About me

My name’s Tracey Marie Britten, I’m 43 years old as of writing this (2015), I have been very happily married to Phil Britten for nearly 16 years and have 3 beautiful children: Nathan 15, Lewis 12 and Freya 10. I live in a perfect village call Earls Colne in North Essex UK and am surrounded by amazing friends and I have an awesome extended family too! How lucky am I!


I am the sort of person who walks down the street with a crazy smile on her face most days – I wake up feeling lucky and grateful and love my life. Ever since I was a little girl I have got my pleasure from helping others. I thought I couldn’t feel any more grateful until recently…

  1. Hi Cus, great blog and I hope just writing everything once helps you relax a bit more x just one thing, mums cancer wasn’t a return of the breast cancer, it was totally new and unrelated so please don’t worry about that xxx

  3. Hi Tracey glad to see you are keeping well, it seems like a lifetime ago that we were spending every Saturday around our first home, we are all good four kids and two dogs still living in Barnehurst.


  4. Hi Tracy, we met Tuesday morning at the Hospital.
    I wanted to wish you all the best and give a quick lecture on not overdoing it for a while! NO DOG WALKING!!
    anyone that who has met you will know what a happy inspiring and positive person you are,your introduction is very true.
    it was a real pleasure to have spent time with you , I sent you an air hug as you wheeled away, hope you felt it.
    if you need any advice from your surgery or just to chat don’t hesitate to get in touch.
    p.s my friend had Mr Griffiths… we nicknamed him Mr Smoothie!
    food in hospital I’m sure you know….. stick to the jacket potato!


    1. Hi Liz – thank you so much for finding me. You helped me so much! And yes I caught your air hug x I hope you realise how amazing you are. I believe paths are meant to cross! Don’t worry I won’t over do it! I’ve been there and messed stuff up before so learnt my lesson! How are your nipples looking? Hope all went well and they are a work of art! Keep well lovely lady xxxxx


      1. The Nipples are looking good – really makes a difference having them- didn’t realise how much I missed them!
        I have to wear shields which I made out of sponges they look a cross between fake ears and peeled spuds!
        Hope all is well with you and your family xx
