As a ‘phase 2’ project to last years ‘Big Build‘, this spring we have focussed on getting the garden Summer ready. That meant decommissioning an unused garage, ripping up some awful patio, and creating a new area to play, and enjoy some outdoor living. Being on a budget, using a ‘find the bargain’ site like BargainBuysForBusyMums was a massive help to avoid paying full price on some outdoor toys for the kids. more “#HideTheBags: Garden toys for the kids”
The years of my children’s lives are flying by, as everyone said they would. None more so than my third baby, www.mummuddlingthrough.com. So, from one cliche to the next, this post is to wish my blog a happy first birthday. more “My blog birthday: What I did (and didn’t) achieve in a year of blogging….”
It’s been three weeks since the last #coolmumclub meet the members and I’m thrilled to introduce Kirsty aka Something Crunchy Mummy. Host of one of my favourite linkies, Just another linky.
Kirsty’s life parallels mine in lots of ways…stay at home mum, eldest about to start school, thinking about the big return to work later this year. Will we, won’t we? It’s definitely all about to change for us one way or another!
Thank you Kirsty for sharing a little about yourself for the series – looking forward to meeting you at BML!
I’m BAAAAACCCKKK! How the heck are you all? It’s been an amazing three weeks here at HQ – half term followed by a blissful family holiday (with actual sunshine and everything). A little bit of a breather from the blog has left me buzzing to get back into it and I’ve come home to some exciting opportunities in my inbox. With #BML just hours away I can’t wait to meet some of you, and maybe get some answers to some of my dumb-blogger questions!
June is men’s health month. If you, like me, are always diverting the kids away from the treats and trying to encourage more healthy snacking, there is no better place to start than on influencing a role model like Dad. more “One for the Dads: Healthy snacking for fellas”
I can remember vividly the first time my daughter sat through a Disney movie, and absorbed every moment. It was The Jungle book when she was just younger than two. I’m not sure who loved that landmark moment more, her or me. more “Disney Interactive Games review & competition #WIN a Disney Infinity starter pack”
The Linky is ON like DONKEY KONG…over at Talyas place, while I am returning from my holiday.
Click www.motherhoodtherealdeal.com to find this week’s #coolmumclub linky – I’ll be back with you all next week…and no doubt I’ll dip in and do some reading when I emerge from a mountain of washing. Maybe 😉
#coolmumclub HQ are taking an extended half term break!
You can come back next week to get your #coolmumclub hit! Absence makes the heart grow fonder…
I’m taking some time out to be with the family, go on holiday, maybe do some writing, and maybe not touch the laptop at all?…
