Preparing For Nappy Free Nights With B-Sensible

Erin has been potty trained for a good few months and she’s at the stage where she is 99% free from any accidents now. However, she is still wearing nappies at night time as it’s quite unpredictable whether she will wake up dry or not. We have been thinking about preparing for nappy free nights for a little while now and will be taking steps to achieve this soon such as cutting down milk before bed. One thing that I was a bit worried about though was getting a mattress protector. I don’t know why but a lot of what

Why We Won’t Be Raising Erin To Believe In Santa

Erin was born on New Year’s Day so her birthday is only a week after Christmas. Erin’s first Christmas meant that she was nearly 1 and really didn’t understand anything about it so at this point, we hadn’t really made up our minds about what we were going to tell her. Now that she’s nearly 3 and going to nursery with other children, we have had to make a decision. Although I was brought up to believe in Santa I think I realised quite early on that he wasn’t real.

Afternoon Tea And Pamper Treat For Two With Red Letter Days

Being someone who is self-employed and works from home means having very little ‘me’ time. Don’t get me wrong, I have days where Erin is at nursery and John is at work so I have the house to myself but then I have work and cleaning to do. I have my nails done for special occasions only like going on holiday and I think I’ve had my hair done 2-3 times since Erin was born nearly 3 years ago. So, when Red Letter Days got in touch to see if I would like to test out one of their experiences,

Choosing Morocco As A Family Holiday Destination

John and I love to travel and while we haven’t been to the most adventurous destinations on offer yet, we do want Erin to grow up discovering new and exciting places with us. When it comes to booking holidays it can be all too easy to go for an easy option or to pick somewhere that’s well-known for being popular for families to travel to. However, there are loads of great places that you may not have thought of and one of them is Morocco which is in North Africa. The flight time is only around 4 hours from the

Home, Health And The Future

When John and I bought our house 4 and a half years ago we did so thinking it would be our forever home. I found the house buying process so stressful that I really don’t want to do it again for a very long and that’s partly why we bought somewhere that needs a lot of work doing to it that we can do over time. I could make a list a million miles long for what we need to do to our house right now and sometimes, it feels like it’s an impossible task to put everything in order

How Not To Get Caught Up In The Cost Of Christmas

Christmas is probably the most expensive time of year for most families but it really doesn’t need to be. The media is full of stories about families going into debt, paying for Christmas on credit and generally making it a big thing that they really can’t afford… myself being one of these people in the past. However, there’s really no need for Christmas to be all about how much you spend, and what on, so I thought I’d share some tips on how not to get caught up in the cost of Christmas. Budgets If we were still buying presents

We’re Only Having One Child… And That’s Absolutely Fine!

It seems like my social media feeds are full of pregnancy and newborn babies at the moment and I am reading loads of blog posts about second children. I love seeing other blogger’s huge announcements and squishy new babies but at the same time it makes me realise that the questions about us having another child probably aren’t going to stop any time soon. The thing is, we won’t be having any more children and we’re more than happy just to have Erin. People seem to think that a family isn’t complete until children have siblings to play with but
