You can get stuck in a rut with food shopping and feel really unorganised with it. We are on a set budget for the month for groceries, so for the past 6 months I have done meal plans to help us stick to what we can afford and we don’t get sucked into all of the offers that the big supermarkets always have on. We have a online delivery saver pass for Tesco, so every Tuesday we get our shopping delivered to our door for only £3 a month. This is ideal for us as we don’t have a car. If we run out of anything or need anything extra through the week, we tend to go to Lidl as it is only a 5 minute walk away from our house so very convenient! Shopping online means I can be extra vigilant with what we spend and it really limits us getting tempted by any offers on things that we don’t really need. Continue reading
Wow, 4 months already! I know I said it last time and I will probably say it in every single one of these updates, but where HAS that time gone??!!!

(Even though she is in my head haha). Continue reading
My youngest son has just turned 3 so I thought I would share some of the gifts he received for his birthday to give you some ideas for Christmas or any birthdays you have coming up! I found him quite difficult to buy for this year as he and his brother seem to have everything already. I therefore made a list of all the things I know he enjoys playing with either at home or at playgroup and just expanded on these really. Continue reading
I was incredibly anxious while pregnant due to having a miscarriage the year before. Sustaining the pregnancy each and every day for the whole 42 weeks I was pregnant was a huge achievement for me. This overshadowed what I actually imagined being a mum was going to be like as I was so focused on the pregnancy, so when J was born it hit me like a ton of bricks!
As a mummy of 3, I have had 3 very different breastfeeding experiences and I thought I would share them all in this blog post.
I found a useful breastfeeding questionnaire which I feel covers all the aspects I wish to cover so I will go ahead and answer the questions.
My name is Laura, I’m 26 years old, wife to Andy and a very proud mummy to Jack, Oscar and Emilia.
