Seeds Pack the Ultimate Punch (Giveaway)

Seeds Pack the Ultimate Punch (Giveaway)

Any parent of young children will be familiar with those times when you grab for something – anything – that will give you the energy to get through the next few hours without falling asleep on your laundry pile or sink full of dishes. A tablespoon of peanut butter at 9pm; half a baguette at 5am; handfuls of dry cereal as the older kids eat breakfast and you look for your keys, and shoes. While …

From Schools to Car Seats – Making the Best Choices for your Kids

One of the most daunting things about becoming a parent is the constant second-guessing when it comes to making the right decisions for your kids. When you’re young and single, your decisions largely only impact yourself but once you throw another human into the equation, it becomes all that much scarier! Today, I thought I’d take a look at some of the decisions that we found most overwhelming and what we did to help. Safety …

Making Holidays Simpler

As you’ll know if you read MTW regularly, we’ve yet to take the girls away on holiday. Having an elderly dog makes it basically impossible, but we’d love to take them away sooner rather than later and are lucky enough to live close to an airport which flies to some really great, family-friendly destinations. I’ve been doing some research on how to make family holidays easier to manage and thought I’d share some of them …

Three Times When I’ve Needed Money Fast

I have to admit, I’m not one of those people who manages to save money very well. As soon as I get paid and my bills are taken care of, the remaining money seems to burn a hole in my pocket until it gets spent and this means that there isn’t much to squirrel away at the end of the month. However, this approach to money isn’t very useful when an unexpected expense comes along, …

Husband and I Take a #CouplesQuiz for Bed Guru @bedguru

This weekend is my 33rd birthday and I realised that this means that Husband and I have been together for a third of my life, which is pretty damn significant in this day and age. We don’t claim to have a “perfect” relationship (is there even such a thing?) but the fact that we’ve lasted this long is pretty damn impressive when you consider how common divorce is these days (and how difficult I am …

What is a Limited Liability Company Tax ID

Limited liability companies are a great way to start your business, especially when you are starting off small as it is the least complex in comparison of the other business structures. However, even as a small company or a company of one, yourself, you still need to get a limited liability company tax ID. Difference Maker There is a big difference between limited liability companies and all of the other business structures when it comes …

Staying Fit with a Toddler in Tow

You’d think that running around after a toddler all day would be enough to stay fit, but being at home all day and working from here too means that I’m often quite sedentary. I’m lucky enough to have a gym membership and an absolute SAINT of a mother-in-law who looks after BB when I want to work out, but I’ve been tryin to think of ways to be more active during the day, even when …

My 33rd Birthday

My 33rd Birthday

This Sunday is my 33rd birthday. Woohoo, right? Except, not really – who actually celebrates being 33?! I’ve actually been spoilt rotten already by Husband – my laptop died a few weeks ago, so he bought me a brand-spanking new one as an early present, AND surprised me with a grey leather Pandora bracelet and moonstone birth charm that I’ve been coveted for ages last week! However, I usually get money as a gift from …

Planning for the Future

A few years before Burrito Baby came along, I was working in an Accountancy practice, doing payroll and assisting with accounts, when my boss made me aware of an online service which allowed you to input your date of birth to allow you to work out when you’d be eligible for a state pension. It turns out, I won’t actually reach state pension age until I’m 68 which means my generation will be expected to …
