As a parent there are so many wonderful moments (as well as the tough ones) – from the moment you hold your child in your arms, to the first time they tell you they love you – but one particular moment has always stood out to me. Seeing your baby smile, and then later hearing them giggle is the most wonderful thing in the world. After trying to have a baby for so long, hearing my baby laughing was something… View Post

I am not the biggest gardener in the world, and that is probably the understatement of the year. During our time living in this house, our garden has been made to look lovely by my mum quite a few times, but unfortunately we have let it grow a bit wild and messy and after one whole side of the fence fell down in the crazy winds we had a couple of months ago, the garden has been in desperate need… View Post

I have tested bubble baths and oils, hair masks, face masks, hand and body lotions and… View Post

With today’s kids having so much access to and such a love for technology, we have to work really hard to counteract that by making sure that they have plenty of time outdoors, and learn about the world not only from YouTube unwrapping videos and Shimmer and Shine, but also from exploring it themselves. It concerns me more and more as Ava gets older how little time she spends just playing outside compared to how much we used to, and… View Post
