The ups and downs of living with a teen

My Christmas

Hope everyone had a good christmas, ours was lovely as always. Christmas Eve started with me making sausage rolls with christmas songs blasting and singing away. After lunch I popped to the pub with my husband for our annual christmas eve drink, our daughter stayed at home with my parents.  I fell in love with […]


As I keep being told by my Daughter it is Christmas Eve Eve today, so as I will be very busy tomorrow doing all the christmassy things I have planned which involves. Making Sausage Rolls, cleaning, last minute bits and pieces and then to the pub for a few drinks with friends. I thought I […]

Duerrs Stawberry Jam Review

I was recently asked if I would like to review some jam from Duerr’s, I was very happy to say yes, who doesn’t like jam, also had my mind racing on what I would do with the jam once it arrived. Last week my jam arrived, I had so many recipes going through in my mind, […]

My Week – 19/12/15

This has been a funny old week really, last week of the school term, my Daughter was ready to have a break, she has been quite stroppy and moody this past week or so. Monday I woke feeling ok but a little sad as it was the 17th anniversary of my Grandma’s death, she was […]

Eisberg Alcohol-Free Wine

I was asked if I would like to review Eisberg Alcohol-Free Wine , I do love a nice glass of wine and although I have seen alcohol free wine before, I have never tried it, as always though it would not be the same. So when I was asked if I would like to try a bottle […]

Stick To Stigu Review

I only started up my blog this year and am loving writing my blog, but one thing I have learnt along the way is that it takes planning, and that a lot of bloggers use a planner. I have to admit, I am one of those people that do not do lists, or write things […]

My Week – 13/12/15

This week has been a right mix of emotions, I have seriously been through the mill. My Mum was called in for a laparoscopy on Wednesday, she had the call on Tuesday afternoon, following a scan she had last week.  Luckily it was not as serious as we thought and hopefully with the medication she […]

My Baby Diary part 1

During Babyloss Awareness Week I wrote about my struggle to become a Mum, the heartache I felt and the struggle I had. I recently had an email regarding my diaries that I wrote whilst I was pregnant with my Daughter.  They were going to be gone soon, so I have saved them and thought I […]
