I don’t know about you but I’ve always found the travel days the most stressful due to various reasons. You find yourself rushing around, trying to squeeze a few more rides in, buy a few more pins and rush onto whatever mode of transport you decided on. We actually decided to have a chilled out, no rush, take it as it comes. So this is our Disneyland Paris Trip Report – Day 4.
It’s hard dealing with your own mental health, sometimes it’s easy to take our little ones for granted. This week is Children’s Mental Health Week and it did get me thinking. ‘When was the last time I considered my children’s mental health?
I don’t know about you but I find February and March to be the best time for that all-important job search, whether its a full career change, a step up or you are about to finish your studies and it’s time to think about the next step. Where do you even begin? So I thought I would write a post on Being an Intern Over 30! My Top Ten Tips for a Successful Internship or work experience.
It’s hard to explain the feeling of being told that your baby is ill and not just your average cold but life-threatening, the closest I can describe it is numb. Everything stands still and for a brief moment it feels like your life is at a standstill, it’s not real. You are having a bad dream and any minute your alarm will sound and normality will resume. Have you ever heard of Strep B? This us our story.
If your past year was rough and you felt like it simply could not get any worse, at least you had January to look forward to. The month of fresh starts and new beginnings, the month where you can finally get the gears turning in making things better and having them go your way – the right way but why do we feel the need for new beginnings in January?
For those of you who don’t know, it is ‘Blue Monday’ on Monday 20th!

Here are my tips on How to Survive the 101 days of January.
Being overweight is nothing new to me. I’ve spent most of my adult life overweight. But two years ago I got into the obese territory and with a current BMI of 34.3, I have attempted to do something about it. Sadly it didn’t go so well so I thought I’d give you my story. My weight loss battle and what I’ve learnt about dieting.
The South West of England is known as the English Rivera, mainly because of its mild weather and beautiful beaches. This is why we should all be having weekend breaks in Cornwall.
Happy New Year! Wow, the end of yet another decade and the start of what hopefully will be a good year. I ended 2009 a working mum of one and by early 2010, I was pregnant with our little monster. What a decade it has been. This post is What Happened in December with a mini look over the last 10 years.
It’s hard to believe that on the 18th January 2020, my blog will be a year old! It’s been a rollercoaster of a year both personally and professionally. I wanted to write so much more and plan so much more content but blogging is a bit of a mind field. However, I do feel more prepared for the next year and beyond. This post is Blogging: Looking to 2020 and beyond.
How can it be December? I mean last time I checked it was April and I was counting down the days until our summer holiday, now the Christmas countdown has begun! It’s not exactly Blogmas, but I thought I’d have a little change of pace today. This is what happened in November.

Welcome to Blogmas 4: Is the traditional nativity play a thing of the past? As we near the end of another decade, it got me thinking about the traditions that seem to be fading. Nativity plays, carol singing, Christmas cards they all seem to be a thing of the past, with schools looking for alternatives, people donating to charities (I’m all for it) rather than giving Christmas cards but are we losing touch with our history?
Welcome to Blogmas Day 3. Today, I thought I would share with you top five must-watch Christmas movies available on Netflix in 2019. If you aren’t aware of Netflix and all its delights it is essentially an app that you can stream movies or television shows for a monthly subscription.

I’ve made it my mission this year to check out UK based attractions and write about how accessible they are to a special needs child. Thomas is a child who not only has challenging and unpredictable behaviour. In September, we visited Paultons Park near Romsey to answer the question of how accessible is Paulton’s Park/Peppa Pig World?
Back to school is never an easy transition. New classes, new teachers, remembering to go to a different classroom and that’s just the parents! This year saw Alana embark on year eight and Thomas embark on year four which also makes him a badger.

As previously mentioned during our visit in 2015, I made no plan! We winged it and in all honesty, it was fine we didn’t have the green pass at that point so it can be done. However, after checking out the Disneyland Paris for Brits group on facebook I was inspired to make at least a rough plan for our trip.
Back in July, I posted ‘What Happened in July’. It’s something that I feel I want to continue with for the few months. I do have plans to grow it into more of an email newsletter type thing but for now please check out What Happened In August. The summer holidays, Disneyland Paris, family time and blogging.

This is usually our annual summertime holiday in July, but this year we had squeezed in an overdue trip to Disneyland Paris! This is my review.

The one week of the month I feel sorry for myself, I hate my body, I hate my skin, nothing fits properly, nothing I do feels comfortable and I hate that every month I am required to walk around in what feels like an adult nappy. It’s tough being a woman! It’s also tough being a man but at least they can choose if they want to shave every day and it is socially acceptable if they decide not to. I thought I would share with you why I dread my period and my top five tips for surviving them!
