Future-Proofing Your Young Family's "Forever Home"

Back in 2014, the then Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, decided to reduce stamp duty on new homes, slashing the cost of moving for more than 98 percent of the British public. But despite his attempts to get people buying again, the market for housing has remained pretty flat, especially in areas outside London and the major university towns. Young families, therefore, aren’t necessarily going to be able to ride a wave of house price increases up the property [click here to read on]

Drip Cake Course With The Odiham Cake Company

Since the drip cake craze started, I have been looking at photos of them in awe. I have wanted to learn how to make one for a while.  A few months ago our friend won a drip cake course at a charity auction. She gave the course to me as a gift and I was over the moon!  The course was with the Odiham Cake Company. Cake designer Gareth Jones has been delighting people with bespoke cakes since the business [click here to read on]

Cirque Du Soleil Varekai Review

I had seen Cirque Du Soleil on television before and always thought they were fabulous. When I was asked if I would like to go and see Cirque Du Soleil Varekai Tales of The Forest at the Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham I was very excited! I had an idea of what to expect after seeing them on screen but I had no idea how amazing it would be in ‘real life’.  Cirque Du Soleil transported us to the depths of the [click here to read on]

Hats Off To Working Parents

This was just a hobby and it helped me to make sense of motherhood and [click here to read on]

Under The Sea Party - Pin The Tail On The Whale & Walk The Plank

I love planning the games and crafts for Bob’s parties! I usually start with a ‘pin the something on the something’ idea. 🙂 We have had Pin The Wand On The Fairy and Pin The Horn On The Unicorn in the past. This year I thought of Pin The Tail On The Whale. Not only would this be fun, it also rhymed! 🙂 I drew a big whale (minus his tail) and Bob helped me to paint it. I then [click here to read on]

When The Going Gets Tough, It Might Be The Time To Relax

I have just tried to find a photograph of myself and my husband to accompany this post and I had to go back to 2010, before Bob was born! We have been out occassionally since then but our child free evenings are very few and far between. It has made me realise how important it is to find time for each other and I have asked my parents to come and babysit sometime soon so that we can go out. [click here to read on]
