I just love this time of year, it means I can get out of my jeans and jumpers and start wearing dresses again. I am always on the lookout for dresses that I can wear during the day and then some that are a bit more glam for going out in an evening. Today I’ve been taking a look at Fashion World to see what they have to offer and I’ve come up with five gorgeous day dresses and five stunning dresses for going out. Read more
Well this week’s #project365 is a bit of a jumble I’m afraid as I actually stopped doing it. I got to the point where I was so burnt out with having to take a photo every day that I just had a bit of a wobble and stopped. After a lovely weekend away with my big sister and some lovely bloggers I have decided that I am going to pick it right back up again. Yes I missed 8 days but really does it make much difference to me or anyone else? Exactly! So here I am back again as if I’d never stopped 😉 Read more
I remember back in May 2006 when First News launched, Liam was so excited to get his very own newspaper each week! I thought it was an absolutely brilliant idea back then and was really excited to find out that the team behind First News have now launched First Wonder Box which is a brand new fortnightly subscription service for 4-8 years olds full of fun and activities. Bugs has been very lucky to receive three of their boxes to play with so we can tell you all about them. Read more
Last Friday we headed to Son of Steak in Nottingham. I’ve been wanting to visit ever since it opened last year, we did try last September but we couldn’t get a table as it was too busy when we went. Son of Steak is on Trinity Square in the centre of Nottingham making it the perfect location if you are shopping, at the cinema or on a night out. There is seating both indoors and outdoors and the whole place has a lovely relaxed vibe. Once inside we were greeted by the very friendly staff and seated at our table and given menus and asked to order at the counter. Read more
Phew it’s been a busy couple of weeks. The kids have gone back to school this morning after having two weeks off for Easter. We have had a really lovely two weeks but I was definitely ready for them to go back so I can catch up on some work, housework and not to forget a bit of Grey’s Anatomy 😉 Read more
Going on holiday with a little one in tow can be incredibly stressful. Whether you are heading to somewhere hot and exotic, sunny Europe or the beaches of the UK, the key is to pack light and take the essentials whilst travelling and juggling a young child – even though we all want to take everything but the kitchen sink.
March wasn’t exactly the month I was hoping it to be. I was expecting spring to arrive but it was more like winter with all the snow and freezing conditions we had. When it wasn’t snowing it was raining so it was pretty miserable but we made the most of it. Bugs and I spent lots of the evenings running as he did a 25km challenge during March to raise money for Children with Cancer UK. He set out to raise £100 but he raised over £160 so he did really well considering the weather was really crap. The kids had fun dressing up for World Book Day and I spent a wonderful Mothering Sunday with all my three kids at home. Read more
