đŸ’» Guess who’s got a đ—±đ—Č𝗮𝗿đ—Čđ—Č? Oh yes, that is me. Over 3 years of hard work has led me to this and I feel so proud of myself. Starting a degree during Covid and homeschooling children and working is just insane when I think back.⁣
⁣
All that study time means I have a BSc Hons in đ— đ—źđ—»đ—źđ—Žđ—Čđ—șđ—Čđ—»đ˜ đ—Łđ—żđ—źđ—°đ˜đ—¶đ—°đ—Č. I love that this is a universal degree, it means I can use it whatever my future holds. ⁣
⁣
As it’s an apprenticeship, through my employer, I still have some work to do to finish off. But my certificate is en route
 the hard work is done. I wouldn’t have been able to do this if it wasn’t for my employer giving me time to study and Hubby for giving me the space to work into the evenings and weekends. It’s a lot of time. And I will be forever grateful. ⁣
⁣
I love learning and it’s something I’ve always wanted to do, as I left uni at 20 without my 𝗟𝗼𝘄 degree. It was my biggest regret leaving so close to the end. But I’ve done it now and that’s the main thing. ⁣

Rambo was terrified of them, he would shake and not eat for days around this time of year. I often made him a den somewhere, so he could hide. It’s not nice seeing your đ—łđ˜‚đ—żđ—Żđ—źđ—Żđ—¶đ—Č𝘀 go through that. So we’ve never really embraced this occasion by going to a firework event. ⁣

Instead we sit and watch them from the glass windows, where we’re warm and safe. I raised a glass of đ—łđ—¶đ˜‡đ˜‡ to my furbabies up in heaven tonight. The night sky was deep blue and clear so I could see the beautiful stars inbetween the fireworks. ⁣

We’ve been swimming, for a đ˜„đ—źđ—»đ—±đ—Č𝗿 around the site and we are busy planning the rest of our half term. ⁣

We’ve never stayed in the south of Devon before, so we’re looking forward to exploring and finding new places. Ps it took us 6 hours to 𝘁𝗿𝗼𝘃đ—Čđ—č down here! I’m hoping the trip home is a bit quicker

Making time for your relationship after kids

Making time for your relationship after kids

Parenthood is hard. There is no parent out there that will say it’s easy because it takes so much from you. I'll start off by saying they don't just take, those children of yours, but when you spend your whole life being you, it’s hard to give up some of you to be mum and dad. It then ends up that you become only mum and dad for a while, forgetting that before your cherubs came along, you were husband and wife. You had fun and romance and a lot of love for eachother, and while that love hasn't changed, you certainly do things differently now. You need to think about how you can keep the relationship alive while you navigate feeds, nappies and endless sleepless nights. VIEW the POST

Is a joint life insurance policy better than individual ones?

Is a joint life insurance policy better than individual ones?

This is a guest post by FCA registered brokerage; Reassured. Joint life insurance is a policy taken out by a couple, which protects both parties simultaneously. You pay one monthly premium, there’s a single policy document and the terms and conditions cover both named parties. But is joint life insurance cover always the best option? From our experience, those in long-term relationships, often choose joint life insurance without considering the alternatives. After all, they probably already share the household bills, a bank account and/or a mortgage with their partner. VIEW the POST

The biggest exercise of all: getting your partner to work out!

We all know the importance of keeping healthy, yet some of us need a little bit more motivation to do it than others, mainly our partners! For me it’s the other way around as Hubby is brilliant at keeping fit and he has to motivate me. Quite often! Sometimes it can be a bit annoying that they can’t do anything to look after their weight, or are just making sure that they are looking after themselves a little bit more than they actually are. But, rather than spending hours upon hours begging them, or guilting them into exercise, this isn’t going to result in them getting up off the couch. So what are the best ways to do it?
