Looking for a new home is stressful enough but house hunting for the perfect family home that ticks all the boxes is on another level. I wish this was a post about helpful hints and tips for moving with children, maybe that will come in the future. We knew we were going to have to move house when Charlie came…

One Of Those Weeks

I’ll be honest, this week has seen tears, meltdowns, laughter, new adventures, anxiety and so much more – we are only at Wednesday and I’m done! I’m having one of those weeks where nothing goes to plan, things go wrong and emotions are sky high. I could bottle it all up and feel 10xs worse but I feel like I…

Mummy, But A New Me

They say motherhood changes you and I absolutely agree. Since becoming a mum I have become a better version of me and I’m starting to enter a new stage of parenthood. During the early years I had no idea what the heck I was doing, I would read books, listen to friends advice and copy other mums. But nothing can…

A Sunday Well Spent…

They say a Sunday well spent, brings a week of content and I sure hope that’s true. We had a lovely family Sunday eating out, cooking together, playing with vintage Lego and ending it with a big roast dinner. Sunday morning was spent at a trendy bar for breakfast. We usually go to Wetherspoons but fancied somewhere a little different…

Being productive however can be tricky especially since my children started school. During the early days when I had a toddler and newborn we spent our days going off plan, routine…

Bad Moms Exeter Adventures At Bills Restaurant

As the title suggests myself and Mum, That’s Me blogger Lynsey, were Bad Moms at the weekend. Although we didn’t get steaming drunk or act wreckless (saving that for our Christmas night out) we did have a bit of a mummy date in Exeter. Dads were on duty, train tickets were purchased and we were freeeeee! It still feels so…

Raw, Honest Motherhood

I’m sat on the bed with my poorly little boy who is full of a cold and chesty cough (still), the rain is pouring down and my clothes are soaked through. Monday again, how quick do the weekends go? I prefer the run up to Christmas (October, November, December) much more than the actual day, so I love cosy weekends…

Grocery Shopping Budget – Aldi

Grocery shopping is the one thing that I struggle with balancing. Up until recently our food shopping bill was creeping up to near £200 a week – shocking! We were wasting food, making daily trips to Tesco and spending far too much. The thing about Tesco is, I went in for a few essentials and came out £50 lighter every…
