As much as Chicken Pox spreads like wildfire through schools, nurseries, families and playgroups, it sometimes seems like it’s spread through social media too – I’ve seen so many posts and pictures about kids going down with it lately. It’s dragged up some pretty vivid memories with our girls, of when we had our episode in the spring of 2015; a milestone moment for any Mum and one that thankfully (hopefully) rules us out as ‘done’ with the pox.
Fathers Day this year falls on Sunday 17th June, just three (ish) weeks away. These things always have a habit of creeping up on me, and with four Dads to think about (Dad Muddling Through, My Dad, Step-Dad and Father in Law), last minute panic buys often end up in a bottle of booze and a plant. It’d be nice to think that I might actually manage to pull something out of the bag a little more pre-empted one of these Father’s Days. more “Fathers Day with Frederick Thomas A £100 #giveaway plus £10 voucher code @FredThomasTies”
As the dust settles over this weekends incredible Royal Wedding, it’s hard not to reflect back on your own wedding memories. A lesser known fact which probably should be included in the ‘interesting facts about me’ type ice breakers which kick around, is that over my 36 years, I’ve been a bridesmaid eight times. more “Ten times a bridesmaid”
You may recall a month or so ago, PetPlan made one little girls dreams come true when they created Tig’s dream pet; Nina the Snow Eagle.
Like any strong sibling rivalry, her little sister wanted in on the action. And, sure that she too could create her dream animal, she set to work on her dream pony, courtesy of Petplan Equine.
It’s crazy to think we are already in the run up to the final term before the end of the current school year, and with school places announced last month for many parents, now is the time to start

Hear Ye Hear Ye, there may be a Royal Wedding craze hitting the nation, but let’s squeeze in a spot of #CoolMumClub first! It’s Week 102 and we are ready to get our tiaras on for a royal edition of the link up. Please forgive me, I’m feeling the burn of the last two weeks of term, seriously, is it time for a week off yet? more “#CoolMumClub Linky week 102”
Since our six year old daughter was tiny, visiting Peppa Pig World has been up there on the list of things we wanted to do. Despite cursing the hours we dozed in bed or on the sofa whilst our early riser would happily watch episode after episode on those bleak pre-6am mornings, there is no denying Peppa Pig has been a big part of our parenting lives. more “A family day out to @PaultonsPark #PeppaPigWorld”
So yesterday, after months of clearing out the excessive amounts of ‘stored stuff’ in the loft, the builders have moved in. There’s no going back now, and after months of taking a vague interest in plans on pieces of paper and conversations about structure and permissions, I can finally get a bit excited about the parts of a big building project that I love. more “The fun bits of renovating: Choosing flooring for our loft conversion”
I’ve always considered myself to be a pretty decisive person; headstrong, a ‘do-er’, not one to mess around. But when it comes to my kids and making decisions about them, it seems I’ve become a bit of a wet lettuce. more “Can I Phone A Friend? The agony of making parenting decisions”
