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!!!
Our holiday seems ages away now, like we have never been away. I’m already longing to book somewhere else but unfortunately we can’t just yet so I’m just going to have to keep looking back at the photos and dreaming about it 🙂 It didn’t take us long to settle back in to the same old routine… I wish I could say it didn’t take me long to get all the washing and ironing done, I can’t! I’m still struggling with it all. I think that is the worse thing about going away isn’t it?! Read more
A few weeks ago we discovered yet another National Trust property and probably our most favourite to date. Belton House is an absolutely gorgeous property sitting in formal Italian and Dutch gardens and an historic 1300 acre deer park. We visited on a gorgeous Spring day and spent the whole day exploring the beautiful grounds. It was too nice to venture indoors but we will be going back very soon to explore more. Read more
Phew! It’s been a long time since I have done three blog posts in one day 😉 At one time it was something I would do nearly everyday now I am lucky to get three done a week! Anyway that is all my project 365 posts all caught up. I need to go and get on with my mountains of washing now… *sigh* thats the worse part of coming back from holiday isn’t it! Read more
