What I’ve learnt about my style in the last year…

DISCLOSURE: This post contains items that were very kindly gifted to me (they are marked {gifted}) 2020 was a funny old year – I mean thats the understatement of my life but I’m not going into that right now – and I found myself doing a lot of things I’d never done before – can anyone say home learning – actually please don’t, I’ve heard that phrase enough to last me until the kids leave school! I realised that being in lockdown, having a lot of gorgeous weather and maybe turning another year older, that a lot of things I…

New Year…Happier Me?

I’ve not written a from the heart post on here for a very long time. So I figured a little honest chat (or mind dump) over there wouldn’t be too he worst idea.  I can genuinely say, although for us, 2020 wasn’t the worst – we were very lucky – I can’t remember the last time I felt truly. That probably sounds ridiculous as I have four healthy (ish – Izzie’s spine aside) happy children, a wonderful husband and a lovely home. I feel selfish even writing it as I know I am very lucky – and I feel very…

Family Medicine Cabinet Essentials – Be Prepared this Christmas

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…

Wanting The Best Of Both Worlds

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…

Out Of My Comfort Zone, Confidence after Babyloss & Making New Friends

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. I spend my days with three people less than 3ft tall, lacking in adult conversation and always wondering whether I’m doing the right thing. That said I feel confident in my role as Mummy – I know that ultimately I am doing my best for them, and hopefully shaping them into the wonderful adults they will become. I found it hard for…

I’ve Been Quiet Lately… Our (sort of) New Normal | A Little Life Update

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…
