The ups and downs of living with a teen

My Week

It has been a very busy and emotional week for us here. Last Saturday, my daughter came back home after her amazing holiday away with my parents on a Disney Cruise, I know how lucky was she. Unfortunately, she came home with a raging temperature, sore throat, bad ear and cough. She literally walked in […]

Growing Up….

Today is the day my little girl started Secondary School, the start of a new chapter in her life I remember her first day in Reception, seems a lifetime ago now.  She was still 4 years old and so excited.  I was tearful and worried all day.  Would she be ok, would she like it, […]

PartyLite Review

Anyone who knows me, will know how much I love scented candles and am always looking at them while I am out and about shopping, and sneaking them home with me. So you can imagine I said yes when Stephanie from PartyLite contacted me, to ask if I would like to review some products from […]

She started her last year in Primary like any other year, […]

Silly Accidents

Has your child ever had a really silly accident, that has resulted in something more serious? In 2011, we were staying at a friends house , the next morning us adults were chatting, while the kids played. All of a sudden my daughter let out a horrific scream.  Two seconds before this I had watched her […]

My daughter has gone on holiday today for a week with my parents, and we promised that she could have her bedroom redecorated, but her Dad put in […]
