How one Random act of kindness can change the course of your life forever

February 28, 2018 admin 0

Last month Julz told us her story of how a random act of kindness eased the pain of losing her baby daughter and this month Miriam from Faith Mummy tells us how one random act of kindness from her childhood changed the course of her life forever. My family were poor when I was growing up. My two brothers, my sister and myself lived in a council flat with no central heating and threadbare carpets. […]

My year of giving – February

February 28, 2018 admin 0

I have now completed two months of #myyearofgiving challenge and I do find that I am looking for ways to help others and reading charity updates online more and more. The most obvious way to give to others is in the form of financial aid but this whole project was about me identifying other ways to give, other ways to inspire people to be generous and think about their actions and help or give in […]

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 […]

Hotter shoe review

February 25, 2018 admin 0

Earlier in the year I was lucky enough to win a pair of shoes from Hotter, a Great British shoe designing company with an online service as well as stores across the country. The best thing about Hotter shoes is that they are designed with both comfort and style in mind, which is so important for foot health and fashion. They also cater for both wide and narrow feet making it easier than ever to […]

February 24, 2018 admin 46

I am super excited to be able to share this competition with you all. Last year I was lucky enough to review The Children’s Meditations In my heart with my children and I can honestly say it is one of the most beautiful books we have ever used, so when I was asked if I would like to run a competition to share this book with my readers I was more than happy to agree. […]

Mothers day gift guide

February 17, 2018 admin 0

Mothers day is less than a month away and as the date seems to change from one year to the next I thought a little gift guide might be the gentle reminder that some people men may need. As well as a reminder that Mothers Day is on 11th March this year I thought I would also give you some awesome inspiration for treating your mum or helping your children treat theirs.   Perfume Most […]

Gel-a-peel do geletines

February 16, 2018 admin 0

You all know how much we love Gel-a-peel in this house, the boys are crazy for the stuff, especially the tiddler. He has made a t-shirt with a gold ice cream on it, bracelets, necklaces and even a pair of earrings for me (which he insisted I wore for an entire day). So when we were asked if we would like to make some valentines day cards with gel-a-peel and instantly had two thoughts   […]

The Wizard of OZ at St. Helens Theatre Royal

February 16, 2018 admin 0

On Wednesday we payed our second visit to the Theatre Royal , this time to see The Wizard of OZ. Last time we sat high up and had a wonderful view of the stage, whereas this time we were seated on the lower floor and it made me realise what a nice little theatre St. Helens is,  it had a lovely personal and intimate feel to it and I think I would probably choose these […]

Circus Extreme at Event City – Review

February 14, 2018 admin 4

Last night we had a three generation family night out to watch Circus Extreme at Event City in Manchester. This was the first time we had been to see this show and I wasn’t too sure what to expect and as it started at 7:45pm I was a little worried it might be too late for the boys and they might fall asleep. I needn’t have worried they were absolutely transfixed from start to finish. […]
