Things I have Liked and Loved in April 2018

April sure has been a busy month – we seem to have such an incredible amount in such a short space of time. I wouldn’t say that time has exactly flown as it’s felt like forever waiting for pay-day but I’ve certainly kept myself entertained and exhausted throughout the month. Here are a few of the things which I have #LikedandLoved throughout April.


We Added A Further Four Paws To Our Family

We’ve been planning on getting a puppy for some time now and earlier this month we did precisely that. Maisy, our beautiful basset hound was eight weeks old when she came to us and since arriving she has made herself right at home and is growing at an incredible pace.…

#LittleLoves – Light House Awards, The London Marathon & The Bad Mothers Diary

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting my blog and for reading my #LittleLoves posts over the past few years. I have really enjoyed taking part in the weekly #LittleLoves linky. However, like all good things – this has come to an end.

Without further do I will share my #LittleLoves from the past week gone by for one final time, and then bid this linky a rather reluctant goodbye.…

#LivingArrows – Back To School Spring Shake Up 8/53 (2018)

So the kids went back to School today and whilst I fully intended to dash around the house at double speed cleaning from top to bottom following a full on half term holiday I decided that a few hours curled up with a cuppa and the soaps wouldn’t hurt anyone.

As it turns out I’ve now caught up on a weeks worth of my all time favourite Aussie soap and after having a little rest I was far more motivated when it came to transforming what was a total tip into a house to be proud of.

Despite being known for being the ‘parent with the plans’ I must have lost my shizz before half term because somehow it seems my kids also lost half their belongings.…

School Run Truths – 40 Facts From The Yard

As a parent to two (both of which attend School) I am a regular partaker of the dreaded School run. Over the years I’ve learnt quite a lot whilst out and about ferrying my little ones back and forth to and from School, it may not be rocket science but here’s a few of my observations.

Getting your children ready for School is often like dressing an angry, drunk dinosaur. Be sure to make plenty of time to get your children ready each morning. Actually getting the kids dressed and out of the door can often feel like running a marathon in stilettos impossible!… View Post
