    Just over a week and a bit into the new “back to school” routine since CoVid madness and we drove down the M5 to Devon cliffs. Devon cliffs We all love the sea and any time spent near the ozone air and lapping of the waves is enough to satisfy us, so we trundled down on the Friday night after the first full week of school and took residence at Devon cliffs Holiday park. we have been here before, it’s a perfect caravan site and had easy access to the beach, we worried earlier in the year it would be cancelled like our trip to Norfolk, but thankfully we got…

  • How our home adapts to kids and pets

    Our family is quite big, as well as the four of us humans there are also five fur babies – two dogs and three cats. We discovered long ago that to keep some harmony (and sanity!) we would need to make adjustments within our four walls to keep things tidy, hygienic and easy to maintain. Layout Ok so this is was already a feature of our home, but one we had always wanted – a kitchen that backed onto the back garden rather than the front garden. Simply for the fact that muddy wellingtons, mucky paws and tiny little cat feet are in and out all the time so to…

  • Ad – Fun ways to get kids to brush their teeth

    I’ve found with both of my boys that initially, brushing their teeth was a mild obsession. They adored it and it became the must do activity, several times a day. But, as times goes on and the novelty wears off and the mornings of tearing my hair out over a “can you PLEASE just brush your teeth” argument gets more frequent. I love my teeth and have always looked after them well, so this has always been a massive factor in my parenting, look after your teeth, especially as their adult teeth are hiding under those baby milk teeth. Its been less of a battle lately because I have tried…

  • Finding the perfect font

    When I was at a college I studied A level media. This was a course I really enjoyed and excelled in, whilst also in a way paving and shaping my future blog. I loved being creative and trying different ways of putting out unique content.

Of course, the internet and software we have now is very different and we are spoilt for choice, but it is always nice to venture out and see what’s out there for…

To get through, and try and keep things normal, I’ve learned appreciate what we have and what’s around us – I’m sure like many people.

  • A helping hand from Bridgewood House Hotel and Canalside farm

    What I try and focus on during these tough timescale are the acts of selflessness and kindness that we are seeing everywhere. Its been so hard to see some of my colleagues and close friends in the most physically and emotionally destroying situations from sore blistered faces, getting ill themselves to staying away from their own families for long chunks of time to provide care to those who need it most whilst trying to keep their loved ones safe. This of course isn’t just in my place of work, but all over and in many different key worker roles. It is really hard to describe being scared and worried to…
