Lensball Adventures

A month or so ago I invested in a new toy – a Lensball – after seeing Tim playing with his on Instagram and seeing Grace with hers at the Flea Retreat. I love taking photos and the Lensball was really something fun rather than something to take amazing photos. I bought it as a hobby, something to inspire some creativity in me and something to pass some time too.…

Things I Always Want to Remember

I have always known that we would only have two children. Although after Little Man was born, and up until he turned one – maybe even two – I could have quite happily had another, I knew that wasn’t right for our family – two was always going to be the right number.

They both worked so hard…

The Future isn’t ‘just’ Female

I keep seeing slogan tees and accessories everywhere – in shops, in online stores and across social media – that say, simply, The Future is Female. I have seen them so many times now that I just had to write about it because, as much as I’m for empowering women and wanting men and women to be treated equally, I really feel this isn’t the way to go about it.…

What do you do?

Now that I’ve moved from my old traditional day job to work as a blogger life couldn’t be better. We have a good balance, I get to be at home with the children and I finally feel like life and work take up the right amount of time each. But, there’s one thing that still always catches me off guard and makes me nervous about this career of mine. When…
