A Wellie Walk around Southwold

This Sunday a walk on the beach to blow away the cobwebs was definitely needed. It has been a long and hard month this November and it was good to take stock with the little ones and big one (aka Jamie, my husband). It was such a glorious sunny crisp day, perfect for finding treasures and eating chips (and hot chocolate).

6 Simple Steps to Declutter Your Home Now.

As a mum, I seem to accumulate a lot of crap. Surprise toys galore, outgrown clothes, pushchairs and all those lovely handmade crafts and pictures they come home with from nursery and school. Whilst I wouldn't say I'm a complete minimalist, clutter definitely sets off my anxiety and I begin to feel stressed. Decluttering your home doesn't have to be a huge challenge, you don't have to rid your home of everything to make you feel a sense of calm and order.

I want my home to be filled with things that make me happy, things that have a purpose. I don't want to look at my home feeling like I'm constantly moving things around or trying to find "homes" for everything. I want to be able to open my wardrobe and be able to pull out clothes that will instantly feel put together instead of rummaging through my hoards of clothes with the opinion that "I still have nothing to wear". So, I'm on a mission. I'm decluttering and trying to change my thought process to a more minimal one. And no, that doesn't mean I want to dumb down! I want to be more thoughtful with purchases, items that I bring into my home - instead of mindlessly buying things that I think will make me happy.

Chosen by Kids | Toy Christmas Gift Guide

Asda recently got in contact and asked it we would like to check out the Christmas toy range that had been specially chosen by kids. Of course, my two were up to the challenge, so today we headed to our local branch to see what they had to offer.

ASDA's offers a huge range of toys and I was actually really surprised at the variety. They had something which would suit children of all ages and varying interests.
