Potty training made simple

When you start reading all about potty training, it’s an absolute minefield – I had no clue what to do or how to do it – let alone when to start! I had heard though that boys often are ready slightly later than girls – so I wasn’t in any rush! Thankfully, our nursery were […]

2019 – M.I.A

As the year draws to a close – I’M BACK!!!!!!! And, I couldn’t be more pleased! Those of you who follow me on Instagram (@mummysetra) are probably up to date with my 2019 journey, but for those of you who don’t – you may have thought i’d given up on my blog?! WRONG! So, where […]

‘Surely it’s time to have another?’

You find a boyfriend, and the question everyone asks you after you have been together a while is ‘any wedding bells?’ You get married, and then the question turns into ‘when are you having a baby?’ You have a baby, and then the question turns into ‘when are you having baby number 2?’ Anyone else […]

Here’s how I saved £1000 in 4 weeks!

As the 1st January comes round each year, most people think about tightening their belts a little, and look for easy ways to do so. I have done exactly that over the past month and thought i’d share the pretty simple ways how I have saved £1000 in the space of 4 weeks!   Join […]

Why only set goals at New Year?

I’m not sure why people tend to wait until the new year before they set themselves new goals –  for moral support? An obligation to set goals because others are? Don’t get me wrong, i’ve always been the same: ‘Next year, i’m going to………..’ ‘From January i’m going to…………’ This year, having had a few […]

Why i’ve never appreciated Crimbo Limbo – until now!

Crimbo limbo – the time between Christmas and New year – also known as Twixmas? Say what? How is that the case? What’s it got to do with Twix?! (Nothing I know, but that’s what the word makes me want….. a twix!) It’s 11 years since I finished uni and started working full time, and […]

Have you tried the four gift rule?

Our first Christmas with a baby was totally overwhelming – especially where presents were concerned – and we hadn’t even given him anything from us! He had 30 + presents to open on Christmas Day, and needless to say we were all a bit sick of opening them – but everyone insisted on them being […]

Toddler snacks

Snacks – just how many can one toddler put away? I’m sure they eat every hour or so as a toddler – god knows where they put it all. I’m one of these mean mummies who hasn’t started giving anything that has sugar in yet (cakes / biscuits / ice cream), so  I try to […]

From teething to brushing – our journey so far!

TEETHING hit us very early on when the little man’s first tooth came through at 3 months old! We had a few products that really helped us with the early teething journey, which can be found in one of my earlier blog posts. One of those products was the Brush-baby teether which we ended up using for […]

A weekend in the New Forest

It was supposed to be a weekend in Paris, but, in true working mum style, i’d left it till the last minute to book tickets, and prices were extortionate! So, I needed a plan B. We needed a weekend away, and as it was in between our birthdays, and Father’s day weekend coming up, it […]
