Hello Autumn #HappyDays

This year is going so fast. It’s November this week, the weather is bleak, the sparkly season is hitting the streets and I really don’t know where time is hurtling to. I’m feeling it more so because baby CABS is almost one and I’m not sure how long I can …

A Moment of Whatever You Call It

Full of cold, full of other stuff in my head, full of a desire to do something else means the blog is suffering in silence. I don’t think I’ll be away for long but I need to focus on me at the moment. Work on a plan of action to …

It’s Hard to Put My Finger On It

I’ve gone for a walk. Left the kids with Dave and headed out alone with my thoughts. It’s sunny the birds are singing the air is crisp, a slight breeze. It’s a perfect spring day. I’m sat on my favourite bench (the one with the little house), ducks are approaching, …

Fun and Fast #ABC123Challenge

It’s Friday when I normally try write-up my round-ups. The perfect day for a letter F.  As usual the week has flown by faster than ever. We’ve had plenty of fun but I clicked my neck one morning half way through the week so I’ve had a not so pleasant …

2018 The Year I Create

It seems that with my move to including Two Tiny Makes on my blog is the move to being more creative.  This blog never had a set destination and although I’ve pretty much always dreamed of being a craft blogger I never really got round to it. Now that the …

What’s In A Week

Wow this week has flown past! This is another attempt to get myself back into the swing of writing a weekly round-up post in preparation for the #abc123challenge in a couple of weeks time. I guess only my family really read last weeks post because it remains pretty unloved. Given …

Saturday Shine

I’ve often got draft blog posts sat half written in the depths of my hidden blog.  This one was entitled Do You Walk a Mile? The answer is no.  In the spirit of new year I planned to make sure me and my very littles got outside and walked at …

The ABC123 Challenge 

Welcome to the ABC123 Challenge. This is not new to me, back in 2016 I gave this a go as a way to find my writing voice and get into the swing of creating regular blog posts.  3 blogs a week, each week a different letter of the alphabet.  It …

A Pipe Dream, Reality or Hobby?

Becoming a parent, one that stays at home, does something to your confidence, it wrecks it, at least mine anyway.  I feel like I’ve become a little bit socially awkward and I often stay away from situations where I’ve got to talk to people I don’t know.   That makes me …

Happy Days August

I enjoyed writing my July update last month so much that I have decided I’d start it up again weekly as you can see Happy Days August means that I obviously failed at this.  Good intentions and all that.  It’s been a crazy month of being busy one minute to …

How to Improve and Promote your Blog

It’s not very often that I chuck out a blogging related post any more.  I feel a little bit like a fraud when I’m telling people how to blog because let’s face it I’ve kicked back a bit recently and cut down on blogging and very rarely promote my blog …

Blogging: Is 12 Months The New 6 Months?

It’s pretty much 12 months since I got a bit serious with my blog.  By serious I mean growing it, finding readers, writing regularly and dare I say becoming addicted to it. At the start of the process I read a lot of established bloggers blogs to get tips, hints …

Can We Be Inspirational?

Can we be inspirational? Yes, I hope so. If you’ve followed my blog for a while now you’ll have heard me mention #TribalChat.  If you don’t know what this is well it started out and still is a Twitter chat hour on a Tuesday at 8pm.  The brilliant Katie from …
