Halloween Murder Mystery – FREE TEMPLATE!

Halloween Murder Mystery – FREE TEMPLATE! When the kiddos asked me what we could do for Halloween in a semi locked down COVID Britain it was a bit of a conundrum. No trick or treating, no ordinary days out and certainly no Halloween party put us in a bit of a pickle but we LOVE to get dressed up, celebrate and decorate so we needed to think of something. Florence came up with the idea of doing a Murder Mystery […]

Secrets You Should Know About Writing Great Songs or How to Fish Downstream from Bob Dylan!

Secrets You Should Know About Writing Great Songs or How to Fish Downstream from Bob Dylan! Been a while since I lived up to the name of my blog but we are the rocknroller babies for a reason. When I met my husband he wasn’t a teacher wearing a shirt and tie (which is why I never iron them for him – false representation and all that) but a scruffy boy in a band! He still plays and sings and […]

Active Iron Pregnancy!

Active Iron Pregnancy! The need for iron supplements during pregnancy falls down to the fact your body will increase blood supply by 30-50%. The iron in your blood makes the hemoglobin, which carries oxygen to other cells in your body but research has shown women very often don’t, at the best of times, have a diet rich enough in iron to have sufficient funds to meet daily needs and when pregnant can have even less. You could need 30mg per […]

Colief Infant Drops!

Colief Infant Drops! I’ve used Colief products ever since Florence was a baby suffering with terrible colic and their Infant Drops basically saved us from the evening terror after my friends and even my Doctor’s recommendation to use them. Beginning nightly at about 11pm her discomfort continued until day break and began when she was about 2 weeks old – we didn’t know what was wrong but it was pretty harrowing watching my tiny baby look so unhappy. I spent […]

Raffie Is Three!

Raffie Is Three! How’d those three years go by so quickly then? I cannot believe my baby boy, the one we still call “the baby” (although probably not for long I guess) is actually three today and I want to wish him a very happy birthday on my blog as he is truly the good morning sunshine of it and of our family! He loves his brother and sister as much as they love him, is grumpy and happy and […]

Modern Ways to Improve Your Home’s Security

Modern Ways to Improve Your Home’s Security We had some pretty unpleasant experiences when we lived in a Victorian terraced house in London. The area, the East End, wasn’t perhaps the most salubrious of locations and on more than a couple of occasions people tried to break into our flat. It was a house converted into two and we had the upstairs, which might have made us feel a little more secure except our downstairs neighbour had a flat roof […]

Have A Motivated, Happy and Healthy Winter!

Have A Motivated, Happy and Healthy Winter! I don’t know about you but the winter makes me feel like hunkering down, wearing cosy knits and not worrying too much about exercise or healthy eating. After a while though it does make me feel rather sluggish and come the spring I’m always kicking myself about not working out harder and having a better diet. Obviously there’s a brief flurry in January, just after the excess of Christmas, but mainly I go […]

Colief Breathe Easy Vapour Rub!

Colief Breathe Easy Vapour Rub! We’ve had a weekend of the sniffles – inevitable after 6 months away from any germs and now being back at school so all three kiddos have a cold. The big two are great and capable of blowing their noses and expressing how they feel – Raffie, not so much! But there’s not that many products you can use to assist with a stuffy nose for someone so little and sleepless nights are on the […]
