Furnishing the box room to create a fun kids bedroom

Like many people across the UK our family of four live in a three bedroom mid terrace 1930’s build. And, like many other families this means that one of the family is lumbered with the box room. This honour usually goes to the last born, the smallest and the youngest. But they don’t stay little forever. more “Furnishing the box room to create a fun kids bedroom”

#coolmumclub Linky week 70

Well hasn’t this week been a total melt-fest. (Yes, I’m watching Love Island and I’m rapidly backtracking on my inability to get used to the ‘new lot’ this series. #obsessed). It’s also been el scorchio here in the South East and as the temperatures have soared, so has the crazy ratings in the household with one self declared potty training tot and another going down with a bug (again).

Without a doubt, our eldest daughter has an absolute affinity for all things nature and she is such a creative little soul.

30 hours of free childcare – can it work for you?

It seems like the parents of the UK have been screaming for more support in helping Mums (and Dads) get back to work and lessen the crippling costs of childcare for a long time; something I felt had a huge impact in my decision to not return to work after being made redundant. more “30 hours of free childcare – can it work for you?”

A five year old vegetarian?

Our eldest daughter has always had an unbelievable appetite. Thankfully, for all sorts of foods – she’s just as happy munching on a raw carrot as a bar of chocolate, and from a really young age we had to hide the fruit bowl as she devoured it like a fruit bat. more “A five year old vegetarian?”

Earning money as a busy Mum can be incredibly hard. There are not many jobs out there that you can juggle with school hours, and it doesn’t matter if you are a one or two parent family, it can still be a struggle getting it all in. more “Earning money as a Mum in 2017”

Good Bubble childrens bath range review

Bath time…possibly one of the best parts of the day right? Especially in the summer, when the days suncream, ground in dirt and mud fades away to reveal the clean and sweet smelling babies again; all wrapped up in a snuggly towel, is there anything more lovely? more “Good Bubble childrens bath range review”
