Muscle Food Review

If you buy the groceries in your house, you’ll know that buying any type of meat is normally quite expensive. It doesn’t matter where you shop, if you have a growing family, buying weekly shopping is expensive. I buy the food in this house and cook too. As you can tell from this blog I’m…

Walking Club in Ramsgate who’s with me?

So a few months ago, a friend and I were thinking of setting up a walking club of some sort. Obviously at the time everything was so weather dependent but now that the sun wants to stay, walking more and enjoying this fine coastline and fresh air seems like a great idea. We had originally…

Dribble Fever Has Arrived

As if having a fever for 24 hours wasn’t enough earlier this week, Emily’s teeth have decided to drop in for a bit of a party too. Now, thanks to the various few teeth trying to claw their way in, another level of dribbling has entered the building too. And I mean a lot. Dribbling…

Why the CBeebies iPlayer app is a lifesaver

I fully stand by my love of iPads and tablets when out and needing to keep little ones quiet at the table. I had mentioned it previously that I have my iPad on the go because of work but it’s also a good idea to have it on me because sometimes, keeping kids quiet can…

My Daughter Isn’t In Dresses, So What?

Emily looks gorgeous in dresses, but no she doesn’t wear them all the time. This seems to be a problem for some people, not naming names, that I don’t dress her in dresses because I want her to just have fun. So I felt the need to write something, it shouldn’t bother me, but it…

I Want To Make Swimming More Of Emily’s Life

After a slight disappointing start with swimming for Emily earlier on thanks to the temperature at the pool where the classes were in the early stages of her little life, I’m still not giving up on my little water baby. Emily loves the bath. It’s almost, if not probably, the best time of day for…

Infographic: Tips On Getting Your Dream Job

Ok, so this post isn’t exactly parenting related but seeing as it’s a topic that regularly comes up when I’m with my friends, I’ll share it. Those of you who know me well, know that I’ve worked in not only social media but recruitment too. Both industries are areas that I know so when friends…

Children and iPads

A huge debate always occurs around the topic of children and technology. Young children with phones and access to the internet freely is wrong, and I will always stick to my guns as I’ve worked in the online industry for 10-years and have seen some things. But I’m not writing about kids with phones, I’m…

Nappy wars 

When you become a parent, you expect certain brands to be better than others. The more expensive something is, the better, right? So when I first put Pampers on Emily, I will admit I was disappointed. I think Pampers is very overpriced for what it is. But this is what I think, everyone has their own…

The skincare edit: Caring for your skin as a mum 

When we’re pregnant, our skin goes through amazing stages to compete with those crazy hormones and can sometimes take its toll on our skin. And then our gorgeous bundle of joy arrives and yet more craziness happens. Trying to cope with little sleep, and up and down diet, feeling stressed and getting used to a…
