Poor lighting. Eye strain. Headaches. It will be a familiar sounding story to a lot of people and it’s not just because a lot of us were thrust into working from home unexpectedly, harsh overhead lights in the office can be just as bad as the dim 20 watt bulb you chucked in the spare room that was barely used before you turned it into an office, just grateful you had the space.Continue reading Quntis Screen Light Bar
I don’t know if this is just our household but working from home doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon, in fact it looks like becoming a permanent fixture. With that in mind there can be no more just making do with what we’ve got! Thankfully Lakeland Furniture have a huge amount of choice, so when it comes to finding the right office chair they’ve got your back. Plus they sell all sorts of other chairs and garden furniture.Continue reading Win an Office Chair
So how’s this lockdown treating you all? I’m finding it rather testing of I’m honest. Some things are so much better, some things are so much worse and oddly some of the things that are better are adding to the worsened. Any of that make sense? Probably not. I think there’s every chance I’ve lost the plot.
The first lockdown was ok, the weather was good, I had all those extra time to spend with L. We got the paddling pool out, we raised frog spawn, we cycles and walked and explored areas of our local countryside we’d never been too before.Continue reading Lockdown Thoughts
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 school holidays are looming, 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.Continue reading This Plus That Equals…. Cheering Myself Up
For me the new year wasn’t about resolutions but I did spend the majority of January learning some new skills. I took a Coding for Beginners Course with New Skills Academy.
It took me ages to choose which course to go for, did I go for a WordPress course, that would have been really useful for me and my blog. Did I learn something entirely new? Dog Walking, Payroll or Floristry. With over 200 courses to choose from it wasn’t easy for me but I settled with coding for a few reasons. Continue reading New Skills in Your Time
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.
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…. a balancing act
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 balancing act that is my life.
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.
Love Bomb Cushions is a family business manufacturing novelty Cushions and plush items. Sarah set it up whilst I was at home with her kids a couple of years ago. All in the hope that she could earn a living around them. So all very close to my heart as you can imagine. Continue reading Love Bomb Cushions & App Reveiw
This plus that equals…. my return to the workplace
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. The last few weeks I’ve been really busy, kind of stressed out and getting used to how things are now. Going back to work has been a real change for me and I thought you’d like an update on how I’ve found it.
