Planning a holiday to Utah

February 6, 2018 admin 4

Last week I admitted that sometimes, just sometimes, when I am meant to be busy writing in my office I find myself online shopping and dreaming of holidays. Well, this time I have taken it a tad further and actually planned an entire family holiday to Utah. Don’t worry, I haven’t actually gone as far as booking this without speaking to my husband (although I am very tempted) but instead I have compiled the ultimate […]

The rustlers burger hacking challenge

February 6, 2018 admin 1

This weekend we took part in the rustlers burger hacking challenge. I hadn’t used these products before so I was interested and a little dubious to see what microwaveable burgers would be like. When I told boys we were having southern fried chicken burgers for tea they were very excited and when I told them they could choose their own topppings they got even more excited as there is nothing they like more than competing […]

What I’m really doing when I say I’m working

February 5, 2018 admin 6

It’s February, it’s raining, it’s cold and I’m bored. I am sat in my office trying to find some inspiration to write a wonderfully witty post about my children or a heart felt post that will resonated with my readers but nothing is happening. Instead I find myself dreaming of a holiday some place warm and the map behind me is not helping because I just keep looking at all the places we haven’t been […]

What can you do with your old clothes?

February 3, 2018 admin 1

In January I had a big clear out of the boys clothes and as part of #myyearofgiving I donated them to our local community hub where they would be given to families in need. This is the first time I had donated clothes in this way, previously I would tip them or take them to a charity shop and it got me thinking, what else can you do with your old clothes instead of throwing […]

Introducing Calla-Coll the collagen supplement drink

February 2, 2018 admin 2

Since I reached my thirties I have started to notice lines are appearing on my face more frequently and are getting deeper, the fat around my middle is harder to shift and I generally just look and feel older. I have always taken my body and my skin for granted and although I have always used various lotions and potions I have never really read the contents too much or focused on changing certain areas, […]

February 2, 2018 admin 0

Valentines day is only two weeks away and the shops are over flowing with pink and fluffy items, heart shaped chocolates and enough candles to see us through a black out. But sometimes all these options make it harder for us to choose what to get our loved ones, to find something that they might actually appreciate, want and use without us spending too much money because lets be hones,t most people are still reeling […]

Glam Goo A Product Review

January 31, 2018 admin 0

Last week the boys were sent a Glam Goo Slime and Accessory Deluxe Pack to review. The idea behind it is that you  design your own slime and then place it inside a ring and a clutch bag in order to create accessories. When it first arrived I was a little disappointed because it was very pink and although they are trying to make the slime appeal to girls I couldn’t help but get annoyed […]

My Year of giving – January

January 31, 2018 admin 0

At the start of this year I decided not to make any resolutions as such but instead to give what I could when I could to help others and embark on #myyearofgiving. I also decided to document some of the things that I do throughout the year, not to brag or fish for compliments but to show people ways they can make a difference and to encourage more people to do the same.   During […]

How a RAOK eased the pain of losing a baby

January 29, 2018 admin 0

We often talk about carrying out random acts of kindness (RAOK) and how we can use these to help others. Lots of people like to share what they did with the world through social media and discuss how it made them feel but we don’t always get to hear from the people who received those acts, so this year as well as taking part in my year of giving and completing some RAOK of my […]
