Over the last year or so, I have had a few discussions about how health and saftey conscious today’s parents are (myself included). When comparing now and when we were children, we wouldn’t dare do half of those fun things with our own. ..Read on
Walking our dogs is generally always therapeutic…except when you come across another dog walker whose social skills require some work..read on for the full story
50 Things to Do Before you’re 11 ¾…is a list compiled by The National Trust and is a great way to get out and about with your children (or without!) …here is the list we have completed.

If you are thinking of hiring an au pair, or nanny, most sites or book tell you the do’s. Well here are a few tips on what not to do… and yes this is from experience.
As I start out on my new journey in the world of blogging, I can’t but help feel nervous and a bit anxious as to whether I am doing the right things, at the right times and whether this is something I will be able to sustain over time. Sort of like starting out in the world of becoming a parent.
Just like deciding on whether to have children (or not), I sat and pondered whether I am up for the task of writing (I have never considered myself a writer) and whether my supportive husband would be ok with the idea (thankfully he is!).
Once I made the decision, and unlike the joint decision we made to have children, in this case my supportive husband was only told after I had secured my domain name, the realisation suddenly hit that I *may* actually need to start working on all the other things that need to be done and research as much as I can before I start blogging. And yes, this is the same feeling I had after the excitement of falling pregnant. The ”oh wow! What happens next and what do I need to do in order to ensure our baby grows and we do everything in the right way!’ I feel the same way about mumof2.com.
Over the coming weeks, I am sure I will make a few (or a lot) of mistakes and hopefully learn from them. I do hope that you will check back to find out my progress and as my confidence grows that some of my posts will be thought provoking and inspiring.
