#MySundayPhoto – Taekwondo Exam

I’ve failed at the second week of uploading My Sunday Photo on time. Ok granted it is still Sunday but I’m writing this very late. I have been poorly all day, I’ve caught what my girls have had all week which they’ve so kindly passed to me now. We are child free for four nights and we are half way …

#MySundayPhoto – Snails Pace Of Life

It has shockingly been well over a year since I last took part in My Sunday Photo and after spending some time with the blogger who hosts this linky, I felt inspired to join in again. I definitely feel like I have been losing my personal blogging mojo recently and perhaps this may help ignite it once more. I found …

Why Did I Go To My 4th #BML17 Blogging Conference?

If you are not part of the blogging world then you probably don’t know that there are conferences for bloggers. The parenting world of blogging alone has quite a few to offer but when I first started blogging nearly five years ago, BritMums Live seemed to be where all the action was at. Each year sort of had a different …

My Feelings On Our Last Night At Home

I am writing this sat on the end of P3s bed. There’s the sound of snoring and a sense of peace finally. It’s been a long weekend of lots of tears, tantrums and shouting. We have boxes piled up everywhere ready to throw our entire life into a van and unpack it the other side to start a fresh adventure. …

My Weight Loss Journey With BodyChef – Update 2

It’s been a while since I updated you last on my weight loss journey. Life sort of got in the way, I took a few breaks in the BodyChef diet plan due to press trips and keeping up with these got a bit confusing. In this update I wanted to share exactly what a diet delivery plan looks like each …

There’s A Gas Leak In Our House

The weather has been pretty rubbish lately which is just typical seeing as it’s the school holidays. On Sunday the sun actually made an appearance for a little while and so we headed to a lovely country pub we have found recently.

My Weight Loss Journey With BodyChef – Introduction

I recently wrote about my lack of body confidence and positivity. I posted a photo of myself on social media and had a lovely response. Most people did the usual “you look amazing” stuff and a few people actually understood what I was trying to get across. The thing is I am not stupid, I am definitely not overweight to …

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 …

Fearing For Our Future – Another Terrorist Attack

I was woken up this morning to the sound of P2 shouting “Mummy” at 5:30am. This is normal and it’s something that drives me insane every single day. As I got back into bed I checked my phone and there was a notification from our lovely friend in Orlando. She asked if we were all ok and that she was …

What’s In My Bag, The Mummy Edition

I really enjoy watching What’s In My Bag videos on YouTube. It’s a simple way to be nosy but also to get some ideas. Sometimes I am literally shocked at the amount of stuff people have in their bags. A whole makeup kit or enough nappies to last a week. I just don’t think it is necessary and I have …

Ella’s Kitchen The Easy Family Cookbook Challenge

My girls are becoming increasingly interested in cooking. I recently taught them how to toast their own crumpets and it was lovely to see their proud faces when they did it all by themselves (with assistance obviously). We were recently asked by Ella’s Kitchen to take part in a cooking challenge with the girls using their brand new cooking book named the …
