Are You Ditching Jeans?

Well summer is supposedly here, I don't know about where everyone else is but here it's pretty dire. So it's back to jeans and hoodies for me and the kids, in fact this morning they went to nursery in wellies and waded through a huge puddle outside the doors!

A lot of people seem to be ditching the jeans for harem pants, capris and palazzo pants, they're still a staple in my wardrobe. If, like me, you refuse to get rid of your wardrobe staple, House of Fraser has put together a fantastic graphic that can help you choose the right style for your shape.

How I Made It Into Tots100's Top 50


So this week I found out I made into in the top 50 of Tots100. For anyone who isn't sure what this is, it's the chart for parent bloggers which has over 8000 blogs in it, so top 50 is pretty darn good. So today I thought I'd share how I did it.

My Experience of Mark Warner Holidays' Childcare

I have now been fortunate to visit two Mark Warner resorts, once on an adult only trip and once with my family. During both trips I became aware of the incredible childcare Mark Warner offer and on our most recent week in Corsica my children had the chance to give their facilities a thorough test. Today I wanted to let you know how we found the Mark Warner childcare and what we made of the activities on offer.

A CFS Update

Today I've been reading back on some old blog posts and remembering my journey over the last couple of years with depression and chronic fatigue. It's so strange to read back and remember the days I wrote each post and the feelings. And it's interesting to see what a roller coaster it has been and how my mood went up and down.

Today has been a crap one. The children are in nursery and I have the day to myself, and if I am completely honest it's my favourite day of the week as I can do nothing without feeling guilty that the children are suffering from it. 

The last two weeks have seen me sleeping an incredible amount of hours in a day, though, and I'm really feeling low about it. And the housework is suffering and my husband is struggling. Today I dropped the children at nursery, wen back to bed and didn't get up until two. Two!! So I basically slept the day away, and probably could have stayed in bed longer too.

It's so tough to see the light at the end of such a long and dark tunnel and I'm fed up of feeling better and having hope, only for it to be dashed. It's day like this I wonder if things can ever change. I couldn't even be bothered to put a bra on for crying out loud!

My headaches are worse than ever at the moment, quite often I feel like my head is in a vice. I'm finding myself tripping over words and stammering and another pleasant side effect of it all is my left eye has started twitching. So I'm bra-less, makeup-less with a twitching eye. Goodness knows what the workers at nursery think when I drop the kids off on a morning!

It's all part and parcel of the joy that is chronic fatigue. I just wish it would let up a little and let me get back to enjoying my time with my children. Miss H starts school in September and I feel like all I've done is wish her young days away. Sometimes life just feels so bloody unfair.


Family Holidays to Corsica With Mark Warner

family holidays to corsica with mark warner

Last year I was fortunate enough to win a blogger holiday to Rhodes with Mark Warner Holidays. It was an absolutely fantastic experience and my first taste of what Mark Warner offer as a holiday. So when an email pinged into my inbox one dreary Wednesday I was ecstatic to see we had been invited as a family for a week in Corsica with Mark Warner once more. Unfortunately Mr H couldn't take the time off work but after a difficult few years with my dad being ill it was a pleasure to be able to take my mum along in his place.
