The Girl With The Perfect Make-Up

I’m now pretty close to 32 and just recently I have been thinking about the old me; the me back when I was a teenager or in my early 20s. I was most certainly a very different person than I am now in my 30s. It’s funny how certain things in life change and how they affect who you are. I used to be the girl with the perfect make-up. When I was a teenager I would get up at the crack of dawn to do my hair and make-up ready for school. I wasn’t one of the popular crowd

The Truth About Child Free Time And Loneliness

As we don’t really have family close by that we are close to, Erin has never really had a babysitter or been away from me or John since she was born. This means that Erin has been with me every day for the majority of her life and I had no child free time. While I didn’t go back to the full time job I had when I became pregnant, I did go to work in a supermarket part time for 3 evenings a week when Erin was 9 months old. It really wasn’t for me though and I quit

What Your Shower Curtain Says About You

Your bathroom may be one of the most private rooms in your house, but sooner or later your friends are going to be in there for one reason or another, and the last thing you want is them getting the wrong impression about you or your family home. One way to tell a lot about a person? Their shower curtain, believe it or not. But what does your shower curtain say about you? A plain shower curtain, or one with a slight amount of patterning, works best as part of a basic bathroom look. It shows that you enjoy a

An Early Valentine’s Meal With Buy A Gift

With Valentine’s Day falling on a Thursday this year it means that John will be working and Erin will be at nursery so I’ll be spending the majority of the day on my own. So, when Buy A Gift got in touch to talk to us about their experiences perfect for Valentine’s Day we picked a three course meal at Prezzo to enjoy ourselves. My sister nicely offered to take Erin to the bowling alley in Norwich to play on the arcades while John and I shared our very first child free meal in two years! When you order an

Let’s Go PJ Masks: New DVD Out Now

A little while ago you may remember us posting about the first ever PJ Masks DVD. Well, they’re back with a second DVD called Let’s Go PJ Masks. Erin absolutely loved watching the first DVD and she really took a shining to all of the characters. If you haven’t come across PJ Masks yet then here’s what it’s all about! By day, 6 year olds Connor, Amaya and Greg go to school like everyone else. But when something goes awry in the city, these special kids, filled with curiosity and a sense of justice get ready for their mission – but they have

London: A City Worth Exploring

Over the years John and I have been to London quite a few times. Last year we went at least 4 or 5 times. Even though Erin is only 2 we want her to experience different places in the UK, especially cities as diverse as London. We only have one trip planned this year for a day before we go on holiday in April but we have a lifetime to see as many things as possible. So, with that, I wanted to talk a bit about some of the things I want to do in London on our next few

Introducing The Vorwerk Kobold Cleaning System

Just recently we have been super lucky as we have been sent some great vacuum cleaners to use. Having only ever really owned cheap models and never being completely impressed I am always looking at what other machines can do and comparing them. Something I had never heard of before though was the Vorwerk Kobold VK200. Not only had I not heard of the machine but I hadn’t heard of the brand before. When I was asked if I would like a trial of the machine I was definitely interested and quite quickly said yes. The Vorwerk Kobold VK200 is quite
