Going Quackers at the Duck Race, Overton

We missed this event but there is nothing quite like good old honest traditional fun and duck racing is just that! This local Hampshire event sounded like a great day out with kids.

Dear Mummy Blog

Dear Mummy, we took our rubber ducks out of the bath water and into the River Test for the annual Duck Race in Overton, Hampshire. The “Great Overton Duck Race” is run to raise funds for St Mary’s Hall.

Overton Duck Race Review

It began as a one-off event, but has since become something of an annual occurrence, raising in excess of £12,000 for the hall’s facilities so far. A whole day of sitting and playing down by the river on the bank holiday sounds like a very relaxing activity. It was also a special day as it was my mummy’s birthday.

Overton Duck Race

We set off early to find a clearing by the side of the bank to lay out our picnic blanket and camping chairs. In our eagerness we were the first family there and watched the organisers time trial the ducks on the water. I also took the opportunity to road test…well water test…

5 tips for autumnal home decoration

This is one of my favourite blogs and I love the simple home decorating ideas. Hope you enjoy.

Hello Hygge

This year we’ve seen some amazing interiors trends, from my absolute favourite colour, blush pink (I promise I liked it before it became known as ‘millennial pink’!) to copper, and tropical prints for days (I’m looking at you, pineapples, palm leaves and flamingos!). But now we’re sneaking into autumn, the trends are changing, and I wanted to know what’s going to be big in the months ahead.

I dropped into Brighton’s independent interiors boutique Abode Living in my lunch break to meet owners Lynda and Phillipa and find out more about what we can expect to see on our walls, floors, sofas and tables in the coming months, and with their help, I’ve identified five key trends for you to bring into your own home.

Reasons I Hate Being A Housewife!

I read an article recently saying we’d be happier paying to outsource jobs rather than buying things. If I could pay for someone to pick up after my children, cook our meals, vacuum, wipe down the high chair, change nappies etc etc I WOULD!! I love being a mummy but being a housewife is not so great!

Mom Of Two Little Girls

I am a housewife, SAHM, whatever you want to call me. I’ve written a lot about how grateful I am to my husband that we can afford for me to be available to my family whenever they need me. If you want to read more about my life as a SAHM, you can read my guest post on The Tale Of Mummyhood: Mum Is Best series.

Just in case though: “Thank you my love, I’m very grateful, as I’m sure are you.”

Also, just in case … yes, I realise that working moms do all this AND going to work. Well done you guys! I’m actually jealous! I’d love to get away from all those tasks and do something with my day that actually feels meaningful and appreciated whilst also contributing financially to my family. You guys rock!

Dinosaur obsessed

I was wondering when it would happen, the wacky toddler obsessions, when all they want is a particular kind of toy and everything in their life revolves around it. I was relieved when Peppa Pig failed to fully grab the imagination of my daughter, she still enjoyed Peppa Pig World, has a few Peppa toys... Continue Reading →
