I’ve Never Been An Adult Without Children

My husband and I are really lucky to be able to enjoy one weekend a month where we can be child free for a night. For a little while before my Mum’s health deteriorated we even had two nights of freedom. When my Mum and Step-Dad had their kidney transplant operations the weekend’s stopped because they were recovering. They also …

Dodging The Rain & Having A Family Day

I have been feeling so much of that dreaded mum guilt lately. It sparks up the most at the weekends. We fill our weekdays with so many activities, trips to the shops, running arranges and getting the girls to various clubs that I sort of need the weekend as a break. It also becomes our cleaning time too. I always …

Having A Schedule On My Blog & YouTube Channel

One of my New Year resolutions was to create more of a schedule on both my YouTube channel and my blog. Last year my blog got a bit chaotic. I was posting several times a day and then would miss a few days. Although there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, it felt a bit messy to me. So far this …

How My Camera Has Changed The Way I Blog

I have been blogging for very nearly four years. When I think about what my life was like and just how far not only have I, but my family, come since I began my blog is just incredible. I have had so many opportunities that have changed me and shaped me. So much has changed since I first dipped my …

Blogging, It’s More Than Just Free Products

My husband sees things the old fashioned way. When I fell pregnant with P2, he asked me to be a stay at home mum so that I could watch her grow up and be there for her every step of the way. Just like his Mum was for him and for his brother. But the thought of giving up the …

Share Your Year – Our 2015

2015 is very nearly at an end and it’s time to reflect on the year that has gone past. I honestly don’t think that 2015 was an overly bad year for us so I’m going to reflect in 3 month sections. I’m linking up with Lauren at Belle Du Brighton who gave me this idea. January, February, March I kick …

#BEDN – 2 – Love Mondays

I think Monday has to be one of my favourite days of the week at the moment. Monday’s used to be one of the worst, it was either back to school for me and then it was back to work after a weekend but since being a stay at home mum to a school goer, Monday’s are about getting a …

“I hate Autumn!”

The weather seems to get blamed for quite a few things. This time I’m blaming it for my lack of mojo to blog. It also seems I’m not alone in my missing inspiration as a few other bloggers have recently declared a dry patch, ironically seeing as the weather certainly isn’t dry! We are only a few weeks into Autumn …

“The six week holidays will help to boost my personal blogging”

Just before the summer holidays started there was plenty of talk in the blogging community of fellow bloggers going on a break over the school holidays. I sat there knowing that I most definitely wouldn’t be having a break from blogging ever. We are now in the middle of the second week of the school holidays and I’m already finding …

Why Blogging Is A 24/7 Job

I think I was always destined to write. As a child I spent hours at a little desk in the kitchen writing stories. None of these stories were ever finished despite my dream of having a book published one day. I wish I still had the hundreds of sheets of paper that I went through. Really I am still writing …

A Day In The Life of a Mummy Blogger

Blogging most certainly takes over your life. It’s actually become part of the family. I get quite proud and emotional about it if I’m honest. My little space on the Internet has grown so amazingly in just two years. The things we’ve had the chance to experience, like days out and new products, makes life so much easier at times. …

Brilliant Banana Bread Recipe

Our meal plan that I created is now in full swing. I’ve made Fruity Oat Bars and lasagne (recipe will be available soon). I’m actually really enjoying baking and cooking, although the washing up at the end of cooking fresh is not so delightful. On Friday morning, Red Nose Day, we were all up even earlier than normal so I …
