5 Achievable Steps To A Healthier New Year

I have to be completely honest and say that I am not the healthiest person. The thing is, when you have a busy life, children, a partner who works a lot and a million other things going on, being really fit and healthy just isn’t realistic. With that in mind I wanted to post some ideas for being fitter and healthier this new year but in ways that are actually achievable. Portion size If you’re looking to lose a bit of weight this year but find it impossible to diet then there are other things you can do. I am

A New Year With Big Changes

This time last year I was writing about Erin’s first day at nursery and wondering how the hell I was going to cope not having her at home with me every day like normal. The settling in sessions and those first few weeks were absolutely heartbreaking for both of us. Erin ran off to explore on her settling in days but when it came to dropping her off for full nursery days she screamed, cried and clung to me for dear life. I spent most of the time walking home crying and feeling lost in a quiet house when I

Why I Won’t Be Making Resolutions This New Year

I’m not sure I’ve ever really made proper resolutions in the traditional sense but for the past few years I have made goals for both the family and for work.

10 Ways To Beat The Post Christmas Blues

Up until this year I don’t think I’ve ever really felt the post Christmas blues. Life has always just gone on and with the exception of 2016, I have always been working over the holiday season. This is my first full year of being self-employed and I had a lovely couple of weeks off over Christmas. We had family staying for Christmas and a fantastic New Year and 2nd birthday for Erin but I hated John going back to work on 2nd January. Before Christmas we had my sister staying with us so it had been quite a long time since it

How To Keep Your Blog Organised In The New Year

Wow, it’s now 2018 and this year will be my first full year being self-employed. Technically, I was self-employed for all of 2017 but I also worked in a supermarket until the end of the summer. Working from home full time is quite a lot of pressure as I have to earn a certain amount each month to keep up. Keeping on top of everything is a hell of a lot of work so here are some ways to keep your blog organised in the New Year. Technology It would be lovely to stay that working from home means being
