Getting Back To YouTube

I have been very quiet on my YouTube channel over the past few months, very quiet. In fact, my last upload was last summer! I think it was a case of having the kids at home during the summer, and I try not to work when they’re off school, and then settling into my new routine from September. The full time studying has taken some adjustment period, so I have prioritised that and then the blog in the time I’ve had available. But I have found I’ve missed sharing the odd video here and there, so I’m determined to get Read more >


Siblings January 2018

We had a brilliant Christmas break, a much needed fortnight off school for these two. We broke up quite late so they only had a couple of days off before the big day itself – it’d be fair to say that excitement levels were high! It actually worked quite well as they then had a couple of weeks together playing with their new toys and activities. And my two do like to play together. I’d say Boo likes to have the odd hour or two to herself here and there where she takes herself up to her room and plays Read more >

My Favourite Books of 2017

Can you even imagine how long it’s taken me to settle on my favourite books of 2017? I’d planned to share five, but I found I couldn’t narrow it down to so few, then I remembered that I am writing this post and can choose how many I like! So these are my eight favourite books of 2017… Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend by Jenny Colgan Sophie Chesterton is a girl about town – she knows all the right people, goes to all the right parties, and wears all the right clothes. But deep down she suspects that her Read more >

My Favourite Books of 2017

Meet the HiPP Buddies and the New Range!

As you know we’ve been working with the lovely team over at HiPP Organic sharing my reflections on the weaning days and this month they have a new savoury range out to shout about. Read on to meet the HiPP Buddies and the new range along with the chance to win some pouches…. Kids Takeover The team at HiPP Organic suggested that we have a kids takeover day, and it would be fair to say that they revelled in it! The kids took over for the day last week, making all of the normal decisions that I make. What do Read more >


The School Run Mums

It’s a funny old thing, the school run. With Boo now in Year 3, I’m into my fourth year of doing them, and to be honest, they felt like old-hat two weeks in, so nowadays they are very familiar ground. Of course, with Little Man recently starting in Reception, it’s added a new dimension to our mornings, but little’s really changed. Some new faces for me to get to know, and they are a lovely bunch. The thing that I have noticed most about these daily pick-ups is the level of camaraderie that they bring. It’s realising that some days, Read more >

The Pen Pal Sign Up January 2018

Happy New Year! We’ve had a lovely break here, and with the kids still off school, the fun is set to continue. But I thought it would be good to pop back here and kick off a new pen pal sign up for the brand new year. What better way to start the year than with a new snail mail hobby or by making a new friend? This is a chance to get yourself a pen pal or two. Of all of the Bring Back Paper activities that I run, I admit that this is the trickiest one to arrange Read more >

Christmas Cards – Love Them or Loathe Them?

My kids are both now at school, at primary school. Which means that they both like to send every classmate and teacher a Christmas card. Which means that they get 30 back. 30. Each. So there we have sixty cards that I need to find homes for, before even considering the cards that we all send to one another and those that we receive from family and friends. Which comes to my only issue with Christmas cards. Where to put them all?! I might have been known to sometimes accidentally lose a few of the school cards when they arrive Read more >


In Need of a Desk

I shared here yesterday a few thoughts on projects for the home next year, and it has got me thinking. It’s dangerous when that happens! My Little Man’s bedroom was decorated just before he was born, and as he’s now five, it could do with doing again to freshen it up. But while we’re doing that, we might as well make a few changes, right? Little Man’s room is the smallest of our three bedrooms, but it is still a good size. Before he came along it served as a guest room and comfortably homed a double bed and furniture Read more >


Interior Projects for 2018

I always get itchy feet in January so I am already anticipating feeling this way soon. At least I know it’s coming now, so it won’t sneak up on me and have me making hasty trips to buy random ill-thought out purchases just to assuage the need for change! It’s not that I ever want to move house or anything quite as significant as that, but I do tend to find myself looking around at my home and wondering how I can freshen it up. There’s normally a room or two that hasn’t been altered for a while that starts Read more >

Siblings December 2017

Ah, the excitement levels in our house right now! And we still have over a week left at school as my two break up on the 22nd. Christmas is such a special time, and of course children get excited by it all. With my two, as one is excited, then the other gets more excited, which makes the other more excited, and so it goes on. You’re picturing the noise and energy in my house now, aren’t you? I suspect it’s replicated in many households world over! Little Man performed in his nativity play last week, much to his big Read more >
