book
Jan 03

2015 was the year that I, along with a few good friends, decided to set up a book group. We all have busy lives, but we thought a book group would be a great way of making reading a top priority, while also expanding our literary tastes. For me, it has certainly achieved both of […]

Toby Carvery meal
Dec 20

A couple weeks ago, Toby Carvery got in touch and kindly invited me to take part in its Manic Mumday campaign, which challenged mums to take some time out of their hectic schedule and enjoy a family meal, on the house! It would have been rude to say ‘no’. The timing was perfect actually, as […]

eating out holes bay
Nov 29

I used to love cooking, but recently it’s become a bit of a chore, mainly because I’m finding it increasingly hard to cater to everyone’s tastes. Little I used to be a brilliant eater but recently she’s become a bit fussy, and two-year old Wolfy has a very limited repertoire of what he is prepared […]

I’ve heard many of my parent friends say that the summer holidays are when they “get their children back”. The final few weeks of the summer term are so busy with sports day, summer fêtes, music showcases, prize-giving, school reports and school trips, that it’s an achievement (and relief), to make it through to the […]

When it comes to putting little ones to bed, breastfeeding is the most wonderful thing mother nature ever invented (at least that’s been my experience). I know the ‘experts’ say you should never feed a baby to sleep, but I did, with both of my children. It always seemed the easiest and most natural way to […]

Today is National Tell a Story Day. To mark the occasion, Room to Grow asked several bloggers to take part in their Storytelling Challenge. Each of us were asked to come up with a story theme, including a character, setting and object, which would be passed to the blogger we had been paired with. Likewise, we would receive from them […]

I’m a bit of a novice when it comes to skincare and makeup. They’re not something that I’ve ever been that interested in spending my money on, and I’ve been lucky in always having fairly clear skin, so have been able to get away with it! Well…that was until Wolfy entered my life, who decided […]

When it comes to weaning your baby onto solid food, there is a lot of conflicting advice out there, and particularly if you are breastfeeding. While there’s general consensus that ‘breast is best’, I’ve also been told on countless occasions that from six months and beyond (and some say earlier), breast milk doesn’t contain the […]

The Works
Feb 15

Our family is a big fan of The Works. It’s brimming with goodies for everyone, from Frozen merchandise through to gorgeous stationery, arts and craft materials, and of course lots of books. Just as my favourite shop as a child was Woolworths (sadly now extinct on the high street), I am pretty sure The Works […]

dolls house
Dec 19

My Sindy dolls house is my best remembered toy from childhood. It was handmade by my Dad, and I have very fond memories of the hours I used to spend playing with it. I adored my Sindy dolls (so much better than Barbie!), and I used to get very wrapped up in my make-believe storylines, […]
