The Dilemma of more Children

I always knew I wanted kids, always, and when my step son came in to my life when he was just 1 it was a very surreal and new experience for me. He was a wonderful little boy and it gave me a chance to realise the fun side of ‘step-motherhood’ without all the physical pain that went with it. Fast forward 7 years and he has just turned 8! It has gone so incredibly quick. Now we also have a 1 year old too and it is like I can never remember the pain that I went through. Everyone  ...

Finally picking up the Books again! | ABBBC

It has been a hell of a long time since I tackled a book. Nearly a year to be exact. I have missed it so incredibly much. The past 12 months have gone by in a blur and the time to pick up a book has not been there, I thought. In the mornings I get up with Evelyn no later than 6:30 and we get changed and ready for the day and breakfast is in front of her by 7. Whilst she eats I usually check emails and respond to clients and see the mornings updates on social media. And let me stop you right  ...

Staying Organised | A Busy Mums Guide

I feel like I am on the go dawn until dusk every single day. I literally have my diary with every single place I go. If it’s not in the diary, it ain’t happenin’. I obviously use a smart phone but I cannot get on with using the calendar on my phone. I think when it’s in black and white and you can strike it off you have a sense of achievement- maybe that’s why? I don’t know. Either way I know that I have to use a diary every single year. I’ve been  ...

The Weekly Shop When Things Are A Bit Tight

There are very few people that every week, without fail, do their food shop and don’t have to worry about a single penny. I mean, some of us have weeks where we think ‘ah chuck it in the trolley., BUT it is far and few between for a lot of us. With the price of things going up, even the slightly more comfortable, are having to watch what they buy a little. Sometimes, yes, it is so they can afford their fifth holiday of the year but they are also, now more than ever, having to  ...

We Started Weaning Vol. 3 | Raising Evelyn

I never thought in a million years when I first wrote ‘We Started Weaning Vol.1‘ there would be a vol.2 or a vol.3, but life has a funny way of showing you who’s boss and how to test your patience, so here we are… Volume 3. Evelyn is Nearly 13 Months. Is she weaned yet… no she is not. In Vol.2 we were really struggling with Evelyn. She is a contrary little madam and her food intake is minimal still. I had flagged this up with Health Visitors at 7 months, 8  ...
