5 Ways To Look After Your Garden In Winter

AD – This post is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own.  Over the past week or so the temperatures have really dropped and we have even seen a little bit of snow down here in Norfolk. Something I think we tend to forget about a little bit at this time of year is the garden. For us, we don’t go out there nearly as much during the winter and I know we could do more to keep it in better shape. Here are some ideas for how to look after your garden in winter.

Encouraging Inquisitive Minds With Tinpo

AD – This is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own.  We’re not a family that limits screen time however, we do try to make sure Erin watched some educational shows and plays games that will help her learn. Erin is quite an active 3 year old and would happily run around like a lunatic all day but I personally think that children need downtime and if that means sitting and watching a cartoon, then I’m okay with that. Erin not only tends to get up quite early but she also comes from from nursery just wanting to sit

What We Look Forward To Most About Trips Away

AD – This is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own.  It’s no secret that as a family, we love holidays and trips away. It’s not just me and John though; Erin is always asking when we’re going on holiday again and where we’re going to. As I never had many holidays or weekends away growing up this is something both John and I are keen to make sure Erin experiences. We might have created a monster actually. I love that she gets so excited about going somewhere new. Just a few days ago I posted about trying to

What To Look For In Your Ideal Wedding Venue

AD – This is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own.  Christmas and New Year is well and truly over and it’s time to start looking forward to other, more exciting events! Wedding season will be in full swing soon and I have recently been showing Erin pictures from our wedding from back in 2013. She loves seeing pictures of things we’ve done and she especially loves our wedding photos because they’re so beautiful. This, in part, was due to the location of where we got married. We got married abroad and although our choice of venue was not

5 Tips For Moving House With Children

Moving can be a really stressful time no matter who you’re moving with or when. I think moving house is said to be one of the most stressful situations in an adult’s life and even more so if you are buying rather than renting. I have moved quite a few times since I was 18 and I can quite honestly say that buying our house was one of the most difficult times that I can remember and now that I’ve done it once, I don’t know that I would ever want to do it again. We bought our house while it

Where To Go On A Winter Family Holiday

Disclaimer: This is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own.   It’s no secret that I like holidays. I like talking about them, I like researching them and most importantly, I like going on them! This year we have been very lucky to have been able to go on 3 very different holidays this year but something I have never done is to go on a winter holiday. I think this has probably been down to the jobs I’ve had in the past and always being so busy from September to Christmas. With that in mind, I’ve been looking recently

How To Have A Beautiful Garden In Winter

When we moved into our house around 4 and a half years ago we knew that the garden needed attention quite quickly. The previous owners left it in such a mess that we needed 3 skips to clear the junk and then we had to have a landscaper to level the whole of the garden. For the first couple of months I loved it. We had a beautiful big lawn and so much space compared to what it was before because it was very neat and tidy. I was so in love with our new garden and I wanted to

How To Look After Your Gut Health This Christmas

Disclaimer: This is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own.   As a nation it would seem that we can go overboard when it comes to Christmas. This might be in how much we spend on presents, how many times we go for a night out or maybe it’s how much we eat. I will be the first to admit that, as a family, we most certainly over indulge when it comes to food. Last year we had family stay over Christmas and our house was so full of food that we still had loads left over into the New
