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.

Safety First with Bridgestone Driveguard

Last week I was lucky enough to go to a great event hosted by Bridgestone to see just what a difference their Driveguard Tyres could make in an emergency.

I was blown away.

The main point of Driveguard Tyres is that they are Run Flats, so if  you get a puncture you can carry on driving. With Driveguard Tyres you can actually drive for 50 miles at a maximum 50 mph.

Feeling Calm #69

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 seems to have been a catch up week. It doesn’t seem to matter what I do it’s not enough. I’ve also been feeling a bit stressed out and a bit put upon recently. I need to get firmer with people and say no. People won’t value me or my time unless I do.

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

Feeling Calm #68

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. 

L and I have just had a nice week. The weather has been fabulous. We’ve been in the garden so much. Just being outdoors is so good for the soul. I don’t think I’ve felt this calm in a long time.

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

The #PrezzoLaFamiglia Challenge

We eat out as a family quite a lot. It is enjoyable and often a nice break during a long day out. We have taken L with us to restaurants since pretty much the moment he was bored but there are definitely some things that make the experience better than others. Prezzo have recently launched some great family sharing dishes and we went to check them out as part of the #PrezzoLaFamiglia Challenge with BritMums.

This Plus That Equals…. My Social Life

This plus that equals…. my social life

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 my social life.

I was reading a thread on Mumsnet last night where I girl was asking if it was unreasonable of her to be a bit hurt by her friends effectively icing her out. Why? Well because she had a child it seemed. Her social life seemed to be a lot like mine, and her friends, well they aren’t friends at all.
