Fitness with my daughter

Lately I have noticed that my eldest daughter is eating less than usual and choosing to eat more fruit for a snack rather than reaching for cereal bars. Yes it’s a good thing but it got me thinking why? When I asked Miss C why she wasn’t finishing her meals she told me she had […] Read more…

What I do when I loose motivation to write

Over the last week or so I have lost my motivation to write. Even opening my computer to look at my blog has been a no go. I just couldn’t be bothered. I work during the day so I write in the evenings but I’ve just been so tired and preoccupied with other aspects in […] Read more…

Mum i’m too old for my toy box

Yes Miss M (my nearly six year old) has given up her toy box and everything in it. Her exact words to me were “mum i’m too old for my toy box”. Granted a lot of it was bits and bobs but there were some toys in there that she loves loved. *Sigh* ok I admit, […] Read more…

Is blogging a hobby or an addiction?

I started my blog a few years ago now as a hobby. I had heard about Twitter and had read blog posts before but I had no idea how to set up a blog. As a lot of you will know I am not tech minded at all. I didn’t even understand the point of […] Read more…

I’m tired, really tired

Every day I am tired. I wake up tired, go to bed tired and often fall asleep during the day if the house is quite. They have to be engrossed in a movie or be out with their Grandparents for the house to be quiet. I admit, I have been having a tough time with my […] Read more…

Braun Beard Trimmer BT5010 review

Mr B has a beard, I personally think it really suits him but because he shaves his head several times a week he has to ensure his beard is managed and looks nice and neat. He isn’t one for looking pristine at work but when he is going out in the evening then that’s a […] Read more…

Maybe I do need help

Miss M’s behaviour is becoming more and more of a problem as time goes on. I love her to bits but I need help. I have spent countless hours explaining to my 5 year old why no means no and that stropping will not make me say yes. I hasn’t worked. She has sat on […] Read more…

My money my choice

I was involved in a conversation earlier this week about what after school activities our children are involved in and how much money different activities cost. I said Miss M has swimming lessons and Miss C plays girls football which Miss M wants to join in September. One women replied saying, “I don’t know why […] Read more…
