6 small ways to save money on your weekly shop

If you’re scanning your receipts with raised eyebrows and wondering where your week’s worth of cash has gone, you’re not alone.

I’ve come up with a few pointers that have steered me well recently. Don’t be a slave to brands While we’ve all got our favourites, we don’t have to cave in to...

Oh we’re in LOVE with this pretty pretty bike… *goes shopping just to fill the basket*

I was noodling about the webs, as you do when you’re supposed to be catching up on your monthly accounts, when I accidentally tripped over the doorway and found myself at Bikester. I know, me either.

Hopefully you don’t need to think about your new babies eyes (except for gazing into them for the hours at a time, obviously) – all babies have a quick eye screen at birth (no, I didn’t know it had happened either), and then the Health Visitor will do another at their 6wk check. After that though, it’s up to you. Unless you see an obvious issue like squinting or eye rubbing, then it’s a good idea for hem...

Talking Vaginas With My Daughter | #MummyConversations

A few weeks ago I returned for Bedtime Pt II (totally normal for us – part one ensures teeth/pj’s/hug/under duvet settled with book, part two is actual lights out, goodnight kiss and hug for reals 30 mins later) visit, and found an agitated girl.
