Cleaning motivation


Check out my new blog post on my site: 

It has been a tough couple of weeks with no heating or hot water, but now all is OK.

With the snow coming and going it has been nice to be indoors catching up on some TV and Youtube, and entertaining my son.

I love cleaning and organisation videos check out an example below:

I would love to hear what you have been watching and what motivates you.

New Book Published


It is Friday the end of another week, I have now published my third book, The Parenting Adventures, Baby to Toddler Years, available from Amazon Click on image below, it will take you to Amazon if you would like to check it out.


I had a lovely mothers day in doors with my son. I got some Katie Perry Perfume as a gift, which I posted on my Instagram (see link below):

Today I am doing some chilling, whilst catching up on errands.

I have been watching a lot of Youtube, and as I am big fan of Celine Dion watching a documentary showing how she is preparing for her return to Las Vegas. It is about 4 or 5 years old, but I love watching as I find it inspiring.

So let me know what you have been up to, I would love to hear from you and who inspires you.

Its as if there was no snow


snow in our garden

I can’t believe after having all that snow its as if when you look outside, that there wasn’t any snow. This time last week it looked bleak as on Friday I had to wait over an hour for a train just to go 5 stops.

It is amazing how nature can cause the whole of Britain to come to a stand still, when we have had snow before. People getting trapped on the roads and on trains, people being stranded on the motorways.

When its that cold all I like to do is lay in bed, with a cup of tea watching TV, or a good old film. Sundays for example there is no better evening for me than having a cup of tea, whilst in bed watching Call the Midwife, Saturdays its Ant and Dec Saturday Night Takeaway and then The Voice, and during the week, it is Extreme Cake Makers on Channel 4 and then the Hustle on Sony Crime Channel on  Freeview.

Unluckily our boiler has been broken since last week with no hot water or heating, so I had to stay at my mums over the weekend and when at home relied on Electric Heaters to warm us up. Hopefully it be fixed this time tomorrow, so don’t have to avoid our landing because it being so cold.

Luckily we do have an Electric Shower so at least we can keep clean. Give Henry our son a wash using a Washing up Bowl, using the water from the shower to give him a bath.

It amazing how you can improvise over the simple things, and find your way around having no heating or hot water.

This morning we had a structured morning, went and bought some new ceiling lights to match our lights in our living room, I will take a picture once up like I did with the wall lights. I will post them on my Seasonal Clean up page.

Purchased from Dunelm, about £40 each.

Some Tunes and organzation videos


It Saturday and not a day I often blog on, but as I was listening to some music and watched some Youtube videos I thought I would share some of the ones I love listening to and watching.

Today I was supposed to be seeing some friends I have known all my life that I don’t get to see that often now, as we all have our own families now, but due to Henry (my son) coming down with some horrid stomach bug, it didn’t happen.

Plus the weather being miserable doesn’t help.

The first thing I wanted to share was some Tunes I love listening to, and the tunes I felt like playing today was from the TSB advert, called Anne Dudley’s Humonics- Henry’s Theme.

Seems weird I know but I just love this tune, it lifts me out of a miserable mood as soon as I  here it on the TV.

The other tune was the instrumental version of the Titanic theme tune.

I just needed to here this today and it takes me to a peaceful place in my mind.

I love a good organisation video to get inspired by too, and I love watching ones from Do It On a Dime Channel. Here is her newest video to help clear up those small untided spaces.

What videos and music to you love to watch on rainy days on at the weekend, I would love to here from you.

Getting by


Please check out my new blog on my website: 

I have started to Home Educate Henry, my son, to help get him ready for when he starts school in September.

For me it is been a bit of struggle as I lost my job just before Christmas, but getting by the best I can. I always get so apprehensive on Wednesdays and Fridays because I have to get up at 6:30am to get Henry at Nursery for 7:30am.

I have been watching Call The Midwife and The Voice, which I am loving at the moment. I can’t get into Dancing on Ice, I watch my favourite which is Cheryl Baker than turn onto something else.

I am having a change around at home at the moment changing our living room around, and taking a piece of furniture from downstairs to upstairs, I will take some photos and post on my  Seasonal Clear up page, on my main site, 

Once it is all complete and post them tomorrow or over the weekend.

My hubby and I’s plan of watching a film in the evenings, didn’t last long we kept getting so tired and then stopping the film halfway through.

Anyway gonna get on now and have some lunch soon, I will post again next week.
