My top three reasons that getting ones hair cut is not always an enjoyable experience!

Going to the hair dressers is something that many people find to be an enjoyable experience but upon a recent visit I remembered why I very rarely visit a hair dresser. You see my children arranged for me to visit the hair dressers as a mothers day present as I had not had a hair cut for about two years and I wanted something new.  Here are my top three reasons for why having a hair cut is not always as enjoyable for[Read more]

Wobbles Wednesday – MIA!

I am returning to the AutismMumma’s weekly weight loss linky hanging my head in shame as I am been missing in action for a few weeks now!  I got myself into a muddle with my weight loss efforts as I had arranged to have a week off as I had planned a camping trip with hubby and the kids and I knew that we would be buying lots of treats to take with us which would not bode well with[Read more]

Organic make-up review

For those of you that like to buy organic products I have found a website called Mypure that sells natural organic make up and skin care items which is great for those of us that want to look good but still do our little bit for the planet. I ordered a mascara and a lip gloss to try out as they are my two favourite items when it comes to make-up.  Thickening mascara in jet black by living nature which[Read more]

Themed family fun – week 7

The idea is simple – each week I will tell you a theme. It could be a colour, a shape, an animal, a holiday or anything. You then use the theme to have some family fun and write a blog post telling us all what you did. You might cook something or craft something or visit somewhere. Whatever you like as long as you are having fun. The rules. 1) Visit my blog every Monday to see what the weeks theme[Read more]

I’m back and sending out huge apologies!

Some of you may have noticed that I have been absent from the blog and all things blog related of late and I am very sorry to have just disappeared without giving any reasons to my absence.  I had hoped to have been more organised and to have arranged for posts to go live while the children were off school for the Easter holidays but things did not go as planned. I needed to take some time away to enjoy[Read more]

What is your home’s style?

Victoria plumb are currently running a competition to win John Lewis vouchers and all you need to do to enter is take part in their fun quiz which is a few simple questions to reveal your style at home.

Easter at Asda

As a mum on a budget I am always on the look out for the best prices of things, especially at times like Easter. I have been keeping an eye on the supermarket prices of Easter eggs and also looking to see how much other Easter themed items each store has on offer. This year Asda seem to have the best selection of Easter themed goods and the best prices too, so I have been doing all my Easter shopping[Read more]

My groovy update 03/04/14 – 09/04/14

This weeks update is not very interesting I’m afraid. I feel a lot better about life in general at the moment which is great. I gained a pound at weight watchers which was a pain but expected as I had so many treats for Mothers day last week so I’m not going to get down about it. It is the Easter holidays so all three girls are home from school which is lovely as no rushing around for school runs![Read more]

My week four results.

This week has been a lovely week once I had recovered from tonsillitis, what with Mothers day. I took Mothers day off as I knew that the kids had planned to get me McDonalds breakfast which is well over half of my daily pro points without the cakes and chocolates and the roast dinner that Darren was planning.   I decided that this would be the week to start exercising although I didn’t decided this until Monday after all the[Read more]
