Some may say that my school days were fairly traditional. I went to a local comprehensive high school, was studious, did well in my GSCE’s, went on to do A-Levels and then picked Business Studies to read at Uni. At the time I thought this choice of degree would keep my options open for many different career paths, as well as knowing that getting into…

Having been on the parenting social media scene for around 4 years now I have read a thing or two about how a lot of Mums feel trapped in a style rut, or are really struggling to identify with their style since having children.

I just wanted to do one last blog post before the twins officially break up from school for Christmas tomorrow, as a little Happy Christmas post to you all before I settle down into feeling festive and spending time with them. Dave finishes this coming Friday and so I’ve got a few days with the children this week to wrap presents, make mince pieces, watch…

So how is everyone getting on with their Christmas shopping? Are you feeling rather smug at having finished wrapping all of your presents, or are you in full-on panic mode about how much you have to do? My current state is that I’m actually pretty organised – although there are still some last gifts I need to get (there always is though, isn’t there?). Plus…
