About US

Arepops is a family lifestyle blog based in South Wales, focusing on our life with our 2 kids (Pops,4 and R, 10 months). Pop’s attends a Welsh medium school and we will be blogging about how as non Welsh speaking parents we made the decision to send her and how we help support her learning.

If you are in the same situation then sign up and stick around as we share tips, support and printables to help!

I’m Ayse, it’s pronounced ‘eye-sha’ for anyone that was wondering.

I’m a mum of two girls and still getting my head around it all! We moved to Wales from London when I was pregnant with Pops and I made the choice to not go back to work… something I thought I’d never do growing up. I love mooching around charity shops and car boot sales and love to do crafty things, although my skill level doesn’t match my ambition!

Pops/bug, the boss… or so it seems sometimes!

She is 4 going on 14. Loves playing with her dolls and watching Youtube. She is loving, kind, considerate and a bit nuts.

Baby R, the new addition.

Our newest addition. She’s such a happy baby but HATES sleep… and being in the car. You’ll usually find her on the boob.

The man of the house. He works for Primark, loves football, playstation and eating noodles. He’s a giant child really! He’s the lighthearted spontaneous to my planning over thinking.
