#MUMATHON DONE

Way back at the end of January I committed to using my last month as a stay at home Mum for good. In a stroke of luck and timing, I was asked by Child.org to champion their #TeamMum campaign and try and raise some moolah for Mums in Africa who frankly put my Mum muddles to shame.

Keeping young kids comfy in hot weather

*contributed collaborative post

Warmer weather is, fingers crossed, on its way. It’s unlikely to be a scorching April, but it’s hopefully safe to say that we’ve left the frosts and storms behind and we are moving into brighter times. It’s certainly starting to look and feel a lot like spring.

Freeing up more money for the things that matter most

*contributed collaborative post

As many people have observed throughout history, it’s really difficult to imagine ever having “too much money.”

No matter what your particular situation is in life, whether you’re single, or have a family who depends on you, it’s inevitable that you will find yourself feeling – at least sometimes – that it would really be great if you’d have a bit more income, and a few less expenses.

5 things I never thought I’d hear myself say #SoberLiving

When I made a passing comment last week about considering going vegetarian, the look on Dad Muddling Through’s face said it all. I get it though, I do, because over the last half a year, he must wonder who this person stood before him is, and what the hell happened to his wife.

Six months alcohol free. Spot the difference…

While we’re all grumbling about how long this winter has dragged on, and how the summer feels FOREVER ago, I’m quietly celebrating just how long ago August was, because it’s been an extraordinary six months since I decided to embark on a personal experiment of a life alcohol free.

Slinging my wrap for #SellOneThing #TeamMum @childdotorg

I’ve written previously about my short but sweet experience of babywearing; how I was determined to nail the whole wrapped up baby on your chest thing that I’d watched from afar in wonder with my first child.

#SellOneThing – My fundraising campaign for #TeamMum @Childdotorg

Motherhood. Here in the U.K. it’s finally become okay to open up and talk about how tough it can be. The sleepless nights, the never ending nappies, the loss of identity. Let alone the unexpected health issues which can crop up along the way – breastfeeding troubles, tongue tie, post natal depression, constipation, lactose intolerance…I could go on but let’s face it, we all know the score.

Three steps towards better health

*contributed collaborative post

Health treatments are a continuously evolving machine. What we don’t see as patients, is the work that is going on behind the scenes to make products that are designed to help us; ranging from creams treating excessive facial hair in women to new immune system supplements.
