In the last year I have been very active in talking about my eco-changes, explaining how I want to improve the way we live in order to help our environment and trying to raise awareness via my blog and social media, however, this eco way of thinking isn’t something that is entirely new to me; I was once a very passionate child and saving the planet was all I dreamt of.

Unless you haven’t been following me for very long, you’ll know that we have just had the holiday of a lifetime in Florida (I may have mentioned it once or twice!) I’ve been on Instagram sharing my brilliant photos, I’ve popped some albums up on my personal Facebook page and I’ve even written a few blogs in the couple of weeks since coming home but there was something that wasn’t documented, there were things I didn’t want to take photos of and there were memories I am going to block out forever. Yes, my kids still acted like kids! Continue reading “Kids Will Be Kids, Even On Holiday!”
Of all the things we got up to whilst in Florida, one of my favourite days was our visit to Clearwater Marine Aquarium. This is not your typical aquarium, which, for me, is perfect because I really am not a fan of animals and creatures being kept in captivity. The Clearwater Marine Aquarium is a rescue centre and has taken in thousands of Continue reading “Visiting Clearwater Marine Aquarium”
This is a post I have been meaning to write for so long now. Having had an emergency c-section with my first child and a VBAC with my second, I wanted to get down in the blog the differences and how I felt about them both and why.
Now, I have covered both stories in previous posts. Jake was born via an emergency c-section on Christmas Day and you can read all about that birth story here. William was born 8 weeks early Continue reading “C-Section Versus VBAC”
Disney World is a place that had been on my wishlist since I was about 5 years old. I remember begging my Dad to take me and dreaming of seeing Cinderella’s castle in real life. However, with Orlando being so far from us and the costs involved, it just never happened. So, when my husband announced that he had a work conference in Florida coming up we jumped at the chance of making it a family holiday too… and of course, planned Disney World into our second week! Continue reading “What We Learnt From Being First-Timers At Disney World”
Getting beach ready can feel very different once you become a Mum, can’t it? I mean pre-kids it was all about the skimpy bikini, exfoliating, waxing, painting your toenails but these days it’s more about getting the right fit, making sure those boobs stay in place, finding something that won’t cut into those wobbly bits and most definitely getting a swimsuit that will last.
With my holiday coming up I was wondering what type of swimwear to go for so when UK Swimwear contacted me to review Continue reading “Review: Getting Beach Ready With UK Swimwear”
I’ve not had any experience with Primary Schools since I was in one myself which, er, is a while back now! So, when Jake started last September I hadn’t really thought about how much they would have changed. I knew that their equipment would be better, that their knowledge of how children learn would be far improved, that the school dinners would be much healthier and the trips would be more interesting but one area I hadn’t banked on was homework.
