Relaxed

Hey readers,

My word of the week is:

Sometimes, if I am honest I can get overwhelmed before the half term as the prospect of having two boisterous children during the holidays fills me with dread. However, I have to say it hasn’t been too bad. The boys love playing together and not too many meltdowns. I have been relaxed and that makes a huge difference.

My eldest has made me his first ever cup of tea. He was so pleased because he has been so desperate to make me one. It was a lovely little surprise. Don’t worry he didn’t just do it himself but with assistance from his daddy. Then he was like I want to get a plain cup and he wanted to write with the sharpie pens ‘I love mummy and daddy’ and it was like an awwww moment, bless him!

Hope you have had a good week,

Problems only bigger boobed women will understand

Hey readers,

I have a confession to make I hate my breasts because I am a size DD and the right pain in the back and not the fact that buying bras is a breast ache and having to get a bloody loan out to pain for them.

Here are my reasons why big boobs suck!

Bra, High Heels, Red, Fashion, Female

1) They give you a backache and that kills, especially when you have to carry a child to bed in the evenings.

2) They are harder to the finder and then become more expensive.

3) No way would I suit a bralette, which is a shame as they are so God damn pretty.

3) I can’t run As the boobies bounce everywhere so I may as well kiss goodbye if I want to run after that bus and accept that I am going to be late ūüėČ

4) The prospect of going bra shopping sends you into a sweat and there is nothing worse than trying to find a size that actually fits you in a ‘normal’ shop.

5) You dream of having the funds for breast reduction.

6) The pain of a button shirt and constantly having a gap there. You can’t go out in public because you are scared your pop open.

Green, Grass, Laundry, Bra, Underwear

7) What do my toes look like?!

8) You thought it was bad enough until you get pregnant and then they grow some.

9) In the summer you have under breast sweat….joy!

10) I hate having to wear a swimsuit because it never fits right and has a major fear of my boobies pop out in the swimming baths.

11) Can never wear anything backlace.

12) Can’t wear low tops without looking like a s**t.

13) Never sleep on my stomach, I would never get any rest but pain.

14) I can never wear long necklaces because they make me feel self-conscious and worry they may go right in my cleavage.

Hey readers,

Christmas is nearly upon us and have you ever thought about looking at SportsDirect for presents, me neither until Mumsnet challenged me to get some gifts for £5.

pushchair £5

This will be a present for my youngest as he loves dolls. I want him to have a mix of toys and to know that he can play with whatever tickles his fancy.

Magic Pens Р£1

These magic pens are only a pound but they are perfect christmas stocking filler. My son loves quirky things and one of his favorite things to do is write. He spends a lot time at home writing or drawing. These are fun as they have a white pen that you can go over and transform the colours.

Notebook Р£1.99

As mentioned  above my eldest loves to write so he gets through a lot of notebooks. This is an A6, perfect size for taking out travelling on transport or even at a restaurant as we all kids gets bored very quickly. I like the size of the notebook as it can fit into my easy which appealed to me.

Grafix craft box Р£5

Firstly, what appealed to me about this gigantic box of craft is the price and the fact the brand is Grafix. I have previously bought stuff from Grafix and find it very good maker for children’s toys and activities.

I love the fact that the box has everything you need and is a perfect gift for them days you spend at home and need something to excite the child. The product gives you the ideas which makes my life as a parent much easier.

Raging bull game Р£5

This is a brilliant fun gift for all the family. I wanted because it was not to complicated in doing and was suited for a four and six year old. I have in the past got too easy or too hard type game but this is perfect for age and how long it takes for their needs.

Crayola stamp set Р£3

Currently half price and I find Crayola paint/ink really good for causing any nasty reactions and really quick wash. These are the kind of things I think about when I choose presents for children. It will be a brilliant children’s christmas present. What child doesn’t love a bit of stamping. I like things that are not too complicated as I have learnt it is much better way to be when you have smaller children.

Crayola doodle magic travel pack Р£5

This is such a fantastic idea. for start you can reuse it over and over again and use cloth to clean. It is doesn’t stain and keeps children entertained. It is excellent storage and kids love carrying things, making them feel more grown up. This will be super for a Christmas present as we will be travelling to relatives during the festive period. It can be used in the car when driving or at someone’s home to use.

When looking for presents are the Sports Direct it was amazing the variety of goods and some really good brands. You can get some cracking bargains and there is an assortment for all different age groups. I really like the diverse range of products and there is some real good inspiration when I was looking around.

As someone who is on a budget, I think Sports direct is a excellent place to visit. Obviously there are not just low budget items but that being said there is plenty to chose from if you don’t have bag fulls of money to spare.

Five activities that won't break the bank 

Hey readers,

Today I want to talk about things to do when you’re skint because that’s my situation right now. ¬†I thought this may be of use to parents who struggle to find cheap entertainment when you have lack of funds.

1. The first thing that I would suggest is the most obvious thing and that is just to take a ball, frisbee or anything that is suitable for the park It can be just the local Apr down the road  but it is still fun. Not to mention getting some fresh air and a break from the four walls of your home.

2. If you are bored, skint and at home then pick film. You can even find a ton of free films on YouTube. Such a easy activity  to kill a couple of hours especially when it is rainy or to stop the never ending.

3. If you are desperately needing to escape the Doom of mummy prison then I suggest get your wellies on and go out. Even if it is to just simply collect leaves, sticks and stones. All I can be fantastic material to paint with at home. It is free and a real winner in my home.

4. I love my library, it is such a fabulous service within the community. It is ¬†free to loan books and children’s audio books. There is free activities such as rhythmtime and story time – in the latter they provide ¬†free activities with all their materials such as paper and colouring in pens. It ¬†is a great day out for everyone and you’re learning, what more could you want?!

5. A classic activity to do when you’re skint is to get the board games out or jigsaws. You will be amazed at how much it can kill an hour or two and it us great bonding time. plus, it helps teach children patience and to share!

Is there anything I have not mentioned that is a real winner in your home that doesn’t break the bank?
Hope you have found this helpful and whatever you do I hope you have lots of fun.

My top seven frugal tips 

Hey readers,

I love a good bargain and trying to save money when I can. So, I thought I would share some of the things that really help reduce the cost of my spending.

1.Plan, set a Budget for a X amount and stick to it.

2. Go to the supermarket near closing time to get reduced items.

3.You can put your recipts to a good use by download Shopprize from an app store and scan your recipts. You then can over time exchange the coins into amazon vouchers. It doesn’t take that long either. Sadly the app only works on Android at the moment.

4.Wait until after an occasion to get knocked down prices, I.e. Halloween/Christmas etc.

5.Use mysupermarket.com as it is brilliant for comparing products and finding the cheapest place to go.

6.Take advantage of the advantage card. Tesco and Boots are my favourite and they are nice little earners.


7. Save 10p every say in a jar, it soon adds up after awhile.
