Busy B Planner

I’m Ellen and I am a planner addict! Stationary and I have had a long term love affair but I am relatively new to the world of planners. Just before Aidan was born I realised that if I planned to have any sort of order to my life I would need to keep lists and written reminders – thus my…

Focus Ireland Christmas Campaign

Today I walked through my small City to pick up a few bits for Christmas and I was shocked to see people living in doorways and the hollows of the medieval walls. It is truly heartbreaking to think that people will have to spend Christmas this way – that includes 2,400 children across the country! This year Focus Ireland are…

Our Stay at The Connacht Hotel | Review

A few weeks ago you may have seen on my social media that we visited The Connacht Hotel in Galway. The lovely team over there contacted me at the beginning of the year to arrange a visit to their family friendly hotel and as you can guess I was more than happy to take them up on their offer.

Moving to our ‘Dream House’*

In the not too distant future, we will be packing up and moving house. This is not something we had planned or really want to do but our landlord wants to sell and we aren’t in the position to buy. We have spent weeks talking about things we would like and dislike in our new house. Obviously, a house that matches…

Why we chose the GFCF Diet & Our Results

Last week I wrote about the GFCF diet including what it was, why it is supposed to help and foods to avoid. In the future, I will share some of the brands and recipes I have found which are both gluten and dairy free. Today I want to talk about the signs that made us try the GFCF diet and improvements…

Why I Don’t Co-Sleep

Here, my friends is why I don’t co-sleep! I love the idea of co-sleeping, all the lovely pics of parents snuggled up with their little ones and that quality bonding time. However, in my house, the reality is far from that!

Adorable Kids Halloween Costumes

October is a crazy month for us. It seems we have things planned for the entire month so I am trying to get the boys Halloween costumes sorted early. I haven’t decided what to dress them as yet (although everyone says Finn should be a pumpkin because, yano, the hair.). Here are some of the super adorable kids costumes I found…

The GFCF Diet – ”The Autism Diet”

Previously, I mentioned that we had changed Aidan’s diet in the past few months. I came across the GFCF diet purely by accident and decided to give it a go. It is a struggle to find too many resources on the GFCF lifestyle other than a handful of websites. So, I decided to talk a little bit about it on…

Our New Normal | Life Update

I admit I’ve been putting off this post for a while. Why? I’m really not sure but I guess I wasn’t sure if I was ready to share it with the world yet. (Pfft as if the whole world reads my blog!).

Pamper Time

Like most parents, I tend to put myself at the bottom of the pile. I usually sort the kids, the dinner, the laundry, the house and then fall into bed. A few weeks ago, I attended the Deise blogger event and was given a very generous goody bag (actually 5 generous goody bags!). As the event was more beauty and…
