Hi I’m Helen, the Mum of the Casa Costello gang. We are a family of 5 from the North West, UK, consisting of me, Dermot and the 3 gorgeous girls, Millie (16), Violet (12) and Tara (7).
I can help you make easy, speedy meals & bakes for your busy family.
If you are planning a celebration, I have just the perfect cake.
If you want to find a really good book to read, I can recommend plenty.
About Me ( Helen)
I’ve been writing for 10 years now and love sharing recipes and lifestyle tips. Over the past few years, I’ve got the travel bug thanks to following Millie’s sporting achievements. I’m Joint President of our local WI and run a bi-monthly book club. I love to experiment in the kitchen and am definitely a lady that lunches!
I’m never knowingly seen without mascara, have long since given up shrinking to less than a size 16 & have the world’s worst sweet tooth. I’m allergic to hair dye and have a phobia of frogs.
Seriously the best Dad ever to our girls. He gets up at 4am to drive 60+ miles to Leeds for Millie’s training, puts a full days work in (He’s a Barber) then goes running with Violet & kicks about with Tara. He loves a glass of red at the end of that and has been known to be a bit of a clean freak.
Millie is our glamorous teen. About to start her A levels in the autumn. Confident and outgoing. Millie is an athlete on the Senior & Junior GB Team for Synchronised Swimming. She travels the world (with us behind her) competing and training. Millie is happy to review sports wear and is looking to work with sponsors.
Violet is the friendliest 12 year old you will ever meet. Sporty and arty, she loves to run several times a week and finds 5 miles EASY! Violet is desperate to work with animals when she is older and adores our cat, Alan.
And finally, our football mad youngest. The curly bossy one of the family who would play football and swim every minute of the day if we would let her.
