Themed family fun – French week

Image by artur84 courtesy of freedigitalphotos.net Welcome to French week.  Thanks so much to my two lovely linkers from last week, so nice to have your support as this linky is taking longer then I anticipated to attract linkers. This week inspired by France, we decided to have a go at some french baking. We started by trying to make some some choux buns or profiteroles as we would normally call them. This did not work out for us at all as[Read more]

The prompt – Time management

This weeks prompt from Sara at Mumturnedmom is a topic and it is: I wish I had more time… Time is something that I often hear people wishing for which is funny as we all get the same amount of time in each day but some people do seem to be able to achieve so much more then others in those 24 hours.  Have you ever wondered how some people seem to be able to do so much each and every day[Read more]

Peanut butter chocolate brownies.

I love to bake and I adore the combination of peanut butter and chocolate! With Chloe’s 15th birthday coming up, I thought that I would make some peanut butter chocolate brownies, as I know that they are one of Chloe’s favourite cakes that I bake. The recipe is quite naughty but everyone deserves a treat now and again!  Ingredients. * 225g crunchy peanut butter. * 200g chocolate. * 280g soft light brown sugar. * 3 eggs. * 100g self-raising flour.[Read more]

My blog planner

Planning my blog is something that I have been trying to do since starting back in November and I have tried a number of methods and at last found one that works for me. I have a two part system and today I will tell you about the first part which is my blog planner. I have searched the internet for one to buy but I couldn’t find one anywhere in the UK, so then I started looking for home[Read more]

One on one time.

As a mum of three girls I think that it is really important to make the time to spend some quality time with each child on their own. Of course it is great to spend time together as a family, but sometimes children crave the sort of positive attention that only comes from one on one time.  Spending time with just one child can be tricky when you are busy with all that comes with family life and maybe you[Read more]

Themed family fun – week 11

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]

Themed family fun – Fish week

Welcome to fish week! This week we decided to make a picture of a fish in the sea. The main thing I like about these types of crafts is that they really give the children a chance to use their own imaginations and decorate the picture however they like instead of the more structured crafts that I normally do. This is so easy, but so much fun! All you need is some paper, glue, tissue paper and then any bits and bobs that[Read more]

The prompt – Luck

The Prompt for this week from the lovely Sara over at Mumturnedmom is a quote and it is: Calvin: You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocket ship underpants don’t help.                          Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes I think that luck is a funny thing, the definition on my computers app says – Luck * Something that happens to someone by chance, a chance occurrence. * A superstitious feeling that brings[Read more]

The birth story of Lauren.

I was 17 years old and pregnant with my first child. She was planned although looking back, I wish that I had waited a few years to have her as I missed out on a lot being so young, but of course I would never want to be without her now.  My pregnancy had been plain sailing really and I was excited to meet my baby and find out the sex of the baby as in those days we were[Read more]

A girly night

I decided to have some fun with Faith last weekend so we had a beauty night together, just the two of us. I brought some sweets and treats for us and we started the night by doing some craft together which was lovely as there was no distractions and we got to chat together loads while we were crafting. Then we decided to have a face pack but as faith is only small I didn’t want to put a shop[Read more]
