August 10, 2020 admin 0

This week it is Afternoon Tea Week and to celebrate Buyagift sent me and my mum to the Townhouse Chester to try out their Afternoon tea for two with bottomless prosecco.

The Buyagift voucher costs £59.90 which entitles you and a friend to afternoon tea and an hour and half of bottomless prosecco, making it great value for money. The voucher […]

What is CBD?

August 8, 2020 admin 0

Have you ever asked “What is CBD?” Three little letters. CBD The once overlooked compound seems to be popping up everywhere these days. All the cool kids are using it. And the uncool ones, too! Also, it comes in so many different forms. CBD oil. CBD dabs. CBD patches. CBD edibles. What are all these things? What the heck is CBD anyway? I’m so glad you asked. Cannabidiol is really hard to spell. Which is […]

How to budget successfully

July 26, 2020 admin 0

Some people are brilliant at budgeting and know their incoming and outgoing expenditures to the penny, other people have a rough idea of what comes in, what goes out and how much they have to play with each month whereas some people haven’t really got a clue and simply hope for the best. Talking about finances can be tricky, embarrassing and even depressing but it really shouldn’t be a taboo subject anymore. The more we […]

The Gtech AirRam and multi vacuum review

April 22, 2020 admin 0

A few weeks ago I was very kindly sent the Gtech AirRam and Multi Vacuum combo to review and then life went a little crazy with the corona virus and I put blogging to one side whilst I concentrated on finding a new normal for my family. Now, a few weeks later and settled in to some sort of routine, I have managed to find the time to review our new vacuum and despite my […]

Lock down is tough. Home schooling is even tougher. But I am forever grateful that during this time we have both a garden and a village that we can use during the day for exercise and I really feel for those that have limited outdoor space they can’t easily access at the moment.  I am feeling even more grateful for the work opportunities that I am still getting, including  the one we have been working […]

The Elvie Breast Pump – Is it worth the money?

January 26, 2020 admin 0

In November we had our third (and final) baby and I knew that, like with our previous 2, I wanted to breast feed this baby if at all possible. However, I also knew that this wouldn’t work if I was as prudish, shy, and embarrassed when it came to feeding in public as I had been the last two times. You see due to the big gap between babies 1 and 2 and then baby […]

The nursery makeover with Valspar paint

January 2, 2020 admin 0

When we were pregnant with our third baby we made the decision to keep the gender a surprise, although secretly I was convinced we were having a girl, which meant when it came to decorating the nursery we needed to opt for neutral colours. Having once been the tiddlers nursery it was already painted baby blue and white, not very neutral and a tad out dated having not been re decorated for 5 years so […]

Fairy Milk Mother – A review

November 10, 2019 admin 0

I was recently introduced to a company called the Fairy Milk Mother who offer subscription boxes for breastfeeding mums. Now I’ve said it before, these subscription boxes are popping up all over the place for so many different reasons, pets, kids, beauty, periods, you name it there is a subscription box for it and some are awesome and some are just a little silly in my opinion. However, at 38 weeks pregnant with the desire […]
