Ella’s Kitchen The Easy Family Cookbook Challenge

My girls are becoming increasingly interested in cooking. I recently taught them how to toast their own crumpets and it was lovely to see their proud faces when they did it all by themselves (with assistance obviously). We were recently asked by Ella’s Kitchen to take part in a cooking challenge with the girls using their brand new cooking book named the …

Young Mum? You Are Not Alone! #CMYANA

Channel Mum recently shared that 9 out of 10 Mums feel lonely and it started their You Are Not Alone (or YANA or use the hashtag #CMYANA) campaign. It has really hit the media and it has also got me thinking about my own experiences of being a mum and feeling lonely. I think I most felt the loneliness eight …

Google Home UK Launch Party

Last week Hubby and I hopped on a train and headed to London. I get nervous for every blog event I attend but this one was on a whole new level of nerves. We were heading off for a dinner arranged with Google. I sensed it was going to be a big event as other bloggers announced their attendances and …

Feeling Broken

Today I was meant to be heading off for a coffee morning with the mums from P1s school. They don’t get organised very often and I am definitely not in contact with them as much as I’d have hoped. I think I’m a bit of a stranger to be honest especially now the drop offs in the mornings are super …

Kidney Disease & My Family

Growing up I was extremely close to my Grandparents. I spent a lot of time with them whilst my Mum and (ex) step dad worked hard for my brother and me. I remember times when we’d walk up to town with my grandparents and my Nan would have to stop and catch her breath frequently. She would also feel the …

Having A Schedule On My Blog & YouTube Channel

One of my New Year resolutions was to create more of a schedule on both my YouTube channel and my blog. Last year my blog got a bit chaotic. I was posting several times a day and then would miss a few days. Although there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that, it felt a bit messy to me. So far this …

Easy Shortbread Recipe With Kids

Now that the Christmas and New Year excitements are over, it’s time to settle into a little bit of a routine again. P2 had been off of nursery for a full month and during that first week of January I could tell she was a bit bored and I quite frankly was frustrated by all the demands and emotions. On …

My Blog Turns Four & Goals For 2017

It’s a new year and my blog is celebrating yet another birthday. I have no idea where the past four years have gone. So much has been achieved and blogging has become a way of life and not just a little on-the-side hobby I once had in 2013! I started this blog purely because I wanted to have a bigger …

Share Your Year – Our 2016

Last year I wrote a review of our year. I’d completely forgotten about it until I stumbled upon it a few weeks ago. I sat for a while reminiscing and decided that it would be a great idea to do this again and look back on our 2016. I know before I took the time to search, that this year …

How My Camera Has Changed The Way I Blog

I have been blogging for very nearly four years. When I think about what my life was like and just how far not only have I, but my family, come since I began my blog is just incredible. I have had so many opportunities that have changed me and shaped me. So much has changed since I first dipped my …

Birthday Shopping With My Grandad & Mum

For Christmas last year my Grandad promised me a shopping trip. It was his way of giving me a present. I ended up going child free and meeting my Grandad and Auntie at the shopping centre. We did lots of shopping and then had lunch on my Grandad’s wallet which obviously is always fantastic. I never know what to ask …

My 24th Birthday At Bewl Water

Since becoming a Mum my birthdays do not feel as significant. Apart from the fact I am getting older, my birthday just feels like a normal day. I wake up with the kids early, I get them breakfast, get them ready for wherever they are going that day. However, this year I invited my Grandad along for my birthday and …

Why Won’t She Sleep?

I am writing this on the evening of the 4th August. We’ve had a pretty good day in the scheme of things. It started with a trip to the school to drop P1 off for her summer school and the other two were able to play for a bit in the playground. I then went to the doctors, we went …

It’s been about a month since I posted a My Sunday Photo. Life has been so incredibly busy and I’ve felt a bit guilty for not actually posting because that was the whole point of taking part. But with not having a car, feeling utterly exhausted for the majority of every day, I just had no motivation to sit and …
