    Radio Silence: Life & Blogging

    Hi, how are you all doing (possibly a silly question)? I just wanted to pop a quick post up just to say hello really and check in. What a crazy few months it has been, life really has been full of ups and downs. Lockdown was mental, intense, full of emotion and now things are easing into a new normal we are entering a whole new anxious phase. Life as we know it has changed for the foreseeable, lots has happened in our household and we are all still getting used to our daily routine.

    milk&more – My Experience

    Who remembers milk being delivered by the Milkman? We never bought milk from a shop when I was younger it was always delivered to our doorstep whilst we slept. I remember the frozen top of the milk bottle (that was the best part) and being told off for using too much on my cereal. Nowadays we buy milk and other essentials at the supermarket and gone are the days of Milkmen – or so I thought. When milk&more got in touch to see if I would like a month’s worth of fresh milk delivered by the Milkman I quickly replied yes! I had not heard of milk&more before so was intrigued…

    I Need Routine

Then you come home and you’re tired from travelling, the kids are beyond exhausted and have contracted some sort of bug from the air conditioning on the plane – oh joy! This is us now, we had a brilliant 10 days away in Majorca but had a terrible flight home due to the lightening storm and arrived back at 4.30am after leaving our hotel at 11pm – we had to vacate our hotel room…

    Pros & Cons Of Being A Stay-At-Home Mum

    I have been a stay at home mum for 5 years including maternity leave. Pre kids I was always one of those ladies who intended to return to work after children. Even when I was pregnant with my first child I could see myself going back to work after maternity leave had ended, that was until I had my baby. My whole world changed, my outlook on life altered and I just knew I could not return to work. This was my own personal choice and I am in no way dissing working mums as I think being a mum in general is the toughest job us ladies undertake. I admire…
