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.

1. Must-have mustard

Lynda and Phillipa have noticed a surge in the number of people looking for mustard, ochre and terracotta homeware, especially soft furnishings…

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 →

Why I can’t bring myself to start potty training my toddler

Potty training my first child took 6 months! There were accidents all over the house, it was tiresome. It’s put me off potty training the second until he’s a bit older. What are you experiences with potty training?

The Mummy Bubble

I spend way too much time thinking about, talking about and doing stuff involving bowel movements and urine.

I wasn’t particularly thrilled at the prospect of handling another person’s poo and wee requirements when I was pregnant with my first but I really didn’t think it would be as huge a thing in my life as it has become.

Not a day goes by when me and my husband don’t have some kind of poo-related chat. We may occasionally make a casual comment on wee, but it’s poo that dominates the nappy chat.

Here are some of the things that happen as I find myself obsessing about my children’s messy output:

  • I know both children’s poo faces, and the faces/noises that precede that moment. Come to think of it I actually know when my toddler is pooping even when she’s out of view as she has a very quiet grunting…

Camp Bestival 2017 Review

Family festival – Camp Bestival. Mum’s review. Next year perhaps?

Dear Mummy Blog

Wet, Wet, Wet.

And we’re not talking about the band! Pop Stars and Rock Stars descended on Lulworth Castle for Camp Bestival 2017. Camp Bestival is the younger festival of Bestival and Common People. Every year hundreds of families enjoy a quality 4 day holiday to Lulworth Castle in Dorset, England. There are 6 main camping zones, Backstage Hospitality, Boutique, Camping Plus, Pre-Pitched, General Camping and Campervan fields.

Preparation is key for UK festivals!

People had been avidly checking the weather forecast in the lead up to the festival and thankfully having the super organised daddy that I have, we came prepared for the worse and hoped for the best. We were due for rain over the weekend and the worse weather Camp Bestival had seen in seven years!

What’s in a slogan?

It's just a T-Shirt? Right? I am inspired to write this after seeing a Tweet today about children's t-shirts in Morrisons. Innocent enough right? Wrong! In a nutshell, Shelley Roche-Jacques tweeted a picture of child t-shirts in Morrisons, as she was horrified by the messages: "Little Man, Big Ideas," "Little Girl, Big Smiles" and "King...
