We’ve had one of those typical winter weeks, where its got colder, and the germs have started to creep in. If you’ve been around here for sometime, you will know that we don’t always have the best luck health wise over Christmas. I think its a combination of Ollie’s birthday being just before, and always picking something up from being around loads of people ay his party (this year we are holding it early so fingers crossed), and all the excitement and stress leading up to this big day. There years in a row we all came down with a…

I haven’t had the urge to sit down and just write for a very long time. In truth, since making more videos over on youtube, its been easier to just sit in front of the camera and have a chat. Although I also haven’t been doing much of that recently either to be honest. Having four kids is everything I thought it would be and more. I love watching them interact with each other (read that as fight when it comes to the boys), love seeing how their relationships with each other grow and its been the most amazing thing…

For the last 5 years I have been a stay at home mum. Mummy to two little people, later three. At home I am in my little bubble. I struggle from time to time as we all do.

Since I started ‘seriously’ blogging at the beginning of this year, I’ve always attempted to upload content at least three times a week. I even managed this throughout the summer holidays, despite having three kids to entertain 24/7. I actually managed to schedule posts during times we were on holiday, but I think I managed to burn myself out in the process. It’s not a lack of content or ideas – far from it. In fact I’d like to take this opportunity to say a huge apology to anyone waiting on content or reviews from me – they will be…

It’s a bit of a random one from me today. I’m definitely not pregnant, or preparing a hospital bag before we start. I do however have a few friends that are currently pregnant. In the past I have passed this list on to pregnant friends when they were packing their hospital bags – and so I thought I would pop the list down in a blog post – with some links to my favourite products – so that when I need to pass it on again I have it all ready. After three labours I think by the time I had…

As we are off on holiday tomorrow I thought I would write down my top 10 tips for packing for a holiday with children…. Get them to pack their own bags  – I don’t mean clothes, but give them a bag and whatever toys, books, games or hair things they want to take, they can pack in their own bag for themselves. It teaches them a bit of responsibility, and takes the pressure off of you if anything if forgotten. If you have a younger child who still uses a travel cot, I highly recommend one of these travel cot…
