You may remember at the end of January I had an incredible #FeelFresh experience in London, thanks to Lights by TENA. They pulled out all the stops to make sure we had a day “feeling fresh” and learning how to make our own fragrance. It was a really great day and I got to meet some lovely bloggers. It was nice to take a day out and try something new: with a glass of champagne in my hand most of the day.

This is a great recipe for a grown up alternative! The kiddies had chocolate spread, banana and also a little strawberry sauce. Mummy’s favourite is lemon and sugar. Daddy loves Bailey’s and I thought this recipe would be right up his street – especially with the added banana’s and walnuts. This is a fantastic recipe for any dessert, a great one to show off if you are hosting too.
On February 3, 2017, I went in to hospital for a Colposcopy and came out with having the LLETZ treatment. You can read about the procedure and treatment here. I received the results this week and I have to say, I didn’t realise I was worrying but the good news felt like a house had been lifted from my shoulders. Below is a little account of the infection symptoms and what my results mean if anyone would like to know…
Recently when I have been getting “agitated” with the children’s behaviour: the squabbling, bickering and arguing over stupid things, it got me thinking about questioning them. For example the power of “why” is incredible, usually they give me sensible and thoughtful answers. Not childish answers, which surprised me a great deal. There are 5 magic words that will help you with this: why, where, what, when and how!
As you may have seen on Instagram recently I have been through a bit of a rollercoaster and learnt so much on this journey. I know it’s not the “nicest” topic to talk about but I would like to help others understand what happens, what symptoms to look out for and most importantly: NEVER MISS A SMEAR TEST!
We all know that certain vitamins, minerals and nutrients are good for us. Most of us get the majority of these nutrients through a healthy, balanced diet. However, you can also supplement some of these nutrients in order to make you look and feel your best if your diet seems to be falling short.
This post is basically a big “tip” for those of you that struggle to get out of the house in the morning, whether that is for work or the school run in-between. I have been struggling for months in a cycle that literally started off my day in a frustrated, built up way that effected the rest of the day to come. I am pretty sure the children really didn’t like it either. I made one change, to begin with and it changed my entire mood.
This is an advertorial post with Quaker Oats. Quaker Oats recently sent us some fabulous oats, some of which had been all the way to space and back. We love porridge for breakfast, you can do a lot with it too. Like adding fruit or baking the oats to make breakfast flapjacks. One thing I love doing at the moment is making overnight oats, they are so easy to make and they taste gorgeous straight from the fridge. Perfect for the dash to work or before the school run.
Yes it is the New Year and just because it is January, the guilt over our consumption of so many mince pies will kick in. Not just mince pies either, I have eaten my body weight in puff pastry over the past few weeks with Hubby’s mushroom and stilton wellington. Delicious! I guess we are all concentrating on how we are going to burn off those extra calories. But, while we’re busy working up a sweat, there’s one area that 61 per cent of us will forget to exercise – our pelvic floor!
It is that time of year when you want meals that fuel your body with warmth, like central heating. That is exactly what this vegetarian cottage pie did for us at dinner time last night. Daddy came home to the waft of dinner swirling it’s aroma around the house and it tasted delicious to boot. It reminded me of when I was a child and my Mumma used to make meals like this.
