Mini Primark Haul

What do you do when you don’t feel your best? You shop. You shop for things you need but more importantly, you shop for things you don’t. And if you’re lucky, you shop for the last spotty jumper you saw from Brummymummyof2. Yes!…

DITL: Potty Woes & Tantrums

A little Day In The Life video! It is fairly bog standard. Breakfast, lunch, school run, one child soiling themselves all day and the other constantly crying, pizza picnic* and me nearly losing my little mind come bedtime. This is essentially our daily routine for the weekdays. Bar shopping, that was a rarity but I needed to save my sanity. Good excuse right? *I realise this wasn’t healthy but hey, life isn’t perfect is it? And no, neither kid ate…

Eliminate Hate

Across the world we have dedicated a number of days showing love and awareness for various things. Today for instance is World Down Syndrome Day and World Poetry Day. But more importantly, for me (and this doesn’t take away from the importance of any of the other days), today is the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.…

Cook With Me: Easy Meatloaf

This week’s Cook With Me video showcases Tobyandroo’s easy meatloaf! Seriously the most easy and tasty meatloaf I’ve had in years. Even my picky 3 year old loved it (once I convinced her it was a burger without a bun, weirdo.) **Apologies my head is cut off, I didn’t have time to test the camera positioning!** You can find the full recipe on the Tobyandroo blog: http://www.tobyandroo.com/easy-meatlo… Make sure you check out Tobyandroo’s channel for great videos and @tobyandroo on…

Newlife Haul & Try On!

Who doesn’t love a good haul? My favourite place to do a haul without breaking the bank is at a charity shop called Newlife. You can get brand name and high street fashion for a fraction of the price. So you get good garb while helping out disabled children and their families. What’s not to love? Shopping is my second outlet for stress and a bit of therapy (after cooking of course). Expect to see plenty of hauls in the…

Why I Love The School Run

Growing up, I was never the atypical little girl. I hated wearing dresses and 9 times out of 10 I would play with Hot Wheels over Barbie (but oh em gee did I love my Playskool Dollhouse. Holy hell). As a teen I followed the more “punk rock” lifestyle. I played sports rather than dabbling in makeup. It’s no surprise that, as a mom, I don’t really follow along with the norm. I don’t do baby classes or playgroups, crafts…

How I Do It: Getting Ready With Kids

It can be really hard to get ready with two kids in tow. Some days are harder than others, but here is how I manage! Some days I can get it done in 10 minutes and others it will take me over 30 minutes. It really depends on whether the kids will play ball or if my husband is there to help. Typically, I will put CBeebies on the telly with some toys on the bed to help keep them…

A Letter To My Kids This Mothers Day

Before I had kids, I dreamed of my Mothers Day being like the ones in the adverts. I’m in bed with more pillows than is required, fresh bouquet of spring flowers on the side table, a dog curled up and asleep by my feet, my children are next to me in bed with breakfast on a tray and we’re all laughing and smiling. In reality, I’ll be in bed trying to get comfortable on a pillow that is forever going…
