Making Peace with Summer Fever

July 2, 2020 admin 0

Nobody likes to think about catching a fever. However, now that the lockdown measures are rapidly easing, your immune system is likely to go through a lot. First of all, let’s be clear about something. Developing a fever in the first weeks of the British summer is no sure tale that you’ve caught the infamous COVID-19. Nevertheless, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be cautious.   What would you catch a fever, you ask. There is […]

You’re Engaged: Now What?

June 23, 2020 admin 0

Getting engaged is super exciting, and you probably can’t wait to start telling people. Whether you get married next year or next week, you’ve promised to start a new chapter of your life with each other. You’ll have a special day, perhaps with your family and friends there to witness and celebrate your union. But when you’ve just got engaged, what should your next steps be?

how to wean your baby

Little Tummy baby food – A review

June 18, 2020 admin 0

We started weaning Layla at 6 months just as we did with the boys but unlike with the boys this time we have done a combination of pureed foods and baby led weaning. We have chosen to do a mix of the two methods for a couple of reasons 1. I find it easier to know how much Layla has actually consumed when using the purees and 2. I do worry about choking when doing […]

How to create the perfect card for Father’s Day

June 14, 2020 admin 0

Father’s Day is going to be a bit different in a number of ways this year due to the current lockdown rules, no big family meals, days out, or family gatherings.  So making sure we remember to send our dads a card and some presents to show them that we are thinking of them is even more important than usual.  If you have followed my blog for a while you will know that for me personalised […]

What to buy Dad this Father’s Day

June 2, 2020 admin 0

Well isn’t this just  the most bizarre Father’s day we could be having in the UK, a lockdown celebration like no other and one that brings with it lots of questions such as what to buy? And how to celebrate? This year a voucher for a beer tasting evening or tickets to a football match simply wont do, nor can you celebrate with a big family meal at your dads favourite restaurant, unless of course […]

May 22, 2020 admin 0

Life shouldn’t be all about diets and restraint it should be about enjoyment and balance and I truly believe that by making changes to our lifestyles we can all live a healthier life. These changes do not need to be big or dramatic changes they can be small and easy to implement, swapping one thing for another, or introducing something new. As long as you are consistent with the changes they will eventually have a […]

Everything you need to start weaning your baby

May 8, 2020 admin 2

This week is national weaning week (4th May – 8th May) and it just so happens to fall the week before Layla turns six months old which is when we plan to start our very own weaning journey. Despite having done this twice before with the boys I still feel very nervous, as well as a tad excited, about the whole weaning process and so I’m trying to get myself organised in advance. One of […]

If there has ever been an ideal time to binge watch great box sets on Netflix without feeling guilty then the 2020 lock down has got to be it. Truth be told I personally don’t feel the need for an excuse to binge watch box sets and am always on the hunt for the next best show, so for those that may have found themselves with a little bit of extra time on their hands […]

Firstly I want to make sure that you understand this is nothing to be embarrassed about, whether you have needed one before or whether you need one now due to the impact of the corona virus on your financial situation.

What to use your slimming world syns on

March 4, 2020 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 had baby number three and obviously put 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 […]
