New resource for mums

Text in gold inside a square

I wanted to share with you today a powerful online resource which I have recently found called The inspiring Mummy Club.   What is it? This is an online community which teaches mums to take back control to change their lives through tools such as mindfulness, NLP, hypnosis and positivity. Everything comes in bite-sized chunks as they understand how busy mum life can be!  The doors of membership are only open until Saturday 8th at 6 pm, so if you would like[Read more]

Gratitude jars.

If you have not heard of gratitude jars before, a simple search on pinterest will bring up hundreds of examples. The basic idea is that each day that something lovely happens you write it down on a piece of paper and add it to your jar throughout the year and then at the end of the year you and your family can read them all out and reminisce about all the great things that you have been thankful for during[Read more]

The monster on my back

There is a monster on my back that I am always having to carry around with me, no one can see it, but I know it’s there. I can feel the weight of it weighing me down, sometimes I feel like I am being crushed by it.  I walk with my head down and my shoulders slumped over as I try and shrug it off, but it will not leave me alone. No one else can hear what it says[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]

Quote time – Nothing is impossibe….

Today I would like to talk about another of my favourite quotes. ‘Nothing is impossible, the very word itself says I’m possible’ I love this quote as it is so positive and I must admit that I really annoy my oldest daughter with this quote as I am always telling her this.  The thing is, Lauren has a very negative outlook on things (I guess she gets it from her dad) but it really frustrates me. I really believe that if you look at[Read more]

Little packets of love.

I like to give my children a little packet of love every year on Valentines day which is basically a small present packed in a variety of different ways over the years with a card to let them know that they are loved and thought of on Valentines day. It is especially nice for my two older girls as they are at the age where they worry about boys and Valentines day makes them worry more then normal so it[Read more]
