Is There A Right Way To Clean? Tips & Tricks From The Experts

Cleanliness is vital where children are concerned. When a new arrival appears on the scene it’s vitally important that the home is as sterile and clean as it can be for a few months, while the baby’s lungs strengthen. In a year your little one will crawl and then toddle, putting everything and anything in their mouths including juicy looking …

#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 …

Our New Cleaning Routine & Win Some Dettol Products

This month has seen some big changes in our house. I have actually managed to keep on top of the housework. It also coincided with the school holidays so it hasn’t been an easy task to keep on top of things and it did fall to pieces one week (the week P1 was away with her Grandparents) but we swiftly …

My Sunday Photo – 03/05/2015

We’ve had a pretty normal week this week. Nothing out of the ordinary except a play date for P1. This weekend, P1 and P2 have been with their Grandparents for their usual monthly sleepover and so we’ve been left with just P3. Previous months we have shipped P3 to my MiL for some child free time to have a meal …

“I want to cherish everything”

When your first baby comes along, the newborn bubble that we plop ourselves comfortably in lasts forever. There’s no rush to get out the house. The 6 week marker comes and goes. You realise you haven’t showered in three or four days, you certainly only ventured out of bed for the loo or to grab food. This was sort of …

“It’s like someone flicked a switch and made me motivated”

It’s Friday already which means that P1 has completed her first week back to school and we’ve completed our first week back in a slight routine. This week has really been different. It’s like someone flicked a switch and made me motivated to move instead of lazing on the sofa. I’m still struggling to get up early, physically getting up …

Back To School After The Christmas Holidays

I can’t quite figure out if the Christmas holidays went quickly or slowly. With the household being poorly pretty much the majority of the holidays, the days seemed to roll into one and it was over within a blink of the eye. On the other hand, it seems like forever since it was Christmas. I want to be more organised …

“Today has been a productively strange day”

Today has been a productively strange day. With P1 away on a double night sleepover with her Great-Grandad, P2 woke up at 6:50am. She snuggled in bed with us for about ten minutes before I took her downstairs for breakfast and some cBeebies. It was a slow morning really, hubby joined us downstairs and we just mooched. Hubby then went …

“For the first time ever I chose to tidy”

Following my post on how frustrated I was with my lack of motivation, I’d like to share with you something that may shock you. Tonight, I’ve had what seems like forever without P1 and my hubby. P1 has gone to her Great-Grandad’s for a sleepover and a “Great-Grandad day” tomorrow. My hubby has gone out with one of his friends …

“I’m kicking myself for swapping the rooms around to be honest”

I don’t know how we managed to co sleep for 6 months. I’m a complete lover of co sleeping don’t get me wrong. Back when P2 was more of a potato and breastfeeding, it was easier and it actually meant we got more sleep between us! It’s been terrible the past week. I’ve not slept from fear of P2 choking …

“yet another migraine with aura”

P2 woke once in the night again. 5am. I woke up actually feeling more tired though. I had a nice chilled morning researching bits for our new business when I got up to get some food and just like before I experienced yet another migraine with aura. After a lay down and a nap I feel ok now, luckily no …

Dyson DC34 Multi Floor Cordless Vacuum Cleaner Review

We’ve recently tried a Dyson DC34. This came at just the right time as my cream carpets began to turn a dirty colour with everyone moving stuff in and out of our new home. I suddenly realised that I didn’t have a hoover of any sort to fix this situation. My first impression of the cordless hand hoover was that …
