the countryside with our 3 British Shorthairs – Winnie, Tigger and Foofie. Rufus, the cheeky and lovable Coton De Tulier, and 5 chickens.. Don’t ask me their names, the children are constantly changing them!

If you’ve read my first two blogs here and here, you will already know me pretty well and understand why Essentially Davina is so important to me. You can can catch up with me on Instagram every day. If I’m not posting, I’m catching upon everyones little squares and always ready for a chat.. so come and say hi, or pop a comment below 🙂
