    The Merry Hill pub and grill Wolverhampton: review

    We were very kindly gifted a family meal for free at the Merry Hill pub and grill in Wolverhampton. In return for an honest review . All opinions are my own. On entering the pub I will say I was a little concerned with how our experience was going to be. As many of the windows to the main door and enternace area had been smashed. It didn’t fill me with confidence that this was a pub that I would want to take my family to. However we did go in as we thought we would give the pub the benefit of the doubt. As this may of been something…

    February favourites 2019- Things I have been loving this month.

    Febuaury has just gone past in a blink of an eye. For us it’s been a busy month trying to get all things sorted for the sale of our house. Also we are buying a house so we are having to sort a lot of paper work and we seem to be working to certain dates to have things in by. So I feel like the month has just flown by working towards these dates. Although this month has gone quickly there a few things I have been loving this month. They are a little random and maybe not necessarily things you would expect to see in this sort of…

    Moving up the property ladder and buying our forever home

    I have been wanting to write this post for a few weeks now but if I’m being honest I have been a little scared. If you have been reading my blog for the last year you would know that we haven’t really had the best of luck with selling our house. We have had two buyers pull out. Really cheeky people asking if we could leave most of the contents of our house. Along with a horrible time with Purple Bricks estate agents. I think we may now be moving up the property ladder and buying our forever home. I can now say as I touch every piece of wood near me  We have sold our house !! .…

    Speech and language activities to promote language development in pre-schoolers

    Ava is a good talker but I would say she has been a little bit behind where she should be with her speech. A lot of the time she would say things and only myself or Jordan would know what she was saying. Mainly because we spend a lot of our time with her so we got used to how she would say things. Even if they wernt the correct way of saying things. I noticed that she was getting a little lazy with her speech and we wernt helping things because we didn’t correct her when she wasn’t saying things properly. So over the last few weeks we have…

    Water softener pitcher by Zerowater : review

    I’m not the biggest drinker of water and I know it’s something I need to get better at . I know the more water I drink the better my skin is so when zero water offered me their water softener pitcher to review . I thought it might give me the kick up the bum to drink more water. The main reason to why I dont drink it is because I dont really like the taste of our tap water. So I only tend to drink water when I buy a bottle of water from the shop. Which if Im honest I never do as I hate paying for water…

    Film recommendation: “Tully”, a manifesto of modern motherhood

    In collaboration with Emily J The film “Tully”, recently in theatres and now available on the new streaming platform Chili, may definitely be considered a manifesto of modern motherhood. Motherhood is often portrayed in movies to a degree that real mothers have themselves looking at their own homes and lives and saying, ‘yeah, that’s notrealistic’. “Tully”, however, is changing this. In “Tully”, you see the messy house, zero sleep, exhaustion, and how motherhood has affected main character Marlo, a frazzled mother of three,played by actress Charlize Theron.Charlize Theron explained in an interview with People magazine that self-identity and motherhood is something that Marlo struggles with, and that she is not…

    How we got our two year old to stop wearing a night nappy

    Ava has been out of a nappy in the day since June . She really did so well with her potty training it was so much easier than I thought it was going to be. Once I knew we had the day sorted with no nappies I thought it was time we started to think about taking away the night nappy. For a few weeks prior to taking the nappy away at night I made a point of checking her nappy in the morning to see if she had done a wee in it. 9/10 it was dry , so I started to talk to her about taking it away…
