Day out at Loggerheads in North Wales

June 29, 2016 admin 0

Over the last 18 months my husband and I have come to realise that the best days out with our boys are those spent in open spaces. We can admire the scenery whilst the boys can be boys, run, jump, climb and be noisy without fear of judgmental looks from others. We have also discovered that living only 20 minutes from North Wales is a huge bonus as they have loads of amazing and beautiful places to […]

Aloe Fleur de Jouvence by Forever Living

June 28, 2016 admin 4

One of the great things about my forever living business is that I get to lend people the products so that they can try before they buy. This is a fantastic idea as why invest in new products if you are not 100% sure you are going to love them. I find that people love this concept and often ask if I have any new products for them to test out, this week one of my […]

Grow your own tomatoes with Heinz

June 27, 2016 admin 0

In a bid to raise awareness about the benefits of growing your own vegetables and trying to encourage the nation to  get involved, Heinz have produced some beautiful pop up gardens across the country. As a thank you for writing about the gardens the wonderful people at Heinz sent me a pair of  gardening gloves (or at least two left hands) and some packets of tomato seeds to grow with my boys. My boys, like […]

My Favourite blogs

June 24, 2016 admin 0

A key part of being a blogger is reading other peoples blogs. How can you expect people to read your work if you don’t read theirs and reading other blogs is invaluable for so many reasons. You can work out what you like and what you don’t, what works and what doesn’t, get inspiration for other posts without becoming a repetitive voice on the web. Since I have started to follow and read other peoples […]

A mothers guilt

June 23, 2016 admin 2

I write this having just completed a twelve hour shift, my babies are already tucked up in bed after daddy has fed, bathed, played with them and completed the bedtime routine. I saw them briefly in a busy haze this morning as we all frantically prepared for the day, throwing cereal in a bowl for one and helping the other put on his socks, a quick kiss goodbye and that’s it. I wont see them […]

My favorite 5 chick flicks

June 21, 2016 admin 0

Last week I was laid up in bed having had an operation so whilst the boys where at school and nursery I made the most of having full control of the remote control and topped up on some girlie chick flicks. It is a very rare moment in my house when  I get to choose what we watch, let alone choose something for me to enjoy. It is usually a toss up between peppa pig […]

The world through the eyes of a three year old

June 20, 2016 admin 0

It is very easy to forget how innocent our children are from time to time, especially when they seem so advanced for their years and have an ability to operate technology that rivals most adults. But every now and then my  three year old will say something that will catch me off guard and remind me how little, sweet, innocent and full optimism he still is. He never fails to make me laugh just when […]

The strawberry fountain go strawberry picking

June 19, 2016 admin 2

Here at the strawberry fountain headquarters we love nothing more than, well, strawberries, of course! So what better way to spend our father’s day than to go strawberry picking. We headed over to Claremont Farm on the Wirral where you pick a variety of fruits throughout the year, currently available are strawberries and gooseberries, obviously we opted for the strawberries. With a large tub in hand we headed over to the rows and rows of […]

Do all brothers fight?

June 18, 2016 admin 8

I remember a time when my husband and I had the most adorable little boy, with blonde hair and blue eyes and a smile that could light up a room, he got attention everywhere we went. He was a fast developer and a great little companion, although he never, EVER, slept but we looked at him with adoration in our eyes and thought lets give him a baby brother or sister. Lets have another baby, […]
