How to throw a We’re going on a Bear Hunt movie party

As I’m sure you’ll remember, last week we watched We’re going on a Bear Hunt the DVD, and then had a twitter party with UKMumsTV. The party was great fun, so I thought I’d share the activities we did, in case anyone fancies having a bear hunt party of their own 🙂 Party tip no […]

Christmas cinnamon buns with a new ricotta cheese icing

As I’ve written a number of times, we’re gradually building up our stock of Christmas traditions buns, and that includes a special home baked breakfast of big, yeasty cinnamon buns. Now, the ones you can buy from bakeries usually have a quite gooey icing on them, and I’ve never quite cracked that before. This year […]

Christmas books at Stillwater books.

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CollectiveBias It can’t have failed to escape your attention that Christmas is coming, and where I’m concerned, that means books. So the other day I popped into town to do a little bit of book shopping at our […]

Motherhood #voiceofmums

Motherhood. It means so many different things to different people. For me, when I think of motherhood, I think of that moment when I first held each child in my arms, and it felt like something physically rearranged inside me to fit this new person into my heart. It’s a powerful emotion. At that moment […]

Creating memories

Recently I was sent a rather adorable teddy bear and some Fairy washing stuff. It’s part of Fairy’s #PowerofSoft campaign. Time passes so quickly when they’re little. It feels like only yesterday when they were tiny newborns enjoying those super soft cuddles for hours on end and pretty soon they are starting to do all […]

We’re halfway through the summer holidays here in England now, and I’m willing to bet a few parents are starting to feel the budget pressures mounting up, and the inspiration running out. Nectar has some suggestions to help your money go that little bit further and stave off the boredom, starting with this video. Their […]

UnmuteUK – let’s get public service working for us

I am a huge fan of the NHS. I think having a National Health Service is an absolutely fantastic thing for all of us, and I’ve done lots to campaign against the sneaky sell offs going on under the current government. (Look up #TTIP for the latest attack.) But. At the same time, they do […]

Scottish Friendly Children’s Book Tour

For anyone who hasn’t read widely on my blog, a quick heads up – I love books. I can see the rest of you shaking heads with a no, really? kind of look 😉 I also love sharing books with my children. (That wasn’t news either was it?) As well as all of that, I […]

Lost as to what’s going on with ISAs and New ISAs? Worry not.

If I had money to save, I might use an ISA. I did, once. Have money that is. And an ISA, I think. Back in the those heady days when we had one child and two salaries. *deep sigh*. It’s been quite a while since I’ve had to worry about saving or investment options, which […]
