The truth about Forever Living

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

A personal update

February 13, 2018 admin 0

It has been one and a half months since I left my career as a teacher to become a freelance writer. It has been the quickest 6 weeks ever, it literally feels like it has passed in the blink of an eye and teaching seems such a distant memory. I miss my students, loads, people think this sounds weird but I genuinely do miss them and wonder how they are getting on. It’s a bit […]

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 […]

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 […]
