Doodle Collection Notebook Review & Competition

I absolutely love stationary. You won’t believe how many unused notebooks I have sitting around my house! Although they’re currently unused, I know that one day I will get around to filling each and every one of them. You see I keep a kind of diary, but it’s not like one of those diaries in which I write down what I did today. In my diary I like to focus on the positive things that happen. I use one page for the week and write down all of the positive things that happened that week. Nothing negative is allowed! Some… [Read More]

Mummy, when can I have a phone?

Being a parent often means that we can expect to hear a range of different questions coming from the mouths of our offspring. Examples I’ve received are: Mummy, why do you wear a bra? Mummy, did we both grow in your tummy at the same time? How did the doctors get us out of your tummy? These questions are fairly easy to answer, but when M asked me when she could have a phone, it was a question that caused a fair few tantrums. You see our twin girls are 5 years old. When I was 5, the last thing… [Read More]

The ups and downs of renting #RentalInsights

My husband and I have been renting for around 11 years and over those 11 years we’ve experienced our fair share of good and bad landlords. When we first started renting, we did so pretty quickly. We viewed one flat and took it the same day without a moments thought! Thankfully, we had a lovely landlady who was not only friendly and approachable, but also helpful and understanding. If we ever had any problems with our flat such as the one time our cooker blew up, our landlady would have someone out to look at it the same day. That’s… [Read More]

Shopping Trip Tips! #UltimateShoppingExperience

Now that I’m an adult I still enjoy shopping, but when I… [Read More]
