Sex, Money & Death

Did the heading grab your attention? Or did it leave you feeling slightly awkward and a tad flushed? Why is it that we find certain topics really hard to discuss? Topic's like sex, death, financial matters and mental health are all topics that we tend to find difficult discussing with our family.  As a parent, I worry that my children may not feel comfortable coming to me if they needed help or advice. And although they're young, I think it's important to try and be as open as possible in order for there to be that open line of communication.

Our Hectic Life | Reading with Little Ones

You've all heard me say it before, our life is hectic, fast paced and sometimes a little overwhelming. Mine and by husbands schedules are so complex that I tend to lose track of days and the week is over before I feel it's even begun. We do always try to make sure that we give the children our time, whenever we can. It's never easy because there is always something that needs to be done. We try to ensure that they attend their out of school activities and ensure homework is done. One of my daughter's main focuses at reception age is reading. Reading with little ones is something we see as a priority, especially as I'm a teacher too. That feeling of falling head over heels in love with a book is something that I can't wait for Darcie to experience - I'm hoping she's a Potter fan!

What is your Interior Design Style?

If you follow me on social media, you will know that this year we're giving our home a little revamp. We currently are working on our living room and hall way and are awaiting new flooring to be laid. It's all very exciting. One thing we found quite stressful though was the fact that both the Hubby and I have very different interior design style preference. For example, I like shabby chic and my husband prefers a more modern design - this combination really doesn't mix!

Buying Clothes for Your Husband

I love what my husband wears, most of the time, but I know a few women who despair of the way their other halves dress. For the most part it is not their style it is the fact that they just will not let go of their old favourites, and are not that keen on going shopping. It seems that for some men, they just never seem to get around to doing it.
