Children Taught to Body Shame – When will it STOP???

As a Mum to two daughters, I am slightly nervous of my girls growing up. For fear of sounding incredibly old when I say this, things have changed a LOT since I was a girl. I didn’t wear make up until the end of senior school, didn’t see a hair straightener till I was 15, and the embarrassing photographs of me wearing a shell suit were only seen when my Mum bought out the albums to show my first boyfriend. The amount of pressure on young children and teenagers, both male and female these days is incredible, with far more of an...

Hump Day Linky – 21/6

Welcome back to Hump Day Linky and thanks for joining me on my linky to celebrate Hump Day – the middle of the week, and the downhill journey to the weekend! It’s not possible to talk about this week without mentioning the weather. I am going to be inherently British here and moan about how hot I am, despite the fact that I normally moan about the lack of Summer we get! We are MELTING. I have a 9 month old who is back feeding like a newborn and wants lots of sticky cuddles. It is torture. That said, it...

Capturing the Memories with My-Picture.co.uk

How many photos do you have in non-digital form?? I bet the answer is Not Enough. My partner would describe me as a “relentless memory maker“.

I love looking back at photographs and reliving the memories of the day, or reminiscing at how much our children have grown. As a result, I very rarely go anywhere without my phone or camera in tow, and take photographs most days, even of the ‘ordinary moments’ which may seem insignificant at the time but that you...

Surviving Breastfeeding in a Heatwave

Ok, someone turned up the heat. I love the sun, I love a nice warm summer, and I love spending time outside in the sunshine. I am however also inherently British, in that when it gets just that little bit too hot, I like to have a good old moan (see Things We All do in a Heatwave). One of the hardest things about being a Mum in summer (with the exception of keeping your baby cool) has to be breastfeeding in a heatwave, when quite possibly the LAST thing you want is to have a small wriggly sticky person...

Erin’s 4th Birthday – The Party Planning

Erin turned four on Monday, and the planning for her fourth birthday party is well underway. This year, due to me being on maternity leave, we have been unable to afford a nursery party as well as a family party, simply opting for a family party at home. You could be forgiven for assuming that this would therefore be a small affair – but we have a LOT of children in our family, and as such, there are 13 kids and 20+ adults who will be descending on our house this weekend! 🙂 We decided to use Bidvine to help us...
