The 7 Most Important Reasons to Sleep During Pregnancy


Pregnancy can be a very difficult and trying time on a woman’s body for a variety of reasons. The hormones are out of whack, and the increasing size and weight can be very uncomfortable and painful to the back and spine, but most importantly - pregnancy is difficult because a woman is growing another human inside of her.

And while 6-9 hours of sleep is what is necessary in regular life (depending on your age range), pregnant women should get even more rest to nurture the body growing inside of them.

DREAMING OF A FUTURE GARDEN


1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8

I've mentioned numerous times before on the blog how much I hate our garden. In fact you can't really call it a garden because it doesn't even have any grass! It's basically just a back yard with some concrete slabs and a set of table and chairs. But it was the one sacrifice we made when we moved here four years ago as it's a much nicer house. I have also shared many plans over the years to make the space a bit nicer but as we never spend any time in it I've always put it off, especially as the weather has been pretty rubbish and we never really have a summer to be able to sit and enjoy it.

5 Beaches To Visit In North Wales With Kids


Living in North Wales has its perks, especially on a hot summers day when we all just want to cool off and chill at the beach. We have dozens of beaches to choose from including some of the best along Britain's coastline, from just a short 5 minute drive to an hour. North Wales is full of many beautiful beaches and here are five of our personal favourites...

Rose Gold Girls Bedroom Makeover



Now that Amelia is in school and is nearly 6 I have been looking at giving her bedroom a little makeover and making it more age appropriate to hopefully last into her early teens. I've really been loving the rose gold and blush trend going on at the moment, there's so many nice bits like bedding and accessories in the shops at the moment so I thought it would go well in her room and hopefully she'll like it too. She already has newish furniture so that will last her for now but I would like to get her a little white desk and an Eames chair in a couple of years so she can do her homework there. 

Here are some of the bits I've been looking at purchasing for her bedroom. 

If I won the lottery...


Do you ever dream of winning the lottery? I'm sure we all do occasionally. I know I do and despite winning the odd lucky £50 every couple of years I've sadly never won a substantial amount. But of course that doesn't stop me from dreaming. Even 100,000 would be amazing to put down a deposit on a house, buy a new car and go on a few holidays. I've never really been one to gamble, but I do like to play the lottery most weeks (when I remember) and I also like to buy the odd scratch card here or there, but as they say you've got to be in it to win it. There are so many ways to increase your chances of winning these days such as playing the Euromillions or Irish Lottery online with websites such as LottoLand.
