3 Easy Ways a Bullet Journal Can Make You More Productive

3 Easy Ways a Bullet Journal Can Make You More Productive

You may week know that I love my bullet journal here. I have written a few posts about how I use mine, from a beginner’s guide through to using it for different purposes, and today I wanted to talk about it as a productivity tool, its primary purpose. When you see images of bullet journals, they’re often pretty, with great doodles, beautiful writing, carefully laid out grids and so on. Well, they are not like mine! I do use washi tape and brightly coloured pens to pretty it up, but as you’ll see in my video ‘Bullet Journal Set Up Read more >


Siblings November 2017

Another month has rolled around! So what’s this last month brought to my pair of siblings? We’ve had half term, a welcome break and it was great to see the two of them enjoying each other’s company all week. It’s funny how quickly I’ve adjusted to not having my Little Man at home with me during the week, but that being said, I do love school holidays and having them both with me. The week went by way too quickly, where they crammed in an overnight trip to Legoland and the Roald Dahl museum, catching up with friends, colouring, crafts Read more >


Fruity Wheat Bisks

I shared earlier this week that we’ve been working with Princes and their #mumsontherun campaign. They are encouraging us to keep canned fruit in for easy and speedy breakfasts, ensuring less food waste whilst helping us to get one of our five a day. The kids have really been enjoying getting involved in creating breakfast recipes each day, which is lovely to see and they are then really excited to try the different fruits and flavours. Little Man is always up for trying new things, though can then be fussy about what he does and doesn’t like. Boo on the Read more >

Why Do I Read?

I read. Quite a lot. I love to read. I always have a book on the go. I do tend to only read one at a time, unlike my daughter who has 3-4 going at the same time. As soon as I finish a book, I peruse my TBR pile and select my next read, I do enjoy this part! I have a lot of books on that pile as I’ve bought quite a few and have managed to acquire many more – when people know that you love to read, they like to pass books onto you – perfect. Read more >


Easy & Fruity Breakfast Recipes

Things have changed around here at breakfast, thanks to being involved in Princes’ Mums on the Run campaign. Princes are encouraging us to stock up with their canned fruit range, helping us to serve up healthy and easy breakfasts for our families. I have to say, when I first got involved in this, I had one of those, ‘why didn’t I think of this before?’ moments! I do like to ensure that the kids and I have plenty of fruit in our diets, but I hadn’t thought about using canned fruit to do it, or to add it to our Read more >


10 80s Movies That Your Kids Must See!

10 Eighties Movies That Your Kids Must See!

We love our films here. We have a family movie night every weekend, and I’d say that our kids have watched a fair few classics as well as the more recent releases and a whole raft of Disney pictures. As children from the eighties, the Husband and I have a real soft spot for 80s movies, from Rocky to Ferris Bueller to the Breakfast Club to Ghostbusters to Top Gun to Rambo, they cannot be beaten, and yes I could go on listing so many more favourites for a long time! And then there’s all of the brilliant family films Read more >

Do Your Kids Have Cool Grandparents?

Do your kids have cool grandparents? Or do you? What makes them cool? I’d say that my nan was pretty cool. She taught us how to play cards, and yes, we played for money. Big stakes, a penny a go! My brother and I used to love staying with her because she’d do those little things that we didn’t do at home, the out of the norm treats. Staying up that bit later, sharing a room when we stayed there, playing endless board games with us and taking us round to the local shop and buying us lots of sweets. Read more >


Stationery Swap November 2017

As thoughts turn to the festive season and treating others, it seems like a good time to treat ourselves too! So what could be more perfect for that than a #BringBackPaper stationery swap?! This is a chance for you to spread some happiness with happy mail as you enjoy putting together a parcel full of pretty papery goodies for your swap partner and then unwrap their offerings as a treat for yourself!

Bassetts Vitamins Supporting Family Fun!

The summer is now a dim and distant memory. The darker days are drawing in and it’s definitely feeling chillier. The heating is on and it’s so tempting to just stay in and hibernate until the spring! I have always preferred summertime and the warmer months, and there’s no doubt that they are better for us as they get us out and about. With autumn here and winter drawing in, we do find ourselves indoors that little bit more. We do try to get out at the weekends as it’s important to get as much daylight and exercise as we Read more >

#30DaysOfPaper

#30DaysofPaper November 2017

It has been ages since we have had an Instagram papery challenge, so let’s try one next month! This one will run from the 1st November, so I’m giving you a little bit of time to get ready and spread the word if you think others might like to have a go at this one too. If you’ve not seen this before, it’s an easy photo a day challenge over on Instagram designed to get you thinking paper, and admiring snaps of other people’s stationery stashes and shelfies. It’s a lovely way to connect with like-minded #BringBackPaper folks over on Instagram Read more >


Little Man’s First Parents Evening

Last week we went along to parents evening at the kids’ school. I was really looking forward to meeting with Little Man’s teacher. He tells me very little about his days, but what has delighted me is how happy he has been to go every single day since he started. He never really took to nursery, and though he settled there over time, he’d always prefer to be home and there were still wobbles on drop offs all the way up to his last day there. That being the case, I was unsure how he would get on at school, Read more >


An Energy Boost For The Holidays

Now that both of my children are at school, I have found that I’ve settled into something of a routine Monday to Friday each week, generally revolving around blog work, studying, the gym and housework. Yes, all the exciting things happen here! I am used to being alone for several hours each day and setting my own pace. Well, now it’s the half term holidays so I’m thinking that that’s all set to change! I am looking forward to throwing the routine out of the window and having slower starts to the day and then having plenty of fun planned Read more >
