The Trials And Tribulations Of Being A Kid

Kids can get up to all sorts. It’s part of the magic of childhood; the innocence of not really knowing the consequences of your actions until something goes right or wrong. It allows a freedom that you rarely get in later life, but with this freedom comes the ability to get into all sorts of trouble – especially when it comes to their bodies. Scrapes, scratches and broken bones are all par for the course in our younger years, and you’d be hard pressed to find somebody who didn’t know someone as a kid who had one of these things happen to them if they didn’t happen to themselves. But can we do anything more to prevent them happening?

Don’t Let Summer Burn Up Your Cash!



Summer is finally here! But if you checked your bills and other expenses thoroughly at the end of last year’s summer, you may have found that you spent quite a lot more money than you’re comfortable with. That’s why it’s essential you have money-saving on your mind when the hot months come to town!


Think twice about air conditioning


When the sun blazes down upon your home and seems to turn it into some sort of oversized oven, it’s tempting to get the AC going at full blast. But you should consider all your options before turning to the AC, because it’s the most expensive option when it comes to cooling your home down. Open up all your windows to ensure there’s a good airflow. Use fans that are pointed outside; instead of having air blown at you, you should aim instead of getting the warm air blown out of the room!

Every day is a holiday? #holiday #kids #celebrate


Did you know that every day is a holiday?

Yes!  That’s right, almost EVERY, single day is a holiday of some sort.

They could be national, historical, silly, made up, little known, unknown, or recognized only by certain people.. but each day has something to celebrate.

I have decided that each day I will be focusing on a holiday.  Yes, that means it could be a made up day.. but I am hoping that each day brings a bit of joy to your lives and gives you a reason to celebrate either alone, with your children or families.

Some days, I’ll show you what my family and I have done for each of these holidays, and I would LOVE to see what you all have come up with for holidays that you celebrate.
