FROM ‘Hygge’ to parenting, the Danish way of doing things is often widely talked about and one of Denmark’s latest exports is no exception. “The Children’s Meditations In my Heart” by emerging Danish author Gitte Winter Graugaard enables children to fall asleep within minutes. Now available in three different languages, it is beginning to change bedtime routines the world over.

Oh my word tomorrow is your birthday and you will be four years old and I literally don’t know where the time has gone. It honestly seems like 5 minutes ago I was writing something very similar for your third birthday and trying to cling to you being a toddler.

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.
With stories of childhood obesity never far from the headlines, it’s easy to believe that each generation of children is lazier than the last. But a new survey of 6 – 11 year olds suggests that British children believe they’re wrapped in cotton wool by their parents and would like more freedom to play outside. So that’s where the Sudocrem Play More Campaign wants to help.
Could Hygge Reduce the Stress of Parenting?
It’s no secret that Denmark is famous for being the happiest nation on earth. Now hygge-mania is sweeping the UK with thirteen books on the subject hitting the best seller chart in 2016. But can hygge, the untranslatable Danish concept of cosiness and quality time together, still be applied when you have a new baby in the house?

I don’t know what got me thinking about it, but the last days or so I’ve really been thinking about how much I have changed since becoming a mum. Obviously parenthood is life changing, I didn’t expect it not to be. Now three years in there are days I think I’ve got this parenting thing sorted, mostly I don’t, but that’s life.
I have literally lost track of how many times I have said ‘I just push through it’ this week. Don’t worry, I’ll push through it. It’s OK, I can push through it. Well you know, you just push through it. Again, and again and again.
As a parent I think that’s just what you do. As a working parent I have to. as a working parent who is also working very hard to not be a working parent I have to push through it even more!
Now I’ve seen loads of people’s #rockingmotherhood lists and boy are these women rocking it. I spend so long worrying if I’m doing it right, or feeling like a down right failure (3 year old who will not use the toilet unless he’s naked, regardless of what I do and try, fail!), but as you know I am big on positivity and this tag is all about the positivity so I’m in.
The guys over at Rattan Direct have recently put together a survey trying to find out what do parents do to unwind around the home.
I’ve taken it and it literally took about two minutes and you don’t have to give any personal details. Not even your email address.
I would be interested to see the results when they come in. They are asking questions about how and where in the house busy parents unwind. For me it’s my sitting room with a glass of wine. Although wine wasn’t an option during the survey, surely I’m not the only one.
