One Less Thing to Worry About…

Having lost my dad at 25 to cancer and my mum being widowed at just 49 I know the importance of life insurance, but what about critical illness insurance? As many of you know I have a kidney disease, it's not ideal, but it's part of me. Living with a chronic disease is something I'm used to, but it also makes me aware of how life can change, how your health can change and that you need to protect your loved ones. This is why getting critical illness cover is important to me.

Health And Fitness -The Gallery 219

This week's Gallery Prompt at from the lovely Tara over at Sticky Fingers is Health and Fitness.

My boys are very active and I keep all my children fit and healthy. However, I don't do a lot of exercise. I need to do more. I eat not too bad, but apart from the odd dance class I don't do much. I love to dance, but not found anything else I really like to do. Any recommendations for me?

I have done well on the weight loss front and this is what I thought I'd show for this week's gallery. For Health and Fitness I thought I'd share my in between and my before weight loss pictures. The first picture was taken at Christmas when I'd lost 28lbs. The second one was back in August last year just before I started the diet. I am at 36lbs lost and still have 8lbs to go. I will post another picture when I reach my target. Give me something to aim for. This last wee bit is hard.

Don't Burst the Bubble Wrap Boy....

Books are a huge part of my life, they always have been and I love that they are a huge part of my children's lives. All three of my children love to read and I hope they continue on their journey of magic, hope and a little mystery around the corner you get with books. I can't imagine a world without books can you?

Review - Kärcher Multi Purpose Vacuum

Having three children around they certainly make a mess, from crumbs, bits of food, bits of paper, crafting, etc. I'm a bit of a neat freak, which is hard with three children as you can imagine, so having the right tools to hand makes all the difference. A good vacuum is hard to come buy. I like one that does it all and the Karcher Multi Purpose Vacuum does just that.

Colour - The Gallery 218

This week's Gallery Prompt at from the lovely Tara over at Sticky Fingers is Colour.

There are so many pictures I could have chosen for this prompt, but when it came through on my emails on my phone, my husband had just handed me these. I am not a big flower fan, so it's rare I get any. I knew these had to be my photo for this week. They look so vibrant in colour don't they?

Light - The Gallery 217

This week's Gallery Prompt at from the lovely Tara over at Sticky Fingers is Light.

I love the way the camera catches the light at times. I managed to capture a gorgeous one of the light hitting Little Miss face at Christmas with the tree lights and then I captured one a few weeks ago when I was out photographing pictures in the snow.

Inspiring Active Kids & Win £200 Sainsbury's Vouchers

Active Kids

My children are very active. They love doing sport, especially football. My oldest Lucas would kick a ball about from morning to night, not ideal in a living room, but if he got away with it he would. However, they can get distracted with modern day technology like tablets. It's important to me to get them outdoors and even do something indoors if the weather is too bad.
