Christmas and New Year is the ultimate party food time. All I want to do is ditch proper meals and over indulge on tasty treats, little nibbles and cheese! Most of the time I manage to reign myself in (apart from with the cheese….. I’ve no control when it comes to cheese) but if there

Things are winding down around here for Christmas. I don’t intend to blog over the festive period, I want to spend the time with my family. Eating my weight in junk food, visiting relatives and encouraging Piglet to crawl! I’ve seen a few people do the Christmas Tag, so I thought I would jump on

How on EARTH do you get your shower clean?!? When we designed our bathroom in February of this year we were pretty excited to be able to fit in a separate shower cubicle rather than having it over the bath. It makes our bathroom look very modern (if you look past the currently purple walls

Not that long ago I was wonder when would be the best time to stop breastfeeding. I have gone past the original point that I expected to stop and was questioning what I wanted to do going forward. I think it is a topic a lot of mothers worry about, and I definitely aren’t alone
