ThriftMAY – No Spend Month

I’ve mentioned recently that as a family we’ve been trying to save after realising how much money we actually waste on a monthly basis.  I was finding that we were constantly doing grocery shops along with several practically daily top up shops, all of which meant we were coming down with food we mostly didn’t […]

Honestly IS the best policy

I’ve been doing this mummy blogging shebang for over a year now and have found it so freeing and uplifting to be able to express myself in both written form and more recently  through the medium of those addictive little squares on Instagram. I have prided myself on being completely authentic and wholly true to […]

In search of my yoga mojo

For the last few months I haven’t quite been in the best place.  I’ve completely fallen off the wagon in terms of health and fitness and have been preoccupied with the daily chores of being a full time mum, more than taking care of myself.  For those that have followed my blog for a while, […]

Back and blogging!

It’s been a long time since I’ve properly sat down to write an off the top of my head blog piece, between our lovely holiday to Australia and then the whole Christmas and New Year kafuffle.  Basically life has taken over recently and I’ve neglected the one thing that became the focus of so much […]

Australia Holiday – Day 1

It was an earlier wakeup call this morning than I had expected.  Given that I had barely slept at all, it was pretty rubbish to be woken at 5:30am.  By the time I had finished packing last night, I did my fake tan and sat around writing whilst in a squating frog like position it […]

2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 14

The toddler was awake at 5.50am, which wasn’t too bad, but I think i’m just residually tired from so many ridiculously late nights recently that I just felt like a wreck this morning.  Hubby was feeling far more chirpy than me, so fetched the toddler and brought him into bed for a feed.  I sleepily […]

2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 13

The toddler was up at 5.50am this morning, which was alright for hubby who went to bed at 10.30pm, but considering I went to bed just before 3am, I was feeling a little worse for wear.  Hubby brought the toddler into bed and I fed him for a while and had a bit more sleep. […]

2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 12

The toddler was up at 6am, I was not feeling quite so perky after another late night writing/procrastinating/doing holiday prep.  It’s so difficult to make myself go to bed at a reasonable time, because I have always loved the peace and quiet that you get late night/in the early hours of the morning.  I find […]

2 week holiday abs countdown – Day 11

The toddler was up at 5.30am, which felt like torture in comparison to the lovely lie in he had yesterday. Hubby wanted to see if he would settle, but I just couldn’t listen to him calling for us, so broke the rules and went to get him early. I brought him in to bed with […]
