Another winter is going to be knocking on our door soon. As a parent that always did beyond the maximum for my kids I am setting up a mission called the best hand to keep you warm is mom’s hands. My mission was to make Christmas jumpers for my kids, to some this is not big challenge but to me it is the first time I am jumping into jumpers. (more…)

Living in the UK has its upsides and unfortunately, has its downsides. With young kids tugging at the apron strings, a long list of household chores and a 40-hour work week, being a working mom is no easy feat. But it sure is possible. With the right list of priorities and the help of a reputable au pair agency in London, the juggling act can be easier. Here’s how. (more…)

It’s that time of year again! Christmas is just around the corner and the shops are full of harassed looking people scurrying to get all their presents ahead of the big day. Whether you’re one of them (me!) or one of the smug ones who had it all wrapped up weeks ago, a little novelty factor always put’s the finishing touches on Christmas. Here’s a quick run-down of my favourite funny stocking fillers for the men in your life. (more…)

Parenting is one of the hardest experiences you’ll ever go through in life. If it isn’t the hardest, it ranks pretty far up there considering it’s an ongoing experience that doesn’t end when your child turns 18. Even though the hardest years of parenting might be behind you at that point, you’ll still have those late nights where your daughter calls you because she and her boyfriend just broke up. You’ll still have excruciatingly painful experiences, as well as moments of the purest kind of joy when your son or daughter gets married, or you see your grandchild for the first time. (more…)

Starting university can be really tough, especially if you don’t have any financial support from your family. Making your student loan and, if you’re eligible, maintenance grant stretch as far as possible is a real art in itself. Upon looking on other websites, it has become pretty clear that people like to understate the real cost of some quite essential items, such as bills, nights out and rent, so I decided to make my own, more realistic budgeting guide. The first thing that you can do, is forget about the £9,000 per year that you are ‘paying’ for tuition, you’ll probably never end up paying it back in its entirety anyway, so don’t worry about it. The rest, well, you should probably put some real thought into. If you are subject to a rather strict financial situation, then you’re going to have really budget your way through uni, whilst still getting the maximum experience at the same time. (more…)

Little rant before I start this article: I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m getting a little sick of the changeable weather. Don’t get me wrong, I love the sunny days, especially as they make life so much easier in the summer holidays, but this whole rain-in-the-morning, glorious-sunshine-in-the-afternoon thing is getting old, least of all because I never know what to wear in the morning! And the rain today; atrocious. (more…)

We all have different personalities, and so, it is only natural that we all enjoy doing different things. While some of us love to go for a run or hit the gym, others prefer to spend the morning cooking or engrossed in a good book. And, that’s fine. (more…)

Christmas is, without a shadow of a doubt, my favourite time of year. I love hearing carols all-too-early in the shops, the cheesy Christmas adverts, the excuse to splurge on special food and choosing decorations for the tree. Basically, I’m a bigger kid when it comes to Christmas than either of my little girls!

But however much you enjoy Christmas, it does bring with it a lot of stress, and I’m always looking to ways to reduce this. In a way, I guess I’m fine-tuning Christmas! For example, last year, instead of braving the supermarket for our big Christmas shop (present-shopping I love, food-shopping I hate, even when it does come with carols!), I ordered everything online and had it delivered.
