National Citizen Service for Year 11 teens for Summer 2018 

By | April 24, 2018

Being a parent to two teenagers (a son of 15 and a daughter of 13, both with autism), I cannot help but worry about the world that they are growing up in, not just from an additional needs viewpoint but also with regard to the multiple stabbings in London so far this year. We live in […]

Safety Tips When Using A Moses Basket For Your Baby 

By | April 16, 2018

 Parents-to-be will inevitably face this question when choosing a bed for their new born baby: should they get a crib, carrycot, baby cot, bassinet, or a Moses basket? Many decide to go for a Moses basket because they offer a cosy alternative to the large cot, helping create a reassuring and enveloping space for their […]

The wonky feet saga 

By | March 7, 2018

Its a strange feeling, knowing that this time in six weeks I’ll (hopefully) be at home, recovering from what should be my last operation on my feet, affectionately known as #scarfeet on the blog. Trying to imagine how things will look under the bandages and hoping that I’ll have “a matching pair” of feet, to […]

Beyond the sunset 

By | March 6, 2018

I was watching “Hold The Sunset” last night, followed by “Call The Midwife” (I know…party animal! Spoiler alert for the latter, you’ll need tissues) and the first programme in particular got me thinking, thinking about Senior Dating and whether I’d want to search for love/companionship if I became widowed or whether Hubbie would, if I was no […]

The positives of online dating 

By | March 4, 2018

When a relationship breaks down, for whatever reason, there’s usually a period of grief or disbelief as to the fact that you’re single or maybe anger that the time spent in that relationship has ended.  For women there is also the feeling that that internal biological clock might be ticking, men have it a lot […]

What would renewing our vows mean to me?

By | March 3, 2018

It seems quite a fashionable thing to do amongst celebs, doesn’t it? Come the warmer months, you can guarantee a smattering of high profile vows renewals, covering a few pages of the weekly magazines, airbrushing and all.   It’s something I’d like to do – apart from the magazine coverage bit, obviously, they wouldn’t be […]

If I were a driver 

By | February 28, 2018

This is a Sponsored Post. We are fortunate to live where we do. It’s five minutes walk to bus stops where I can either catch a bus to our local shops (albeit a half hour ride as it goes everywhere before getting there) or a bus to the large town near us, a small train […]

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 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.

Bringing the outside in with Bifold Doors 

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. […]
