Getting on the ‘On the wagon’ bandwagon #DryJanuary #Dryathlon

On New Years Eve Eve, a text from the mother in law inviting us to join her in dry January again seemed such a great idea. December had been a month of boozing – with the early onslaught of Christmas do’s, get togethers, balls and lunches followed by a more civilised drinking all day but never quite getting drunk affair around the main event.  more “Getting on the ‘On the wagon’ bandwagon #DryJanuary #Dryathlon”

The Supermum Myth Book review & #Giveaway

Super Mum. Do you know her? Perhaps you’ve crossed paths with her once or twice, probably at a PTA meeting or whizzing past you on the school run in designer gym gear.

Or conversely, blissfully a stay at home Mum, never missing a school performance or trip, always there at the classroom door and knowing everyone in the line, every school calendar date and all over each school notice. more “The Supermum Myth Book review & #Giveaway”

Mums have a magical solution to fix any type of issues, right? Well, if your kids think so, then you’re obviously doing a good job. But ‘perfection’ requires quite a huge amount of dedication, which can get immensely tiresome at the end of the day. What being a mother also requires is a lot of time, which, among many other things, usually leaves you with few hours of sleep. more “The benefits of sleep – Mums need sleep too”

Guest Post: Health tips for busy Mums

My Babywearing experience : International Babywearing week

I think some folk tend to think of ‘babywearing‘ as being associated with a stereotype – perhaps an earth mother, co-sleeper, long term breast feeder, wearer of floaty clothes and tye dye.
