Little Man’s School Induction

Last Monday we went along to Little Man’s parents induction meeting at school. We found out who is teacher will be, checked whether his friends will be with him, looked around his classroom and bought a variety of bags, bottles, kit and uniform. It appears that this is really happening. The good news is that he will be in the same class as his three closest friends from nursery. I think this will really help him settle in and makes the thought of school a lot more appealing to him knowing he can be with his mates all day. It’s Read more >

5 Reasons to Snail Mail

5 Reasons to Snail Mail

It’s no secret that I love to send snail mail and am a huge advocate of taking time out to put pen to paper. It’s one of those hobbies that becomes just a normal part of life, that pops up and raises a smile at random times and that offers me an hour here and there immersed in my stationery supplies catching up with friends. Most of whom I’ve never actually met, yet they are friends all the same. Writing letters and having pen pals, might seem old-fashioned and pointless in this digital age, but I can think of 5 Read more >


4 Tips For Selling Furniture Online

It can be tempting to go down to the dump with your unwanted furniture, but giving it a new home could be an easy way to prevent throwing it away and even make some extra cash. The trend of upcycling furniture is still going strong, so even if the condition isn’t the best it could be, someone out there just might be looking to use it in their project, or give it a new lease of life. Accurately measure furniture Having accurate measurements is so important, and many only go shopping once they know exactly how much room they’ve got Read more >

Siblings June 2017

As I write this month’s post, I have both kids at home with me. Right now, I hear the Muppets Most Wanted soundtrack playing, they are off in another room with swords, costumes and a lot of laughter. This is a normal day. When they are together there is always laughter, imaginary play and a lot of noise! They do quieten down when watching TV, but I’d say that’s about the only time when friction can arise between these two as TV choices are clearly the most important and contentious decisions they make all day! As Little Man comes up Read more >

Tomorrow I Will Be 40

Or to put it another way, today’s the last day of being in my thirties. I have spent the last few days celebrating, as Friday was the Husband’s 41st birthday and then we had the weekend to ourselves whilst the kids stayed at my mum’s. It was lovely. Today we have Little Man with us so we’ll be off out on an adventure before picking up Boo later. Then tomorrow, on the big day, Little Man will be at nursery, so it’s just the two of us again and I am doing what every self-respecting bookworm does. Visiting a huge second Read more >

The Pen Pal Sign Up – June 2017

Earlier this year I ran my first pen pal sign up. Though I regularly run book and stationery swaps, this one was a bit different as this one was all about developing longer term friendships and I also found it took me a lot longer to put people together and administer! But it was worth it. I’ve had several people thanking me for the difference it has made to them and I myself now have several lovely new pen pals. Since running it I’ve had lots of people asking me to do one again, so here it is, just for Read more >

Everdine Review

You may have spotted recently that I am getting back to the gym. As I want to feel fitter and healthier, I have also been pondering our meal options. We need to eat more healthily, though I often struggle to make the time to cook from scratch and feel I lack the patience and skills to do so. I also feel we’ve got into a rut with some of our meals, so I wanted to try new ideas. With all of these thoughts buzzing round my head, when Everdine got in touch asking me to review their meal service it was actually Read more >


A Letter to My Daughter ’10 Things I Admire About You’

My daughter is now 7 years old. She’s already counting down and making plans for her eighth birthday, which isn’t until October. Fortunately, the gift request list is yet to materialise! She seems to be growing up so quickly, the days are just flying by as I see a beautiful little girl maturing and developing in front of my eyes. I am very proud of Boo. Yes, she drives me potty sometimes, but of course I absolutely adore her and wouldn’t want to change a single thing about her. As mums are entirely allowed to do, I can declare her perfect, Read more >

Come Join the #BringBackPaper Club!

You may have spotted that I ran a pen pal sign up here recently. Well, it went down very well and I have to say I was a little surprised by just how many people did sign up for it. I’d imagined I would be receiving five or six people looking for pen pals, but it was a lot more than that! So much so that it did take me a few hours more than I’d anticipated to match everyone up, double check and then triple check that it all worked, before emailing everyone with their new pen pal details.

YorkTest FoodScan Junior Review & Giveaway

You may remember that a few weeks ago, I shared with you my YorkTest food intolerance review, sharing the process that I went through (nice and simple) to my results and how I was getting on. Well today I want to talk about their new FoodScan Junior tests, designed for children. The Junior Test Kits The testing process for FoodScan Junior from a customer’s point of view is the same as that of an adult. The difference is that the kits include a sticker for the child and you need to somehow persuade said child to have a blood test. Read more >
