Big News For The Digital Motherhood Family

  • May 7, 2019

As you may or may not have noticed I haven’t written a blog post in a while – it’s actually the first time in a few years that I haven’t published at least one post a week!

5 Ways To Exercise As A Family

  • May 24, 2018

Let’s face it – many of us put off exercise because it requires setting aside blocks of time that we simply don’t have as parents.

Healthy habits are passed along from parent-to-child, so it’s the responsibility of the adult to initiate an active lifestyle to make exercise fun; children will naturally >>

Bournemouth Pier

We count ourselves very lucky to live in Poole in Dorset – I definitely wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in the UK. We have beautiful beaches as well as countryside to explore, and there are tons of things to do in Poole and Bournemouth with kids. Bournemouth was once laughed at for being a retirement town – though recently is more famous for stag & hen parties – and Poole >>

  • March 1, 2018

There’s no arguing that life as a mum is hard and I’m a big believer that there’s tons more pressure on mums than there was in previous generations.

Here’s a list I’ve put together of amazing things that make mums’ lives >>

Family days out to get you in the Christmas spirit

When you’re working in the run-up to Christmas and don’t finish work until a couple of days before it can be hard to feel Christmassy before the big day arrives. You’re so busy with work and are rushed off your feet spending your free time shopping for gifts and planning childcare for the holidays that you don’t give much thought to feeling festive.  I never really feel the Christmas spirit until >>

How To Keep Kids Happy When Travelling + Win A Trunki Travel Pillow

  • September 11, 2017

Travelling is one of my favourite things to do. We were lucky enough to visit a few far flung places before having Little H which we’re very grateful for because travelling with kids is an entirely different experience! Just going on just a short car journey can test your patience to the limit if the kids are grumpy/tired/bored, so going on a plane definitely needs some preparation. All parents know >>

10 Reasons Having A Kitten Is Just Like Having A Baby

  • September 8, 2017

We’ve been umming and aaahing about getting a pet for a while and a couple of weeks ago we finally gave in to Little H’s begging and we got a kitten.
