Charity shopping

I love charity shopping. <img src="" border="0" Saturday saw me at the hospice shop. Pricing seemed a little weird with some things going for a song and some priced up at more than they would have been new. Some lovely orange and lavender scented incense cones from Ashleigh and Burwood 50p An

Making a fresh start on the blog

I am making a fresh start on the blog. It is prettier than the Blogger one and I have had enough of Blogger playing up in little annoying ways like going all dark or not letting people leave comments. It is also two years tomorrow since my Mum passed away.  The old

Birth plans

Birth plans seem like such a good idea when you first hear the concept. As a mum-to-be we have a vague idea that birth might involve a lot of pain and screaming so surely it is best to have a plan. Before I experienced the reality of childbirth, I thought the

Dancing with Frubes

Are you in the mood for dancing? Perhaps you are inspired by Strictly Come Dancing? I had a look at the dictionary definition of dance. Apparently it means to move rhythmically to music, typically following a set sequence of steps. Of course some of us have more natural rhythm

Cheerful this morning and the reasons why

I am feeling cheerful this morning particularly as I have found time to participate in one of my favourite blog hops of all time. Here is a list of happy things. 1. I am on top of things - ooo-er missus! 2. I had a lovely long walk on the most amazing

Reasons to be cheerful

A funny old week consisting of worry, powerlessness, loss, hope and impure thoughts. As of yesterday, I have more free time as no longer doing social media for BritMums.  I have done it for 4 years and it rescued me giving me an interest after Dad died. So I have more time

Strong bin liners review

Strong bin liners are not the sort of thing I expected to get excited before becoming a wife and mother. They were about as interesting as warm cardigans and storage solutions. How times change! Like many women, the bulk of the housework falls on me even though I work. I resent

Pedigree dog food

Pedigree dog food is always the brand that I have associated with quality. However, I have also associated it as not the cheapest brand on the market and wondered whether it really can make a difference to a dog's mental and physical health. So I have tended to go with working

Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts movie

Snoopy and Charlie Brown brings back fond memories so I was delighted when I was given the opportunity to share the joys of these characters with my son Ramsey. The Peanuts gang make their feature film debut in Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie, and we were asked to give

Starting our journey with Pedigree

Mumsnet and Pedigree have asked us to record our nutrition journey with our pet. My husband attended the WALTHAM® Centre for Pet Nutrition this week to find out more about Pedigree products for dogs. He had a tour of the facilities followed by some talks and had the opportunity to

Do you get confused by health headlines?

Do you get confused by health headlines? Let's face it! Most of us take on the healthy living journey trying to incorporate exercise and to lose weight amongst a huge pile of other tasks and challenges. We reduce fat and salt only to be told sugar is our real

Which celebrity mom are you?

Celebrity moms are always in the news and some of us aspire to be more like them. Mums are individuals so some will want to follow a certain style icon whilst others will be inspired by celebrity moms who campaign for good causes. Do you admire a particular celebrity mom. With

Is it time to rest?

Is it time to rest? Today is 29th February and social media is telling us we have an extra day. I wonder what most mums have done with that day. My guess is that most will not have taken it as a day of rest. I imagine mums
