The Hen Party

How time flies. This time two weeks ago I was getting ready for my sisters hen party and in another two weeks she will be getting married. It has come round in the blink of an eye.

Thanks to the hard work of a lot of people the hen party was brilliant and as I never do this kind of thing I thought I would tell you all about it.

Basic Car Care with a Little Toddler Help

Not one of my favourite jobs, not at all, but especially this time of year it is essential. Making sure my car is clean and safe. Living in a rural area like I do my car gets muddy quickly, and if you can’t see your number plate you could be getting a ticket. Not great. Simple car care really is essential.

Reading with JCB Kids

A couple of weeks ago we had another fun delivery from JCB Kids. As always L was very excited and absolutely delighted with his new goodies.

He got some fabulous pajamas from the range available at George, great digger printed bottoms with a fun Joey top which quite frankly he could wear as a T-Shirt, there is a chance that he maybe has! At only £9.00 for the set I think this is really good value, everything washes up well and has been tumble dried several times.  Continue reading Reading with JCB Kids

Feeling Calm #52

For my birthday last year I was given a great 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 since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

Wow, we are all tired in this house at the moment. Husb’s new job is really taking it out of him. L has had a few unsettled nights, early starts and a complete refusal to nap, so he’s a delight. I simply don’t know what’s wrong with me, I feel drained and have literally been falling asleep on the sofa during the day.

There has been a lot going on recently, but honestly I shouldn’t be this tired!

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

This Plus That Equals…. Time

This plus that equals…. time

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 time, or lack thereof. As husb has started a new job we’ve gone through another round of changes in the house and once again it is our time that has been most affected.

Feeling Calm #51

For my birthday last year I was given a great 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 since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

After a long weekend hen party-ing I am knackered but a bit of a break has been helpful and whilst I may be very busy now I do at least feel a bit more motivated.

I’m hoping that things will calm down a bit and I can centre myself once again and fall back into a good routine.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

This Plus That Equals…. My Top Tired Games

This plus that equals…. my top tired games

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 the ways I keep L entertained when I am beyond tired and don’t really have the energy to parent. These are also good when you’re ill.

Having spent all weekend at my sister’s hen party I needed all of these today as at points I literally couldn’t keep my eyes open.
