Everyday we go through the numbers with baby girl. She can now count up to 10 no problem at 2 years and 3 months, but the alphabet no so much. So this is our next project to learn all about letters and phonics. I’m always on the lookout for different books to entertain baby girl and we came across this Animal Alphabet Fun Book by Susan Thomas. From the publishers at Austin Macauley.

Baby Diaries #3 – Second Time Around

I never knew having a second baby would be so hard. In fact it’s one of the hardest things I’ve ever attempted in my life. Being up by night then not having the chance by day to nap like first time around is a struggle. Running around after a toddler who has endless energy is hard.

Baby Diaries #3 - Second Time Around (1)

I always thought I would be able to cope, but I haven’t. This is extremely hard for me to admit, but I’ve needed help. I’m lucky that my mother in law just lives across the road and is always on hand to take baby girl outside for a walk or just to play in the garden so I can have some rest bite. Even if it’s just to watch Grey’s Anatomy!

Personalised Stationery from Ryman

Before I became I blogger I was always fascinated in stationery. Now that obsession has got bigger! Yes I’m calling it an obsession because I can’t go into any shops without checking out the stationery section. Personalised stationery is even more fun!

When we got the chance to get some items from Ryman and have them personalised, I thought it would be ideal for my blogging corner. Ryman offers personalised gifts and stationery items for the whole family. They are ideal for gifts, anniversaries, a new job, birthdays and Christmases. I think a personalised item is a very thoughtful gift. Ryman’s personalised range include pens, notebooks, mugs, diaries, prints, frames and gift wrap.

How to Get Yourself Motivated This Month

Getting yourself motivated can be quite a difficult task and many people struggle to get anything done due to a lack of motivation. The good news is that getting motivated doesn’t have to be hard and we have come up with some steps that you can follow to help get yourself motivated this month for whatever you want to get to. Keep reading to find out more!

Set Your Goals

One great way to motivate yourself is to actually sit down and plan what you want to achieve. You won’t be able to know if you have managed to achieve your goals unless you set them in the first place. Make sure not to set too many goals as you might struggle to get yourself motivated when you are overwhelmed by everything you need to get done. Set a clear goal and you’ll get motivated soon enough.
