During October I am taking part in #Blogtober18, where I write a blog post everyday for the whole month. Mandi over at Big Family Organised Chaos is hosting a linky each day where she also gives a prompt for us to write about. Today’s prompt is ‘just be yourself’ for #WorldMentalHealthDay. Read more
Good morning everyone. Today’s prompt for #Blogtober18 is Boobs specifically relating to #BreastCancerAwareness so if you came along expecting to see my boobs you are going to be sorely disappointed but I’m going to be sharing lots of useful information about Breast Cancer Awareness and what you can do to help. Did you know that Breast cancer is the most common cancer affecting women in the UK, with 1 in 8 women being diagnosed in their lifetime?! Read more
At the start of the year Bugs my 7 year old sat down to write his new years resolutions, I’m not sure where he got this idea from as it isn’t something we really do as a family so I think they must have talked about it at school or something. Read more
So the day of the Ikano Bank Robin Hood Half Marathon has come and gone and you’ve probably seen my photos all over my social media saying that I did it so I thought I’d put a post together about how I managed to survive! Since drunkenly signing up in January I have put in so much training, the longest run I did before the big day was 10.5 miles so I was terrified when it actually came to the day… Read more
You might remember back in January when I had a few too many glasses of Prosecco and signed myself and my other half up to do a half marathon, I couldn’t even run a kilometre back then and quickly regretted the decision! Not one to back out of a drunken mistake I actually decided that hell yes I can do that and started on a training programme to get me across the finish line! 13.1 miles is a BLOODY LONG WAY and the time is almost here for me to actually do it! Our summer has revolved around training, training and more training and to date I have clocked up over 650KM. I’m tired, really tired but I know I can do this! Read more
Living in the digital age is pretty magical but it can be a really worrying time for parents, there is so much available on the internet that we don’t want our kids to see. NSPCC research found that children were as likely to find pornography accidentally, as to deliberately search for it. Innocent searches can sometimes reveal not so innocent results. Read more
You know when you wake up and think “OMG! What have I done?” today was one of those moments… Last night after a few glasses of prosecco (yes I know it was a school night, it was our anniversary) I decided it would be a great idea to sign myself and my other half up to do the Robin Hood Half Marathon!!!!! I don’t feel quite so confident and invincible today hahaha! Read more
St John Ambulance has launched Nursery Rhymes Inc. a campaign that teaches parents and the wider public how to help a baby who’s stopped breathing. New research* shows that this is the first aid emergency parents are most worried about, yet only one in four know how to help. Nursery Rhymes Inc. teaches baby CPR in a short, clear and reassuring way to help parents remember what to do in an emergency.
