Hello! Feels like ages since I wrote on this page. I have just written a new blog on my website The Parenting Adventures Tips and Tricks site.


Talking about, learning the transitions and adjusting to them, as your child grows. Such as Potty Training which we are beginning to do, and then it will be nursery to may be a Pre-school to going to actual school.

Time travels fast, so I have been trying more to focus on today instead of looking to far ahead. The things I do write down is any appointments for Henry and myself, in terms of health and wellbeing.

I can’t believe we are in March already in 2017 but we are.

My favourites things this year so far has  been, using my Balis and Harding gift set, I bought at Christmas and my Botanics from Wilkinsons. (See below)


I would definitley recommend. At the moment I am using my tinted the Avon Skin So Soft tinted body lotion, thats what I used today after my shower, along with The Original Champneys Health Spa Citrus Blush Enlivening Body Butter.


Would recommend and would buy this again, it is now about £8.00 for the body butter, but I don’t mind paying for that product, if it lasts for a long time and feel good quality. It is very smooth to put on and great if you just want to moisterise and then get dressed and go.

My favourite song has been the song, Human by Rag ‘n’ Bone Man. Brilliant song, my favourite this part of the year.

A song played by radio Jackie yesterday whilst travelling back from dropping of something for my mum and to pick up my laptop and it is a song called, I won’t let you down again, by Ph. D; takes me back as a young child, and must have been when I first heard it play. It came out in 1982, and as a child we often would play around in Chelsea in London, because that was where my nan lived, and my parents friends were.

It was in a Public House (Pub) called The Riley. No we didn’t drink but back then it wasn’t so frowned upon for kids to be in a pub. There is an estate at the back of this pub, aswell as some shops along side it, where many of my mum and family lived, and we would play in the play ground there a lot.

I remember, because we would travel from Hammersmith,  having to wait ages for the number 11 bus to take us there. You think the transport and traffic is bad now, we would wait a good hour some days for a bus to turn up. However there were no Oyster cards bac k then and it wasn’t that expensive to travel by bus then or train.

Chelsea the place itself, has always been famous since I remember, especially the Kings Road for being the trendy place to be, and still is. It has built up since the days I used to spend my childhood there, that slowly but surely some of the old Chelsea has slowly disappeared. Nevertheless I have some great memories of the passed, and it is still a place I like to go back to even if it is travelling by bus or walking along the embankment.

What music brings back your memories would alive that make you smile. Also what skin care products have you used that you would recommend. I would love to hear from you.

Many thanks for reading,

Keep The Faith In Others


I was going to type on here this morning at about 4am when I was wide awake and needed to get on with something. Yes that isn’t a typing error that was the time. I had woken from a dream and could hear my husband chatting to our son, whilst changing his nappy. Thank you hubby.

Then he made me a cup of tea and I was wide awake so got up to do some work on the computer but had already started something else that I had left from yesterday so got on with that instead and edited a video, ready to publish. It’s uploading now.

I just this minute as I continue write this blog, added the music in part of my video. It is a recipe. Banana Loaf Cake from All Recipes http://allrecipes.co.uk/recipe/8729/easy-banana-cake.aspx 

I then once finished editing my video, became tired again and did manage to get another hour or so of sleep.


Sorry I had put this blog on hold for half an hour or so. I got the chance to have a nice hot bath, using Avon Golden Moments bubble bath. I don’t always get the luxury of a bath these days, so when an opportunity comes along I make the most of it.

See photo of the bubble bath below, take from:

I took my son to the doctors yesterday because his cold seemed to be getting worse and usually when that happens it means he is developing a Chest Infection. Lucky whilst waiting in the surgery to see the doctor and Henry was about to kick off my husband turned up to meet me. We waited over an hour.

Once seen by the doctor it was literally 10 minutes in and then out.

Lucky my son is all good and it is just a cold.

I do dread doctors surgery now because every time I have gone there I have had to wait for ages. It does appear that we are struggling for GP’s and doctors. You think of the size of this country and the amount of people we have living here, you can’t help but think why.

There was another mum there too who had two children. One who was I would say near to Henry’s age and an older child. They helped entertain Henry too with no questions asked, especially the older child. The little one was a bit resistant, but she was only tiny. They were doing High five and Henry kept wanting to hug the younger child, and then cheer as he does when he does high five. He does love other children. As soon as he sees other children playing he is off.

I forgot to say to the mum and her two children thank you. As they were a great help in keeping my son from having a breakdown. I have experience snobby mums, but when meeting the mum like I did yesterday helps to restore my faith in people.

Thank you to the lady and her children they are a credit to the world and society.

So I better go now as I can hear that Henry is awake, but I will blog again on this site next week.

Many thanks for reading,
