My Rescue

Over the last couple of months I’ve been talking about the Rescue products and how I use them for travelling. How useful I find the products for dealing with the stresses of travelling with a toddler. Also how it has allowed me to travel and see things I never thought I would. Today though, I thought I would share with you my Rescue story.

Feeling Calm #74

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. 

This week has been nice and quiet, well as quiet as things get for us! Just blogging, working, playing with the boy. The flip side to not being that busy on the plans front, means I’ve thrown myself into the work side of things. So I’m just as exhausted as ever.

So here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

This Plus That Equals…. Why Quick Parenting Isn’t Lazy Parenting

This plus that equals…. why quick parenting isn’t lazy parenting

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is a little rant from me. A rant about why taking parenting shortcuts is not lazy parenting.

Now there are several press outlets who would have us believe feeding our kids fish fingers for tea is a sign of our sheer and utter laziness of parents and we must all be ashamed of ourselves. Pah. Here’s why they are wrong.

Feeling Calm #73

I have flown an owl. If anyone who knows me is reading this they will realise just how exciting that is for me. If you don’t know me I love my family, reading, owls, gin, cheese and chocolate. In that order. Yes I love owls more than gin.

There has been more than just meeting owls though so here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

This plus that equals…. getting ready for school

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 getting ready for L starting school.

Now he is only three, I don’t even have to apply for his place until September and he won’t start until the following year. I’m already thinking about it though.

This Plus That Equals…. Cheering Myself Up

This plus that equals…. cheering myself up

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 little things I do to cheer myself up.

I’ve been a little overwhelmed of late, spreading myself too thinly, taking on too much. The cat is ill, L hasn’t been sleeping well, I am stressed, husb is stressed and it’s taken its toll. So I thought I’d share the little everyday things that have been cheering me up.
