Don’t be driven to distraction by your mobile phone

  • November 4, 2019

This post is in collaboration with Kwik Fit. Since moving to Spain I’ve kind of had to learn to drive again, and it’s not something I’m enjoying! I hated driving lessons, though after passing my test 19 years ago I’ve obviously driven a fair bit since then. Not only have I got to get used to a new car which is always difficult, but I now also have to get >>

No more boring socks with Sockshop!

  • October 30, 2019

Just as the mornings started to turn a bit chilly here in Spain, a lovely parcel from SockShop arrived in the post! You might think that we wouldn’t need socks in Spain, and for the summer months you’d be right, but the temperature has dropped to around 12 degrees of a morning all of a sudden. This might not sound very cold to those of you in the UK, but >>

Brilliant Brainz Magazines

  • April 1, 2019

Do you know what one of my pet hates is? All those magazines they put by the entrance of shops so there’s no way you can sneak past with a child without being begged for a magazine full of adverts and plastic tat. I wouldn’t mind if Little H actually looked through them when we got home, but once the plastic toys have been ripped from the cover, the magazine >>

The Great Minds Go Far Planner

  • September 3, 2018
Great Minds Go Far Planner

I’ve always got a plan (or several) up my sleeve, and usually about a million different things on the go at once – I have couple of blogs, some social media freelance work, a 30+ hour a week day job and the biggest job of all, being a mum. With so much going on I love my lists and planners, I’d just forget everything otherwise. So when Great Minds asked >>

How To Teach Kids Spanish With One Third Stories

  • April 5, 2018

Being able to speak another language is an amazing skill to have, and the younger the child the easier it is to pick up a new language. I’m not at all fluent in Spanish but did well in my GCSE and know enough to get by. We’ve visited Spain a fair bit and I’ve taught Little H the basics like numbers, colours and animals. If you want to teach kids >>

Photowall Canvas Review

  • January 12, 2018

I have a bit of a thing about taking photos of beach huts, which is easy to do when you live on the coast! I’ve wanted to turn one of my photos into a canvas for a while but just haven’t got around to it. So when Photowall invited me to review a canvas I thought this would be the perfect opportunity. Photowall have a wide range of wall murals >>

  • January 7, 2018

I didn’t do a book recommendation in November or December as we were just so busy with other things, but I will try to get back on it this year. January’s book recommendation is a lovely personalised book from Family Stories that we received just before Christmas, I’ve lost count of times it’s already been read! There’s a lot of personalised books for children out there but I especially liked the look >>
