Make Your Garden a Perfect Place for Your Kids

After a few months in hiding (during a season where it was supposed to be out in full view!), the sun is starting to really make its presence known. It’s about this time that parents start to turn more of their attention to the garden. Not just for their own pleasure, of course, but as an outdoor area for their…

Camping with Kids: A How to Guide

Since having children our holidays have changed dramatically. Long gone are the luxury hotels, city breaks and spa’s.  Welcomed are the outdoors, camping and four pairs of wellies!

Making the Most of Life Around Shift Work

Since Hub’s changed his job two years ago, as a family we’ve had to get used to living life around his shift patterns.  Previously he worked Monday to Friday.  They were long hours and he brought a lot of work home, but it was Monday to Friday nonetheless.  He was always here during the night and our weekends were guaranteed downtime from the daily grind.…

I’m not the Mother I Thought I’d be.

Even before I was pregnant I had a clear idea of who I would be as a mother.  My children would listen to me, they wouldn’t throw tantrums and we would enjoy playing all day.  I also didn’t feel like I would need to work, being a SAHM would be enough.  I had the rest of my life planned out. After…
