Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. The time has finally come in our house for potty training and we are in full flow. It ain’t easy, that’s for sure. There are a surprising amount of potty training dilemmas we have come across, so I thought I’d share them and be of absolutely no help to any parent anywhere.
If you’ve been reading my blog over the last month or so you’ll have sensed a change in me. Less upbeat. More worried. Definitely more stressed. You’ll also know this is because I felt like I was losing my dream.
So now I think it’s time for a catch up. A proper one. Honest, warts and all catch up on what has been going on in my life this month. As it is real life, my real life. The reason I think most of you read this, although I’m never sure I’ll know why. But thank you so much, as the kind comments I’ve had these last few weeks have truly meant the world to me and kept me going. Continue reading Taking Risks and Making Decisions→

This plus that equals…. Ways My Toddler Has Injured Me
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 many ways in which my toddler has injured me. It’s a lot. Toddlers may be cute, but with all that bouncy energy and the coordination of a drunk hippo on ice they can be lethal.
SQUEEZING OUT JUICE FROM KIDS’ DIETS MAY DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD
Research shows 100% fruit juice drinkers are 42% more likely to meet their 5 A Day and it could help 4.7 million in UK towards achieving the target.
With 91% of children currently failing to meet the 5 A Day target, new analysis of data from the National Diet and Nutrition Survey (NDNS) presented this week at the Nutrition Society Conference in Dublin indicates that 100% fruit juice drinkers are more likely to meet the 5 A Day recommendation.
You may have noticed over the last few days things have been very quiet on my blog. I’m sorry. I have been ridiculously busy. So I would like to share my shining light, Red Kooga, with you. It’s how I’ve gotten through.
It’s that time of year when we get to spoil all the great dad’s out there.

Last week we were on holiday in Devon and we were lucky enough to have some amazing days out, but sometimes planning things to do with a toddler can be difficult, there’s a lot to think about, cost, activities, changing facilities, food, the list goes on. So here’s a run down of where we went and why we think they are awesome places to bring a toddler for some days out in Devon. Continue reading Top Toddler Days Out in Devon→
So in about a year I am going to be a bridesmaid for my little sister. This is just the kind of goal I need to start losing some weight 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.
When I started blogging two years ago the aim was to help me find a way, any way, to stay at home. I tried a few different things, took a few courses and found myself working as a Social Media Manager. I was able to leave my admin job and am now officially self employed. I thought I would start sharing some of the things I have learnt along the way.
Being self employed can often mean a lot of work pitching for little reward, even worse are the times when you are offered a job that never actually materialises.
