More Drinks, A Flavoured Water That is Not Packed With Sugar

If I saw more drinks in the supermarket I would just walk on by, why?

Because I don’t buy flavoured water for the boys. In general it is absolutely packed with sugar, which also means high carbohydrates.

I remember when they were little buying flavoured water thinking I was doing the right thing and then I read the sugar content and could not believe what was in it. So from then on I bought plain water only, and let them have flavoured as treats, on days out etc.Juice 1 Continue reading →

Introducing Me Time

I am so excited today as I am starting a new little blog adventure with my good friend Karen from the amazing Mini Travellers. We both write our little blogs about traveling with our manic families and decided it would me nice to have some Mum treat time.

Its hard being a Mum isn’t it, we revolve our lives around our families, and put having a busy career into the mix and there is little time for pampering, relaxation and a little adventure. Mums’ whether SAHM or working, have very little time to spend on themselves.

What Being a Mum Has Taught Me?

I have thought long and hard about this, what has being a Mum taught me? Honestly, hand on heart I am not the person I was pre children. Having the boys has changed me in so many ways. Yes, deep down I am still me, but a better version of me most definitely, not that I was awful before, but I just didn’t get first time gushy Mums.

I am from a huge family where there is a new baby every year. I was quite matter of fact about them, took them for granted almost like having good food in the cupboard. There were always babies around, I loved them all, but they were everywhere.

Our Next Q Hotels Adventure

We are all so excited as next week we are off on another little adventure. We are doing a spot of hotel hopping around the Midlands with the lovely Q Hotels. I must say I am loving my ambassador role, we have got some great locations planned  there is so much to see in the UK, places that we haven’t even considered visiting before.

I mean don’t get me wrong, going abroad it great, but there is a lot to be said about traveling in the UK showing the boys the heritage of Great Britain.

So  where are off on our little Q hop?

We are starting off at the Telford Hotel & Golf Resort.

Now firstly, have you seen this pool, it looks fab. The boys are going to love swimming in here and there are dedicated splash times for families. The spa looks amazing I am wondering if I can sneak off for an hour and pay it a visit, for research purposes only of course.

My Holiday Essentials Challenge

Lists, lists, lists. That’s what I live my life by it seems? Travel plans, football fixtures, clinic appointments, dentist appointments , and special events at work. You get the gist don’t you? Being a working Mum means I need lists to survive.

But I have to say my favourite sort of list is a travel list, and trust me at any given time I have a few on the go. So when I got the chance to work with Chemist Direct I thought great an opportunity to reduce one of my lists.
