Hey readers,

My word of the week is:


because my son this weekend went to his first ever scout camp. We were a bit apprehensive as my son is autistic and we weren’t sure how he would respond. Luckily my husband is a volunteer so he stays with him so he doesn’t have a sudden breakdown. That helped a great deal. He did struggle in the evening and the following day. However hubby took him aside to talk it though.

The good news is he did enjoy the camp and he is really looking forward to the next one. However, Monday he was mentally drained from it, so we had to take it really slow with him. Still, for us it is positive he stuck it out and enjoyed himself.

He loved the food from camp as well, I can’t believe how much he ate and even tried the jacket potato though previously he would be against it.

Hope you have had a good week.

My five faviourite kids activities

Hey readers,

Sometimes I put so much pressure on myself to be this perfect mummy and then what happens is that I don’t enjoy this rubbish facade I pretended to be that I was so miserable. However, one thing I did learn is that you don’t have to go overboard with your children, sometimes the simplest things are the best. Here are my five favorite things to do with kids.


You can not go wrong with simply coloring in with pens or crayons. Or just getting some plain paper and drawing random shapes. My eldest particular loves this because he finds it calming and so do I.

Straw blowing

A fantastic and cheap activity to do that doesn’t cause any mess is getting a straw and a little ball and blowing it to one another across the table. It is great because the boys see it as a game and I don’t have to think so much which is always a winner in my eyes.

Reading books

My boys love books and there educational too. You don’t even have to spend tons of money, go to the library let them pick a book or two. They will feel good because they can feel or grow up because it is there choice. Reading together is great bonding time and also helps with communication, win-win.


Walking pillows

A fun game that both boys love playing and actually spend a long time on is getting all the pillows on the floor and just let run or jump. They love playing together with races and it is so easy to do.

Pasta threading

Get some pasta and some threat and thread the pasta throw. Very simple activity but great for helping with fine motor skills and coordination.

What simple activities help you to keep your little ones entertained?

Hey readers,

My word of the week is

because it has been coughs all round in my home and snot running down the face. I have struggled to function other then to think about sleep. Therefore, spending a lot for time at home and not doing much. Which I don’t mind as I am exhausted anyways!

In other news the car’s bumper needed changing as someone bumped into it by accident. So, that has taken some work, joy!

At least normal rountine has resumed and though my youngest has had three days off from nursery due to a boiler breaking down, it feels good to be back to normal. It has been lovely also to see the sunshine.

Hope you have had a good week.

Mother’s day 2018 inspiration.

Hey readers,

On the 10th March is Mother’s day and I bet you are here to look for some inspiration. Let me tell you some ideas that are a bit different and get inspired to share the love for your mum.

Firstly, if your looking for something humous or personalised then why not take a look at getting personalised t-shirts from personlised t-shirts.

They are flexible you just tell them the design that you want on the t-shirt and they will do the rest of the work for you. They are super quick with delivery between 2-4 days so no need to sweat about the time.

I think this is such cute present to hang up in a family home and it is a personalised family portrait picture form Not On The High Street. 


How about going retro with this rose gold glitter lava lamp to add some glamour to your mama’s home.

Alternatively, why don’t you give this tornado ice mould and glass set a whirl and make your ice the shape of a tornado.

Finally, just for giggles instead of slushy mummy card check out this funny Freddie Mercury inspired card from Etsy,


Whatever you do I hope you have a lovely Mother’s day!

Why playgrounds are ace

Hey readers,


If you are a parent you would have experienced taking your child to the playground. I think they are brilliant resource for everyone to use and here is why.

They get you out the house and get you away from the four walls or watching too much tv.

Playgrounds are a great way of getting a change of scenery and be surrounded by green. Sometimes, just getting away from the same places is a blessing in disguise.

If there is one thing I love more then anything in the world as a parent is finding fun things to do with my child that are free because let’s face it children come with a bloody big price tag, especially when they hit school. So, if I can save some money somewhere then going to the playground is one. Plus it helps with keeping children entertained and stop complaining for awhile that they are a bored.

Playgrounds are great for exercise, playing chase, walking or even pushing a child on the swing all contributes to keeping you active.

Going to the playground allows you to blow some cobwebs of and get some much needed fresh  air. It also provides a mental boost, and helps clear your head. It really is amazing such a small and simple activity can have a huge impact on making you feel less crap and giving you the change to think more clearer.

Visiting a playground outdoors gives the child the opportunity to get vitamin D from being out in the fresh air and  help build strength in their bones.

Playground, Play, Children, Adventure

Playgrounds encourage free play, where the child decides what they want to do, they can even make up their own games or use their imagination on the playground apparatus. This next  point coincides with the above one in the fact that a  child can test out there communional skills with socialising with other children at the playground. Therefore possibility  of working together to establish what they want to do. There is also the positive effect of finding a person to share the enjoyment of play with someone who has similar interests in what they like to do in the playground.

Therefore I conclude that playgrounds are ACE!

Hey readers,

My word of the week is:

because I seem to be trying to remember so many dates/ appointments. Then I have to try to remember all these names that my eldest keeps telling me out. no ever tells you when you are pregnant that you have to have a good memory.

My diary is so valuable to be right night, if I didn’t have that I would’ve gone crazy.

If the letters for things aren’t enough at school it is the constant party invites, jee weez it is none stop go.

Why is the week so long by but seem to go really fast, I cannot believe we are in October already. I wish people would stop talking about Christmas, I am pooing myself thinking about how I am going to pay for it. I don’t need this stress in October.
Hope you have had a good week!
