Sometimes some simple carpet cleaning methods can turn to be much more effective than the professional cleaners, which you find for hire in the supermarkets (you know the ones I mean)! So I have collected some of the most useful and affordable products you can use for domestic carpet cleaning. They are safe and can be used even if you have allergies or incredibly sensitive skin. They are child- and pet-friendly and can be found in any home!
After the last five months of homeschooling, I have learned that things that you never would expect happen, can. So I have become more aware that my children will be leaning using computers and screens. So even though I have no idea what back to school might look like or if some home education will be coming again, I do know that my children’s eye health is so important and have learned about blue light exposure and to consider investing in kids’ blue light glasses.
Growing up by the sea means that I have an affinity with beaches and they are somewhere I gravitate too. We lived in Landlocked Berkshire for 14 years and I craved the sea, so when we came back to North Yorkshire I made it my mission to explore all the local beaches and now I am going to share them with you my best North Yorkshire Beaches.
The North East, specifically North Yorkshire is an amazing part of the UK and also a large area, so today I am going to share some of the best days out in the North East for families. I am a proud northerner, having been born in Teesside and then boomeranging back when Maxi was 1 and I was pregnant with Mini. Over the years we have spent so much time exploring this beautiful part of the country, so have had some fab days out in North Yorkshire
Your children are never too young to introduce these LGBTQ books for Kids. Representation is so important. It not only invites those who identify as LGBTQ an opportunity to be represented – including those who have LGBTQ parents – but it teaches others about inclusivity and acceptance. So I asked my friend Kate from Lesbemums to help me compile a list of diverse books that are perfect for introducing to your children. So over to Kate……
The Parents Guide to Teach Your Child Ukulele is a paid collaborative post with Musician Authority which is a fab website that was set up to help people learn musical instruments.

There is so much information surrounding Coronavirus that even as an adult it scares me, which is why it is so important to talk to kids about coronavirus but in a way that will not scare the s^%$ out of them. As a parent, I always think it is better that they here age-appropriate information form us rather than hearsay and fear from the playground or fear-mongering from the media.
As a family, we take more photos than ever before. It is estimated that in 2020 over 1.4 trillion digital photographs will be taken. Many are shared on social media but many more will be forgotten. With so many photos taken it can be hard to decide which ones to print or to even bother to print any at all.
The Clueless Parents Guide to TikTok is a paid collaborative post with TikTok, but all opinions are my own. You can be forgiven for not knowing what TikTok is if you are not a teenager, but last September, it had more app store downloads than YouTube, Snapchat, Instagram, and even Facebook. It might be the world’s fastest-growing social media app and as a parent, it might also be the world’s most confusing! So here is my clueless parent’s guide to TikTok.

Treads – School shoes that last is a collaborative post (they provided me with one free pair and a pair to giveaway). I have never lied about the fact that I have a child that kills school shoes. In fact, I think that school shoes take some stick from most children. For my boys, it is not just wearing them at school, but also the football in the playground. Mini seems to be especially hard on his shoes.
Teen Bedroom Update is a paid collaborative post with Bostik. Over the last six months, we have been working on updating Mini’s bedroom. You can see exactly what we did on our earlier post. However, he has been desperate to move his Xbox to his room over the winter from the conservatory as the rain means he needs to have the volume loud.
For some people, a trip to Orlando is a once in a lifetime trip (I have been once with all my family and once on a press trip with Maxi). Travelling to the USA can be expensive and if you are like me then you will want to make sure you have all bases covered like getting your ESTA ! My brother and his family travel to Orlando on a regular basis (it is their happy place) and so he is sharing some of his top tips for travelling to Orlando.
