The Day I Ran Over a Cyclist

The Day I Ran Over a Cyclist

Last Sunday started off a day like any other. Burrito Baby had been poorly for a couple of days, showing what we thought were the initial signs of chicken pox, which threatened to get our holidays off to a really rubbish start. However, after a very long sleep she woke up seeming much better and the sun was shining so I hatched a plan to take the girls out and surprise them by taking them …

Does Your Husband Have A Beauty Regime Of Their Own? Here’s How It Should Look

Women these days have such varied skincare and beauty regimes. They can vary from the specific morning and nighttime rituals. Right through to using different products at different times of the year. Men, on the other hand, are a little more basic when it comes to things like this. Which, in fairness, I don’t think is necessarily a bad thing. However, you will also find that some men don’t take as much care of their …

How to Have Fun with Your Family This Summer

Summer is the perfect time to be outdoors with your children. There can be so many different things to do. Having an appreciation of the great outdoors is important to instil in our children.

The Real World Parenting Awards with Infacol

Sometimes, parenting can be a lonely business. Even if you have a loving partner to share the highs and lows, there are always times when we feel overwhelmed by the pressure of being a parent. Many of us are lucky though, in that we have that one person around to lend support, sympathy and occasional tea making skills, just to take the edge off and make us feel human again. Perhaps its a friend, family …

Getting Our Kids Outdoors

Getting Our Kids Outdoors

One of the main reasons that we moved to the countryside back in September of last year was that we wanted the kids to be able to spend more time outdoors, surrounded by nature. Our house, as well as having big front and back gardens, is completely surrounded by farmland and footpaths which are perfect for exploring or going on an evening ramble after tea. Here’s a shot taken by Husband just this evening whilst …

Stay Safe Online with Azoomee

In the past, I’ve admitted to being a helicopter parent and although I am still pretty overbearing involved in Sausage’s life, I do try to step back a little now that she’s getting older. Although she’s one of the youngest in her school year, she’ll be going into Year 4 in September, which means that that it’s won’t be long until boys and secrets with her friends are on the agenda. As someone who was …

Killing Carpet Stains with Carpetright and Dr. Beckmann

Being mother, dog owner AND renter of houses means that I am constantly aware of the carpet. Winter is a bad time because it means that every single time the dog leaves the house, I have to clean his feet on the way in so that he doesn’t get mud everywhere. Despite being the clumsiest member of the house (or perhaps BECAUSE of this…) I am constantly worrying about spills and potential stains because it …
