Michelle Reeves

Michelle Reeves is a forty-something, stay-at-home Mum of two. In 2008 she and her husband left behind everything they knew and loved in the UK and packed up their life into a few boxes for a three-year adventure in China. They arrived back in the summer of 2011 with a beautiful toddling daughter, and now the adventure continues with their miracle baby boy, born in November 2012. Michelle blogs her random musings on life and all things family at Bod for tea. She's a self-confessed control freak, and alongside writing endless lists, you'll probably find her muttering about life with two kids under five, trying to get fit, cooking a bit, reviewing stuff and generally spouting forth. She adores Spanish and has been trying to learn to speak it since University.
