Income and Stats Report for September 2017

I apologise for being a few days late with last month’s income report. I’ve had so much work on it’s been nigh on impossible to keep up. Plus last week baby girl was really ill. The worst she has ever been. She had some horrendous virus that caused a high temperature and vomiting then a horrid rash came out. I had to take time off from my day job at short notice which isn’t the best. I don’t get paid if I don’t go in.  Luckily when baby girl was napping I cracked on with some blog work to cover my loss in wages.

Anyway here we are at my Income and Stats report for September 2017.

(If you never caught up with last month’s you can find that one here)

How To Prepare a Guest Bedroom

With less than 12 weeks until Christmas it’s time to start thinking about preparing for guests staying with you. Most people have family members stay with them over Christmas and we are no exception. My sister lives in Canada but always comes home for Christmas. She normally spends time at mum’s and with us, but because we moved into our new house back in June, the guest bedroom still needs some love. It’s the one room we use to dump unpacked boxes in!

By taking part in Bed Guru’s #GuestBedReady campaign it gives me the perfect excuse to declutter the room.  Get it to how I want it to be – the perfect guest bedroom to get a great night’s sleep!

The main focus of a guest bedroom is of course the bed. I always prefer a normal divan bed for the spare bedroom because they can come with storage drawers underneath which is perfect for storing the spare bedding. Bed Guru has a great selection of guest beds to suit any guest bedroom.

Have you also thought about the versatility of your guest room? Well over on my other post you can use this bed to arrange your room in many ways to suit your guests.

Our Families Need Us: Protect Your Family by Knowing What to Do After an Accident

We all know what to do to protect our families before an accident occurs. Three good ways are to make sure everyone wears their seat belts, ensure that your vehicle is in top condition, and focus on driving. But no matter what precautions we take, accidents are almost inevitable. The good news is that it is even easier to protect your family after an accident than it is before the collision.

Protect Your Family By Knowing What To Do In An Accident

One phone call to a personal injury lawyer representing clients to protect them is usually all it takes. The attorney can then take care of the rest, from the medical attention your family needs today to the financial compensation they need tomorrow.

My Hospital Care Story on the Journey to have my Daughter

Over a year ago I wrote about my birth story. Now as I’m newly pregnant with baby number 2, I have lots of time to reflect on the care I received during my hospital stay. In fact it’s given me plenty of time to look back on the start of my medical care, from 2013 on that day I started miscarrying….

Don’t get me wrong the NHS is a godsend to this country, but we all know unfortunately it’s not what it used to be. Staff are overstretched and underpaid. At times like these the phrase clinical negligence crops up all too often.

The #ChileanEasyPeelers Challenge with Britmums

It’s gets to this time of year and the colds come about. In fact as I’m writing this the household has the sniffles, sore throats and runny eyes.

One way we like to get loads of Vitamin C is to munch on little oranges as well them or mandarins/clementines/satsumas giving them the proper name.
