It’s like having a pet bunny, they need the love, care and attention to transform them from a ball of matted fur into a fluffy cute bunny. The only way you know what bunny you have…

    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…

    The perfect welcome mail and other next steps for my blog

    This is a Sponsored post This year I really want to take my blog more seriously. Over the last 3 years my blog has changed so much . The posts I used to write in the early days are nothing like I write now. I used to write a post just so I could get one out on that day even if anyone didn’t read it. It’s not till I stepped back and realised that quality is better than quantity. So now I make sure that every post I write I write it because I want to, I put in the time and make sure it’s perfect. I also dont…

    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…

If people send their children to nurseries . You may not know but I have worked in childcare…

    Taking a break can give you the boost you need to start again

    This Christmas is the first year since having my blog that I haven’t really shared much on social media. Or written any posts. Even when Alby was first born I was getting posts out sharing how we were doing. This year though something felt different. I wasn’t getting the urge to write like I have before. I was just enjoying being in the moment not worry about photographing it to share on Instagram. Or making notes so I could write about our day once the kids had gone to bed. I was starting to let my blog overwhelm me. I was constantly working on it in some way or another.…

    How I stopped my Daughter using her dummy

    Ava is now Three and for the last 6 months I have been thinking about taking away her dummy. Not for any reason other than I think she’s getting too old for it. The road to getting rid of the dummy has been a long one. This is because Ava isnt one for change she likes to know when things will happen and how they will happen. So we she started back at nursery we started to really reduce the amount she had her dummy. I think seeing other children at nursery not having a dummy work wonders for her. She was never one to have it in her mouth…

    Whilst most of you were waking up on Boxing Day and deciding if to have chocolate or turkey sandwiches for breakfast. We were at Inflata Nation in Birmingham.

Also on Christmas Eve Ava was saying goodbye to her dummy so I thought it would make a nice treat . What is…

    Top trends for Girls’ party dresses in 2019

    This is a collaborative post  I have to admit that I’m really enjoying watching Ava grow and develop her very own sense of style the older she gets. Even if it does take us 10 times longer to get ready in the morning . Whether it’s her love for shoes that we’ve accidentally passed onto her or the way she likes to put together her own outfits every morning, it’s lovely to watch her grow and find a sense of self through fashion. And whereas we’ve decided to keep things fairly casual for the end-of-year celebrations, I could not stop myself from taking a gander at what 2019 has in…

    I have surived the first year of being a mom of two

    Tuesday was Alby’s first birthday so that means that I have survived a year of being a mom of two . Both kids are still in one piece and are happy and healthy. So I take that as a win we must be doing something right. Being a parent to two children is hard work, anyone that says it’s easy is lying to you. Going from one to two is hard. There are some things that I have come to realise over the last year. If you’re a parent of two can you relate to any of them. Sleep is a thing of the past Sleep doesn’t really happen much…
