Potty Training | Safety 1st Smart Rewards Potty Review

Thursday, 15 November 2018
I was always told - 'girls are so much easier to potty train', so I always thought to myself, Isla will train herself, she will train early, I will have no problems - erm wrong! Potty training Jack seemed like a crazy adventure. He understood some aspects of using the toilet but with all of our changes happening he just never cracked. Then he was due to start school nursery and on the home visit two days before they told us they wouldn't take them in nappies, so that was that and within a day he was dry.

Getting our family finances back into control

Thursday, 4 October 2018
Sometimes, it is hard to keep an eye on the family finances, especially when life is at full speed and you just don’t get a minute to check. No matter how much we try to keep on top of ours, occasionally there is a curveball of an unexpected expense or a slip in expense that wasn’t necessarily needed but was had.

In May this year, our incomings were mixed up I started a new job and took a pay cut due to the pay scales, then in June Ashley swapped his great paid job to start a career in what he had dreamed of. Within a month our yearly incomes had decreased by almost £10,000, we had to seriously readdress our finances and suddenly it seemed everything was just a little bit tighter. We made a few changes to our routine and budgets and whilst it's been tough, and still is it’s made us reassess our finances and what we could have always saved on.

5 Ways To Save Money Around The Home.

Monday, 1 October 2018
We are at that time of year when as a parent, everything seems like it costs money. You have Christmas fast approaching when the ‘fat man’ comes, there are school trips which are upcoming at this time of year, and not forgetting the colder weather approaching so we tend to have our heating on more. As a young busy family, we are always looking at ways we can make and save money, especially around the home as we spend a lot of our time here.
Finding ways you can save money around the home is quite simple, and can even be put into action when you’re not at a tight time of year. I personally feel that where possible making and saving money all year round is helpful.

Tackling Eczema Diagnosis and How We Cope Now #OneTwoFreeYourSkin

Monday, 24 September 2018
When Jack was younger, his skin was something which would cause me endless battles and sleepless nights. He had awful skin, which in turn turned out to be eczema but the journey to get that diagnosis was a painful one emotionally. 

You see, Jack had always had fairly dry skin, but when he was around 5 months old it seemed to be getting worse. I enquired with the health visitor and we visited the doctors and still, it took a while to get some help. Some 15 months later we finally got an eczema diagnosis with lots of various visits in between that to get some help and support. In all this time, I would trawl the internet for treatments which may help him, creams I could possibly purchase to help him 

Keeping Safe At Home When You Thought You Were.

Thursday, 20 September 2018
Just over 3 years ago now we moved into our new house, it was a new build in a fairly nice area, yes there are some parts around which aren't but where we are is or should I say was. We live local enough to the village, local enough to the parks and a little bit of open space and close enough to school, everything we could potentially wish for, with the position we were buying a house, close enough to the city. 

We had been lucky in the respect of we had never been broken into ever that's my parents included, that was until a couple of years ago. You see as move houses reached completion more families were obviously moving in.
