It’s a Bing Thing – The New Bing Bunny Magazine

Last week we had a rather hectic trip around the South of England after landing back in the country from a whirlwind visit with friends in Dublin. One of the things about living abroad is that when you get chance to get home you need to bomb around to see everyone. Travelling has taken it’s toll on my little people, with an overdose of screen …

#blogstorm – When you lose your Blogging Mojo

It’s kind of ironic running a blogging tips linky when you’ve lost your blogging mojo. It’s not that I haven’t anything to write about, I have lots of ideas sparked from wine soaked conversations with other mum friends, to random chat with the husband, to trips out.  I have wonderful days out ready to share, new products aplenty, thousands of photographs and I may even …

The Battle of the Sun Cream with Children

Summer is here, we’ve had sunny days, and if we haven’t then we may be heading on holiday. One thing we know is that when the temperature starts to crank up, when the sun is cracking the flags, it’s time to perform the dance of the sun cream. Which is less of a dance, more of a battle… Step One: Collect your sun cream A …

Just a Mum

Mum. Mummy. Mama. Mother. Just a mum.  A mummy.  A mama. A mother. Just. A small, insignificant word that when used makes whatever follows as insignificant as it can be. Just a mummy. But I’m not just a mummy.  A mum.  A mama.  A mother.  I’m so much more.  I’m not just anything. I’m Laura. I like to bake (and eat cake). I like to read. …

I never imagined I’d become an anxious person

Recently I’ve been finding myself anxious.  Not just your normal butterflies in your tummy nervous about something kind of anxious.  Full on anxiety attacks where I picture what is happening with total clarity yet am unable to do anything about it.  Even though it hasn’t happened.  And in the main is unlikely to happen anyway. Last week the husband was in Singapore, with limited access …

Cooking with Kids: Chocolate Cornflake Cakes

I love to cook with the Big One, and have been doing so since he was around 18 months old.  One of our very first recipes was making chocolate cornflake cakes, I mean who doesn’t love the crunchy yet gooey chocolate-y goodness that are chocolate cornflake cakes?! We had some butter left over from when we made No-Bake Maltesers Cheesecake from the delectable Wyke Farms so …
