Sitting at my computer this morning I was just attempting to finish my previous blog post – the one about the gin. I wanted to publish it before lunch so I could sit with the monsters and spend an hour with them before I cracked on with a load of stuff this afternoon while they […]

Aldi Gin Cocktail Blogger Challenge

19 Aug , 2014

I guess I should add a little disclaimer before I start this post because I love Aldi. Yes – I am a total convert, and have been for AGES. Mr Aimee eased me in, first with a couple of bottles of wine, then allowing me to introduce #FizzFriday into our lives (the Cava AND the Prosecco is LUVVERRLLYY). […]

Let’s get this out in the open right now. My children (unless I fling the iPad at them), often act like somebody has injected them with Red Bull. “This isn’t a bad thing,” I tell myself as they talk 100 miles an hour asking questions. They are keen to learn.

Five things I hate to love about Social Media

13 Aug , 2014  

socialmedia

I think it’s fairly well known that I’m a bit of a social media addict fan.  I’ve always loved the online world, I just can’t help it. First chatrooms, then discussion forums. Then at one point I got the opportunity to review a load of social media sites for work, and that, along with smartphones (my […]

Quick and Easy: Pasta with salmon in arrabbiata sauce

12 Aug , 2014  

salmonpasta

God I love salmon. I love love love it, and when I see some in the shop I always throw it in my trolley with the very best intentions. Then the day we decide to have it, is the day all I really fancy is pizza. Inevitably we think “oh well we have a few […]

How It Is

When it’s all about danger.

For most of the last six years I’ve been working really really hard most of the time at keeping my children alive.  Shocking really isn’t it? Considering how much they drive me mad, I have, if I’m honest, spent from the minute I found out I was pregnant (or even before when we were trying), until now, trying […]

So, even though I swore I’d only video blog through the children, it seems I’ve bitten the bullet and gone for it about something more serious then I intended!  Here’s part one of a series about How becoming a parent has impacted your confidence. Be kind…

Summer Holiday’s – Two weeks in.

5 Aug , 2014

YES! TWO WEEKS SURVIVED! That’s right, today we have officially survived the first two weeks of the summer holidays – and between you and me, we’ve actually quite enjoyed it. Although, it’s a little ironic that I’m typing this while the boys are at the outlaws.

When you’re part of the Bad Mums Club – Second Child Complacency.

Ok, here’s the thing, I’m feeling a bit of mummy guilt right now. In fact, the last few weeks have left me with about six-years-worth of #BadMumsClub posts, but right now the one which I need to talk about, is second child complaceny.

Everything Else

When you love the little things.

1 Aug , 2014  

New career if writing doesn't work out?!

It’s been a bit of a hard week this week. I’ve been fairly deflated and disappointed about a few things, but, and I can’t believe I’m actually typing this, the children have managed to still make it enjoyable! So what a perfect week to remember to Love the Little things – Morgana’s link hosted over […]

Do you think before you speak?

31 Jul , 2014

I  know I’ve touched on it in the past, but I’m still struggling with the concept that the minute you fall pregnant you are legally exempt from the usual day-to-day rights when it comes to your body and your personal life…what? wait? A voice in my ear is informing me that in fact that isn’t […]
