• 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. I didn’t just like to stick to the readily available templates, layouts and fonts, I used to gin download packs where I could ensure I was putting out something different and more unique. 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…

  • Rediscovering our local area in lockdown

    I still find it hard to comprehend what the past 11 weeks or so have brought and I haven’t wrote about it. The Worldwide change that has happened and the absolute Catastrophic devastation caused by the virus. 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. At first when my husband was furloughed and both boys where at home, I was so frustrated at coming home from work in the hospital, to being surrounded by the stringent nothingness. I wanted to get out, get away, drive off. Anything – just because we couldn’t. It…

  • 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…

  • 2 hour easy bread. No knead and delicious

    I once had a bread maker and made bread twice. Twice. Things are going to change with this 2 hour easy bread though! Cooking and baking are two things I adore, yet I have never made actual, homemade bread. It always seems too long to wait for, too much of a hassle and too many ingredients that I don’t have. 2 hour easy bread Well actually it’s super easy, super fast and the only ingredient that I don’t readily have is yeast (this even uses just regular plain flour!) It’s also really good for kids to get in and make with you, the dough is quite forgiving as Dexter manhandled…
