Happily, if boredom does begin to strike there are some smart things you can do to beat it. Read on to find out what they are. Continue reading “Essential SAHM Boredom Beaters”

Looking For Writing Inspiration Abroad

*Collaborative Post

Writers know the continual difficulty of finding inspiration, thinking of new avenues for their work, and breaking through the usual creative blocks. To get through this, some alternate methods of success might be the best way forward. One of the best and most permanent methods of inspiration is heading abroad. Sometimes, you need to head outside of the box to think outside of the box.

Booking your plane tickets and planning the journey can be a great start, but if you’re not sure of how to find inspiration while there, you can often slip into recreation, simply drinking mojitos from morning to night and never really fulfilling the purpose of your original plan.

Consider the following simple methods of finding writing inspiration abroad for the best chances. Continue reading “Looking For Writing Inspiration Abroad”

Nursing Box Ideas To Keep Your Toddler Entertained

*Amazon Affiliate Links

Preparing to bring a new arrival home from hospital is an important task and one area I have been thinking about is something that will help to make Jake feel included and entertained whilst I am nursing his baby brother; a nursing box. This will be a special box that he can go to at any time for when he is feeling bored or possibly left out and will keep him happily occupied whilst I am otherwise engaged. I know he will have a good understanding at his age but it will all still be very strange and new to him and as he has been the only child for 4 years I want him to feel as though his needs are also being thought about.
