January photo challenge 2020: my favourite photos

Well, January is over (almost) and it has gone quite quickly considering. It helps when you have a super busy lifestyle. I have loved seeing all of the 475th day of January posts. I thought I would recap the January photo challenge 2020 with my favourite photos from all that took part in #mummyphotoaday. VIEW the POST

Get out and get walking #mindfulness

Get out and get walking #mindfulness

I am not very good at New Years resolutions, I tend to just think about what I would like to do that year and try my best. Walking is my thing. I worked on it last year and did a lot more walking than the year before. I want to make sure I do more of it in 2020. Mindfulness is another topic I am keen to explore more this year - finding ways to keep my mind healthy. Walking is definitely good for that too. VIEW the POST

Home maintenance & repair tips for Winter

Now that we’re coming into the cold and dark period things get a little tougher in many ways. The kids are not able to play outside as much, we are more likely to get depressed and bored, putting on weight as we’re not active enough. Winter can be a bit of a drag. So when we consider that it’s also the time of year when home repairs are most common and costly then it fast becomes some peoples least favourite season. But if we know what we are doing we can prepare and react quickly to the trials of winter when it comes to homeownership. Follow these essential home maintenance hints and tips to get the best out of your home during the coldest of all the seasons.

How to transform your child’s bedroom into a cosy snug for winter

As soon as the temperature drops, the wind becomes bitterly cold and a layer of ice covers the ground, there is nothing better than getting into a nice warm, cosy house. This is why you also want to ensure your little one’s room is a cosy snug space, so they find comfort in there on dark, dreary days.  VIEW the POST

2019 photo challenge February day 16

2019 photo challenge February day 16

Today's keyword for the #mummyphotoaday photo challenge, February day 16, is "heart". My #heart is all over this weather at the moment... the sunny, cold, days are lovely. I’ve found lots of new places to walk the dogs too and that makes me feel very happy! I can’t wait to explore a little more of the new area we live with the kiddies! Wrapping up with a hat and scarf too... perfecto. #mummyphotoaday VIEW the POST

2019 photo challenge February day 15

Today’s keyword for the #mummyphotoaday photo challenge, February day 15, is “together”. We had a night without the kiddies last night. First time in months. Possibly years. It felt completely bizarre waking up without them today. It’s funny how you desperately yearn for a break, just to sit and drink your tea whilst it’s hot (without the kids bickering around your feet). But once you get it, it just doesn’t feel right not being #together. I love this crazy faced boy. He’s really starting to grow up and challenge behaviours now. Albeit he doesn’t question his own. I have to make sure he stops bullying his sister, keep the tantrums to a minimum but maintain his happy and loving personality. Hmmmmmm…. how do I do that?! #mummyphotoaday
