There’s no denying that we live in a fast-paced, whirlwind society. We want everything immediately; from food to friends to entertainment, we want the latest and the greatest, and we want it now. But rather than making us happier, all to often this lifestyle can make us feel like we’re running on a treadmill that is getting progressively faster. Just like the cladding fire disasters in the building industry, we take short-cuts, looking for a cheap alternative that creates the image we are wanting to present to the world and it could cost us big time. Life is rushing past us at such a fast rate that we barely remember each day, let alone take time to enjoy it! But it doesn’t have to be this way.
“Mummy Time” – these two words might seem very strange together. Usually, if these words are used together there will be an extra word at the start, that word being “NO’’, No Mummy time.

Trying to get the kids to sleep quickly is a battle I seem to fight every night! With 3 boys, bedtime usually starts around 6:45 and I get back downstairs around 8:15. I then spend the next hour trying to convince Flinn my 4-year-old, to stay in bed and marching him back upstairs after he has appeared with something really important to tell me that he hasn’t even thought of yet!
Ever since my daughter was born, I have become more and more aware of the simply astounding about of trash I create. As a single person, or even as a couple it was manageable but once you add a baby (or worse, 6 year old) to the mix, suddenly there are empty juice boxes, empty packets of crisps and, well, soap containers everywhere.
