Stay at home Date Night

We are in the situation that we don’t live anywhere near family, so we don’t really have a support network. Most of the time this isn’t an issue. However sometimes it would be nice to have someone we could get to babysit so we could have a date night. My hubby and I have only been out once, child free, in six years. I personally think this is pretty rubbish. Unfortunately we don’t have anyone to babysit, so we can have the occasional night out. J has been a terrible sleeper until the last four months so leaving him with anyone but family wouldn’t work. Our only option is a stay at home date night, which  is ok. The only problem we have is making time for it.  I spend my evenings working and M spends his evening with his feet up on his phone. When we have had a date night… View Post

Behind The Wheel With Epilepsy

It was past my 17th birthday and I was so excited to finally start driving lessons. Most of my friends were already driving and I wanted in! I was diagnosed with epilepsy when I was around 14/15, I just accepted and didn’t realise how it could affect my life. My seizures were controlled so I was able to have driving lessons. However I was due to have University so I never got to take my test, if I could turn back time I would have made sure I took it. As I went through University I had no problems with my epilepsy at all. I decided after University I was going to start driving lessons again. Unfortunately before I got chance to I started having seizures again. After then I realised that I couldn’t learn to drive unless I was seizure free for a couple of years. I was absolutely heartbroken. Several years on and I continue to live… View Post

A Few Things About Me

I wouldn’t say I have a very exciting life, I’m not saying I am unhappy but I do sometimes yearn for a little bit more excitement. Before I met my husband and pre children my life was quite varied and I think because of that I sometimes miss the exciting varied life. Here are just a few of the  fun things I have done in my life so far. I know there will be more fun things in the future too – I will make sure of it. * I used to be a Magicians Assistant. When I was at University I worked on holiday parks in the summer holidays, to save money for the following year. One summer after University had finished I went for an audition and ended up with the role of a magicians Assistant. This was one of the most fun summers I have had. It also led onto so… View Post

Giveaway – Win £30 to spend at Party Bags & Supplies

The start of the school year has started and with that comes children’s party time. I have taken E to a lot of different parties since she has started school.  No doubt there will be many more. One thing that is evident from the parties is how much cost and effort goes into them. Whether a parent has hired a village hall or having a party at home the expense of sorting out the party table wear, decorations and party bags soon adds up. If you have a party to organise I recommend popping over to Party Bags & Supplies website. It is a great website that sells everything you could possibly need to make your party look amazing. I am impressed with Party Bags & Supplies, they really do have a wide range of products you can buy. I love that they also have ready made party bags. One lucky… View Post

Online Shopping

Whilst I love a girlie day out shopping, I’m often left frustrated moving from one shop to another trying to find the item that I’m looking for, in my size.  It’s no wonder that in the vast majority of cases, I turn to online shopping.  It’s so much easier for me, as I can see all of the different pieces available with ease, by browsing and searching the web and I can compare prices right then and there.  Delivery is often free or at least far cheaper than a bus, train ticket or parking. The beauty of online shopping is that you can try items on in the comfort of your own home. The changing room fluorescent lights in shops are not always that flattering. Catalogue shopping has become more popular over the years and I can see why. I shop online at so many different websites including websites that are online… View Post
