What’s on My Toddler’s Plate this Christmas

The big day is almost upon us! I don’t; know about you, but I’ve personally been peeling the kids off the ceiling for weeks now. The excitement in this house has reached fever pitch and I’m not sure there’s anything I can do about it now! So as Christmas day approaches and I’ve finally finished work (HOORAY!) my thoughts are turning to Christmas dinner preparations. If you read this post, you’ll know that we don’t do the traditional ’12 people around a turkey’ Christmas day anymore. In fact, last year we made the decision to allow every person in our little family to choose their own Christmas dinner- 2016’s table was adorned with lasagne, pizza, hot dogs… Perfect. The thing is though, that I still want the little ones to have something of nutritional value for their dinner- especially seeing as there will be so many sweets and chocolates hanging around throughout the day. So I thought I’d share what’s on my toddler’s plate this Christmas. (more…)

Re-claim your Pregnancy Superpowers with Sea Bands: a Giveaway!

I don’t know about you, but for me every single pregnancy has been different with my four. Apart from the nausea, that is. First time around I suffered for a couple of weeks so thought nothing of it at all, In fact throughout the entire pregnancy the only ailment I really remember was a bout of heartburn one evening towards the 40 week mark- pretty good going don’t you think? Pregnancy number two was a different matter entirely. I suffered from awful headaches, insomnia and extreme nausea- to the point where my sister-in-law very pointedly gifted me a pack of Sea Bands. I’d never heard of them, but I quickly came to rely on them to beat the nausea day in and day out. When it came to announcing pregnancies number three and four, most people already knew thanks to the tell tale bands on my wrists! And while I’ll admit that it was really only medication that helped in the end with my last pregnancy (read my posts Hyperemesis here), I can whole heartedly vouch for the power of Sea Bands for relieving the symptoms of nausea in pregnancy. I simply couldn’t have managed without them. Recently, Sea Bands have launched a new pregnancy toolkit with the help from experienced practising midwife, Gill Perks, and I’ve agreed to help spread the word. Honestly, Sea Bands are amazing for pregnancy related nausea- a natural and easy way to alleviate symptoms, so that you can re-calim your pregnancy superpowers! Read on to find out more, and to enter the giveaway to win a pair for yourself- I have five to give away! (more…)

Three Reasons to go Away for Christmas- Why we Do it!

For the third year in a row, we will be away for Christmas and we really cannot wait! For years and years I had wanted to be away for Christmas day. I always loved the idea of just taking the whole day as easy as possible, and to eliminate all the pressures that Christmas seems to bring. Now, with four children and family scattered all over the country and the world, my husband finally agrees! As the children have grown both in size and age, it’s become more and more clear that Christmas day needs to revolve around THEM rather than the rest of our extended family. That might sound selfish; it really isn’t meant to. But we have four little people who rely on us to make Christmas magical and that just doesn’t happen when you’re either stuck in a car all day visiting or you’re away from your presents. So, we go away and this year we’ve booked a log cabin with Forest Holidays! And just to reiterate my point a little further, here are three reasons to go away for Christmas. Who knows, maybe you’ll do it yourself next year?Three Reasons to go Away at Christmas_Ghostwritermummy.co.uk (more…)

2018 Career Goals with NCC Home Learning

Career Goals with NCC Home Learning_Ghostwritermummy.co.uk

A new year always seems to signal something in my brain that tells me I need to start making some changes. It’s silly really, because there are at least 365 days in every year, and any one of those can be the start of something new. A new direction. A new goal. A new mindset. We don’t need it to be January the 1st, but in many ways it makes perfect sense to start the new year with a new direction. Recently I was asked if I was interested in taking a home learning course with NCC Home Learning. At this stage in my life, I seem to be craving education once more. I want to learn new things, and as the kids grow old I want to sharpen my career, make my work a bit more of a focus in our family life and continue to show my kids that I work and I am good at what I do. I don’t write much about work on this blog, but I do write about personal developments and I guess that’s what this is. So here are my current career goals with NCC Home Learning…

Learning from home

I love NCC Home Learning because it means that even busy working mums can add another string to their bow, despite the chaos of trying to juggle work, kids and life. I don’t ever want to stop learning, but I’m at the point in my life (and career) where I need to fine tune what I’m doing. At the moment, much of my work is centred around marketing and copy writing, and I’ve been considering taking an official course in marketing for some time now. I finally feel, with three children in school and one in preschool four days a week, that the time is right to focus on my work a little more. And so I’ve enrolled in the NCC Marketing Diploma course! (more…)
