Hello there, lovely reader.

I’m Donna, a digital marketing type in the north west by day and hobby blogger by night. I live in a 1930’s semi-detached house, with my husband, in a small town nestled between Liverpool and Manchester. Most weekends, you’ll find me living the simple life: drinking coffee, shopping and writing.

Polkadot Pink was born as the result of a bucket list. In my previous life as a full-time teacher, the one thing I really wanted to do was to write creatively but I never had the time! Whilst I spent my days teaching about the mechanics of writing, I craved time to spill my thoughts onto screen and slowly, but surely, my hobby turned into a passion and a new career!


Meet the family

Meet William – our cheeky chatterbox with a loving and warm personality. Affectionately nicknamed ‘Billy Mick’, he’s now a rambunctious toddler happy to engage in conversation with anyone who’ll listen – his favourite subject is tractors! William enjoys his weekly visit to our local library for read and rhyme time,  but he’s equally as happy to curl up on ‘a knee’ to ‘wead a book’.
