We start talking about the festive season, with Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas creeping ever closer. For me it’s

While I am here… – An update and whats coming soon

As you know it’s been a hectic year.  Starting the new year off with no kitchen after our kitchen fire, it took a while to get that sorted. Then life threw a curveball and we realised that with the extra work that The Motherhood and Games Life is generating, we needed to have a proper

Life Update – Whats been happening?

Can you believe that we are already through the first quarter of the year? It’s April, it’s spring! It only seemed like a couple of weeks ago I was clearing away Christmas decorations, and now in my journal it’s telling me to start planning my summer content schedule and get writing. I have taken a

Let’s talk Hygge

Over the last year or so you may have seen this strange Danish word knocking around online and in books. You would be forgiven for expecting it to be a new piece of must have furniture from a designer brand or just a mash of keys pressed in anger. In fact it is neither, and

Christmas comes but once a year – but if you are a blogger it lasts for MONTHS!

Yes, I am already thinking about Christmas, and I have already got the decorations out.  You may think I am mad but as a blogger this is quite normal.  This year I am undertaking a task that has had me up at night counting the days till Christmas, and not in a good way –

Hotel Review – Ibis Styles Southwark Rose

Recently I was invited to attend BritMums 16 as a room monitor and for my visit to the Big Smoke, I was lucky enough to get the chance to work with the Ibis Hotel group who provided me with accommodation in their Southwark Bridge Hotel.  I have to admit, I am not a fan of

10 ways you know you are finally a grown up

Age is but a number and they say growing up is easy, but in my head I have always felt that I am in my mid 20s still. Stuck in the early 2000’s and convinced that 2003 was only a couple of years ago.   It has only been in the last 6 months that
