Baby Gender Reveal | Baby No 3

I cannot Believe I'm about to say this I can finally reveal baby Duke No3 is a BOY! 
I think I'm still in shock... I never thought I'd be a mum to a baby boy and here I am feeling my son's kicks and wriggles. Poppy from the get go was adamant it was a baby seriously she would get really annoyed if we said it might be a sister. Her reply was always "I already have a Baby Phoebe, I need a baby brother called Wosy (Rosie)". Honeslty, every day she would talk to bump and say "baby brother said he loves me ".

To be honest, I also had a very strong gut feeling from the start. I've never been sick during my pregnancies but the nausea was terrible this time round, the extreme tiredness, the shape of my bump was different, my skin broke out in acne at week 6 and cleared up by week 13, I still get the odd spot here and there but nothing like it was during the first trimester. We also tested the old wife's tale of the ring theory it went back and forth every time, for the girls it went in a circle. My midwife also said with that the heart beat sounds like a boy... oh and the cravings; bread, meat (mainly chicken), rice, potatoes, etc... I had completely gone off all fruit and veg, sweets/chocolate and tea. In fact i've still not touched a cup of tea! but luckily baby boy likes some fruit, veg and chocolate now. 

As a family we are extremely excited for this next chapter, its completely new to us this time as I'm so used to having girls! Poppy is so excited to pick outfits for her Brother and Michael and I can finally buy cute baby boy clothes, picking a Name is going to be super hard as we had already picked out baby girl names. I hope you stick around for the Journey

How to Declutter your Home and Keep it that Way

Time to declutter What helps me destress, be productive and keep myself organised is getting rid of all the bits and bobs i keep laying around the house. Yes, that drawer full of crap and all the kids toys that keep mounting up after Christmas and birthdays. I start with 4 bags; charity, selling, friends/family and bin. You don't have to do all of these in one day, pick a room or an area for one afternoon while the baby sleeps and the toddler is settled with snacks and a colouring book and get busy. *Rooms* Bathroom- the cabinets, products you dont use or are out of date, bath toys, etc... Kitchen- food packaging, out of date products, pots and pans you don't use or need to replace Living room- the mounting of paper work hidden in drawers, kids toys, shoes, etc... Dining room- ( same as above) Bedroom- clothes you don't wear, brought but never used, old bed, bedroom drawers and tables, worn out shoes (good quality shoes can be repaired fairly cheaply s

Money saving Hacks | Christmas | 2020 edition |

It's that time of the year...   Remembering all the kids Christmas activities, nursery and school nativity plays, Christmas gift shopping, scheduling friends and family to come over during the holidays, teacher gifts, phonics, cooking the Turkey....   1- Plan Christmas a year to 6 months in advance  I know this sounds nuts but honestly knowing what is happening and who you're visiting makes it a lot easier and less stressful.  2- Buy gifts in the boxing day and January sales. Buy and stock up throughout the year on all the sales. It's amazing how much money you can save by doing this. I manage to save up to £200/£300 by doing this each year.  3- The things you don't think of buying in those sales. Wrapping paper, christmas cards, tape, gift tags, gift bags, Christmas arts and crafts for the kids, stickers, advent calendars (the non-chocolate ones) I brought the Harry Potter charms bracelet advent calendar and frozen 2 advent calendar in Sainsburys

5 creative ways to make extra money

1- sell unwanted items Is it time to do a clear out? Need a little extra money? Sell those trousers you've not worn in 3 months and sell the dress you've only worn twice.  Make sure all items are washed, no marks and no rips etc... these are all things that will help you in the selling process. Take lots of photos of the items, compare on other selling sites to make sure you check out your competitors. Good places to sell are facebook pages, Ebay, depop, Amazon, car boot sale and friends or family  2- creative skills  Are you creative with woodwork, clay, jewellery making, etc... if so put these hobbies into a place online and sell them! Don't forget to charge for materials, hours per day, time to take photos and uploading,etc. 3- teach another language  If you have a second language then good on you, another skill to write down on your cv! Launch a new website of what you can provide, zoom language classes, work sheets, online courses, etc. Make it clear on what you can pr
