Getting Crafty with Johnstone’s Magnetic Blackboard Paint


This week Hubs has had some well deserved leave annual leave from work and we’ve had such a great week spending time together as a family!  One of the great things about my husband is that he loves a project and so this week, Johnstone’s couldn’t have timed it better when they asked us to try out their Magnetic Blackboard Paint. …

Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the Disney Store!


Ever since I was small Disney has always been a big part of my life.  I loved nothing better than snuggling on the sofa to watch my favourite movies!  Now that I have children of my own I think it’s essential that I educate them on all things Disney, I have an extensive library that they’re already so familiar with!…

Why you Should get your Child into Sports


It’s a sad fact that a lot of us are spending most our time sitting in front of the television or on our gadgets. In fact kids are getting less exercise now than ever before, as they skip teams and sport groups in favour of playing indoors on tech devices instead.  We need to try to encourage them to take part in these…

Getting Through with Two Under Two


My eldest will be two May which means my time of parenting two under two is coming to an end.  It’s been an epic two years of tears, tantrums, laughs and memories.  Not all of the tears and tantrums were from the kids either!  I often wonder how I’ve gotten through the last two years alive, but I did and…

Reflections as my Littlest Turns One


I’m struggling to believe that a whole year has passed since the littlest of my girls was born.  This time last year I was waddling around waiting, not so patiently to be induced.  Excited to meet our second born and even more excited not to be pregnant, after carrying my first and second for what was very nearly eighteen months straight.…

Making the Most Winter with Children


Today I came across the #CountonChill video from Chill Insurance.  It got me thinking about how different our lives have been this last Winter, since we had children.  When Hubs and I were child free Winter or no Winter, we would be out!  Now that we are parents, when the chill kicks in we much prefer to stay indoors to soak…

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…

From SAHM to Working Mum: Acceptance and Changes


As the first birthday of my second baby draws near I’ve found myself re-evaluating our family situation.  Little E’s birthday will also mark the second anniversary of me giving up my business to become a SAHM.  A dream I’d had for years. For a while I thought that I could do the SAHM thing, I got pregnant so soon after…

A New Year and a New Start?


I’m not a big believer in New Year’s resolutions.  I think if i’m going to make a change I should just do it.  No preparing myself for it, just biting the bullet and going for it. However, as 2017 is fast approaching I can’t shake the niggling feeling that something has to give.  The freshness of the New Year seems…
