March 16, 2018 admin 3

Being a working parent is hard. There is the balancing of work and home life, the juggling of meetings and child care, the parent guilt for not seeing the children enough and the professional guilt of not staying at work. So what do people do? Well apart form getting ridiculously stressed out it lots of people go in search of that work life balance, the answer to being a working parent, the job that fits […]

How I chose the name for my blog

March 15, 2018 admin 0

So many people ask me how I chose the name, The Strawberry Fountain, for my blog and so I thought I’d let you in on the secret. When I first started writing my blog I knew that I wanted to talk about two things: parenting and beauty reviews (although I don’t do many beauty reviews any more), anyway, I knew that I wanted something that could cover both so names like The Parent Blogger or […]

Reminiscing about our wedding day

March 14, 2018 admin 0

In just over a month my husband and I will be celebrating our 7 year wedding anniversary. I can’t believe it’s already been 7 years, it has gone so quick and when I think of our wedding day it seems like it was only a few months ago, yet we have achieved so much it that time that it also feels longer than 7 years, if that makes any sense at all. Either way we […]

10 top cleaning tips for parents

March 13, 2018 admin 0

I love it when my house is clean, who doesn’t? But sometimes spending hours cleaning only for it to be trashed again within 5 minutes of the kids coming home from school or from having to cook a meal in my sparkling kitchen, drives me round the bend.

Ever since we bought our new house back in 2013 we have been doing it up bit by bit. We now have two new bathrooms and a new kitchen as well as newly decorated bedrooms but we still have a few rooms left to do and no doubt as soon as we finish I will want to start at the beginning again, just don’t tell my husband. As we have moved from room to room […]

What was your favourite fashion trend?

March 5, 2018 admin 0

Fashion has always been somewhat of a mystery to me. One that I can never solve or keep up with. On the one hand fashion seems to change so rapidly that from buying a new dress to having an occasion to wear it, it seems to have gone from on trend to off trend and I am looking at those a round me wondering how they new and I didn’t. Yet on the other hand, […]

March 2, 2018 admin 0

Last year I successfully followed the slimming world plan and lost some weight in time for a family party and since then I have (shamefully), but some of the weight back on, so I am thinking of joining again. For me the plan is easy to follow, you can eat loads and enjoy a real variety of food and if you want to have treats you can use up to 15 syns to do¬† so, […]

Dozy Dogs – a product review

March 1, 2018 admin 1

When we were asked if we would like to review Dozy Dogs I just knew I had to agree, the tiddler is dog mad and loves anything to do with puppies or dogs and is probably the sole reason why I eventually caved and agreed we could get a family dog. Dozy dogs is a creative activity that consist of 3 different sized dogs 3 ready cut pieces of felt 3 felt pens a selectin […]
