I am a big cat person, I have had a cat in my family since I was born. So when Whiskas asked me if I knew why my cat purrs, I jumped at the chance to find out. I thought purring was just a sign of happiness. When I stroke Rocky, he purrs. I also heard stroking a cat is de-stressing, so not only comfort but health benefits from owning a cat. I am amazed at how much more there is to learn about a cats purr.
How beautiful is it to receive a handmade gift? Something that someone has spent hours making. When it comes to handmade gifts from the children, it’s even better. They have such creative minds, the sky is their limit. Handmade gifts are the perfect idea for a Mother’s Day present and Handmade at Amazon have made it really easy.
Yep, I have been watching a lot of friends this week, which obviously inspired the title. This is a post about what got me started on the blogging road and how this blog kicked off. I think it’s important to remember what inspired you to write in the first place and it also might be helpful if anyone is just starting off. So, what kicked it all off and led me down the path of a #MummyBlogger:

You guessed it, L.O.L Surprise! have kicked off the year with series 3: Confetti Pop. There are 9 new dolls to collect in a fabulous new designed ball, with a popping surprise element to it. It’s great fun, I love watching Isla’s face as she unravels the layers of these sell out toys.
Dogs are man’s best friend, but they don’t always make our life easier. Well-behaved dogs are a pleasure to have around, but badly-behaved dogs can be a real nightmare. We have a dog next door that constantly barks when the owners are out, it barks all day and evening. Sadly, humans cause most dog behavioural problems, so before you introduce a puppy to your family, check out the following common canine behavioral problems and find out how to avoid them.
As a vegetarian the most popular question I get asked is “What do you do for a Sunday roast dinner then?”. This is partly due to the fact I love Sunday roasts and also their horror that I might not be able to enjoy a Sunday roast! Of course I can. It’s my favourite meal of the week as we all sit around as a family. It has been a big learning curve testing what works well with roasted vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and gravy. So, here is a list of my favourites:
Once you have kids, your whole world revolves around them. Every last second of your day has to fit around them – not that we don’t love it, but it is sure nice when we do get the opportunity to make the most of quality adult time without the kids. Being a couple. By quality time, I don’t just mean the hour or two you have once the kids have gone up to bed with a glass of wine sat on the sofa in front of whatever drivel happens to be on television. Quite honestly, I’m just happy to turn Peppa Pig off for another day. What I mean is for one or two days without any parental responsibilities (well, as much as possible) with just the two of us.
Of all the things that people warned me of when I first announced I was pregnant, very few of them ended up breaking into the top ten of things I should have been prepared for. They mentioned sleepless nights, dirty nappies and sore breasts but these were to be expected with a newborn in the house.

It’s a juggling balance.
