A ‘Mum Muddling Through’ Christmas Carol

Marley was dead, to begin with.

Perhaps this wasn’t the film to choose on Christmas eve, as the girls zone out to the demise of that labrador whilst Jennifer Aniston and family mourn their beloved puppy. Still, at least it gave me a bonus ninety minutes to blitz the house. Prep the veg, whizz the hoover round, shove any last bits of laundry behind closed doors and make everything look perfect. more “A ‘Mum Muddling Through’ Christmas Carol”

Blogging; When opportunity knocks (but you aren’t coming out to play)

When I started blogging almost three years ago, I had a clear and concise idea of how it would pan out. Kids sleeping / at nursery + laptop out = blog. Wearing slippers, TV on in the background and a brew on the side. more “Blogging; When opportunity knocks (but you aren’t coming out to play)”

Learning the things that all Mums need to know

Becoming a new Mum is a magical time in our lives. Feeling a living being, which you created, growing inside you fills you with so many emotions it is hard to keep a handle on them. One of those feelings is most certainly worry. If you are an expecting mother who isn’t worrying over every little detail, you should truly be in the running for Mum of the year. more “Learning the things that all Mums need to know”

How to teach kids about recycling

We create a lot of waste, that much is obvious. What many people don’t know is that the majority of that waste is being improperly stored away. In fact, the waste problem is so big, that the landfills seem to be no longer sustainable. more “How to teach kids about recycling”

#GIVEAWAY Disney on Ice presents Passport to Adventure this Christmas

Given that we have just returned from four days in Disneyland Paris, you’d think we’d be a bit Disneyed out. But, the fact is, when you have two young girls (and never actually grew up yourself), I’m not sure there is such a thing as too much Disneymore “#GIVEAWAY Disney on Ice presents Passport to Adventure this Christmas”

Mum On Time, naturally – with Jord Wood Watches + BlackFriday Discount Giveaway

As a Mum who is never, and I mean NEVER, late, a watch has become something I feel lost without; an essential piece of my Mum kit. Two christmases ago I was gifted the ultimate in cool watches – an iWatch, but although it has it’s perks, a watch that buzzes, rings and runs out of battery every 12 hours has not always been practical. I’ve had my eye out for something a little more classic in a wrist watch for a while now, and something that speaks to my individual personality and taste. more “Mum On Time, naturally – with Jord Wood Watches + BlackFriday Discount Giveaway”

Let it go – Living with childhood constipation

I’ve really debated in my mind whether to write this post about children and constipation – as, shock horror, it’s about poo. You know, that thing we all do, and no-one likes to talk about, hear about or think about. But, over the last few days I’ve realised that perhaps that’s part of the problem. more “Let it go – Living with childhood constipation”

Step by step guide on how to be a cool grandparent

Have you ever caught yourself wondering what kind of grandparent perhaps you’ll be one day? I have always had this vision of being a bit of a crazy Nan. The one who wears bright loud clothes and makes her grandkids cringe by her raucous behaviour – refusing to grow old gracefully. A proper cool Nan, who keeps their secrets and and always has their back. more “Step by step guide on how to be a cool grandparent”

Girls bedroom 60 minute makeover with Pixers

We have been contemplating a bedroom refresh for our eldest daughter for a while now. It’s not that the tree wall stickers we popped on the feature wall a few years ago have anything wrong as such, it’s just that they seem a little tired and perhaps babyish for our daughter who turns six in the Spring.  more “Girls bedroom 60 minute makeover with Pixers”

Disneyland Paris – A parents survival guide

I should probably start by saying I am not a guru on all things Disney (well, not unless you can count knowing all the lyrics to the back catalogue of Disney Princess Classics). But I am a Mum of two girls, who has now been to Disneyland Paris twice. Having returned from our latest trip just last night, I’m just brimming with the hints and tips that every parent needs to know before heading to Disneyland Paris. I should know, I was googling them myself last week. more “Disneyland Paris – A parents survival guide”
