Broadstairs Adventure

On Sunday, my husbands only day off in 9 days, we decided to make a picnic and head out for a walk somewhere. We wanted to get out of the house and explore - even if that meant taking our wellies (the weather was pretty dire). We loaded up the kids in the car and headed out of our drive. We looked at each other and said, "well where are we going to go?". Ideas were thrown around but Jamie pulled a wild card and suggested Broadstairs, a place we lived in for 3 years whilst at University. It's around a 2.5-3 hour drive but we had a hankering to visit.


Luxury kitchen additions

It’s only natural to want to add some luxury items to your kitchen design. Some might be costlier than others, but your priorities will differ based on your kitchen needs and preferences. What do you use your kitchen for? That might sound like an obvious question, but to some people, a kitchen is more than just a space to heat up a ready meal. Whether you are a master chef using the space to practice and experiment your culinary delights, or the ‘hostess with the mostest’ utilising the space to entertain guests, luxury items will make the most of the space.

Experiences Breastfeeding in Public

Next month sees world breastfeeding week, a week to celebrate and educate the magic of breastfeeding. It's been 7 months since I last breastfed Henry and my goodness I miss it. If I had my way I would have breastfed until he was two, but he made the decision for us both (which, really was the best way to do it).

Breastfeeding was truly something I treasured second time round. My experience with Darcie was pretty dire and she was never able to latch properly without the aid of a nipple shield and it all came to an end at 6 weeks. Still, six weeks is pretty incredible and for saying what a shit time I went through, that really was an achievement. Second time round was a breeze - literally a dream. Bar the cracked nipple in the first two weeks.

4 Tips to putting an addition on to your home

Adding an addition on to your home can be an exciting endeavor. The thought of increasing your square footage and allowing for more living space in your home for your family to enjoy is quite a thrill to think about. While exciting and something to look forward to, there is a great deal of work that goes in to adding on to your house. This article will share a few tips on how to put an addition on to your home.


Investing in your home

Most homes have some room for improvement, our own home could definitely do with some TLC. But when deciding what improvements to make it can be hard to decide what ones are the right ones, especially when you're looking to add value to your property. Will adding a loft conversion really improve the overall value? Does a swimming pool make a property more attractive to buyers – or less? Or should you forget adding value and focus on investing to making your dream home? Before you go spending your hard earnt cash, it may be important to understand which improvements are actually going to add value to your property.

Schools Out! Almost....

I can not believe this academic year is almost over and Darcie's first year of school is almost complete! This year has flown, I swear we should only be in the spring term! As a teacher myself, this past week has been a challenge - running on empty I think we're all ready for a break. The children too!
