I love a good day out, to the park, a museum, the beach. I’m not the biggest fan of people. People can be the total ruin of my day! I’m making progress though..I’d say that I like at least 3 more people now than I did this time last year 😀 Here’s 5 “rules” I follow for any occasion! Practice your ‘Hi!, we’re having a great time’ smile for every single person you come across. You’ll soon spot the other fakers. Over-enthusiastic grins and wide crazy eyes! Something like this… Cram your pockets and bag with snacks and drinks that you … Continue reading How to survive..A day out
I have a New Year tradition which started about 10 or 11 years ago. A friend and I pick a date in January and head off on a walk, wander or if we’re feeling brave, a hike. It started with … Continue reading My New Year Tradition.
Who on earth has the time to fit every single piece of ‘advice’ into their every day lives? Can you imagine fitting all of it into one day, every day, forever? 5 pieces of fruit and veg8 hours of sleep, … Continue reading Who has time for this s**t?
Home Education, or Home Schooling, as it’s more commonly known has never really been on my radar. I did once toy with the idea of it when my son was being bullied at Primary School, and if I’d known then … Continue reading Mental Well-being is more important than anything.
AD. I was gifted tickets from The National Forest Adventure Farm for our visit. All views are my own. What better way to start the Easter holidays than with a trip to the National Forest Adventure Farm! I’ve been coming … Continue reading The National Forest Adventure Farm’s Easter Eggstravaganza!
I already suffer with enough paranoia and guilt for absolutely no reason at all and therefore don’t need to be given any more by reading about how spending time on social media is stealing time away from being with my … Continue reading Enough with the family shaming!
We all know that I love to plan. I’m the master of planning. I am the Planinator, Planatron? She-Plan, Plan-Woman! And lots of other planning-isms… Therefore I obviously have a plan for 2019. I am positive that it will not be as intense as last year, I really should look at slowing down and finding some more ways to relax, spending time with my loved ones and replenishing my soul! I suppose then, that is my plan. Do less, live more and relax. I do have a few things lined up though… I couldn’t go cold turkey! A trip to … Continue reading My 2019 Plan!
and the guilt, worry, anxiety and major stress that comes with it! This post was inspired by talking to my lovely author friend and fellow blogger, Debbie Ioanna. We have very similar writing styles and it’s obvious that we see many things in the same way. Debbie suggested that we should do a collaboration on our respective blogs. Debbie has recently had her own little bundle of joy and mine ran out of joy about 5 years ago, so we thought we could have a bit of a ‘compare and contrast’ post based on baby versus teenager… here is my … Continue reading The joys of being a parent…
I have just returned from another fantastic holiday with my Mum and my son, we’ve been away together quite a few times and we always have so much fun. I adore the relationship that we have, it’s not like a tolerance because we’re family, I genuinely love spending time with both of them. We always have a laugh, sometimes at each others expense, and there’s plenty of silliness, usually from my Mum and I, whilst Christopher stands there and shakes his head. We don’t get on 24/7 of course, there are disagreements to be had, we’re only human, but … Continue reading Not your everyday ‘My Holiday’ post.
I spent the weekend in Wragby, Lincolnshire, with my Mother Goose and my Mother-Outlaw. And it was wonderful! We did so many of the things. Friday night was rather relaxed and mainly consisted of eating some food and going to bed because that’s how rock ‘n’ roll we are… oh we had Prosecco! That’s always rather nice. Saturday, however, was a whole different kind of story! We visited Bolingbroke Castle, in Bolingbroke, funnily enough. I had Googled some dog friendly places as we had Foxle Doggle with us aka Foxo Stuffing aka Foxy the Dog. Here is dog… Bolingbroke … Continue reading My weekend with the Mothers.
