Charlie can hold his wee I'll give him that!! I took off his nappy at 9am and he did his first wee at 12:40! And it was on… Continue reading POTTY TRAINING DAY 1
DOWN TO OUR LAST 5p It's been in the news recently about rising inflation and the increasing cost of living. In order to control our finances we have been setting ourselves a weekly budget - setting a figure which covers food, petrol & outings to playgroup etc. We withdraw that figure in cash for the… Continue reading Down To Our Last 5p | How We Budget

27th July 2017 Yesterday was a rare day spent at home, usually we are up and out not long after breakfast but we do have the odd day with nothing planned except pottering around and seeing where the day takes us.

"Life is actually really simple, but we insist on making it complicated" - Confucious. Too often we think "what if" and this stops us from taking action.
