Fabric and Sewing: DIY Project for Business Cards

Fabric and Sewing: DIY Project for Business Cards.

With my business cards designed and ordered ready for BlogOn, I was in need of something to put them in. My solution was to try and make a holder myself. Fabric and sewing: DIY project for business cards.

This weekend, I am off to my first ever blogging conference BlogOn. Yay! A month or so ago, I made a to-do list. Between sourcing a suitcase and getting a Christmas jumper I needed to order business cards. Although I still haven’t got that jumper yet.

Camping with the kids - Holme Valley Camping and Caravan Park - FI

Camping with the kids – Holme Valley Camping and Caravan Park

Choosing a good campsite can make a camping trip, so when I had a few friends recommend a site not that far away, I wanted to see what it was all about.  Here is what I thought: Camping with the kids – Holme Valley Camping and Caravan Park.

Over the past 2 weeks, we have made two trips to Holme Valley Camping and Caravan Park. First time to see how Ro would like camping, and second because J really wanted longer time camping. This gave us more time to look around the site, and try out some of the facilities, including the on site food shack Kampers Kitchen.

First camping trip of 2017 – Would Ro like it?

Getting out for our first camping trip of 2017 made for a happy J. The question was, how would Ro like her first camping experience? The verdict is in.

Change is as Good as a Holiday? – I’m having both.

 

They say a change is as good as a holiday, and as it has seemed to have worked out, I get to have both. 

There is always that extra spring in your step when it’s the last day of work before a couple of weeks annual leave. That down time you really need, and today for me is that day. We have plans to go to the seaside, camping and just have general fun together. Most importantly making memories. So is as they say, a change is as good as a holiday ?

Becoming a Mum – Hopes, Dreams and Heartbreak

For as long as I can remember the one thing I always wanted was to be a mum. Although becoming a mum was not as easy ride.

When I was in my first year of high school, I can still remember an English assignment I had to do. The assignment was to write a letter 10 years in the future, telling the 12 year old me what I was doing.  I can remember vividly what I wrote down.  The letter stated I was in my own place, in a relationship and had 2 children. I was only 14 years out ! Continue reading “Becoming a Mum – Hopes, Dreams and Heartbreak”
