How other people live


There is nothing more interesting to me than watching how other people live, and I have got into watching some Youtube videos about how a family of three live in a van travelling across Australia.

Check out below:

I find it refreshing to watch, as it makes me realise you have to make the most of what you have. There is a lady from England who lives in a Yurt in New Zealand.

Check out channel below:

They do unschooling, as they learn as they do physical things like picking fruit and vegetables, crafting and playing outdoors. I see it as a education to live a more minimal life and do simple play to educate my own son, before he begins school.

I also been watching videos on other blog writers for inspiration, check out example of a video I came across was really interesting.

As a blog writer I believe in learning and educating myself for inspiration and to make the most of my days rather than lounging around all day doing nothing, as that does makes the days go slow.

So what do love to watch that inspires you I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

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.

Many thanks for reading,

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.

Check out my new blog I wrote today on my blog site: 

Please see my Seasonal Clean ups page of our new ceiling lights we have put up and our change around.
