Free Children's activity sheet Download | Autumn Scavenger hunt and bucket list


Autumn is my most favourite season of all. Crisp golden leaves, autumn soups and stews, hot chocolate with all the trimmings, halloween, bonfire night, the excitement brewing for the ever nearing Christmas day, twinkly lights, candles.... I could go on! 

An open letter to my last child on his first day at school.



Dearest Baby Boy,

My youngest. My last.

I've been through this already twice before, I should be a pro at it now. But for some reason I'm getting worse with each child.

I was nervous the first time around because it was all new. We both didn't know what to expect. We both didn't know the school or the teachers. I was nervous for your big sister because she was nervous.

Know your self-worth | 13 things that don't define you!


”Your value doesn’t decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth.” - Unknown

We are all our own worst critics in life. 

When we criticise, the mind listens, reacts & responds, making us feel anxious & stressed & decreases our mood.

It has a detrimental affect on our mental health.

We need to stop allowing outside influences like these defining us!

Budget friendly family recipe | Cheesy Chilli Beef Quesadilla's


Quesadillas are probably one of the most versatile meals I do and the children love them!

Like a little Mexican style toastie, you can literally add any filling your heart desires so it's especially great for using up leftovers. Which of course also makes this a budget friendly dish.

Our family favourite filling is cheesy chilli beef, which works out to around £1 per serving (with ingredients bought from Aldi)

Holiday Money Help | Be a savvy traveller with Curve


Hoorah, it's that time of year where we're all jetting off on our jollies and basking in the glorious overseas sun (because we aren't getting much of it here are we?) 

But spending abroad with exchange rates and card fee's can be a bit of a minefield. 

Not with Curve though!

Curve makes spending, here and abroad, simple.

Recipe | Pomodorini tomato, bacon & woodland mushroom tagliatelle


I love tinned tomatoes. They are a staple in my cupboards as I know I can always through a meal together with any thing as long as I've got some tomatoes in. I use them at least a few times a week.

Sweet Sundays | How to grab yourself cinema tickets for £2 inc sweets! [from now right through to August]



I have just managed to book for myself and the rest of the family to go and see Toy Story 4 on Sunday for just £13 instead of a whopping £50 and I even have 13 bags of sweets for my money too!

It could have been even cheaper if I'd wanted to, at just £10 but to give us a variety of sweets we opted for some smaller bags of sweets in the mix too (I'll explain this properly in a moment though!)

The offer is runny for the whole summer until the end of August so this is a great deal for any rainy days throughout the summer holidays with the kids (I mean, we are in Britain. Rainy days are likely huh?!)

My Saturday Soundtracks | 5 feel-good anthems to get your dancing around the house


I was recently lucky enough to be featured on the lovely Chelle's blog, The Mumington Post for week one of her 'Saturday soundtrack' feature.

"We know that inspiration comes and flows. One thing that keeps us inspired is the music we listen to and the books we read so we have decided to reinstate the previously popular Saturday Soundtrack!"

And I am so bloody glad she did!

I has so much fun choosing the five songs that get me grooving around the house on a Saturday morning that I thought I would share my little selection over here too.

I love music, it is literally my life. And whilst I am a fan of a good heartbreak ballad, I also love a good feel-good tune, something that takes you right back to happy times and just totally fills your heart with joy.

It is these types of songs that are essential for my mental well-being.

They not only make me happy, but also motivate me so much that I cannot clean or tidy the house without them blaring.

So here goes....

Gift Guide | Father's Day 2019


Hey, thank's for tunin' in.

Father's day is only a couple of weeks away now (Sunday 16th June) and so if you haven't already sorted presents for your Father/ Step-Father or your Children's Father/ Step-Father yet, you're in luck because I have collated a whole host of great gifts for every type of man.

Recipe | Afternoon tea strawberry & clotted cream cupcakes

 

The sun is shining here and I'm really feeling like Summer might just be upon us.

And what screams British summertime more than Strawberries and clotted cream?

These vanilla cupcakes ooze old fashioned home made runny jam when cut into, and the clotted cream frosting on top gives it a real Cornish cream tea taste.
