How to launch a business as a Mum

One of the hardest things about being a mum is balancing work, home and parenting. Now just balancing it, but dealing with the guilt that comes with it, no matter what you do.   Before Maxi was born I was determined I would go back to work full time we even paid for the months nursery, but then he was born and had a health scare and I changed my mind.  We moved 300 miles to make sure that I could be a stay at home mum for the first years of my boys lives, but I understand that isn't possible for everyone.

Homemade Gifts – #FabulouslyFrugal 15 Feb 2015

Who does love a homemade gift.  They are much more thoughtful that a purchased one.  I love the thought and love that goes into them, plus they are often less expensive too.  We have some amazing links to last weeks Fabulously Frugal, so please do keep them coming.  I know that these gifts would make a wonderful Mothers Day present.

Vegetable & Salsa Verde Scone Pizza – Kids in the Kitchen

I am a huge advocate of encouraging kids in the kitchen and my boys cook with me at least once a week.  Sometimes getting kids to eat new foods and choose a healthy option can be a battle, but I find with my boys that they are much more likely to eat things that they have actually cooked. We have homemade pizza approximately once a week and this version made with whole grains is a new version to us, but looks and sounds delicious, but more than that it is perfect for cooking with kids.

Encouraging kids to save

Natwest Fairer Savings have asked me to share with you #MySaverStory past, present and future.  The truth is I have never really been a saver, well not until my health scare.  Before that I pretty much winged though life.  Both the husbeast and I were in great jobs and we were off the mindset that credit was fine and we would be OK.  Ha, ha, ha well we were wrong! Life stepped in and it was a big fat wet fish in the face and we got in a pickle that we are still working our way out of five years later! Encouraging your kids to save (more…)

MWorld, A new way of learning

Our children are growing up and learning in an environment so different to when I was at school.  Online technology is a given.  Video content is available at the click of a button.  I remember the school only having one TV on wheels and often my class would come to my parents house to watch a TV program! For the last month or so we have been reviewing the MWorld app and I can safely say that the boys have loved it and both MadDad and me think it is a fantastic way of reinforcing learning without kids even thinking they are learning.   Tecnology

What is MWorld?

Using an Editorial Calendar – CoSchedule review

Can you believe I have been blogging for seven years and only just made the move to using an Editorial Calendar, specifically CoSchedule.  I have been using it for 3 months now and wouldn't be without it, so thought the time had come to share with you my thoughts on using CoSchedule  as an editorial calendar. Up until now I have been using a paper system, which works well, but I decided to integrate CoSchedule in my normal day to day routine and it has been great and saved me time and my sanity which is great.
