How To Relax Tired Eyes

How To Relax Tired Eyes

Being a mum is tiring! Whether you’re a stay at home mum or a working mum I bet you fall into bed absolutely shattered every night. I know I do – I’m permanently exhausted and I only have the one child to deal with. I can’t imagine how tired mums of 2 kids or more are. I think it’s important we all get a bit of ‘me time’ on a regular basis >>

Our October Round-Up

  • November 1, 2016

Back in June I started doing a monthly round-up of what our family gets up to – I can’t believe I’m already writing about what we did in October! October has flown by, probably because we’ve had some busy weekends… Our October Round-up At the start of October we went on a day trip to London. We got on the train and visited The Natural History Museum, followed by a trip to >>

Family Friendly Halloween Films

The kids are dressed up, you’ve carved pumpkins, decorated the lounge and have the sweets ready. But what spooky film are you going to sit down and watch together? What Halloween movies are suitable for children? It’s hard to know which films you can watch with younger kids without scaring them too much. Here is a list of our favourite family friendly Halloween films to watch with small children… Disclaimer: >>

10 Reasons To Love Autumn

  • October 3, 2016

I am most definitely a summer person. I like warm weather, summery clothes and flip-flops – and I hate rain, wind and dark mornings. When spring arrives I get excited as it means summer is on its way – I just don’t get the same feeling for autumn. However, with the aim of being positive, I’ve decided to think of some reasons to love autumn… Autumn Walks As much as >>

Our September Round-Up

  • October 1, 2016

In my new(ish) blogging tradition it’s time for my monthly round-up on what we’ve been up to this month. September saw the end of the school holidays and back to our normal routine. Most mums were complaining that they had to start getting the kids out of the door early again, but for us we’d had to do this all summer hols anyway so that I could get Little H >>

Our August Round-Up

  • September 1, 2016

I can’t believe it’s September already! Where on earth has this summer gone? Back to school next week, and then darker mornings and colder weather will be on the way. How depressing. Before I start getting sad over the end of summer here’s a little round up of what we got up to in August… August Round-Up Last month’s round up ended just as we jetted off on holiday to Florida. >>

Studying And Stationery

  • August 23, 2016

Does anyone else like studying, or is it just me?! I’m not talking about studying for a PHD or anything, I definitely don’t have the brains for that, but shorter courses and qualifications. I went to Uni and graduated (14 years ago as I scarily realised the other day!) with a degree in Graphic Design. I’d love to have the time and money to do another degree in something IT/Digital related but that’s >>

Our June Round-Up

  • July 11, 2016

I should really have done this last week, but better late than never and all that. I’ve been advised to write more blog posts about our life. I’ve purposely avoided too many of these as I don’t think many people will be interested in our day to day life, it’s really not that exciting! But I try to take all advice on board so will make an effort to share >>
