I was watching Loose Women (a UK day time TV show) on bank holiday Monday, and there was a topic about shouting at children, is it worse or the same as smacking? In my opinion it all depends on the situation. My child is coming up to two years old, and he has been extremely... Continue Reading →
After giving birth I had what they call “baby blues”, I literally cried every single day for two weeks straight, and over the smallest and silliest things. I was truly an emotional wreck, I felt like I didn’t know what I was doing, and that I wasn’t being the best mum I could be. But... Continue Reading →
On my blog i cover a few subjects, the day to day life of parenting, motherhood, and i even throw in some of my favourite recipes. However, aside from these daily issues, which many other "mum blogs" talk about, i also post about more serious topics that affects not only us as parents, but our children.

The weaning process: We started weaning him a... Continue Reading →

However, the recent outbreak of measles reported in the media is driving widespread concern, including for my parents. So once again conversations have arisen in my family about the fact my husband... Continue Reading →
As a mum with a young child I feel guilty about everything that is remotely selfish. Before having my son, I had a fairly busy social life, and went out for dinner and drinks with the girls, and date nights with hubby etc…on a regular basis. Now my social life is as dry as a... Continue Reading →
Now I'm not usually one for vegan mince (i mainly try to eat whole foods), but since going plant based i have really craved a decent lasagna, a favourite in my household. I have tried so many soy based mince, which have been absolutely rubbish. I steer away from anything containing GMO's so Quorn mince... Continue Reading →
