About Beth in a Box


Welcome to Beth in a Box, a personal blog all about… well, me.  I’m not really in a box of course but it has a certain ring to it, don’t you agree?

I’m Beth, wife to Jim since September 2013 and Mum to Garreth (12), Seren (8), Macsen (3), Enfys (2) and Anwen (May 2017).  We live in Monmouthshire, along the M4 corridor 10 minutes away from both of the Severn Bridges.  You can click here to find out more about each of us.

I started blogging in August 2009 and have written a fair few blogs in my time but I never really fell in love with them.  In November 2012, I started The Musing Housewife and it provided me with amazing opportunities, including creating a series of short films for National Trust Wales about their 50 Things to do before you’re 11 ¾.

In 2015, however, I began to suffer from what I like to call, Blogger’s Block.  The Musing Housewife left me feeling trapped and uninspired.  In March 2015, I made the decision to re-brand and Beth in a Box was born.

Rather than being trapped within a niche (of housework and family life), Beth in a Box has so much more scope.  While I am not going to stop writing about my family and our life, I can pretty much write about whatever the heck I please.

I hope you enjoy following our journey through life and my journey toward the person I will be when my life doesn’t revolve around school runs and pooey nappies.
