Weekend – hashtag family time

Weekend – hashtag family time

So what does this mean to the average family? Does it mean painting the perfect social media portrait of quality time with your kids, indulging in wonderful activities that everyone enjoys? Does it mean spending all your weekend with one another because the weeklong slog makes the dedicated time together so worth it? Or does … Continue reading

New Term = FREEDOM!

New Term = FREEDOM!

September is most definitely my favourite time of year. I love the holidays and I love the sunshine, but even more, I love a fresh start, a new term, and a quiet house! My social media feeds are full of a mix of weeping mothers, missing their kids, having spent the holidays together, creating memories. … Continue reading

Baby Blake is 1!

52 weeks ago you came into our lives, very quickly and a bit earlier than we were prepared for, but in the most magical way. Clearly a FOMO (fear of missing out-er) in the making, you just didn’t want to let the Christmas celebrations happen without you. Giving birth to you at home really was … Continue reading

5 Time Saving Tips for a New Mum

Babies swallow up time faster than you can say “bugger it’s 3pm”. They are the best waste of time, plus the really good ones stop you from doing any household chores. So here are my tips on how to save a bit of time when the baby is taking it all. 1. Getting dressed. Get … Continue reading

Waterbabies

Whilst You’re Here

We’re a busy, noisy household. 2 adults, 2 children, 1 cat and who knows how many fish. The toddler craves routine, the cat cries and stalks you if you dare feed him late, and the baby is settling herself into a nice cycle of eat, sleep, play that I really don’t want to mess with. … Continue reading

Super Toddler

Dexter has spent today dressed as Spiderman. I don’t mind this at all, even when we visited the local children’s centre for an arts and crafts session, or even when we visited B&M Bargains as a treat (yep we’re that family). Nope I don’t mind at all that my toddler is expressing himself and showing … Continue reading

Me Time

Last night I visited Champneys Henlow Health Resort for an impromptu Spa evening with 2 friends. Both boys were away in Weston-Super-Mare for a few nights and I thought “why not, the cat can survive without me for the evening!” The evening package is called Unwind and dine and you can arrive at the Spa from … Continue reading

20 Questions

At the start of 2014 I promised myself I would blog more, but I often struggle to feel inspired. Today, for example, I worked from home and wallowed in self-pity after having a wisdom tooth removed. Not very inspiring. So today’s blog post has been inspired by casual internet browsing. So here’s 20 questions, answered by me. 1. … Continue reading
