15 things I've learnt about my son

by , in
Our children are our lives, they depend on us for everything. We love them unconditionally, even when they're being twats. We spend an enormous amount of time with. How much do we really know about them? Do we ever ask them what they like?


Well I did, I know my son. I know what he likes doing and what he doesn't, but do I know the detail, the everyday stuff that you might not think, such as his favourite colour etc? I asked him 15 questions and he duly answered. You can see his responses below...

Instagram experiment

by , in
In this next post of my #BlogLife series, I wanted to try out an Instagram experiment. This experiment was to try and gain more followers and what was the most effective way of doing this.


This experiment lasted five days. You can see my results below and what I believe is the best way to gain more followers on Instagram.

Odeon cinema and Lego Batman Review

by , in
This Sunday I was blessed with a day off from work. Joseph and I both love Lego and we both love Batman so what could be better than going to see the Lego Batman movie at the cinema? Nothing that's right.


So, Sunday morning we got up, had our breakfast got ready and then realised we still had two hours to go before the film started. Damn kids getting up early.

How Twitter can help your blog

by , in
Social media plays a big part in the blogging world and Twitter is right up there with the best social media format. It can be a bit daunting though when you first create an account. Here I will try and explain how I use twitter and how I got 2900 followers in 7 months.


In this #BlogLife series, I have already written a post on social media and apps/websites I use to help with blogging. One of the apps that helps me with Twitter is Crowdfire. You can read about that in the apps I use post.

Karate Kid

by , in
This week Joseph had his first Karate lesson. He has been learning to swim for about 6 months but he really didn't enjoy it. Like, really didn't. I wanted him to keep learning to swim as I feel it is very important but it wasn't really fair to force him into something he hates. I wrote a post on my feelings about that, you can read it here.


Joseph is five years old and the Karate class he goes to accepts children as young as five. We thought he would really like it so we decided to try it.

Things I wish I knew before I started blogging

by , in
Blogging is massive. Like, really massive. It is something I have enjoyed since I started my first post in July 2016. I had thought about starting a blog for 7 months before finally writing my first post. I had no idea what I would write about. I have two children so topics aren't in short supply so that was a good start. There are many things I read about blogging before I actually wrote my first post but here is a list of the things I wish I knew.
