We all know how important a good night’s sleep is. Being tired not only affects our mood and ability to deal with stress, but can also have a negative effect on our health. So it’s important that the WHOLE family get a good night’s sleep EVERY night, and not just our little people.
Father’s Day is fast approaching, and I don’t know about you but I always struggle for ideas. Not just for my dad, but also for James on behalf of the kids.
I like giving something homemade but that’s not always possible. So if I have to buy something I like to think outside the box, and find some unique and unusual gifts for Father’s Day. This is my round up of my favourite Father’s Day gift ideas with a twist!
The start of Spring marks the start of the horticultural show season. These are great traditional local community events to get involved in. No longer just for the retired, older population, but are fun for all the family and particularly the kids. Here are 10 Reasons Why We Should be Encouraging Our Children to Enter Horticultural Shows.
Who doesn’t love a holiday! As our kids get older, and we get braver about taking them further afield, I feel my passion for travel and adventure returning. We’ve been lucky in the last few years to have done quite a lot of travelling. We’ve had lots of fun in our caravan ‘Clarabelle’ and last year we took the kids on an aeroplane for the first time. More recently James took me to New York for my birthday which was an amazing holiday in more ways than one!
There is never enough time in the day is there? So when I heard about the BritMums Rustlers Burger Hacking Challenge, the promise of a quick fix for a family dinner appealed, and I wanted to get involved.
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean children should stay indoors. There are so many winter outdoor activities that kids can do, that there should be no excuse not to wrap up warm and get out there. I read somewhere that there was never inappropriate weather, just inappropriate clothing. So get on the wellies and waterproofs and get outside.
Autumn is officially here, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay indoors. I love the changing of the seasons, and love wrapping up warm and finding some outdoor Autumn activities to do with the kids. So if you’re stuck for ideas, here are a few of our favourite things to do when the leaves start to fall.
I honestly thought it might be easier second time round, but in truth it’s not. Harder even maybe. My youngest, my little baby boy starts Primary School tomorrow. The next milestone reached seemingly so quickly, and mummy can’t quite keep up. I’m as emotional tonight, maybe more so, as I was this time last year with his big sister starting.
