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  ...

Cybex Sirona S i-Size Car Seat | Raising Evelyn

A few weeks ago Evelyn was diagnosed with severe Hypermobility. Being hypermobile basically means your joints are more flexible than others. Evelyn has had a lot of pain with hers and now is on a waiting list for 6 months of Physiotherapy. We have lots of exercises that we are currently doing with her to help her gain strength but as soon as she is old enough we have been advised to enroll her in Ballet and Gymnastics and the such like. However, Rugby and Trampolining are a definite no no  ...

I Have a 1 Year Old | Raising Evelyn

I am shocked. I can not understand how my diddy little sass ball is 1! Everyone tells you it goes by so fast and you don’t realise how quick until it’s happening and you can’t keep up with the speed. Evelyn is such a tiny sausage and still fits into her 6-9 month old clothes. She weighs only 17lbs 10oz and is the sassiest, cheekiest little girl I know. A few weeks ago Evelyn was diagnosed with extreme hyper mobility and we were told to prepare for a lot of dislocations,  ...

Valentines Day Gift Ideas

I am not a Valentine’s day fan. Don’t get me wrong I like a card of acknowledgement (lol) but I am not one for the over exaggerated ideas of ridiculous displays of love- giving or receiving. It’s false and forced. It is like when you are in a relationship and one says to the other “Tell me you love me” and the other one does but neither feel it. It is fake… it it totally fake. That aside, there is a hell of a lot of you that love it and want to be given  ...

Redesigning the House | St Josephs Interiors

Time. The oxford dictionary defines it as ‘the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present and future regarded as a whole’, yet the Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary defines it as ‘the measured or measurable period during which an action, process or condition exists or continues’. However you describe it… I have none. Working full time, raising children, keep the house clean and tidy with dinners on the table, taking a child to all  ...

Glossybox ‘It’s All About Love’ Edition | February 2019

Well January went by in a blink of an eye. For me it was the most un-Januaryist January of my life. and here we are, the first week in February already. Life is passing me by here and scaring the crap out of me! I have a 1 year old this month god damn it! A new month means…. a new box. January’s Glossybox sold out so incredibly quick I don’t think even any influencer’s got a look in, which is obviously incredible but it was sorely missed. However, February’s  ...
