Tiger Sheds Grow Along

A little over a month ago I was invited to take part in a fun project with Tiger Sheds to grow our very own lettuce in the garden with the kids and track our progress each week. I knew this would be something the kids would love we’ve done bits of gardening before and they just love getting mucky and helping me. One slight problem is we hadn’t actually managed to keep anything alive so we took the challenge and I explained to the girls they really must remember to water the lettuce everyday or mummy is going to be very…

Switching off and unwinding

I love my blog – like really love my blog, I see it as an extension of me. A place for all my grumbles and random musings, a place to record our lives and the crazy journey of parenthood we are on. BUT big but after a year of going for it and devoting a hell of a lot of time to it I started to feel myself burn out, something I love so much was feeling a little bit like a chore at times. Which is when I knew I needed to take a little bit of time out…
