Mum's Birthday

Mum’s Birthday Gift Guide – Mayflower Blogs

July is so ridiculously busy with Birthdays filling the majority of the month.  I’m usually a dab hand at choosing gifts, but I’m starting to have less and less time to find unique gifts, and I know others are too.
I decided to help you all (and myself), by putting together a handy gift guide with some fab idea for your Mum/Mother In Law/Step Mum etc….

One Year….Changing Schools and Changing Lives

Some of you may already know the story (or some of it), of why and how we ended up moving Kye, mid-term from his last school to his current one.
Most however, don’t know the full story, and I have rarely told it.
I couldn’t tell you what stopped me really-I think it was a mixture of things; not wanting to rock the boat; I know people who’s children still attend the previous school-and I know there’s a loyalty there.  I also think a lot of my reasoning, was sheer stubbornness-I didn’t think I needed to share our reasons for changing something so huge in our Son’s life, because we knew we were doing the right thing for him-and no explanation was needed for that.

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!

Botley

Botley – The Coding Robot – From Learning Resources

I’m starting to think I’m a little addicted to the Learning Resources online shop at the moment-especially for home education learning activities and products for my children.  I don’t home educate-they both attend nursery and school-but I like to co-educate I suppose you’d call it, by teaching them things they learn at school at home too!

One of the subjects I haven’t done much of yet, is coding-my Son who is 8, has done a fair bit, but my daughter had zero idea of what it even was.

We were super lucky to receive Botley-a coding robot from the lovelies at Learning Resources, which has enabled me to not only teach my son further coding tricks, but has also allowed him to teach his little sister how to do it!

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
