Special Day Countdown Calendar A Review & Giveaway

When WOW recently told me about a new range of calendars they have out I have to say I was rather excited by the concept.  Having a 4-year-old that is so excitable sometimes makes waiting for something hard to bear … after all there are in fact only so many times you can answer the same countdown questions.  Christmas as a countdown and I love it, I think counting down to […]

Parents, Periods & Possible Meltdowns 12

Right off the bat I have to say … I fear I might be the one with the meltdown occurring.  When I signed up to parenthood it never really occurred to me that one day I would end up with a hormonal teen … and one in which I would have to support through the joyous period talks.  HELP!  From an early age I tried to engage chat with Beth […]

Our eczema story with Joshua started only a few weeks into his life with patchy sore legs and the crooks of his elbows.  Throughout the last few years we have tried just about everything going for his eczema from oats in a pair of tights in the bath .. yes really!  It has been a super hard slog in terms of Joshua’s skin but we have made some massive breakthroughs […]
