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. …

Why Podcasts are my New Found Love


Whilst driving and in the gym I’m always plugged in, usually to the radio or the never ending playlists on my phone.  I’m not into any specific genre, so I often vary the station I listen to or the playlist I shuffle through.  However, of late I’ve noticed myself skipping tracks and stations.  I’m bored of the endless rattling on the…

Two Under One…


Since becoming a Mother of two and a family of four, my world has been turned upside down and inside out for the second time in a year.  Now don’t get me wrong I wouldn’t change anything for the world (maybe a full nights sleep, but not the world), but sometimes I dream of a long relaxing spa day and…

Ten Things I Love about Having a Toddler…


The last day in May marks the arrival of my first born into the world. It’s so hard to believe that it’s been a whole year since Baby J was born, it’s even harder to believe that within that same year our second came along. Coming up to her birthday Baby J is toddling, climbing all over the furniture and is…
