Our Morning Routine – No Frills, Plenty of Spills, Plus a Dash of Shouting!

Have you ever sat down and watched those YouTube videos that are solely dedicated to morning routines? I have and do you know how they made me feel? Well, quite frankly like shit! Sorry, but if people are truly getting up 2 hours before their kids, doing yoga, reading a book, having a bath, applying their makeup to a professional level and whipping up a healthy, nutritional breakfast for the children, then well done, I honestly don’t know how you do it AND keep it up… Being a parent myself for the last 5 years and knowing how utterly exhausting it is, I am not completely sure I believe a word of it!  Continue reading “Our Morning Routine – No Frills, Plenty of Spills, Plus a Dash of Shouting!”

Car Servicing- What Is Included?

*Collaborative Post

As a busy Mum of two, I often find myself dashing here and there in my car multiple times a day. It is my lifeline to the outside world. In our town, I would never be able to get everything done if I relied on walking or public transport and so I really value having a car. 

I must admit that I used to be dreadful at remembering to get my car checked or serviced but my husband is hot on this area and his efficiency has finally rubbed off on me too. After having several problems with cars in the past due to putting off simple tasks like a full service, I have learned how they will save you money in the long-run as well as help to keep my family safer.  Continue reading “Car Servicing- What Is Included?”

However, as soon as I stepped in the door I regretted and here is why… Continue reading “5 Things You Can Guarantee Will Happen At Soft Play”
