Cruises were once associated with the older crowd, but they are becoming increasingly popular with all ages; more and more families are starting to discover the benefits of taking a cruise over a standard beach holiday. So, why are cruises more popular now than ever before and what kind of entertainment can you expect to enjoy on board? more “Going on a Cruise with the family”
With each day that passes in our hectic lives it’s all too easy to overlook how things are changing at a rate of knots. Days turn to weeks, weeks to months and months to years, with a seamless transition through the phases of having a young family. And then, every now and again something stops you in your tracks and makes you look back at how far you’ve come. more “Sideliner Siblings”
As I write this I can feel the aches in my calves and thighs, the tell tale signs that I’ve pushed myself in the name of exercise, which for me, since becoming a Mum, has been running. more “@ParkRunUK – Making running a team sport #MumsThatRun”
Children are curious and inquisitive; they can’t simply wait to learn about everything in this world around them. If you have kids, you’ll have noticed their ability to start shooting questions at you about anything that slightly catches their attention. The best way to satisfy their curiosity is to let them play with educational toys from a young age, to allow their mental agility grow with them as they develop into budding little learners. more “Why should parents buy sustainable toys?

And just like that, it was October. The perfect reason to snuggle up and settle down with a glass of whatever you fancy and indulge in a little #CoolMumClub with Talya and I. Don’t forget throughout the week we are all active on instagram using the hashtag #CoolMumClub; you can see both of mine and Talyas highlights up this week on the grid. more “#CoolMumClub Linky week 114”
Yesterday, whilst stood in the nursery line, I overheard two Mums just ahead of me discussing this seasons latest trend. Not colour blocking, nor powerwave, or even coconut lattes…Zoflora.
I smiled quietly to myself because just that morning I had fired over a friend of mine a whatsapp image of a tub of cleaning product that had arrived courtesy of Amazon prime; one that just weeks ago neither of us would have ever heard of. But today, “we know”. more “Clean is the new Black”
I’ve held out for a couple of years on new Autumn boots (damn shoes that last ages), but this year I promised myself a pair of new kicks to see me through a winter of school run madness. After all, it’s without hesitation that the kids get bought a pair of (overpriced) well fitting school shoes, so why should Mum be left out?! more “#HideTheBags Autumn Loading”
Hello October! One of my favourite months not least because after the hard hitting return to school, clubs and a crazy midweek schedule, we get a two week half term! Whoop whoop! Also seeing all the pumpkins, jumpers and mood lighting makes it a pretty huggable time of year right? more “#CoolMumClub Insta round up September 2018”
I don’t need to remind you of the constant battle us mums have in trying to get their kids to put down their games consoles and head outdoors.
It’s hard work.
However, that doesn’t make me any less aware of the importance of trying to get the kids to embrace outdoor living in one form or another. more “The Benefits of Encouraging Your Child to Play Outdoors by Buying Them a Scooter”
Like any set of tired parents, Dad Muddling Through and I relish the occasional grown up night out, free from the wants and needs of our gorgeous, but somewhat demanding daughters. One of our favourite occasional nights out these days is a curry and escape room – a fun night out which is less about getting mortal and hitting the clubs, but brings a giggle and a bit of action (pardon the pun) around our evening. I guess nights out look a little different these days, and it’s more about enjoying a change of scene, something different, and sharing different experiences together (which don’t always revolve around being Mum and Dad). more “WHODUNNIT?
