As I sit here and type out this blog post, my Sister is currently at home frantically preparing for her wedding in just 4 days time. Bless her. It’s that week before, mad-build-up to your big day that makes you feel incredibly giddy with excitement and yet stressed out to the max because you are so worried that you don’t forget anything. The wedding is going to be near my Sister’s house in Hertfordshire. My little Sister gets married… View Post

Blogging is brilliant. It brings a lot of satisfaction, social interaction and a great deal of joy to many. Such as having lots of comments on a post that YOU wrote. Or being featured in a large publication. Or receiving a product and getting to review it. Or, when it starts leading to exciting opportunities. In the two years that I have been blogging I continue to fall even more in love with it. It… View Post

It’s a well-known fact that habits which are learned young are the ones which stay with us for the rest of our lives. With many of the earths natural resources under stress due to overuse, recycling is therefore one habit which we should all be striving to adopt. Getting children interested in (and used to) recycling any materials which can be re-used is an important habit to teach them from a young age. The best… View Post

Our summer holidays have officially begun. And, (to be honest), I don’t really know where the last school term went…it seemed to whizz by. But it’s been and gone now and the school holidays have arrived. 6 weeks of not having to be anywhere; no preschool run or routine!

One of our favourite things to do together – the twins and I – is to make home-made smoothies in our kitchen! The kids love them! I try to make one each day, or every other day, for the children…either after their lunch, or with their breakfast. It is such a great way of getting them interested in and enjoying their fruit and helps towards their 5-a-day portions. Plus they absolutely love helping Mummy in the kitchen… View Post

For a lot of parents, designing a child’s room is a wonderful and generous experience. I like the idea of putting together a special place just for the kid (or kids, if you have several!), and it’s fun to put together a space just for their benefit. Plus, you can indulge a few latent childhood passions along the way—you may love zoo animals, and this is your chance to put them on wallpaper! But for a lot… View Post
