Lovely Features To Enhance Your Home

The Devil, it used to be said is in the details. And someone else said that the Devil has all the fun. I’m not too sure about that, but it is true that it is the details that make all the difference to a home. Sometimes we can get so carried away with the big picture, that we forget that it’s the smaller touches that can make a home or even a room shine. Why not have a look at what might work for you?

"A book is a gift that you can open again and again" – Garrison Keillor.

Both our kids were lucky enough to receive a mountain of books for Christmas. I took part in the book exchange on Facebook before Christmas, I bought them some books, they received some as gifts and we were sent some books to review.

No matter what happens in life there should always be money for books, and if you don't want to spend the money, then join a library. We would visit the library every Saturday as kids, and would spend a good hour choosing our books for the week. It really was the highlight of the weekend.

Our Weaning Journey ~Week

Hello, we are back with our Weaning Journey Series after a few weeks break over the Christmas period. As we were away for Christmas I didn't do much cooking, so Harry ate a lot of finger foods,vegetables and even he is now sick of Turkey at this stage. I have realised that he really does not like scrambeled egg, which is annoying as its great as a quick tea in the evening. If anyone has any other suggestions for quick evening meals for an 8 month old, leave me a comment below! Now we are back home, I have been cooking now stop. We defrosted our freezer, so I literally had to start over again.

I have now moved on from using ice-cube trays for freezing, as his portions are larger. I find freezing in individual pots easier, and they can be brought to nursery this way. In preparation for me going back to work I have cooked around 10 different meals for Harry. I need to have a meal for nursery and something to give hos grandparents for the afternoon. He has been introduced to lots of new flavours such as onion, garlic, ginger, curry and leeks, gobbling up each meal as if it were his last.

Getting Kids off the Streets and Into Sports

Children grow and develop, and it’s often difficult to keep tabs on them all the time. But it is important to at least try to make sure you keep your kids out of trouble. As they get older, they will be making new friends, and they may well fall in with the wrong crowd. This could lead to them hanging around on the streets, and they might fall into petty crime.

The Broken Rules of Parenting

Pre babies we all have some idea of the kind of parents we would like to be, the ones we definitely don't want to be, the rules you will have in place, the food they will eat and so on. Then baby comes along, and you are taken down from your high horse. You realise that life with kids is so grey, not black or white. They  will make you compromise beyond your limits. Then baby #2 comes a long….all the rules fly out the window.

Harry turned 8 months on the St.Stephens Day/Boxing Day. He has had a tough month of sickness and generally not sleeping much at night. I have been bringing him to my bed and even at that he is still waking every hour or so, just very unsettled. He will go back to sleep once I find his soother, but could be awake an hour later.I'm trying not to give him a bottle at night, but there are some nights he just will not settle and I'll give him one. I resigned myself to the fact a long time ago, that I don't have babies that sleep through the night, and that's just the way it is. With Amelia it wasn't so hard as I just had her, and by the time I returned to work when she was 20 months, she was sleeping through. I'm back to work this week, and have 4 x 12 hr shifts in 5 days to get through,I'm thinking I will be like a zombie by the time I get a day off.

Things You’ll Learn About Living Alone After Moving Out

Young people are supposedly being guided towards their futures throughout their time in education. But the focus is very much on what they can learn academically, rather than fundamentally. I believe this is a serious problem. Being good with numbers isn't going to prepare you for fending for yourself. Being a science geek isn't going to help you deal with grocery shopping. Being a good writer doesn't mean you're going to be any good at tidying up after yourself.
