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]

Our relaxed morning story.

Mornings for us are quite relaxed and you may be thinking to yourselves that there is no way a family morning can go smoothly on a school day, but it honestly can if you plan ahead. We get up at 7am and all the children know that they must get dressed before coming down stairs. I also get ready for the day as soon as I wake up. We then all sit down to breakfast, on weekdays we normally have[Read more]

Number 14 – check!

Today is the day that I can successfully check off another item from my 40 by 40 list! I feel that I have now been smoke free long enough to say that I have officially given up smoking and my goodness do I feel better for it! I am really proud of myself as it has been a long time since I actually achieved something that I had planned to do and it took me a really long time and[Read more]

The prompt – week 9

The Prompt for this week from the lovely mumturnedmom is a quote and it is: Spring is the time of plans and projects. Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina I like to think that spring is the next step for planning and goal setting after setting new year resolutions. When we get to spring it is the perfect time to review those goals that we set ourselves and make an action plan on moving forward adjusting our previous goals to fit where[Read more]

Less food waste = more money!

Image courtesy of dreamstime.com According to the love food hate waste website we throw away 7 million tonnes of food and drink every year and as a mum trying to feed a family on a budget I thought that it would be a good topic to cover. It may sound silly to most but it was not until a year or so ago that I learnt what the differences between the dates on food actually meant. I use to think[Read more]

40 by 40 part one

I have been reading a lot of blogs lately and I have noticed that a few of them have a bucket list of things that they would like to do before death. A bucket list is something that I have often thought about doing mostly since watching the film, but to me it just seemed that with no proper date in mind I would probably write the list and then completely forget that it ever existed. However, I have now found the[Read more]
