Meal Planning Monday

I’ve been so busy lately that my meal planning has completely fallen by the wayside. I’m trying to get back to doing it regularly though as it does help me stick to my diet (when I bother doing that too of course). Armed with my new cookbook Nadia Sawalha’s Greedy Girl’s Diet Second Helpings, I’m… Read More

A Bit of an Update


Inspired by Cass over at The Diary of a Frugal Family, I thought I’d do a bit of an update post of my own. My blog is often rather neglected thanks to life kind of taking over and I haven’t written about the kids at all for quite a long time. So here it is… Read More

Mums and working

I’ve written about this subject before, way back when in 2010 I wrote a blog post about ‘Working mums vs stay at home mums‘ where I talked about my fondness for working in an office, getting out of the house and having something that made me ‘me’ rather than just someone’s mum.

Only in Spain: A Review

only in spain

This is quite possibly one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. I absolutely loved it. It called to the lover of travel within me, the chica who has herself lived in Spain and visited Seville, one of the cities mentioned in the book. I can understand the yearning to learn flamenco… Read More

Gamer Mum


Video gaming was once the preserve of geeks and grumpy, acne-dotted teenagers, whiling away their moments on games even the most laid back parent would find rather objectionable. A recent study by Harris Interactive discovered that a whole 68 percent of mums who were employed and 30 percent of homemakers enjoyed regularly having a sit… Read More
