With the recent end of winter programmes/ start of summer programme period I have found…

Makeitwithwords – Perfect ‘Instagram’ Gifts | Review

I am one of those people who loves to buy someone ‘the perfect gift’. At times like Christmas, I prefer giving presents than receiving them (I still love getting presents too – don’t get me wrong!) and can spend lots of time and money on each one.

Sharing my ‘talking tips’ for Speech Delay

Hey guys! So as you will have noticed I have been a bit absent on here since around Christmas. This is partially due to me just losing my blogging mojo, having no spare time because my children never slept at the same time and moving house. Mostly though it is because Aidan has really begun to find his voice. Since…

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.
