Our Bonfire weekend {including a video}


Life has been a little manic lately, so I haven’t posted on here in a few weeks. I’ve been keen to share with you details of what we got up to for Bonfire weekend, but I’ve really been struggling to get a bit of time to write this post. As I mentioned about a month ago, I’m keen to trying…

Weight loss

Struggling with Slimming World – weight loss update


For the past four weeks I’ve been following the Slimming World plan and as a result I’ve lost 2lbs. Although you can eat a lot on the plan, I’m just finding that for me it just isn’t working fast enough. I was following it really rigidly too, so the lack of results was really frustrating me! When I’m trying to…

Vlogging

First steps into the vlogging world


A few months ago I set myself some blogging goals, which I shared on here. One of those goals was to start vlogging. Some of my favourite bloggers also do some great vlogs, which have really inspired me. Also, as my blog is about capturing our memories as a family, using video is a perfect way to ensure we do this.…

Festive Party Dresses

Party Dresses for the Festive Season


Christmas is slowly creeping up on us. This year I’m trying to be particularly organised as we are going on holiday at the end of November. As well as trying to get my Christmas shopping done as early as possible, I’ve also been having a browse around for party dresses. During December we have a few Christmas parties to attend and…

Stop

The parenting rollercoaster – stop the ride I want to get off!


As a mum of three, including 3 year-old twins, I often get asked “How do you do it?”. If I’m brutally honest, somedays I really don’t know! Recently I’ve been finding this whole parenting lark hard. Really hard. All three of our children seem to waking up before 6am, particularly at weekends. Plus the twins, Heidi especially, are taking the…

Slimming World Meals

Slimming World update


A couple of weeks ago I posted about my plans to start following the Slimming World plan. I’m now on week three, so thought it was time to post an update. The first week I found quite easy. I ate LOTS! I was, however, a little disappointed to find that I’d only lost 1lb. Once I’d had a think about…

House

How an Estate Agent Can Help a Renter


A few of my friends currently rent their houses and the other day I was having a chat with them about how although they are happy with renting for now, in the long-term they really want to buy there own home, so are working towards that goal. I was giving them some advice and thought I’d share it on here…

ChloBo Bracelet

Finding the perfect gift


It’s October already? That must mean it’s practically Christmas, and once the shops have emptied the last of their pumpkins, broomsticks and fake spiders, it’s time to think about all that present buying you need to do. It doesn’t matter how many people you have to buy for, this always seems like a stressful task as you try to improve…

Capturing our moments {August & September}


I’ve decided to start doing these roundup posts every other month now. Time seems to go so fast and I struggle to fit in writing them in once a month. The past couple of month’s have been pretty full on, so this post could take a while! I promise not to ramble on though. I’ll try and use photo’s rather…

Weight loss

Getting back on the weight-loss wagon with Slimming World


Since coming back from our summer holiday at the beginning of August, I’ve really struggled to lose the weight that I put on. I seem to lose a pound, only to put it back on the week after, which is very frustrating! At the end of November, we are going on holiday for my Mum’s 70th birthday and I’m determined…
