We’re going to BlogOn and can’t wait. Lots of meeting people, a few drinks and plenty of opportunities to learn. It’s going to be awesome!

So, ayup we’re David and Donetta. Some of you might already know us via social media but those of you reading this before the BlogOn event we’re a married blogging/vlogging couple from Doncaster, Yorkshire that cover all things lifestyle, parenting, marriage and anything else really.

Anyway, for you to get to know us a little better we’re joining the BlogOnToys Introduce Yourself Linky and we’ll start with a mug shot, so you know who to avoid 🙂

Donetta: Definitely Christmas. Seeing the kids faces on Christmas morning is magical.

If the internet vanished right now how would you share your message or life story without a blog?

David: I’d create my own newspaper and have the kids deliver it to everyone in our village before they went to school.
