Our early scan at 8 weeks – Review of The Scan Room, Huddersfield

Our early scan at 8 weeks – Review of The Scan Room, Huddersfield

For some reason, this pregnancy has by far been my most anxious one. I don’t know if it’s the fact I’m maybe not quite so naive this time around, or that in my odd head, the fact I’ve had 2 straightforward pregnancies means I’m almost expecting something to go wrong this time around. I find out I was pregnant just before I was 4 weeks this time, so I knew from very early on. I touched on it in my…

Pregnancy update – 11 & 12 weeks – 3rd baby

Firstly, I must apologise! I’ve not been feeling 100% so haven’t felt able to do my 11 week update.

So I hope you don’t mind, but here is my pregnancy update for 11 and 12 weeks. How far along? Today I am 12 weeks and 2 days Due date? 21st August Symptoms? Tired…so…so…tired! I know,…

My new challenge – monthly food shop.

My new challenge – monthly food shop.

My new challenge – monthly food shop So it’s no secret I love Aldi, in fact I wrote a blog post with tips on how to shop there. However, I just hate doing the weekly food shop. As amazing as Aldi is, until someone builds one with an on-site crèche, it’s definitely the bain of my life. I tend to go on a Tuesday, when my eldest is at nursery. When my youngest was a baby, this was perfect. She…

The things you need to know about mystery shopping.

The things you need to know about mystery shopping.

I have only been mystery shopping for the last couple of months, but I am loving it so far! It’s definitely made a positive impact on our income, and I have only done it few times. So what is mystery shopping? Basically, it’s a tool used by companies to evaluate their employees and stores performances. It gives them a non biased review of how well their company is doing. The companies employ outside mystery shopping agencies to arrange mystery shoppers…

Our Eurocamp family holiday in France

Our Eurocamp family holiday in France

In June this year, we travelled to France for our very first Eurocamp holiday as a family. Ten days of sun, beautiful countryside, and of course, wine. All the wine. My personal experience of Eurocamp holidays were when we used to go every year as children. My memories were made up of BBQ’s, LOTS of time spent in the swimming pool, and generally, loads of fun! Therefore, when we saw Eurocamp had a great 30% off deal 6 months before,…

Monday night meal plan – 1/1/18

Monday night meal plan – 1/1/18

Is anyone else glad to be getting back to a bit of normality this week? I swear I’ve eaten my body weight in cheese and chocolate over the last 10 days, and as lovely as it’s been, my body is craving anything healthy. I never thought I’d say this, but junk food is turning my stomach at the moment! There can definitely be too much of a good thing sometimes. So expect some (relatively) healthy meal plans coming your way…
