What Mums REALLY want this Mother’s Day

Top Rockin' Tips

Mothers Day is on the horizon, so what do Mothers REALLY want? The answer: A break, a happy family day out wth no tears, a clear mind, a tidy house, an interrupted bath, a day to herself. I think what Mothers REALLY want this Mothers Day is not so much the flowers, the chocolate, the cards (however nice and thoughtful they can be)… it is simply a day just for her; I mean isn’t that the reason its called Mothers Day?

Here are some ideas, if your struggling to grasp the concept, of how this could be achieved; Mama Guilt free might I add! YOU DESERVE IT, so stop telling yourself for whatever reason you do not!

Say goodbye to stress: Cry your way to happiness

Musings

Does crying make you happy? Relieve stress through crying? Hear me out… I have always thought that after a good cry I have somehow felt a sense of relief in a way; after watching an episode of Everybody Loves Raymond (If anyone has not watched this show you need to jump on that bandwagon immediately… breakfast watching for the win!) and seeing the main lady attempting to explain this to her husband I thought… its not just me then! I started to do some research and I found that in fact crying can make you happy, and here is why.

Happy Mama makes for a happy home

Musings

Since my little man was…well… little, I have been of the opinion that whatever my feelings were at the time, even well hidden ones, he would pick up on them. Babies are like emotional meerkats and always are completely attuned to their Mothers worry, stress, sadness or happiness (obviously any other emotion applies here… I’m not listing them all out for you…) As the little man has grown in age and independence her still seems to feed off my emotions in a big way; and Ive noticed that my the Mr does too; a happy Mama really does make for a happy home

Get organised and rock 2017 with MUMs Office: A Review

Product Reviews

I have always been partial to a diary; I tend to try not to use digital means too frequently for my day to day activities, just list making. No, your day to day life needs a good ol’ fashioned diary and so in contrary to previous years I sought out to find a ‘family’ diary that would help me organise my growing family and busy lifestyle. I had a look at a few styles but the exceptional reviews steered me towards the MUM’s Office brand. I ordered a snazzy burn orange number and waited impatiently for the post man to bring me my epic tool for rocking 2017 and truly getting organised.

Stressed out Mama? Top tips to beat stress from ITV’s ‘This Morning’

Musings, Top Rockin' Tips

I was watching ITV’ This Morning… this morning… (I have to admit that i don’t ordinarily actually pay much attention to morning shows as I am attempting to finally eat my breakfast after sorting out everyone else and indulging my little man in playing for a while) and I was for the first time enthralled by the new feature that Lorraine Kelly hosts called ‘Brand New You’. It is a thread that aims to give daily advice and inspiration to women wanting to refresh and detox their bodies for 2017. Today the instalment focussed on stress and it really interested me enough to feel the need to share in with you lovely ladies, and men, as I feel that parents need to find time for themselves to destress most of all!
