New Furry Friends with Sinco Toys Zookiez & Wobbleez

L has been lucky enough to be sent his very own puppy and, as if that wasn’t good enough, he has got a Panda to call his own too. This is all thanks to Sinco Toys and their fabulous Zookiez and Wobbleez ranges.

Feeling Calm #63

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. 

It’s sunny, the paddling pool has been out, I’ve got my blogging mojo back and I’m going to be featured in a real life, on the shelf, people pay actual money for it magazine on Thursday.

Whilst I could stop there, I won’t. Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

I never seem to have enough time. I am always busy. But a bit of multi tasking here and a few extra minutes spent in the evening do seem to help.

Feeling Calm #61

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. 

It hs been one busy week! Husb has been busy, I have been busy, even little L has been busy. Having the Bank Holiday was a nice treat though.

Whilst we have been doing some lovely things I am hoping this week and next are a bit calmer.

Just too busy for the little man!

How To: Transform Your Garage into a Play-Den

With summer just around the corner, I’ve been thinking of fun activities to do around the home. Juggling life with a husband and toddler can sometimes leave play time a little stagnant and repetitive so I had a brain wave. What if I transformed our garage into a garage play-den?

Love Bomb Cushions & App Reveiw

When Sarah from Love Bomb Cushions got in touch to see if I’d like to review some of their products and the free to download game app I honestly didn’t know what to expect. I love to support parents with a work from home dream like mine though, so of course I said yes.

Feeling Calm #59

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. 

So last week I mentioned I was feeling stressed due to some changes at work and feeling bogged down with blog work. Well as I wrote I thought to myself that I could completely fix it. So I did.

I got my bum out of bed ridiculously early one morning and blogged my little heart out. Bam, one problem solved.

As for work, well, I’ve done what I do best. I’ve gone in with a smile on my face and a determination that regardless of the attitude of those around me I will be positive. That, coupled with a good bitch about my day to husb and a gin when I get home, means I’m doing OK.

So here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days, they’ve been good:
