If #TheMMLinky 

By | February 19, 2018

I have to admit, I struggled a bit thinking of what I could write for today. It’s been a full-on half term and my head is full of potential posts but just haven’t had the time to pop anything down – apart from a very brief list. D has had some anxieties around returning to […]

Getting that crowning glory feeling back with The Harley Street Hair Clinic 

By | February 12, 2018

Our hair, it can make or break our confidence, can’t it? However fab you might feel in an outfit, a “bad hair day” can completely destroy self-esteem and bring us down. It’s one of the first things I notice about people, their hair, coming after a friendly smile and their eyes. Sometimes our hair needs […]

The 1p Saving Challenge #TheMMLinky

By | February 12, 2018

There are always tips and “hacks” appearing in my FB feed, some I scroll on past but this one looked a good, motivational one to try and there’s the prospect of a few pounds to help with the Christmas bills too.    The idea behind this is that you put aside a set amount each […]

The BritMums Rustlers Burger Hacking Challenge 

By | February 11, 2018

Life is busy isn’t it? We have evenings here where it’s after school clubs, then a quick turnaround at home before a parents evening, meeting or training.  Weekends can be just the same with a quick “hello, we won/lost/drew (preferably one of the first two!)” before it’s away to an other part of the county.

By | February 11, 2018

We moved into our home nearly (gosh) 14 years ago and saw it as a family home, a place where our (then, unborn daughter and 18 month old and 10 year old sons) children could grow up, away from the traffic and hustle and bustle of our previous mid-terrace, little house in the town centre. […]

Be You, Be True #TheMMLinky

By | February 5, 2018

Sometimes I wish I was a “hello, it’s me daaaarling!” jazz-hands type of woman, it would make life easier when it came to getting my views across.  At other times, I’m very glad I’m me, doing my best I can for my family, just getting by. I very occasionally take pictures with me in them, […]

Bye bye January – PDA, RBH and more 

By | February 3, 2018

I’m not disappointed to wave goodbye to January 2018, it’s been a long and really quite stressful month. A month in which we’ve had more contact with T’s secondary mainstream school than I can remember, a month in which I’ve felt both disappointed in them and then, two days ago relieved. It’s also been a […]
