Celebrating Summer 2015 With A Trunki Suitcase Giveaway 2

The summer months have seen us tackle several far flung adventures and make some amazing memories as a family and while on those adventures  we have discovered an easier way to travel with our little fella and kerb his frustrations and for us by giving him his much craved independence he has become quite the happy traveller!  Joshua has loved having his own hand luggage not only on the 2 foreign […]

Water confidence

Learning A Life Skill – Water Confidence 3

A while ago I wrote about how Joshua thankfully had given in crying in the water and had instead come in leaps and bounds in the water .. So much so he voluntarily went in with the aid of his trusty rubber ring while we were on holiday in Tunisia.  So on our more recent holiday to Rhodes we were anxious to make sure that his confidence had not slipped […]


Why Men Should Be Able To Stay On The Maternity Ward 10

I recently read an article in the Daily Mail that claimed Mums feel vulnerable if men stay overnight in maternity wards and as the title suggest some ladies feel that’s inappropriate and the article is totally one-sided in my humble opinion.  and I will explain why …  In 2011 I had an elective section on medical grounds with the most amazing delivery, with understanding and considerate staff who I felt made […]

Online Dating … Was It For Me? 2

It’s no secret on my blog that for many years I was a single parent with my daughter Beth and that for many of those years I found myself on online dating sites. But how did I really find them? Well, in terms of adult conversation there were some interesting conversations and certainly some one-sided versions that could not have been repeated…. Thank goodness for the blocking option! But I guess that’s just […]

Topsy and Tim Go To The Zoo #LittleBigMoments 4

I am not sure exactly what it is about this cheeky pair but Topsy and Tim have captured Joshua’s heart for quite some time on Ceebies so when Ladybird Books asked us to take a look at the new Topsy and Tim books based on Little Big Moments that happen in life for little folks we got excited.  As my little guy has got bigger there are fewer firsts but it […]


Keeping Children Safe Online 1

For most parents who think of social media and their kids in the same sentence and it would be fair to say we shake in our boots. As children grow and social media is only ever going to increase in our children’s lives some recent information, about how little we as parents already know about our children’s online habits has to be the scariest thing I have read in a […]
