How to Choose the Best Mattress for Your Child

Switching from a baby’s cot over to an adult bed should be an exciting time, even though it is a reminder of how fast your children are growing up (boohoo!). However, it may also be super stressful for your child as they may end up crying for the first few nights as they miss their cot too much.

Why I’m So Open About My Life Through My Blog?

I have often thought what makes a blog authentic, interesting and engaging, and I have always come to the same conclusion. It has to be real and relatable that connects with the reader, and you sometimes have to lay your heart and soul on the page, and very importantly be honest, especially if it’s a personal post about yourself that’s when you simply can’t hold back, say it as is it. At least that’s my humble opinion. As the title says why am I so open about my life on my blog? Well, there are a number of reasons why,… [Read More]

OMG! Where Has The Last 23 Years Gone

My eldest daughter turned 23 years old at the beginning of July and I thought to myself, OMG! Where have the last 23 years gone? The years really do flash by in the blink of an eye. For me it really only feels like yesterday that I would sit on the patio and count the stars with her on a summer’s night at sunset, and try to pass on some words of wisdom to her, although we have had this conservation on a few occasions recently about how when she was four years old she would sit with me on… [Read More]

When Do You Stop Bailing Out Your Children?

When I was growing up I had very little. Money was always an issue. The truth is my mother didn’t have very much, and as the years went by I just accepted that what I was brought by my mother was what she could afford. The truth is I didn’t know any different, so I was always grateful because it was the norm to me. Being showered with gifts on a daily basis was definitely not me. As a child, on occasion I got myself in a bit of bother, whether it be financially or something else. I was left… [Read More]

Den Building:My Sunday Photo

During the last week the girls have been waking up at crazy early hours, this of course is down to the very hot and sticky nights we have been experiencing in the uk. It is of course very unusual for us to have such consistently warm weather, but I’m not complaining it’s beautiful and being able to live in shorts, t-shirts and flip-flops is the only way to live for me. So the girls getting up early has meant that every morning that I have walked into our lounge. A den has been made from the dining room chairs, and… [Read More]
