My baby is 9 today. When talking about him I always say “my little boy” and I think people presume he’s about 3. Truth is, he will always be my little boy. The one where it all began, nine long years ago. Life is so very different now to what it was back then and I am so grateful to have had him by my side. This last year has seen him grow in more ways than one (he’s a bloody giant!) We have experienced a taste of hormonal strops and boy they aren’t fun! He is needing me less…

I hope you all had a lovely summer. It’s just zipped by in a sunny/rainy flash hasn’t it. I have absolutely loved it if I am honest. Yes the kids have driven me mad at times, but I have really enjoyed our adventures including our family holiday. I am looking forward to some form of routine Plan our holiday to Wales DONE. We visited so many lovely places on our trip to Anglesey. I wrote about 5 of our favourite places here. Visit Hanbury Hall, Croome and Errdig NT. FAIL! Instead we visited other National Trust sites including Dudmaston, Carding…

It is under three weeks until we set off for our trip to Disneyland Paris. To say I’m excited is quite the understatement. I’ve been busy buying Disney clothes and planning our days I can’t quite believe how fast it has  one round. Ever since I was a little girl crying at Dumbo and dreaming of being Cinderella as I clip clopped around our living room in my Mom’s baby blue high heels, Disney has been such a favourite and special part of my life. I don’t think I realised how special until we booked our holiday.

When you are offered the chance to review: Disney on Ice Presents Frozen at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham, you know you are going to score some serious parent points. Almost three years from the release of the film, Frozen mania is still going strong and this show from start to end was truly magical. We have never been to see a Disney on Ice show before so wasn’t quite sure what to expect. My daughters turned three in June and I did wonder what they’d make of it all in a large arena, but from when the lights went down…

Hi guys. Here is the place to link up your monthly bucket list. If this is your first time then you can see how it all works by seeing some old Monthly Bucket List posts here. What do we all think of the new badge? I thought it was time for a new spruce up! The list can be as personal or professional, short or long, achievable or dreamy as you like! There are no zero rules or pressure here. Each month I’ll do a round up of what I can cross off my list as doing and what else…

During half term, we took our first ever trip to Butlin’s Bognor Regis as we have been chosen this year as ambassadors. We have never ever been to this iconic holiday venue so were keen to see what it was like. Prior to the trip, I had researched a lot online and loved that the website gave us a countdown which Charlie wanted to check regularly! We were very excited that during May half term Dick and Dom were visiting so Charlie was ready to do some shouting of “bogies!” Bognor Regis is in Sussex and was about three and…

I have been doing periodic reviews of the Polar Loop 2 activity band I was sent back in December and three months on, I thought I’d share my final opinions. I decided in January that enough was enough and I needed to adopt a healthier and sustainable lifestyle. No longer would evenings be spent bingeing on crisps, fizzy drinks and copious amounts of cheese and bread. Along with the diet side, my fitness levels were shocking. At the grand age of 30, walking to the top of the stairs and being out of breath really was quite shameful so the…
