• Remember that time my post went Viral?

    A week ago I attended the Prima Toys Launch of their Christmas range of toys. It was a carnival theme and a bunch of my friends were there so we all had a blast feeling like little kids again. We got to play with the new toys, eat caramel popcorn and shoot hoops for prizes. It was fantastic! It was also overwhelming because there are SO many toys for kids these days. Like most parents I want to give my kids the world but at the same time I know that for my kids personally, less is more. For that reason I limit the number of toys that they have…

  • How much is too little?

    One of our good friends came over to stay for a week recently. She has stayed with us before but I never really paid that much attention to how long she took to get ready each day.

  • 2018 Goals (The long version)

    I am a terrible goal setter. Mostly because my memory sucks and I forget where I wrote them down 😂 So I’m going to leave this list right here for me to come back and assess my progress during the year. #1 – Drop a dress size<<< s may not seem like a lot to do, it's just one size right? Ha! I have been struggling to drop this size for two years!! I am a size 36 or a L depending on the size table. I know this isn't huge and it's a very reasonable size to be but it's not a comfortable size for me. The biggest problem…
