Diary of the Evans-Crittens is a personal family lifestyle blog.

It began as an online daily diary and has evolved into our space where we share our days out, crafts, food, style, theme nights, home, travel, toys, books, films and our day to day life with you.

We live in South West Wales by the sea.

I’m Claire, a teacher by trade and writer by nature.

I’m a Primary School teacher, who began to work at home as a Freelance Writer and Editor after my redundancy and the birth of my fourth child.

I love music– from musicals to metal, running– but I never find the time to do it, reading books, watching films and shows, cooking (and eating!), crafts (drawing, knitting, sewing, candle and soap making),  days out and travel, photography, fashion, beauty, baths and cuddles.
