My hubby turned 25 yesterday. I always struggle to buy for him and always end up feeling super guilty when I just can’t think of anything. He knows me so well and always gets really thoughtful gifts! I do know that he is heavily interested in his computer, so much so it takes up the whole counter in our kitchen, …

Sweet Dreamers Ewan The Dream Sheep Review

Regular readers will know that I’m an owner to a toddler that has struggled for 20 months to self-settle so I’ve been trying my hardest not to make the same mistakes with P3. I rarely allow her to fall asleep feeding and will always put her back in the SnuzPod at night. In all honesty P3 has been a fantastic …

Our Royal Ride With SmarTrike for Prince George’s First Birthday

My BritMums Live 2014 Experience

At 1:39pm hubby and I jumped on the train to London Bridge. I’d been in a bit of a panic that morning, stressing about the size of my bag and that I couldn’t fit everything in one. I was being quite selfish! There was hubby carrying a rather heavy rucksack whilst I complained of my aching feet, again all my …

“The house looks like Primark at Christmas!”

It’s been a week since the sickness bug started and about 5 days since it officially ended for me but I’m still not feeling 100% normal. It’s the school half term and we’ve done nothing remotely exciting which I feel totally guilty about. My blog has taken a bit of a side seat during our recovery process and the house …

Pipsy Koala Splash Mat, Foam Bath Animals & 2014 Calendar Review

Christmas seemed to be a bombardment of gifts and exciting new toys. We had wrapping and boxes everywhere. On P1s birthday we received a package from Pipsy Koala. Inside included their new calendar, foam bath animals and a splash mat. I’m a bit of a lover of calendars and diaries. I have to shamefully admit that I don’t think I’ve …

DP – Personal Space

To what extent is your blog a place for your own self-expression and creativity vs. a site designed to attract readers? How do you balance that?
