Teach Your Kids to Code


Kids need to learn to code! They really do.

It's a great way to build logic and maths skills.

And many of the most interesting and best paid jobs when they grow up will involve coding.

Plus you know what else ... coding is fun!!

And incredibly creative.

But how on earth are you as a mum ... who has maybe never coded a thing in your life ... going to help your kids learn to code, particularly if you are home schooling???!!!

Luckily, help is at hand :-)

5 books by bloggers that make great Christmas gifts




There are some super awesome books by bloggers.

I'm not talking about the 'how to blog' books.

I'm talking about books that non-bloggers will enjoy as much as bloggers.

Here's my pick of books authored by bloggers that have either already landed on my bookshelf or are on my Christmas wish-list.

Hopefully the list will give you food for thought for your own Christmas wish list or inspiration for Christmas gift buying.

Save More Money on Groceries


We've saved a whole heap of money on our groceries in the last year.

But I had a niggling feeling we could save more.

I've cut out loads of stuff we just didn't need ... particularly cleaning products!

I make sure I stick to my shopping list and I know my unit prices so I can either buy bulk or shop the sales to get the best deal easily.

And I cram my freezer chock-full to cut waste.

But you know what?

There was still stuff thrown out every week!!

Hey Busy Mums... Stop Multitasking, Start Monotasking



Does multitasking keep you constantly busy but never feeling like you've actually achieved much?

Do you realise that every time you stop focusing on a project to ‘quickly’ do something else, your brain takes valuable time to get back into gear on your original project....

...so overall, you've actually increased your workload?

Do you ever wonder if there’s a way to jump off the multitasking hamster wheel? 

I do!
