Athena + Arlo – January 2019

Another year of ‘Siblings’ photo diaries starts. I often find these a little tricky to write if I’m honest but will always continue to do them because looking back through the photos makes me smile and makes me happy! Here’s the kids in January 2016 (the photos are blurry but they are so small, and Arlo wears the PJs that Athena is wearing now!)   I try and record the kids’ relationship with each other but…

Home Storage Solutions with Addis

I know it’s a bit of a cliche but I do plan on getting a bit more organised this year (and yes, I’ve probably made this vague resolution more than a few times in the past!) but I made a start last year in other areas of our home, but had never really done much in the kitchen. Addis recently sent me a few very handy home organisation products to help me get sorted and…

Review: Braun Silk Epil 9 Epilator SkinSpa

One of the irritating things about being female is that most of us don’t particularly want to be strolling about with hairy armpits, legs and everything else. Yes, societal norms dictate that we remove it, although obviously it’s down to personal choice,  but I do prefer to remove it. I’ve had one not very pleasant experience of waxing (I bled – not sure what went wrong!) and found it messy and time consuming for results…

Style: Gant Chelsea Boots

Finding a pair of comfy, durable, stylish winter boots is always a task and a half. Will they rub? How high is the heel? Will they cope with wet weather? The list goes on, and considering I do a fair amount of walking so although how a pair of boots looks is important to me they need to be comfy first and foremost. Just after Christmas I was sent a pair of boots from GANT…

#Saturday6: Things I wish my kids didn’t do

Welcome to Saturday 6, a new feature where every Saturday (or most of them, at least!) I’ll be sharing a list of six things about anything at all! Things I love, books I’ve read, observations, anything at all in a list of six basically. I think it’s a great way to write more personal posts, fit things in I want to rant or talk about that don’t really fit anywhere else or even list six…

My Top Seven of 2018

I’m still very much in a ‘I know this year has started but I am not ready to accept it and still very much reflecting on last year’ phase because I’ve not quite decided on my goals for the year yet am also still firmly in the ‘sloth’ frame of mind when it comes to work too. I was tagged in the ‘Top 7 Tag’ and it seemed like a lovely way to try and…

It could be personal memories, blogging related, or anything else!…

Me and Mine in December 18

Here’s our last monthly family photo of the year… I’m keeping the first one in because I love that Athena has her eyes closed! We took these a couple of days ago on our way home from Norfolk, at a country park just off the M25 somewhere, that also happened to have a fair an elf garden! We spent a lot of time exploring outdoor places over the past month and thankfully it’s not yet…
