Want To Take Better Photos? Learn With Me…

Since I started to blog, I’ve found myself developing an interest in photography. I see so many beautiful shots, and some blogs that I read are more about the photos than the words. I know that’ll never be me, as I’m much more about words and language than conveying stories …

The Theme Game Week 2

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in last week, our very first week. You can read more about how it all works, and this month’s yummy prize, here. Redpeffer and I were a little overwhelmed by how fantastic all of the posts were, and it was fascinating reading …

Blog Your Heart Out

The lovely Karen over at TwinLifeOnline tagged me in this meme about blogging, which I’ve enjoyed writing, as it’s made me really stop and think! Here are the questions and my answers… What/Who encouraged you to start blogging? I actually started with a blog for my business, last April, and …

#TheThemeGame Week 1

Here we are, kicking off our brand new game. I’m excited! It’s pretty simple, you link up a post, in any guise, with each week’s theme. So it may be a photo, written, vlogged, drawn – whatever you fancy. It’s then also a game, as there will be a weekly …

Climbing and Adoring

I adore this photo. My two little beauties, clearly ‘needing’ to get a little closer to see the TV ­čśë Boo climbs, clambers, and lounges all over the furniture and chairs. Leaping off the sofa onto the floor, is clearly a brilliant game, though I’m not sure she’s even that …

Let #TheThemeGame Begin!

I’m excited! This one’s been brewing for a little while, whilst we ironed out some kinks and made sure that it was just perfect for everyone, and it’s ready! The fabulous Iona at Redpeffer and I are bringing you a brand new linky. We like to think, hope, believe, that …

My Blog Plans for the New Year

I can hardly believe that I’ve been blogging for nearly 6 months now. The time has just flown-by, I’ve absolutely loved it, and I’ve written over 200 posts now. With the recently updated Tots100 scores, my blog’s latest ranking, amongst the thousands of blogs registered with them, is at 150, …

#ElfTakeover Week 4

Another week, another load of Marty photos…! The time has come to say goodbye to Marty. The Husband has been the Marty-mover each night, and whilst he has enjoyed it, I think he’s happy to see him go, as inspiration can run out!┬áHe will be missed by the children. Boo …

A Great Shopping Experience

This is a ‘credit where credit’s due’ post. We’ve just spent an afternoon out and about, and popped in to John Lewis, Tamworth, on our way home, to pick up a Click & Collect order. It being a Saturday afternoon, a few days before Christmas, I’d prepared myself for mayhem …

Just Use The Smileometer

How much do you spend on Christmas presents? How much is foolishly excessive and how much is just meagre? I don’t know! And does it vary depending on how many children you have and how old they are? My children are quite small – 4 and 1. This has it’s …

#ElfTakeover Week 3

Another busy week here for Marty!     Looking back at last week’s fun, Life With Munchers loved Mummy is a Gadget Geek’s Snowman fun and┬áSuch A Mama, with the elf dressing up over there! My personal favourites were Through Niks Lens – poor hostage elf! and Elf Pepper climbing …
