What Age Should Children Have Their First Phone?

Holly and Jack are only seven and six and yet for the last year they have been constantly asking me for a mobile phone of their own. Of course the answer is no, however it does occur to me how aware of technology our children are at such a young age but also at what age is it suitable for children to have their first phone?

Here’s Why You May Want To Choose Costa Rica For Your Next Vacation

Costa Rica is one of those locations you know you are going to love but you do not really know why. There is an aura of mysticism around it.

Things You Can Do With Conkers This Autumn

So it's officially autumn, the leaves are changing colour and the conkers are falling. If your children are like mine, their pockets and school bags will come home bulging every day and you'll have more conkers than you know what to do with! I thought I'd put together some ideas I've come across for activities you can do to put these autumn chestnuts to use, from home decor to craft activities.

Blog On Blogging Conference Five Years Later

This weekend I attended the Manchester blogging conference, Blog On. After originally thinking I wouldn't attend this one, I decided I couldn't miss out on the social aspect it brings me twice a year, and I'm so glad I did. I have been blogging nearly eight years now and in that time have attended many a blogging event and conference. Eventually they all fade into a blur of faces, brands and sessions you don't really remember, however there is just something different about Blog On.

How I Was Diagnosed With Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

It is now nearly six years since I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. After thinking initially recovery would be a couple of years, I can't believe I am now so far down the road. Today I thought I'd share my diagnosis progress as CFS can be a difficult illness to diagnosis due to there being no specific test for it.

I have always been a tired person - my mum would have to drag me out of bed most mornings through my teenage years and in my working life I would often have to go to sleep in my car on my dinner break to make it through the day. I've been known to get home from work at six, go to bed until nine and then go for a night out. I always knew I needed more sleep than most but never saw it as anything to be concerned about.

Summer Holidays 2018

I cannot believe as I write this, this year's school holidays are almost at an end. Usually by this time I am absolutely run ragged with all the activities I've tried to fit in with the children and absolutely desperate for them to return to school and our normal routine. I cannot say I'm eager for them to stay at home but I think for the most part this year's break has gone slightly smoother.
