These days, an increasing number of children spend most of their time indoors wired to technology. A lack of physical activity predisposes them to obesity-related health problems. Apart from being overweight, children develop weaker muscles and bones if they don’t exercise regularly, while chances of getting type-2 diabetes and high blood pressure increase as they grow older too.
School's out for Summer! Whoop whoop!
We've had a big brainstorm over the weekend and here's our list of all the fun activities we want to tick off our bucket list before the new school year starts in September (I've managed to sneak a few practical ones in too!)...
I've sat down this week and sorted out my Kindle. It was a long process but I now have proper 'read' and 'TBR' folders which makes my soul happy. I can now see all the fab books I have lined up ready to read and prioritised the titles I aim to read over the Summer.
We are in the middle of a heatwave, break out the sun cream! We put 4 of the best high factor sun creams through their paces on holiday this month to let you know which we recommend to protect your kids' delicate skin this summer.
I would love to say we had a fantastic Mother's Day filled with smiles and fun. Unfortunately Little I caught a tummy bug which she naturally passed onto me so the weekend was a complete washout! I hope somewhere there are some violins playing...
Luckily I had spent Friday with my Besties having the first inaugural 'Aunties' Day' and Friday night at the new B.A Paris thriller book launch with my Mum. So I already felt I'd celebrated, just a shame my girls didn't get to pamper me for the day! They'll have to make up for it next year. Here's a shot with my lovely Mummy at the book launch on Friday night.
February is birthday season for me. My whole family within 5 days - seriously! So cake features lots in my photo roundup this month...
This little monkey turned 7 this week. Super proud of my biggest little one. Happy Birthday Little E.

One week into 2018 and I finally feel the Christmas chaos is behind us and we are back into our routine. I'm not usually one for setting resolutions - before the kids I managed to stop taking sugar in my tea but that's about it. This year is different. 2017 was a great year for us overall. We moved house. The kids settled well in school/pre-school. But while my business exploded and my blog grew, I very much felt like it was all happening without any control. This year I want to steer it down the right path. Sophie from Life as Mrs D has written her 18 goals for 2018 and I've been inspired to write mine to help keep me focused this year.
