Do you want some a bit of quick, easy and fun Halloween decoration ideas? Well you’re in the right place. L and I got our crafting on with some of the amazing products available from Hobbycraft and really dressed up our doorway.
We were lucky enough to be sent a #makeitscary gift hamper and we’ve had some real fun.
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.
L is one very lucky boy. Very lucky indeed. He was recently asked if he would like to receive a mystery box, filled with toys, from Kids Parcel. Timing wise it couldn’t have been better, arriving just a few days before his birthday.
For my birthday I was given a great new 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 and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.
Last week I worked full-time hours for training and it hit L really hard, he was with grandparents and nursery and barely saw us. He’s got some real separation anxiety and it’s been tough.
This week has been a bit more back to normal, I’ll be working today and hopefully finding out my hours for the next few weeks. I hope I can start to find a routine and I have to make sure that L isn’t put in that same position again.
The uncertainty and lack of organisation has been stressful for me as well. I really hate no knowing what’s happening and it’s put an awful lot of strain on me. So I hope things improve quickly.
Without further ado here are my 10 moments from the past 7 days;
Unilever and BritMums recently set a very interesting challenge. The #BrightFuture initiative is all about uniting communities and encouraging small changes in everyday life that will in turn have a positive impact on the world.
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.
