My Hectic Life as a Working Mum

Life of a mum is never easy, but it’s not bad either and we would never change it for anything! In fact becoming a mother is many woman’s dream. To have that opportunity in itself is a complete blessing. It’s true that you have to carry out lot of roles or responsibilities as a mum, but that’s not the end of story. Your life can still be "happening" if you know how to balance between work and fun!
Being a mother of a three year old daughter and an 8 month old son, I'm also a working woman, a wife, homeowner and not forgetting a blogger too. I go through a super hectic schedule every day. Needless to say, my life seems to be no less than a roller coaster ride and just gives me the jitter of nerves every now and then.

A Child Friendly Garden

With the warmer weather now officially here you may find that your children are constantly pining to get outside. My own daughter loves being outside. We have such wonderful neighbours, all of which who have children. Quite often on a Sunday or on a sunny evening you will see all of the children playing together, whilst the parent's take turn to supervise. Whilst this is lovely, I can't help but think how young Darcie still is and yet she's asking to go and knock on her friends doors to see if they want to go play. I constantly find myself asking where the time has gone.

With our garden plans still yet to get started (we're still waiting for our summer house!) it has got me thinking how we can make the garden child friendly. Especially now our Son, Henry (8 months old) is starting to enjoy and explore the garden too. Having done a little bit of research there are so many ways in which this can be done, including suiting all budgets. I thought I would write a little post on my ideas for a child friendly garden.

A Mothers Love

The love I have for my children can sometimes knock me off my feet. Literally. An all consuming love that you just can't quite describe, but all mums will instantly relate and no words are needed. You may have a dog/pet that you adore. Love even. But it simply does not compare to that of a child.

It's the kind of love that makes you question everything in life. Are you being too strict, not strict enough? Are they eating the right foods, getting enough sleep, is that rash something sinister? The worries of a mum are never ending and I'm sure even as they grow these worries never end.

Packing Tips for a Family Villa Holiday

Villa Holidays are becoming a more popular choice amongst families. Having your own space, meal times (no rush to get down in time for breakfast), and often your own pool really appeals to parents. Whilst we have stayed in hotels with the children before, a cottage or villa would always be my number one choice. 

So if you're thinking of having a villa holiday, what should you be packing?

Our weaning journey so far

Our weaning journey, so far, has been relatively straightforward. Memories of early weaning with my daughter always played on my mind. I found the whole processes very stressful. So this time around, I was determined to make the process an enjoyable one. Not to get too worked up and educate myself so I would be filled with confidence whilst weaning my son Henry.
