These boots are made for walking! I am going to commit to making sure that EVERY DAY! I go for a brisk walk during my lunch hour. Making the most of the fact that The Stray is literally across the road. I have had an office-based job for the last two years; I can tell […]
Emotionally I'm done. Mentally, I'm drained. Physically, I smile! Sat at work rosy-cheeked and puffy-eyed! I needed a way to let out the way I am feeling. Here goes! I'm not feeling my best self. Lately, I hate the way I look! Feeling very tired and run down, snap at everyone and the littlest of […]
Pretty Pink Bedroom. What little girl doesn't want a pretty pink bedroom!? Kayleigh has been asking and asking for a pink room for longer than I can remember! But it isn't easy when we rent. I would have loved to have gone the whole shebang, unicorn wallpaper and lots of glitters. Instead, we opted for […]
Saturday The weather was awful this weekend, so we had a home weekend. We don't get a sleep-in on the weekend- I have always been an early riser, I think I got up about 7.30am which I guess is sleep in for me! I usually get up between 6 - 6.30am. Recently, Lex, our little […]
Oh, my days! The myths around terrible twos and the tweens, not to mention the ever so delightful teens! So what is this in-between bit? My youngest has just hit 8 and a half overnight like a switch has been flicked. She is a monkey! She screams, she stomps her feet, and she seems to […]
#MUMGOALS This next month I want to implement change in our family life. Research suggests that it only takes 21 days to form a habit, so between now and the end of February, which is longer than 21 days, all the below should become a habit, right!? 1. Screen time My children spend way too much time […]
Leeds Bradford to Antalya We travelled from Leeds Bradford to Antalya, Turkey, the flight about 4 and a half hours long with a 3 hour time difference. Once landed, and before going for our luggage, you had to go through immigration. It's best to make sure you have all your passports ready with visas. […]
I Love a good binge-watching session on a weekend when the weather is really awful leaving us limited to what we can do. Top 10 TV Shows Stranger Things - Few episodes into season 2! The Originals - I can't wait for the final season! Van Helsing Vampire Diaries - The final episode made my eyes […]
Are you planning a childfree holiday? My partner and I have only ever been on holiday alone, without our girls once! In the 17 years, we have shared together, not even a mini-break or night away in a hotel. So, last year my parents said we must do it, they would have the […]
My day started with me shouting like a fishwife and my teen daughters squabbling! Over school skirts, yes you heard correct. I washed all the school clothes in the evening ready for the morning; I was getting on with the things I needed to be done, washing the dishes left from last nights tea. The general busy mum tasks carried out every morning, running around straightening up before heading to out of the door.
November 2017 my oldest daughter Lyndsay decided she was going to give busking a try. Off she went to Harrogate town centre Ukulele in hand, and I am thrilled with the response and support she has received from all the local folk!
