Ant was an idiot

March 22, 2018 admin 4

Ant was an idiot! There is no sugar coating it and there is no getting away from it, driving over the limit is reckless behaviour, whether is was the aftermath from the night before or whether he had a few shots with his breakfast the outcome is the same, drink driving, and drink driving is never acceptable. Based on these facts I can understand the shock and horror that some of the public are displaying […]

Jobs for ex-teachers

March 22, 2018 admin 0

Since I left teaching¬†in January, I have been contacted by a number of fellow teachers congratulating me on my courage to leave and explaining how, although they love teaching, the environment, the work life balance and unrealistic expectations is making them dread going to work every day and they too wish they could leave. The conversations often go the same way, with me discussing my choices and encouraging them to follow their dreams if they […]

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. Finding the time to clean isn’t always easy either what with work, school runs, after school commitments, fitness classes and the odd occasion when I have a […]

Discovering my interior style with Julian Charles

March 7, 2018 admin 0

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, […]

How to use slimming world syns

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 […]

Living Coasts in Torquay

February 27, 2018 admin 3

Last week we visited my Nana in Paignton and on the Wednesday we visited Torquay for the day. After finding Living Coasts on the Visit South Devon website I knew I wanted to pay them a visit, especially as the penguins roam free which certainly isn’t something you get to see everyday.   We arrived at about 11am and thankfully the school holidays in South Devon differ to those in the North West so it […]

Torquay’s Dinosaur World

February 26, 2018 admin 5

Last week my family and I went on a little holiday down south, we started in Fareham staying with my brother and then travelled to Paignton to see my nana. Before our trip I researched places to visit and things to do and found Torquay’s Dinosaur World on the Visit South Devon website and thought it would make a great trip as both boys love dinosaurs but especially the tiddler.   Torquay’s Dinosaur World in […]
