Hello September!

Sitting here and writing a Hello September post seems mental! August feels like it has flown by but then when I look back at all we have done I don’t know how we fit it into one month.

But sometimes it is good to just step back and enjoy the time you have with loved ones. I am in the very fortunate position to do what I do for…

Lottie’s Last Year At Nursery

I can’t believe this time next week Lottie will be back at nursery and it will be her last year before starting big school! It’s going to be the end of an era for us as we’ve been going back and forth to that nursery for years; all the girls have attended at one point or another and we have such a great relationship with all the staff.

I didn’t intend on taking a break; I thought I would still be tweeting and instagraming my socks off but when it came to it I just didn’t fancy it. Usually on trips or weekends away I am constantly taking photos or filming ready to share…

A Girls Holiday & The Mum Guilt..

I read a post today on the Huffington post. By the title I knew it wasn’t a wise read – Why Was I Shamed For Having A Girlie Mini-Break Without My Kids? written by Luisa Zissman (did the apprentice a few years back). I knew it wasn’t a wise read because on Saturday I am doing just this; going on a girls holiday and leaving my children at home. As we edge closer to the big day the mum guilt has started to hit me. Reading that a mum was shamed for a girls trip away just made my insecurities come to the…
