As you may (or not) be aware, a very special little lady is about to turn one. I cannot believe how fast the last twelve months have gone. They say time flies when you're having fun and I guess they'd be right. The way I see it is that every day with our beautiful daughter … Continue reading Six Simple Steps to Planning a First Birthday Party on a Budget.
No matter what we do, or when we go, we always seem to attract the bad weather. However, we're not the kind of people that let the weather dampen our fun. Many moons ago when we were a lot younger, we ached less, were less grouchy, had fewer grey hairs and before I had even … Continue reading Travel – Colchester Zoo
As we all know, a new year means new goals, or rather refreshed goals that we may not have achieved last year, or the year before. For the last ten years at least my New Years resolutions have featured weight loss of some kind. Some years have been more successful than others, but nevertheless my … Continue reading Goals for 2018
First of all, let me start by wishing you all a very happy new year. I hope that, regardless of how 2017 has treated you, 2018 will be amazing. For us, 2017 was an amazing year.

We as mums, try our best to ensure our children have the best start … Continue reading Mama Rants 3 – Snobby Mummies!
Guess who's back?!? YAY! It's good to be back. I just wanted to say a huge thank you to those who have stuck around.

I'll be working part time doing supply teaching so I'll have … Continue reading Setting Some November Goals
So, let's start off with a small apology. Since returning to work earlier this month, the blog has taken a massive hit. Being a mum and working full time is as difficult as you'd imagine. Despite not having the full range of teacher duties (marking, planning, data and assessment etc.) I still find that I … Continue reading An Apology
Nobody said motherhood was going to be easy. Nobody said that some days you would just want to cry all day long. Nobody said that teacher tired would be a joke compared to new mum tired and I can only imagine how bad it must be with two or more! Nobody told me that once … Continue reading Zosia – 6 Months Update
So today's post is about preventing identity theft. In my relatively short time using a bullet journal and being a part of the fantastic community I have witnessed several horrifying spreads.
