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

5 Stylish Bunk Bed Ideas for Maximising Space in Style

A lot of houses have smaller bedrooms and putting two beds in the same room isn’t always feasible. Particularly for children as it leaves no space to play. Bunk Beds are normally the only way of maximising space. When I was younger I used to love going to my Aunties house because my brother and I used to get to sleep in a bunk bed. I thought this was so much fun. Now as an adult I see that a bunk bed is the perfect way to sleep more than one child in a bedroom. I have spoken to a couple of fellow bloggers that have bunk bed’s. They have spoken to me about how bunk beds are important to save space. Lynne from A Day In The Life Of A Mum of 6 told me that she has 6 children in a 4 bedroom house. She said ‘ My girls are… View Post

Is Your Child Safe On Social Media?

The internet is an amazing place, it opens a world of opportunities. Children can learn, create and connect with friends and family. I think most parents worry when their children venture onto social media, especially with all the cyber bullying and online predators you read about. As a parent it is my job to look after my children at home. It is also a parents job to make sure they are safe when they use social media. As adults we are usually able to protect ourselves. We know how to protect our privacy and know when something isn’t right. Often Children don’t. It’s not a conversation you normally consider having. But when children venture onto the internet and social media, as a parent you are responsible to make sure they aware of the real dangers of the internet. They need to be aware that what ever they put online is… View Post

Learning with Education Quizzes – Review

With the summer school holidays coming to a close. I am aware that it has been a long time since E has done any school work. It is easy for children to forget everything they have been taught over the last year. Because of this, is it sometimes important to have a quick recap over the work from the last year. Education Quizzes is a great website for practicing and learning. After being told about Education Quizzes I was keen to get E to have a go at some of the quizzes. E loves learning for which we are lucky. She is a bright young girl who does well at school, however we know she struggles with her maths. So I thought I would let her have a go at some of the KS1 maths quizzes for pupils. There are at least 100 different maths quizzes covering different topics. The quizzes… View Post

Win a £500 Voucher with Rattan Direct

I love having a nice large garden for the kids to play in. When we started looking to buy a house one of the important requisites was that it had a decent garden. The only down side to a garden is the gardening, neither of us have green fingers. But after looking at the mess for a few years we have started to sort out the garden. We want it to be a safe place for the children to play but somewhere that looks good and is a haven to relax. What we really need is some lovely outdoor furniture. Somewhere we can sit as a family to eat and relax. And somewhere where I can drink a nice cold glass of wine on a warm summers evening. To celebrate the beauty of gardens in the summer months – when the sun shines. Rattan Direct are running a fantastic competition… View Post
