As you will know from my weekly vlogs that you can find on my Twinderelmo YouTube channel, I am back on the Slimming World wagon and am hoping to lose nearly two stone and get back to target membership. Whilst losing weight is good, there are other reasons I want to lose weight other than the number on the scales. Be able to walk up the stairs without being out of breath I can’t believe how unfit I am. I actually have a gym membership and yesterday was my first session in over two months. I am paying out money…

I love to do a weekly post where I can that gives a round-up of my week. It’s easy to forget that my blog is ultimately all about me and my family so I like to update you guys on what we’ve been up to and #LittleLoves gives me the perfect opportunity to do this. So welcome 2018 and my first #LittleLoves post of the new year.   I made a special trip to the library as I have decided I want to read more. I chose three books and have made a start o this one from Lindsey Kelk…

For most of us, keeping on top of the finances is a bit of a struggle. It is all too easy for things to get out of control. This is particularly the case when it comes to your fuel and power bills.

January is easily the worst month of the year. Everyone is on the comedown from December’s festivities and with the grey dull weather and everyone watching the purse after indulging at Christmas, it can be a somewhat bleak time. I am re-joining Slimming World today after a very naughty few months and along with trying to lose the weight I’ve managed to put on over Christmas, but aside to the fact that I am wanting to lose weight I really want to be more frugal with our food shop. We easily spend over £100 a week on food yet never…

I know I keep moaning but my gosh, doesn’t January suck? It is without a doubt, the worst month on the calendar and it really is such a let down after the amazing month of December which precedes it. I know every month cannot be filled with so much fun but January really is so bleak and here’s why January really sucks in comparison to December.

Now, if like me, you dread that certain point of a week when you know it’s bath time….and you can’t put it off any longer either – then it’s time to rethink bath time. From the moment the tap starts running, my twin girls just play every trick in the book to either avoid getting into the tub or are just determined to hate every second when they finally do get in. Whether it’s the fear of getting water in their eyes, the idea of being naked, they feel cold when they’re in the bath or just generally hate being…

Whether we’re just too busy looking at our smartphones, we’re to busy being parents or just generally exhausted from everyday life – it really can be impossible to remember everything! Whether it’s where you parked the car, or where you put your keys, forgetting the skirting boards when you clean (take a look at skirtingsrus.co.uk if yours need replacing urgently) there’s always something that has fallen to the backs of our minds – never to return! Here we look at some of the things we always forget! How many apply to you? The essentials You probably forget one of these…
