T’was The Night Before 7!

For the rest of the world tomorrow is New Year’s Eve; the end of one year and a time to celebrate the new. For us of course it’s the same, but it’s also our big girl’s birthday. And tomorrow she turns 7. I know everyone always says it but seriously, where does the time go? I think back to New Year’s Eve 2009 when I’d been days in labour contracting my way around East London, in and out of shops […]

Making Friends: How to Help your Child Find Perfect Pals and Avoid Bad Influences

  When our little ones start making friends for the first time, it can be a scary experience for us as well as our kids! How do you know if they’re making the kind of friend who will help them blossom or the kind that will lead them into mischief? Not only are our children starting school and facing a whole new environment, routine and way of learning, but they will be forming the friendships that will influence social interactions throughout […]

A Little Bit Of Luxe From 31Dover Plus 10% Discount For Youuuuuuuuuuu!

Christmas comes but once a year and while I love it, totally adore it in fact, I am thankful for the infrequency of such a celebration. I don’t know about you but I feel up to my flipping eyeballs with my ‘to do’ list and being nowhere near the bottom of it, with just a few days to go doesn’t fill me with the seasonal glow I usually have whilst we celebrate at my Mum’s and watch her doing all the […]

A Christmas Countdown!

I try really hard to write them every so often so that we can look back and remember what we were up to but the more time I leave it the more time seems to go on and I’ve decided I just have to bite the bullet and update with some pictures for posterity. The run up to Christmas […]

Rocknrolling With The New Ford KA+ – Review!

Driving the new Ford KA+ is what I’ve been doing for the past week and I have to tell you, it’s a lovely little motor. Ford approached me a few week’s ago and asked if I’d like to give their new nifty little 5 door member to the fleet a test drive and how could I resist? I’d never driven a brand new car before and having only driven an automatic since the day I passed my test I was eager to […]

It’s #CrackingValue At Poundland This Christmas – A Festive Table For Feasting!

I am an absolute sucker for a bargain but… Only if it’s a ‘good one’ and by that I mean quality over everything. I see no point in buying something that looks the part but which will fall apart tomorrow so my thrifty shopping doesn’t happen every day. However… I am a massive fan of Poundland and this Christmas they really have pushed the boat out when it comes to money saving AND quality! I have lost all snobbery when […]

#StyleTheSchoolRun And Give It Some Welly With Crocs!

In the summer I fell in love with Crocs. Not the original clog style shoes (although it has to be said when they first came out over a decade ago I DID have a pair) but with their other styles of which there are many, many, many! I loved all the jellies and flats and I’ve had a sneak peek at next summer’s styles which didn’t disappoint either. I absolutely adore this sparkly pair which is set to take summer […]
