About Me

Welcome to That British Betty Blog

I’m Lisa Valentine; a thirtysomething PR person by day, hobby blogger by night.

I reside in the North West of England with my husband, Adam, my two teenage daughters and our three feline rescue buddies. That British Betty blog is my way of documenting the adventures so far, from our various trips across the pond, our favourite foodie places and expeditions to the more mundane, everyday kind of moments.

If you’re looking for a polished influencer blog filled with professional pictures and a carefully curated lifestyle, then I’m afraid you’re in the wrong place. My life is unashamedly messy, unconventional, fun, authentic and on occasion, brutally honest. That said, I do hope you’ll stick around and enjoy my slightly eclectic ramblings along the way.

For PR requests and collaborations, you can contact me here.

      Hi Carys

      I am indeed! 🙂 Small world eh? It sounds like you have an interesting story to tell! I’ve never written a book before so can’t offer much help but I personally find that writing a blog helps me to keep track of our life, events, the important things and is lovely to read back on years later when all the smaller details seem to have been forgotten. It’s almost like a public diary for me.

      I hope that helps a little bit!

      Lisa x
