Spoilt Rotten For Valentines Day

Apologies for not having written a Valentines post but quite frankly I was far too busy being spoilt rotten by my husband to have time to sit with the laptop and document the details.

I awoke to a massive bouquet of flowers, chocolates and a rather cute card. Paul and I exchanged gifts then got the kids ready for School and set about our usual daily routine.

Our Valentines Gift Exchange

I spent the morning running around the house trying to get as many chores as possible completed, jumped in the shower to freshen up then had a coffee and a catch up with a good friend before collecting E from Nursery.…

Flexible Working Hours To Ease The Pressure On The Quality Of Family Life

Flexible Working Hours To Ease The Pressure On The Quality Of Family Life

As a mother of a young family, a lot changes and invariably, from time to time, sacrifices have to be made…

Or do they?

Many women are starting to realise that, instead of sacrificing the career they had before they became parents, this particular time of their lives, actually presents an opportunity: The possibility of combining the fresh challenges of parenthood with new and exciting possibilities in their professional lives has never been a more realistic goal for new mothers.

As a parent, flexibility is the key to a happy and fulfilling work/life balance.…

Happy Twelve Years Together

This time twelve years ago I was nervously sitting in a cinema next to the man whom little did I know would very quickly become my soul mate and would one day be my husband and Father to my two wonderful children.

I remember our first date as if it was yesterday yet here we are twelve years down the line, happily married with two wonderful children, living as a family in our beautiful house surrounded by years of happy memories.

I’m fairly certain that Paul and I were written in the stars. I am pretty sure that if we hadn’t of met at work then it wouldn’t have been long before fate would have brought us together as we almost met countless times prior to actually finding each other. …

#LivingArrows – Polly & The Pirates 7/52 (2017)

Welcome to this weeks edition of #LivingArrows from the madhouse or as I like to refer to it ‘home’.

Time as always is flying by and already we have reached mid-February. As you are probably well aware Cupid is on the loose as it’s Valentines Day tomorrow.

To celebrate I decided to get my children a little something to let them know how much we love them. I have of course also got something for my hubby but will share this tomorrow to avoid spoiling any surprises.

Princess Polly

As a little girl I loved to play with dolls, there was of course Tiny Tears, the overgrown baby and Sindy who far outshone Barbie in my eyes. …
