Summer Fun from The Natural History Museum Shop

However much I’d like to be able to take L to The Natural History Museum all the time, it’s just not practical. Thankfully the Natural History Museum Shop has some great options so that we can enjoy the fun at home.

Project Bridesmaid #13

So in under a year I am going to be a bridesmaid for my little sister. This is just the kind of goal I need to diet, focus on my weight loss and getting healthier, which all ties in nicely with my quest to be a calmer, happier and healthier person.

I have decided to vlog about my journey as that will give me a visual reminder of where I’ve been and where I am and as it’s something that makes me rather uncomfortable it will also help to keep me in check. Plus it’s always good to push yourself.

During my journey I will be getting to try all kinds of new products and sharing my experiences of them with you. Continue reading Project Bridesmaid #13

Feeling Calm #31

For my birthday I was given a great new book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

You may have guessed from my posts this week I have really started to feel the strain of being self employed with no clients. That’s not to say we haven’t had fun though. I just reminding of it a bit more than usual, so I can’t tell you how much I’ve been looking forward to writing this.

So here are my top 10 moments from the past 7 days; Continue reading Feeling Calm #31

This Plus That Equals…. Feeling Like a Failure

This plus that equals…. Feeling Like a Failure

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about me and how I’m feeling. Fairly rubbish as you may have guessed from the title. Now I’m not after a load of sympathy, I just need to write about why I feel like a failure, get it off my chest and then hopefully start to feel a bit better.

As you all know I’m a big fan of home learning and have taken several courses. But what do businesses really think? This survey from NCC Home Learning aims to find out.

Refreshing the Toddler – Nurture Fruity Water+


With all this hot weather we haven’t been able to pack enough drinks for L, so when we were sent some samples of Nurture Fruity Water+ the timing couldn’t have been better.

They come in non spill pouches that can just be chucked in the bottom of our day bag. Now L hated the pouches and found them really difficult to drink from but I loved them as it meant he could have them in the back of the car and I didn’t have to worry. What we ended up doing though was taking a bottle of drink and then when he had finished it, transferring a pouch of the Nurture Fruity Water+ into his empty bottle.
