Superhuman Super Parents-All For One and One For All

You guys know me by now-you know I’m all for female solidarity-girls and women being there for each other, in a world that is unfortunately still dominated by the opposite sex.

However, I’m also very much into advocating parental solidarity-parents being there for other parents-without judgement, bringing only positivity, advice, help and, well, just being there for each other (regardless of sex). Continue reading

Surviving Your Child’s First School Trip

Look, a small disclaimer before we start-I know I may be in the minority with this one-but I really struggle with my boy going off to school trips on his own without me-I always have, and I reckon I always will.
This became most apparent when I found out last term that my Son’s school were taking him to London for the day this month to see a show.

Oscar’s Adventures in the Online World-Internet Safety Book

Internet safety is something that is really important to me-especially in the digital technological age we find ourselves in now.

When I was a child, we didn’t have as many ways of getting “online”-and by the time the dial up had even connected us to the internet, there really wasn’t much chance of anything else really happening. Continue reading

The Story Of Us-On My Husband’s Birthday

Today is the 28th of January-which is also known as my Husband’s Birthday-his 32nd this year!

When prepping my work for this month, and getting his presents and Birthday plans sorted, I realised I’ve never used my website to tell the story of us (me and Hubs, not you and I dear reader).

So, what better day to tell it, than on the day we celebrate another year of his life!

Making every journey safe-tyre safety with Jet Wheel Tyres

I’m sure I don’t need to write a whole new blog post on the laws surrounding tyre treads and when you need to replace tyres on your car.

However, I have come to realise in the last month, following an accident we had while my husband was driving us home on Christmas Day evening, that the gap between a tyre being worn but legal to drive on, and worn to the point of it being illegal, is really very slim.

In actual fact, a legal tyre that you may think is a little worn, might not always be safe to drive on at all!

Courier and delivery companies-when will they get it right?

Last week, I popped a little rant up on my Instagram after I’d had a couple of issues with DPD (courier service).  DPD who claim to be parcel experts had already irritated me with the attempted delivery of a parcel from a company I was reviewing products for, with an “attempted delivery” the week before.  Apparently, I hadn’t been in at the time of delivery, so they left it in my porch, and popped a card through the door.  Unfortunately, there was no card in my door-as I was in at the time, oh, and I don’t even have a porch.

Simply Beach – Swimwear for my future (fitter) body

So, as some of you will know if you’ve read my post about the new Gym I’ve become a member of (you can read it here). 

 

Right now, I’m a size 12-14 (closer to a 14), and, although I don’t class myself as overweight, I don’t yet have the confidence to wear a swimsuit in public, let alone a bikini! Continue reading

What Are Your Favourite Christmas Songs?

So now we’re in December, we can fully enjoy the festive music and dig out the back catalogue of Christmas songs on dusty CD’s (or via spotify/google music/iMusic, which ever takes your fancy).

 

My favourite Christmas song, is definitely Little Drummer Boy-obviously partly because of David Bowie, but also because Bing Crosby really reminds me of my Grandfather.  He doesn’t look like him or even sound like him, something just reminds me of him-maybe its a generational thing.

 

I asked some of my blogger friends their favourite Christmas Songs.
