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! I’ve had something big on my mind and that’s been keeping us occupied but I haven’t been able to write about it, so it was easier to not just write anything at all >>

  • January 5, 2018

Who else is trying hard to get their life together and be a more organised mum this year?! I struggle to remember where we need to be after school on what days and what Little H has to take to school with her when. I also want to move my blog forward so am trying to put a plan together for that around work and general family life. I’m exhausted >>

Ridiculous Things Mums Feel Guilty For

  • October 30, 2017

One of the things that I think all mums can relate to is suffering from regular bouts of “Mum Guilt”. I’ve noticed this is a recurring theme amongst my guest bloggers for my Interview With A Working Mum series when I ask what they find hardest about being a working mum. I’ve no idea are we all feeling so guilty for going to work and putting our kids in childcare? >>

July’s Round-Up

  • August 8, 2017

I’m a bit late with my round-up for last month as we’ve just got back from holiday. I couldn’t really remember what we did before we jetted off, so it’s nice to have a little reminder. July’s Round-Up July started off by us getting our first National Trust passes – how grown up are we?! Our first visit was to Mottisfont Abbey in Romsey, a place we’d never heard of >>

Another June Round-Up

  • July 1, 2017

Not only is it now July (how did that happen?!), it’s also a year since I did our first monthly round-up. I probably need to think of something else to do for the next 12 months, but haven’t decided what yet so I’ll stick with this for now! Another June Round-Up June was a mixed month weather-wise. We had some amazingly hot weather and some really crappy weather, so our >>

What Do You Do When You Have A Blogging Brain Freeze?

  • June 12, 2017

I’ve been slacking at blogging lately. I’d set myself a goal this year of posting 3 times a week and I was doing really well, I’d even scheduled quite a few in advance. Then something happened, I’m not quite sure what but suddenly I had nothing scheduled or planned and no ideas! I’ve still posted, but only because I had a couple of reviews to write. Other than that I’m >>

Our May Round-Up

  • June 2, 2017

Seriously, how is it June already?! Next month is the summer holidays! Madness. This year is flying by so quickly, probably because we’re so busy all the time. May is always a busy month as it’s Little H’s birthday. This kid has managed to get her 6th birthday to stretch over 2 full weeks! I like her style. Here’s a round-up of what we got up to in May… Our May >>

Things To Do Before You’re 6 – recap

  • May 22, 2017

Last year Little H wrote a list of things she wanted to do before she turned 6. It was her 6th birthday last week, so did she manage to do it all? Ride a bike without stabilisers Erm…no. This has not gone well! We bought Little H a new bike for Christmas which she loved – until we took the stabilisers off. We’ve tried a few times and it’s ended >>

  • May 18, 2017

Today my daughter turns 6. Six!! How on earth did that happen? It only feels like yesterday that I was stomping around, fat, grumpy and 2 weeks overdue. Yet here I am with 6 years of parenting under my belt. You go through a hell of a lot as a parent. A lot of stresses, worries, tears and quite a few grey hairs. But I’ve survived so far!
