Brick History

Brick History at The Historic Dockyard, Chatham

We were kindly gifted tickets to attend the new Brick History exhibition at The Historic Dockyard in Chatham last Sunday. 
To say we jumped at the opportunity, would be an understatement-aside from the warships and many other exhibits at the Dockyard, my children (and myself) are huge Lego fans, and we just knew it would be worth the trip up there!

Coming off of the contraceptive pill after 13 years

So, most of you know already that my Husband and I decided that two children was enough for us-especially after losing three babies between our two children.  Aside from the fact, I personally just couldn’t deal with the grieving and heartache that miscarriage brings with it physically and mentally, our second child wasn’t as easy going as our first, and we knew two was plenty with chalk and cheesE as our kids!

Reroom-Interior Design-Mermaid & Space accessories

Recently, I received a press release from a company called Reroom.  I always have a little mooch on the press releases, but never really respond to interior design/home interior releases, because I haven’t really covered that kind of genre on my website before.

It occured to me however, that before I wrote about most of the topics I cover, I hadn’t written about them before-each genre and subject has to start somewhere, and I realised Reroom were the perfect company to start with.

The Day I Realised I’m Not Ready To Be Alone

A couple of weeks ago,  saw the panicked posts and messages between anxious parents, waiting on their child’s school admission emails.

I was one of those parents-eagerly awaiting an email to tell me my Daughter had got into our only choice school-her Brother’s current school.  We kind of knew it was a done deal, but as the minutes/hours ticked by, doubt crept in-what if we were really that unlucky and we didn’t get her in!

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.

Early Learning Books from It’s Your Story

We were really lucky to have been sent this beautiful bundle of early learning books from It’s Your Story.

Learning at home, is something that always has been really important to me-although we’re not a Home Education family-my children both attend school and nursery, I still like to support their learning at home. Continue reading

Caidr-Self help advice at your fingertips

Is it only me that worries when their child is unwell, not only about what they could have and how I could help, but also about wasting doctors time!

I’m such a worry wort, I concern myself that if I keep going to the doctors surgery, they’ll start to think I’m crazy and not take anything seriously!

I’m always Googling (I know I shouldn’t), so when I found out about Caidr, a new app which enables you to check symptoms, Google took a back seat!
