We recently spent two amazing weeks in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and had the most amazing time. We booked our holiday through Thomson and stayed at the Sensatori Punta Cana. I’ll be writing a full hotel review over on The Places We Will Go soon but I just wanted to share some of our holiday photos 🙂 Read more
Well the holidays have got off to the usual brilliant start with poorly kids! Bugs was supposed to go on a football course everyday this week but he has terrible asthma so I’ve postponed that until next week, hopefully he will be much better then. As we have been stuck indoors we have been having a massive clear out, the kids are helping too seeing as we are turning my old office into a playroom for them so they are very eager to get that done! Looks like I’l be working from the dining table in future… I’ve got a huge list of blog posts to write so I’m hoping to get chance to do those over the holidays 😉 Read more
Excitement levels are really high in our house at the moment. Bugs just has one day left at school and Boo has two, although you can’t really call it school with all the fun they have been having for the last week or so! Discos, concerts, movies, picnics… I seriously wish I could go off to school! As always I am really ready for them to break up for the summer but not as ready as I will be for them to go back in September 😉 I love having them home but 6 weeks is a long time and they really do miss going towards the last couple of weeks. We have nothing planned yet for the summer as we have already had our two weeks in the sun but I’m hoping to get away for at least a few days. What have you all got planned? Read more
I’m a bit late getting my #project365 up this week as I went out for the day yesterday with my lovely big sister, we had such a lovely day. It’s not very often we see each other so it was lovely to go and do a bit of shopping and have lunch together! Life is really hectic at the moment, I’m still trying to get my holiday posts written and we’ve been back a good few weeks now… hopefully they will be coming sometime this week. But for now here is my last week in pictures 🙂 Read more
You would think that as a parent of children that suffer with asthma and other allergies I might have previously shown some concern with the air they breathe, but it has never really been something that I thought about affecting them. I wasn’t surprised to find out that I wasn’t alone, we seem to spend so much time thinking about what food and drink we put inside ourselves but not about the air we breathe. So when Philips got in touch with me to see if I’d like to take part in the #BreatheTheDifference campaign I had my eyes opened a little! I was very surprised to learn that indoor air can be up to 5 times more polluted than outdoors [i] and that allergens have a major impact on indoor air quality. Read more
It’s that time of year again when I start thinking about the kids going back to school in September! I know! I know! They haven’t even finished for the summer yet but if I don’t do it now I will leave it to the very last minute and then rush about like a headless chicken for the last two days of the holidays! Another reason to start early is so you can shop around and grab yourself some bargains! I’ve recently been checking out what back to school products Very.co.uk have on offer and thought I’d show you some of their best! Read more
I have just realised this morning that the kids have only got three weeks left at school until they break up for the summer! It is absolutely crazy where this year has gone! The last few weeks of term are always crazy busy especially with my two in different schools as I have to go to two sport’s days, two school fayres etc… I’m hoping next year will be less busy as they will be both in the same school for one year before Boo goes up to secondary school!! My goodness time is flying by!!!
