We all need a break don’t we?

The rush of love I felt when I saw my little girl yesterday was amazing. I did wonder how she’d be with me after I haven’t seen her for five days when I went off on a girls break away to Majorca. She has a problem with me leaving her for an hour, let alone […]

Can I go out tonight please?

I’ve got a problem and I could do with your help, please help me with this one. My five-year-old won’t let me go out! I’m a single mum with the sole care of my daughter, no weekends off, nothing, nada. So yes the problem is she won’t let me go for a night out, a […]

Inflatable heaven

Holidaymakers have gone inflatable mad, I don’t think they let you through customs without one. We are on holiday at the moment in Lanzarote and you can barely see an inch of the pool for glittery unicorns. Gone are the days where everyone was over the moon with a lilo (if you were posh you […]

Would you go on your own or not?

I’ve just got back from a little holiday….on my own. No of course I didn’t go completely on my own, what I mean is, I went away ‘sans child’ and I’ve got to say I loved it. I felt a lot of guilt, even from the second I shut the front door after telling her […]

My tip for fussy eaters

I was amazed at something we found on Holiday so I’ve brought it home with me. The kids all get a lanyard to wear around their necks and for every food they try or each healthy food they eat they get a sticker. I’ve never seen my four year old tuck in so much. The […]

Split up from my kid on a flight!

I really can’t believe what I’m about to tell you. We’ve just had a lovely holiday in Sardinia, went to the airport to check in for the return flight and walked away with our tickets. It was pure luck then I looked at the boarding passes to see if we had a window seat for […]

Holidays are coming….

At this time of year everybody’s looking around at the holidays that they going to take in the summer. As a single parent I’d love to just book one and fly off, but you know it’s never as simple as that. And being on my own throws up some issues that I’d never considered. Last […]

Hide your fear…

I try and do my best to build confidence in my daughter, at 3 years old she’s susceptible to all the things that she hears others are scared of.  She went crazy the other day at the tiniest spider, but I reassured her that spiders are actually our friends and get rid of all the […]

The absolute bonus having a toddler….

Having had a lovely week away in Cyprus last week and making the most of the all-inclusive buffet, I was dreading getting on the scales.There were 8 of us away together and it really shouldn’t have been a competition as to who could fill their plate the highest but it turned into that. And I […]

The trials and tribulations of holidays 

Why am I so anxious about taking my little girl on holiday? I’ve been abroad lots of times before but I’m totally out of my comfort zone as this is her first time jetting off to another country and I’m trying to ward off all the issues before they come up. Firstly, I’m having problems checking […]
