Half term...

School and work are done and that means one thing and one thing alone - half term is here and it's much needed! 

You learn as you go and previous school holidays have taught me some important things - if I think back to both the February and Easter break I've got to be honest, by the end of trying to fit everything in I felt a little frazzled. Juggling family days out, meeting family and my boy's friends, it all felt like everything was a little too squeezed in. Too stretched and not enough chill out time for us.

This time I have a plan or lack of to be more precise. We're taking things much slower. One thing a day, no morning starts and a few days where there is absolutely nothing in the diary. Bliss. Freedom to do whatever we fancy. 

Isn't that the point of holidays and especially the one week ones? It's hard, you want to do so much and have lots of adventures because let's face it weekends are jam packed with clubs so you don't get much of a chance to do anything else. Mantra to self: there will be plenty of time in the summer.

Here's to a quiet half term, a chance to really, truly unwind and recharge those batteries before the busy last leg of the year. I find this final term a long and hectic one...

Back to basics...

Let me introduce you to my new phone. 

That's right it's not an iPhone...please tell me I'm not the only individual not to have one?! You see I did succumb for nearly three years but recently jumped off that bandwagon. 

I want my phone to be just that, I don't want to be on it all the time. I'm not a person that uses it to sync everything (I have no clue what that actually means), nor do I listen to music on it. I use it for calls, texts, a camera and some apps and this Nokia Lumia 930 does precisely that and it has apps my boy loves. 

So in a bid to reduce the amount of time I spend on my mobile I have jumped ship and I LOVE my new phone, not to mention the battery life - this beauty will give me two days instead of the 'three times a day' charge my old iPhone needed. 

I want to be in the moment and not on my phone.

DIY Easter biscuits...

There's not a whole lot of baking that goes on in this household *note to self: must try harder with this*.

For those of you out there like me who don't get chance to do much of this with the little ones, fear not, Tesco will sort you out. Reduced to 75p - DIY decorating on ready made cookies. I repeat READY MADE.

Let's face it, aside from the time and mess issue could you actually buy the ingredients for that price? I think not.

You're welcome ;)

*Not a sponsored post, I just thought they were great and actually tasted good.

Mama - daughter time...

Because sometimes you just need lunch and some quality with your mama...

Once you're a parent I think you have a whole new level of appreciation for all that yours have done for you. 

I really do have the best mum.

Because sometimes, just sometimes, you need this and preferably mid afternoon at that...
