#CoolMumClub Linky week 110

Aaaarghh it’s a bitter sweet Thursday for #CoolMumClub! It’s our last link up until after the summer holidays, as usual Talya and I are going to be popping our host duties on hold as we straddle summer with the kids and have to minimise blogging commitments. Of course who doesn’t love a bit of a rest from usual duties, so whilst we’ll miss you all, we’ll also be living our best summer lives and will be right back before you know it, refreshed and raring to go. more “#CoolMumClub Linky week 110”

Rules of Summer

Friday is the official last day of term for my eldest daughter, who will be joining her sister who left her pre school on Monday. This means, by the time you read this I’ll have already been doing the juggle for days and after a week of limping along it’ll be time to set the schedule onto summer mode.  more “Rules of Summer”

#HaveKidsWillTravel Our big fat Greek Holiday 2018

I guess the title of this post is a little misleading. In all honesty, since having kids, foreign travel has become a bit scary and we have been reluctant to throw ourselves into a ‘the world is our oyster’ type approach, opting for more of a caravan holiday / British coastline travel style during the summer months. more “#HaveKidsWillTravel Our big fat Greek Holiday 2018”

RENT – What to look for in a rental property #MyFirstRentalHome

*collaborative post

I left home when I was around nineteen, and into my first rented property with my then boyfriend. In the years that followed I hopped to and from other rented properties with him, then with a housemate, and later on my own, before finally stepping onto the property ladder with my to-be-husband in my mid twenties. more “RENT – What to look for in a rental property #MyFirstRentalHome”

#ColourYourPersonality What do the shades in your home say about you?

If you look around your home, do you see a trend? Colours which repeat again and again or seem to find their way into every room? I was asked by Julian Charles to take on the #ColourYourPersonality campaign to see if the shades in my life are telling more about me than I ever realised… more “#ColourYourPersonality What do the shades in your home say about you?”

In the six years since becoming a parent, I’ve been through a fair few different phases and social circles. more “Where did everybody go? The changing landscape of life as a SAHM”

Guest post: The Most Popular Designer Dog Breed in 2018

*collaborative post

It’s no secret that lately I’ve been obsessing over the idea of a puppy to make our family complete. Of course, as so many people have told me, it’s a huge responsibility; a notion I have taken on board as our doggie dreams have resided firmly in my dreams, as opposed to reality. That said though, I have loads of fun imagining what we would have, what we’d call it, and gushing over every dog I see like some kind of broody for a fur baby maniac. more “Guest post: The Most Popular Designer Dog Breed in 2018”

A pet tortoise; The hard facts

As members of the Muddling Through household go, there’s one little dude who has distinctly lacked any airtime on the blog, despite his extra personality and charm. more “A pet tortoise; The hard facts”
