“I take him for granted”

I’ve been feeling very grateful lately. For having the husband I do. I take him for granted really, everything he’s done and keeps doing for us. P1 isn’t biologically his child, but right from the beginning he’s taken her under his wing and very quickly she called him “Dad” out of her own choice. Hubby didn’t have to do this, …

Kiddicare Sleep Dairy Project – Part 2

During February I was asked to write a sleep diary for Kiddicare. Along with other mums/dads they wanted to study various baby’s sleep patterns.

To My Princess 2 – 1 Year 3 Months

To my Princess 2, This month has seen the introduction to tantrums. I dread to think what you’ll be like during the “terrible 2s” stage. You’ll throw yourself onto the floor without a thought for what body part, usually your head, will get damaged in the process. I have to admit, seeing a tiny toddler sitting on her bum with …

Our Makeover Is Completed!

The new look has been completed!! How do you like our new logo/header that hubby and I created ourselves… Much more sophisticated than the previous one and has saved us some pounds!

My other Grandad passed away. He’ll be up there with you somewhere and I hope you can share many stories from my childhood with him. …

I’m absolutely in love with …

Kärcher SC2.500C Steam Cleaner Review

I was recently asked to review the Kärcher SC2.500C Steam Cleaner. My hubby was rather excited by this opportunity, however I felt a little wary. I’ve never understood how cleaning with steam could actually do the job properly and clean bacteria. After all steam is just water! The SC2.500C Steam Cleaner arrived in all it’s glory and it was like …
