Top Tips For Work From Home Mums

I love working from home. I will never stop feeling grateful for the fact that I can earn my living from the comfort of these four walls. It’s freeing and I feel incredibly lucky. But that doesn’t mean that it comes without it’s own struggles. When you are working from home, especially if you are self employed, you have to be able to motivate yourself, you have to learn to manage your time and you have to create boundaries that enable you to differentiate between work time and family time. I’ve been juggling this work from home life around the children for a few years now so I thought I would share some tips for anyone who might need them right now. (more…)

Lockdown In Outfits With Femme Luxe

I feel like I can speak for a lot of the nation right now when I say that I am struggling with clothes. I’m never sure what to wear for life in lock down. If I stay in lounge-wear all day I feel unproductive and am much more likely to sit on the sofa eating biscuits, but equally I want to be comfortable! It’s been so lovely to collaborate with Femme Luxe over the last few weeks and I’ve picked up some pieces which have been perfect for this time but that I am also excited to wear once lock down is over. So here are a few of my current favourite things from Femme Luxe and how I’ll be wearing them both in and out of lock down: (more…)

Finding The Positives

The situation we are currently in is undeniably horrendous on a global, national and personal level. I have to say that now because I don’t want anyone to think I’m trivialising any of this. (You can catch up on my mind dump from the other day by clicking here). I’m also well aware of how fortunate we are to be healthy and at home. However we all have bad days and one thing that is really keeping me going throughout this situation is finding some positives in it all. For me, for my family, and for how I hope life will be going forward. I want to write them down now so that I can look back on this list in the futures and remember that it wasn’t all bad, and so I can see if any of my hopes have been fulfilled. (more…)

Parenting In A Pandemic

None of us expected to be parenting through a pandemic right now, or ever for that matter. It’s really not one of those things you ever think would happen and therefore it’s only natural that a lot of us are feeling quite far out of our comfort zone. Everyday we’re facing scary news headlines, worry for the health of our loved ones, missing our social interactions and a complete change to our routines. But on top of that we are also having to help our children through this. We have to try to explain to them why they can’t see their friends or their family, why they can’t go to school or the park and why everything has changed overnight. I know I’ve been worrying a lot about the effect this will have on them even once this is all over, Darcie is nearly four and very impressionable, so I’ve been thinking a lot about the best things to say to her about it all. The right things for her won’t be the right things for every child, because every child is different and therefore will be reacting to all of this differently. (more…)

The Royal Mint Kids Hub

We all need lots of ideas to entertain the kids at home right now, so this seems like the perfect time to write this post all about The Royal Mint Kids Hub. The Royal Mint make coins, and I’m sure you will have seen a lot of the special collectable ones over the years. We actually have a collection of The Peter Rabbit ones that were released when Darcie was a baby that  I decided I wanted to keep for her when she is older. There are so many collectable ranges that are so fun for kids to find and look after. Obviously this isn’t exactly the best time for coin collecting, but they do also have a special Kids Hub on their website that is full of fun and educational activities for a variety of different ages.
