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,
