Oversharing And The Unspeakable

Since becoming a parent I have met lots of other mummies. Some have become close friends and others I have chatted to briefly whilst our children played together. I still find it strange how quickly you can bond with people when you have children in common.  You would think that you would stick to pleasantries when you don’t know someone but being a mummy seems to give you a bond. I have been known to swap birth stories with other [click here to read on]

My First Attempt At A D.I.Y. Haircut

I haven’t had a haircut in far too long! I struggle to find time to go alone. The last time I went I took Bow with me and it wasn’t much fun.

The start to the New Year often brings about new beginnings, resolutions and a sense of hope.

Hearty & Healthy Breakfasts to Kickstart Your Day

At the start of the new year, many of us are looking for ways to eat healthier. I can be very unhealthy. If I’m in a rush I am happy to replace lunch with chocolate. My children eat quite healthy but again, when we are short of time, we can be guilty of turning to ready meals rather than cooking fresh vegetable filled meals.

Fun Party Dresses for Busy Mums

As you all know, I love a party, especially organising them. I love choosing a theme, working out what food to serve, how to decorate the room and what activities to include. Like many mums I tend to get wrapped up in sorting everything out for the Bob and Bow and end up leaving getting myself ready to the last minute. I once forgot to take my coat out with us when it was freezing but at least I had a sticker book.
