How To Get Your Family Back In The Garden

Picture Source We’ve all been there. Maintaining a garden is difficult, and once you let standards slip it becomes hard to find the motivation to get back out there. The overgrown weeds, dying plants, and tacky, old garden furniture are all things which aren’t quite as appealing anymore; there’s little to motivate the family to relax in the garden on a warm summer’s day or any kind of day, for that matter. Still, much like giving that cluttered living room or the broken cabinets in the kitchen a makeover, you’ll thank yourself for tackling that unappealing task later. Here are… [Read More]

We did it! 2k Family Fun Run!

Oh my goodness me. I can’t believe I actually managed to convince my husband to take part in a 2k family fun run with me and our five year old twins, but I did! My husband is the type of person who drives to the shops when he could walk it in five minutes. He always moans when we go to pick our girls up together as I’d rather walk and stop off at the park on the way home. If my husband had it his way, we’d go in the car, pick them up and return home straight away!… [Read More]

How Large Families Can Save Money

If you have a relatively large family, then you will probably be aware that it is often surprisingly easy to accidentally overspend and to end up with little money at the end of the month. This can happen all too easily, but the truth is that the solution is to simply adopt a different kind of attitude. There might only be a certain amount of money coming in, and the same responsibilities every month, but if you are a little clever about it then you can easily save a considerable amount of money for your family each month. In this… [Read More]

What we did this week

It doesn’t feel like we’ve done much this week, but when I look back at my pictures from this week, I certainly have been busy! Last weekend the girls and I made a rocket. Apparently a girl in their class made one the week before, so the girls wanted to make one as well! Out of all the photos I’ve taken this week, I forgot to take one of the finished rocket so here’s one of us making it! I worked on Monday and Tuesday so nothing much to report on there. I did go to spin class straight from… [Read More]

Family walk

I love a good blogging tag and when I was tagged in this tag by Five Little Doves I couldn’t wait to take part! So here goes! 5 Personal Wishes 1. To loose weight. I feel like this is something I say every year and yet I never seem to change.

What we did this week

To be honest with you, it doesn’t feel like we have done much this week! On Sunday my mother-in-law came over for dinner and the girls played snakes and ladders with her, and did puzzles together. It was lovely to watch them together! The girls played on the trampoline in the garden, as did I!  I went to work Monday, and then again on Tuesday. I also went to spin class straight from work on Tuesday. I’m really enjoying the classes, but I really need to work on my diet.  That’s one of the reasons why this week I’ve tried… [Read More]
