    Rum’s Pethood Story – Sponsored by Petplan

    This post is in conjuction with Petplan but all thoughts are my own. ADVERTISEMENT I’ve never made a secret of my love for my dog, Rum. In fact, he’s probably the best friend I’ve ever had. I’ve written blog posts about him before and he even has his own Instagram page where he’s slowly building a loyal following of people who love him just as much as I do. Our relationship began in October 2015. My family was going through a particularly rocky time. We needed something positive to focus on and it happened when a family friend called and said that her dog, Tiegan, had just given birth to…

    Everlast Rocketbooks – Review and Giveaway

    I don’t know if all writers feel this way, but I am totally in love with stationery. My house is full of it. I probably have way too much. One item in particular that I completely obsess over is notebooks. You can never have enough in my opinion and I’ve tried so many different kinds, from the budget ones, to cutesy fashion notebooks to expensive artisan types. They’re all good in my opinion. Since becoming a student and starting to take blogging seriously, I’ve been looking for notebooks that offer a little more than just a piece of paper to write on. I’ve tried some smart notebooks before and been…

    What Will Your Kids Be Doing In Summer 2019?

    It’s approaching that time again when the schools are finishing up for summer and up here in Scotland, that’s going to be happening very soon. In fact, it’s going to be next Friday! I can’t wait to spend more time with my son. That’s one thing I don’t understand about other parents and can’t relate to; they complain about the summer holidays and are desperate for their kids to go back to school. I don’t feel that. In fact, I’m really excited about all the fun things that we’re going to do together over the seven week break. Despite starting a new job, I’ll still have plenty of time to…

    Getting Organised Again!

    Yesterday, I started a new job. It’s a new chapter in my life. I don’t know exactly how long this chapter is going to last. It might be a short one, or it might last a bit longer, but for now, all I can do is go with the flow. Going from being a work-at-home mum to being a working mum again is a bit of a culture shock though. I’ve had to start wearing make-up during the day again, even when I don’t want to, and wearing heels. My legs are aching in places I had not expected today and it’s all down to the tiny two-inch heel I…

    Love Your Tummy With Rennies

    DISCLAIMER:┬áThis post is an advertisement for Rennie but is based on my own story and opinions. Advertisement I’m not one for oversharing these days, but some bodily functions are worth discussing and today I want to write a blog post about heartburn. It’s a complaint that I’ve suffered with occasionally over the years. Most episodes of heartburn have been brief and mild but in 2010 I had a pretty lengthy period of indigestion that lasted a few weeks. I did a lot of reading up on the topic then and learned how to look after my digestive health. It’s honestly really important because having a stomach complaint can seriously impact…
