I went to the hairdressers and Emily hated it.

It’s a known fact I rarely if ever go to the hairdressers, it’s nothing to do with the trade and I’m no hobo but my mums a hairdresser so I have always had my hair done at home, for free without all the fuss. Sam’s cousin Jo, owner of JoJo’s hair and beauty and part…

We’re back to sleepless nights again

I thought this was over. But no, those times before where I thought I had it all covered, I was back to my sleep-through-the-night routines again, oh how I miss them. I assumed teething or maybe growing pains, but it appears it’s normal once again to have terrible nights sleep. Whilst Sam sleeps soundly upstairs…

Why Amazon Prime’s subscribe and is a lifesaver for any parent

I’ve been an Amazon Prime member since last year and I love it. I signed up admittedly because my niece wanted a particular doll, a Monsters High doll that I said I’d buy for her and couldn’t find anywhere, apart from Prime. But I don’t just use Prime for its useful services like next day…

Am I mad to be already thinking about Christmas? presents?

Don’t laugh, it’s true I’ve been thinking it. I know I shouldn’t and yes it’s only August but I’ve already bought 3 Christmas presents, 1 of which I bought 2 months ago. Thing is there are a lot of people to buy for and instead of leaving it all last minute like some, I think…

What’s your child’s favourite book?

Emily is obsessed with books. She gets so excited when Sam and I read to her but she’ll happily read by herself if she wants. Funnily enough she’ll amuse herself with books that aren’t even for her age group, she likes to flick through the pages and point at the pictures muttering words to herself….

What are you doing this summer with your kids?

With the recent temperatures heating up the country making a plan for the summer holidays with Emily has been difficult. Ok so technically it’s not summer holidays for us as I work from home but it’s still the summer. What have we got in store for Emily? Well we’re going to Bristol to visit family,…

Let’s hear it for the rain! *round of applause*

I’ve gotta say I never thought I’d say this but thank fuck for the rain. Every drop that pat pat patters on the roof, I’m loving every drop of it. The last few weeks whilst lovely, the sun has been ridiculously hot. So hot it’s almost felt like an oven cooking us with its intense…

There’s a new app challenging the world of food waste

Food waste is a huge global problem. I hate food waste but my cut down on it doesn’t equal to the amount wasted each year. Every year around Christmas, roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption gets lost or wasted every year. According to The Telegraph: This equates to…

Ramsgate needs more activities for children under 5 throughout the year

I said this before and I’ll say it again, there just isn’t enough activities for younger children in and around Ramsgate, thanet even, especially in the summer. This week kids across the country break up for the summer holidays. 6-7 weeks of children aged 4-16 off and parents frantically trying to figure out how to…
