Did you know it is World Stationery Day in a couple of weeks, 25th April 2018? To celebrate I thought it was only fair to share my favourite stationery and tips for making the perfect list. Lists to some are what nightmares are made of, but if you do it properly they can be your best friend. There are a lot of reasons for doing lists, not just to be organised, but also to help focus your mind. Doing something that is brain friendly has got to be the right, hasn’t it? I so often go to write Brian friendly. Maybe that’s what we should name it…
I loved the little snippet of Italy we got on our holiday a couple of years ago, it really wet my appetite for the good foods and sights. One of my holiday goals is to rent a home in Italy and explore the countryside, beaches and as many sights as we can. So here is my list of the top 10 family-friendly things to do when we get to visit the wonderful Country, that’s shaped like a boot…
I thought it was about time I started sharing some of my tips on how I keep organised with my work and my hobbies. Both at work and at home, I use Trello – it can used in a browser or on an app. I have it on my iPhone, iPad and work computer using the browser. It is so easy to use and updates in real time, so you can flip between devices quickly.
This is the top five Christmas adverts of 2016, in my opinion. With the release of so many interesting and funny, cute and emotional videos from some amazing brands out there I thought I’d put my top five together. My favourite has to be #BusterTheBoxer, mainly because the advert just makes me feel happy and it’s all about family. I love the anticipation throughout, the way the story is told and just the look on Buster’s face when he finally gets to bounce at the end. Made me smile from ear to ear. I also now want to film my trampoline throughout the year incase we have resident wild animals that enjoy a bounce whilst we are fast asleep.
Looking for a new home is an exciting activity for families, well depending on your family of course. Some even make a trip for it. Looking at different neighbourhoods and dream houses and imagining the design and furniture to put in each room make a bond that each will definitely enjoy. But there are important details people tend to overlook because of the excitement. So here we have created a family checklist to guide you when you make the big leap into buying a new house.
Something that I plan to do every year and fail to do every year is hold some money back to hit the January sales. You can buy so many good things in the sales. Things for yourself, the home and family – after Christmas treats for the kids from the toy sections or stocking up on gifts for birthdays throughout the year and oh yes, next Christmas. This year I have a plan though and I wanted to share it with you.
The usual sounds of an English campsite: air pumps filling up the inflatable mattresses, small children giggling, screaming and crying (the crying is normally our children). As I sit here in the campsite, the sun is setting, I started to think about the essentials and wondered what my essential and top tips for other families would be. Before I knew it, I had a list:
I recently ran a competition with the lovely Debenhams for bloggers, the task was to compile Xmas lists for Santa and write a blog post on their choices. The winning prize is a £300 voucher for Debenhams and four runners up prizes which each win a £50 Debenhams voucher.
It may seem very early to be thinking about Christmas, but the key to good child care is often forward planning, which will allow you to get the best for your kids. The last-minute rush to complete Christmas shopping is often desperately hectic, with millions of shoppers on the streets nationwide, and the price of children’s gifts soars as peak season approaches. The stress of the last-minute rush can exhaust you and damage your parenting. Get organised early not only with home-made presents, but even with these great gift ideas.

A list? I hear you ask, I’ll explain… Firstly you need to create your account on the great website: www.babyhuddle.com After you have sorted your profile, adding images and other special details about yourself and your babies, you need to create a list.

Its a fabulous website and a great way to share information about products, quickly […]
