Camp Bestival Ambassador 2017

camp bestival ambassador

I am so excited to be chosen as a Camp Bestival Ambassdor this year again!

Our time at Camp Bestival last year was the absolute highlight of our year and my children haven’t stopped talking about it since. That’s how you know you’ve created some of the best lifelong special memories for your children, when they go over their experience of it time and time again.

It’s fair to say we can’t wait to head back there this year and we are counting down the days.

The magical, amazing festival for families that is Camp Bestival at Lulworth Cove in Dorset, really does have something for everyone.. amazing live acts, brilliant music, comedy, crafts, sport, circus, funfair, bars, food and so much more! I defy anyone to not LOVE it as much as we did!

It’s the perfect place for novice campers too as all your neighbours on the camping site are families and everyone helps each other out. Everyone is super friendly and just so happy… enjoying these few days at the start of the Summer holidays  which really does kick the summer off perfectly!

But you don’t have to take your own tent if you don’t want to! There are so many different options available to you if you don’t fancy pitching up yourself! There’s the pre-pitched site….. normal tents but are already pitched for you to step right into. There’s a variety of funky tents to hire like the Bells and Yurts, fromt he basic to the luxurious. There’s the wooden Pod’s and the Cloudhouses! The choice is extensive so they can be sure to have the perfect sleeping options for you. There’s even a pop up Hotel this year! So pop over (get it) to the Camp Bestival website where you can see for yourself the choices on offer!

Being at a Festival with the kids is a wonderful feeling for them and for you. We stayed up late, donned the glitter, danced in a field at the main stage while listening to some amazing music! It’s a surreal experience to do this with kids but one that will stay with you forever!

The lineup this year includes acts such as Mark Ronson, T’Pau, Madness, Leftfield, All Saints, Anne Marie, Lightning Seeds and many more. That’s just the main stage. There are literally hundreds of other acts and attractions to see, in fact… you’ll be stumped for choice as to where you want to to be as you’ll certainly want to be in two places at the same time!

Being with great friends was, for me, the best thing! Myself and my best blogging buddies, Ruth from Rocknrollerbaby and Katy from Modern Mummy, left the men at home, pitched our tents together and had a blast all weekend while our kids ran riot!

There’s only two months to go till Camp Bestival so you’ve still got time to book those tickets! I cannot recommend it highly enough…. everyone that goes always goes back… this will be my friend Ruth’s fourth year and Katy’s fifth….. if that doesn’t tell you how awesome it is then I don’t know what will!

This will be our second year and we really can’t wait!

Hope to see you there ;)

Why taking a blogging break is good for you!

I guess it hasn’t gone unnoticed if you read my blog that I haven’t posted in a while. It wasn’t a conscious decision really, in that I didn’t plan it as such, I just didn’t feel motivated.

So I took a blogging break.

I was so busy leading up to Christmas and had a lot of other things going on. I don’t ever want this blog to be a chore and even though I have so many things I want to say here and many a tale to tell, I want to share them when I have time to properly write and not push any old rubbish out just for the sake of it. Something I think many bloggers end up falling into the trap of doing.

Mummy Endeavours was only ever supposed to be a hobby. Something to stimulate my brain I suppose, and give me a creative outlet when my twins were toddlers. I could never have forseen back then, three and a half years ago, how many opportunities it was going to bring my way and how busy it would make me! Being approached by brands to review products, even holidays and attend amazing events has been absolutely fantastic and for which I am very grateful. I love writing about the wonderful things we have been lucky enough to do, but lately I have felt like I’m not really writing about the things I set out to write about, and was feeling uninspired.

blogging break

Over the Christmas period I just let it all take a back seat. I think I needed the break. To fully switch off.

Has it done my blog any harm? Well, no. My stats have pretty much stayed the same, although any longer (it’s been just over a month) and maybe they would’ve taken a nosedive. In hindsight it’s probably advisable to have a few posts scheduled to go out during a break, which I didn’t do! My inbox is still busy too so….. nothing has been effected or changed at all!

Having time out has given me moments to reflect about what I want out of my blog. When you are constantly thinking about that next post, promoting it like crazy, checking emails every five minutes, there’s never any time to truly reflect or plan properly. You may find that your creative juices stop flowing. Writers block is very common. A blogging break can bring new inspiration and vision.

It’s also enabled me to get stuck into other non blogging related tasks that needed to be done. Stepping away for a longer period (than just for say, the weekend) means you can start some other projects that you’ve wanted to do for a while or simply clear those chores around the house! If you work too as I do, as well as having four children, there’s never enough hours in the day!

A blogging break can help you get organised and do all that admin that has desperately needed doing. Blogging is incredibly time consuming. It’s not just the planning and writing of posts, there’s the promoting, the social media, the reading and commenting of other blogs etc etc….. it can all get a bit much, however much we love it! All those bits and bobs that you know need doing but you can’t get round to can niggle away at you, causing extreme stress or burnout, which is definitely not good for your mental health.

You can spend more time with the family and sit on the sofa all night watching TV without feeling guilty that you’ve GOT to get that post written up!

The combination of getting tons of stuff done and resting/switching off from your blog can have a huge positive impact, creating the time to fully inspire you with lots of new ideas. Then you can come back to your blog feeling refreshed and raring to go.

It’s a WIN WIN!

So, if you’re thinking of taking a blogging break for whatever reason, and let’s face it, there’s a million and one reasons why you might need some time off, then just DO IT!

It’s OK.

If you’re uncomfortable with the idea of leaving your blog completely, there are a few things you can do to tide you over……

Run a competition or two – I had one running and this can help keep those stats up and give you something current to promote (if you’re still using a bit of social media here and there whilst on your break).

Schedule some posts - If you’re not happy with leaving a big space as I did, schedule some posts or revisit some of your older posts and give them an up to date tweak then re-schedule to go out. Or arrange a guest post.

Stay on social media – Not completely necessary of course, but keeping your toes dipped into at least one social media platform will keep you visible. And you may want to keep up to date anyway with your blogging friends. I stayed active primarily on Instagram because it’s the one I really enjoy at the moment and it meant I was still in the loop! I’m also in many groups on FB which I looked at occasionally.

Put the ‘be back soon’ post up – I didn’t do this because taking the break wasn’t planned and it’s tricky, because if people know you’re not going to be posting they won’t drop by and this could affect stats. But if you post frequently and you have nothing scheduled, it might feel better for you if your readers are aware of what is going on, especially if you’re planning a very long break.

The most important thing is not to panic.

Don’t worry that your blog is going to go off the radar and everyone will forget who you are and opportunities will dry up. They won’t. Many successful bloggers take long breaks and it hasn’t affected their popularity/ranking and your readers will understand.

Don’t feel bad about it. Allow yourself this time. Everyone needs a holiday from work don’t they?

Personally, although a little bit scary, I’m glad I’ve had some time away. It’s been difficult knowing what to say in this first post back, but now that I’ve taken the plunge and written this (hopefully helpful) post to break my blogging hiatus, I feel extremely motivated to get back into the swing of things and take my blog in 2017 to where I want it to be!

My 3 Blogging Bugbears

I love blogging, I really do. But these past few months I’ve been a little bit fed up with it.

And here’s why:

1. Time

This is a biggie. Blogging is no where near as easy as people may think, it’s incredibly time consuming and I could really do without it sometimes.

It was only ever meant to be a little hobby, whereas now it feels more like a full time job at times, and a very demanding one at that! Finding time for it has become increasingly challenging.

This intensified over the Christmas period, as I was busy with family life on the one hand, and wanting to chill out and do nothing but relax on the other. I had a backlog of posts I needed to get out and reviews to write up which was stressing me out immensely. Having a dinosaur of a PC and a virus riddled laptop to deal with didn’t help matters either… (the latter has since been rectified).

Ordinarily I spend my days either at work, keeping our home in order or looking after four children, including young twins and a high maintenance teenager (yes, they get a lot more demanding as they get older!).

My twins are struggling slightly at school, being the youngest in their year, so I’m spending more time going over reading and writing with them. My daughter is getting ready to take her 11+ exam this September (when she’ll have just turned 10.. go figure), so we are going over the dreaded verbal reasoning and maths. And Teen is taking his GCSE’s in 3 months time which means I’m having to constantly get on his case to revise.

Plus…

We are in the middle of a mammoth building project on our home as the extension has taken a new turn and started up again with a vengeance. We ran into some issues, roof related, a while back and things came to a standstill temporarily but work has now resumed and the whole house has turned into a building site! We’re still trying to live some sort of normal life whilst everything around us is literally crumbling!

So, at this very moment, time is a massive issue.

2. Guilt

If I sit down and watch TV of an evening, I feel guilty. I should really be blogging and getting those posts out, or on social media, networking and/or promoting somewhere.

When I’m not working my part time job, I might steal a few hours during the day at home to blog, which is my favourite time to write, but then I’m stressing about other things I should be doing around the house and feel guilty!

Posts need thinking about. I often find myself rushing if I have a deadline to keep to, and then I’m not entirely happy with the post. Which makes me feel guilty.

Yet, at the same time, I feel as though I don’t spend enough time on my blog. There are so many plans I made for it and lots of new ideas I’d like to implement but I just haven’t. And that makes me feel guilty!

And don’t get me started on the kids. More than anything, when my children are around, I want to be with them, doing things with them, even if it’s just watching tv with them….. I don’t want to look back in years to come and regret spending far too much time in front of a computer, or staring at my phone when the kids were little. The time they’re young goes so fast, I know this because I have a 16 yr old and it feels like yesterday that he was tiny. So if I do spend hours writing up posts when they’re around, I feel guilty.

3. Honesty

This has been troubling me for a while. It’s an issue that I didn’t really consider when I first started to blog but now it annoys the hell out of me.

I want to get personal.

I want to share more about me. Be more open.

But I can’t, because people read my blog! It’s a bit of a double edged sword. I mean, I WANT people to read my blog, of course, but because I’d like to write more about what’s going on my life; relationships, emotions, problems, opinions… as these are the things I believe my readers would appreciate, to help them connect with me, which in turn would be great for my blog….. But I don’t want CERTAIN people reading my blog! Or knowing about those things; people I know, people who I wish didn’t even know about this blog.

It WOULD make for interesting reading though!

I have to consider the children too. I don’t want to write anything that could be used in a negative way against them. Older kids are a lot less accepting. Something we may think is incredibly funny could be considered highly embarrassing for them! I’d like to write more about my Teen… there are some hilarious stories there, as well as some serious issues… but I can’t. He wouldn’t like it and I must respect that. The odd post is fine but I need to be careful, just in case his friends happen to come across it one day, which wouldn’t be difficult, not with everyone being all over social media.

There’s a lot to be said about blogging anonymously! Maybe that’s something I should consider in the future, as a little sideline…..

So that’s it, my three main blogging bugbears.

Even though I’ve made a big deal of them, they won’t stop me from writing. I just have to work around these little issues and find a balance. Blogging is addictive and the positives far outweigh the negatives. And as I said at the top, I do absolutely love it. It’s the one thing I have that’s just for me. It’s still my guilty pleasure, however much it irks me at times!  It’s taught me so much and I love the opportunities I’ve been fortunate enough to receive through writing my blog, even more so the fabulous people I’ve met, and I’m grateful.

Flash Mobs and Boden at the MADS

The MADS… otherwise known as the Mum and Dad Blog Awards take place annually in September and this year I managed to bag myself a ticket! I wasn’t up for an award sadly (I know!) although I was nominated – so thank you to that one person anyone that voted :)

Anyway, usually the only people that attend the awards are those bloggers who have been short listed, with a few lucky individuals who have either won tickets or managed to wangle one somehow! But this year, awards organiser Sally Whittle, who is the founder of TOTS100 who run the awards, invited bloggers to take part in a ‘Secret Project’  at the awards! This was open to both bloggers that were nominated and already going, but also open to others, and if you took part you automatically secured a place at the awards ceremony.

I remember from the social media coverage of the event last year that it seemed like such a fun night out… so I was definitely in! My friend Afra from Mad Mum of 7 also signed up so we both consoled ourselves in that whatever it was we would be doing (we were only told that it would be something fun and that we should not apply if we took ourselves too seriously!), we’d be in it together and we would have a right laugh along the way! I wasn’t too worried anyway, Sally wasn’t going to make us do something ridiculously awful…. was she?!

Back in July the ‘chosen few’ were split into two groups; those bloggers in the North and those in the South. We had a meet date arranged for the ‘Southern Bloggers’ as our group became known and Afra said she had an inkling as to what we would be doing. She had been chatting amongst friends and they had come to the conclusion that it may be a flash mob type thing!

the mads 2014So we thought it’d be fun to don some 80’s Fame inspired attire for the day! (sorry for grainy image of me!)

Afra was right. When we turned up Sally immediately asked (judging by our get up) if we’d got wind of the ‘Secret Thing’ somehow, which we hadn’t… it was just putting all the clues together I guess…. we had been told to wear comfortable clothes, trainers, be up for making tits of ourselves etc…. ‘the clues were there’ as they say on Through The Keyhole!!

It was great to meet the other victims bloggers… joining us for the ride as part of the Southern crew (not all in the photo carried on with our journey for different reasons so I won’t name them all!) but they were the lovely Kirsty from My Two Mums, Grace from Eats Amazing, Gretta from Mums Do Travel, and Steph from My Two girls. It was a pleasure getting to know them all. The meeting was held in a South London  school on what seemed like the hottest day of the year so far! Just perfect (not) for a load of unfit mums to learn a 4 minutes+ hectic dance routine in little more than an hour or so!! Cue lots of out of breath, sweaty and knackered bloggers!

The dance was choreographed and taught to us by the wonderful people at Stage Coach. The music was Olly Murs ‘I just want you to dance with me tonight’ and even though the routine was simple enough, it was proving tricky and utterly exhausting, especially in the heat. We were rigorously being put through our paces.

All the same, I have to say I loved it! I’m sure I was in the minority here on this day when most were wondering what the hell they’d let themselves in for…. but I really really loved it! I’m an old stage school pupil so this brought back memories of many an hour spent in a dance studio, albeit this time me being completely rubbish and I couldn’t remember the moves for love nor money! But it was such a fun afternoon!

Fast forward a couple of months of practising at every given opportunity.. (ahem) D Day arrived. The MAD Awards were happening and we would be meeting up with our fellow Northern bloggers to run through the dance routine all together for the first time.

We arrived at the Kensington Garden Hotel with quite a few hours to spare before the awards, so as to practise for our ‘performance’. After an hour or so and a lot of panicking and laughs later, we were ready! Kind of!

My Fabulous Boden Dress

For the awards, the wonderful people at Boden offered to supply us with a dress of our choice to wear from their fabulous collections! As the Secret Project, or ‘Flash Mob’ dance thing was, well, a secret…. we had to wear something to the awards that was both glamorous (so as not to cause suspicion) and comfortable enough to dance in.

There were so many gorgeous dresses to choose from but this is the dress I went for in the end…..

The Sohpia Dress

When the dress arrived I wondered if it was going to be glamorous enough, but I needn’t have worried because as soon as I put it on it looked amazing. I loved the ruched neckline, which is difficult to see in this image, but it gave a very flattering look. The dress fitted perfectly and the fabric was truly beautiful. It felt soft and tactile, silky, and it was lined with the softest of linings which gave the feeling of it being super luxurious. It’s not the sort of dress I would usually go for but I loved it and it me feel sophisticated.

boden dressI was in love with my dress and how it felt on me. I loved the feature of the zip at the back too, I thought this added an extra element to the stylish design.

The evening started off with hair and make up, lots of mingling, then drinkies….  before being seated for the meal.

All through the meal I had something on my mind! I was feeling VERY nervous about our dance and I couldn’t properly relax! I just didn’t want to forget the moves so I kept going over the routine in my head! I really needn’t have worried though because as soon as we heard our cue and the Olly Murs track started playing, the audience (that sounds funny!) were already clapping and cheering, they were great and really put us at ease!

The dance was amazing! Exhilarating – I loved it!  Here are some fantastic images courtesy of Tom Arber Photography:

the mads 2014Aww it was such a fantastic experience and one I’m so proud to have been part of. We all had a great time, and was relieved at the end when it had gone well :)

As you can see, I know it was over with quickly and was a very small part of the overall evening but all of us who took part were overcome at the end of our dance with a mixture of emotions… mainly relief, but also of happiness that we’d done it, we got through it and everyone loved it which made it special! My beautiful Boden dress was thoroughly put through it’s paces here too, and it looked fabulous throughout the night. I will, without a doubt be shopping at Boden again.. the quality of the dress is outstanding.

After the dance, the awards ceremony began. There were laugh out loud moments, down right silly as hell crazy moments and poignant, moving moments. If you want to see who won what, then take a look here on the MADS website, all the details are there. Compère Dr. Ranj was perfect for the job, he was funny and likeable and was easily up for the banter from a room full of crazy bloggers! If you don’t recognise him, he’s a kids tv presenter and has his own show on CBeebies where by he plays a doctor! Only he’s just playing himself. He is actually a REAL doctor!! Who knew?!

the mads 2014Here he is, Dr. Ranj with Sally – they were so funny together!

the mads 2014Myself and Jacinta with Dr. Ranj 

After the awards it was time to really let our hair down, although I didn’t stay too long as I had to get home, plans the following day.

It was a fabulous day and evening. Great to see the talents of some amazing bloggers being recognised and absolutely amazing to be involved in The Secret Thing so thank you Sally, the Tots team and everyone that shared the day and evening with me. x

Bank Holiday Bonanza with Morrisons

Morrisons have cut their prices on hundreds of products recently and wanted to challenge some customers to see if their weekly shop was cheaper than usual!

So they teamed up with Britmums and gathered up a whole bunch of willing Mummy bloggers, handed them each £80 worth of Morrisons vouchers and packed them off to go on a spending spree in store!

I was one of those lucky ones. I became a #MorrisonsMum!!

Obvs I was thrilled to be taking part in this challenge, I mean, who wouldn’t be? Food costs a blummin fortune these day doesn’t it?

We’re a fairly big family. Six all together. Including a greedy teenager who eats continuously. I know all kids want food all the time but this is on a different level completely! He could easily eat 80 quids worth of grub all by himself in a weekend!!!

I begrudge buying food. It annoys me. I always think about what else I could buy with the money, or how rich we’d be if we didn’t have to eat!!!

But alas. Eat we must, so this weekend was going to be great. Fully stocked cupboards courtesy of the very generous Morrisons. [Read more…]

New Job. New Exciting Times!

Back to work

It’s funny how things happen in life, how you can turn a corner and something new happens, something unexpected.

A few weeks ago I was having a conversation with a friend, a bit of a whinging session, I was feeling fed up and a bit pissed off to be honest. She’s a friend who I met through my daughter as her daughter and mine are best friends, in fact, I wrote about their friendship a little a while ago!

Anyway, my friend runs her own business, in fact she runs two…. she’s very successful and out of the blue asked me if I’d like to go and work for her!

I was completely taken aback, I wasn’t expecting it at all… she KNOWS me for gods sake, I would never have asked her for a job, even if I was looking for one because a) I wouldn’t want to put her in a position to have to say no and feel bad and b) I would’ve thought she might not want her perpetually late, scatter brain friend anywhere near her offices lol!

But she said she needed someone a couple of days a week to help out within her new venture and thought I’d be perfect for it, plus I have a sneaky suspicion she thought it would be good for me to get the hell out of the house now my twins are at school :)

I haven’t worked properly for years, I’ve enjoyed being a stay at home mum and being completely absorbed in all things kid related, so the thought of engaging my baby brain for something other than my blogging was slightly terrifying!

The role actually involves a lot of the things I’ve dabbling with at home in recent years during various projects, things along the lines of using WordPress, updating website content, PR and social media marketing!

I can do that!

I can actually do that?!

Of course I can. I do it most days in some way or another, but I never in a million years would’ve thought about applying for a job doing it…. yet here was someone putting her faith in me, offering me a fantastic role and giving me the opportunity to return into the workplace in a job that can fit around my children, where I can expand on my current skills and learn new ones.

And I absolutely LOVE IT!

I’ve been at work (feels weird saying that!) now for a few weeks. The offices are literally round the corner from my kids school and the hours are 9-3 which couldn’t be more perfect…. just gets better doesn’t it? The other members of the company are also Mums who are lovely and it feels great to be part of a team who are all striving to grow the business together, which is recruitment for Mums and a community based website.

I love getting ready for work too, wearing something a bit more interesting than my usual jeans and Uggs! Not that I’m dissing Uggs, I love mine. But it’s nice to get dressed up and look smart for a change, much dusting off of heels and skirts has been carried out! It’s feels good to be in an office again, having adult conversations and feeling  as though I’m part of a team!

Being out for the two days takes some getting used to though as it’s two days of housework/blogging that I’m losing, which needs catching up on. But hey, a small price to pay for the experience I’m gaining in my new venture :)


The Britmums February Meetup at the Royal Academy of Art – Sensing Spaces Exhibition

On Valentines day, instead of being whisked off on a romantic weekend I jumped on the train with some local bloggy friends and we headed into Central London for the Britmums Meetup!

It was pouring with rain… really I hear you say?…. what a surprise!

It was also cold but I knew I had to make the effort as it’s always nice to attend one of the Britmums get togethers and as it was at the Royal Academy there was the added bonus of visiting one of the new exhibitions they have running right now…. Sensing Spaces.

Sensing Spaces; Architecture Reimagined – is showcasing in the main galleries where some of the most renowned, original architects from around the world (other than Britain) have been invited to design and create large scale works for visitors to not only walk into, but to touch and sense too.

This groundbreaking exhibition provides a unique experience to hopefully stimulate the mind and ask ourselves the question: how do spaces make us feel? It wants us to truly explore and engage our senses, making us think about the architecture all around us.

There are seven Architects (or practices) commissioned by the Royal Academy in total, giving us unique but equally powerful, inspiring installations to walk through and be hands on with. They are ENORMOUS, real works of art in building form and each one so very different to the next. A specially made film in a room in the middle of the exhibition provides visitors with the opportunity to understand the methodologies of the architects involved.

Once we’d had a coffee and a catch up with the lovely Jennifer Howse, co-founder of Britmums and our fellow bloggers, we were treated to a talk by the exhibition’s curator, Kate Goodwin, giving us a bit of background to the whole idea and explain what she hoped visitors would take away from their experience.

We were then invited to wander around. I have to say I was rather excited.

Royal academy of art

This was the first structure we came to, any my favourite. The photo doesn’t doesn’t do the sheer size and breathtaking shape of the monument justice.

It was magnificent! And so unusual.

There are tiny holes throughout which visitors are invited to poke extra long straws through, that’s what all the coloured things you can see in this picture are. I suppose using your imagination and creating an usual shape with your straws before inserting them is what it’s all about!

Some people made intricate designs such as squares, although I'm unsure where they got their tape! I made a tree!!

As we wondered round we saw the rest of the buildings…

There was a dark looking arch which was made out of solid concrete and suspended structures, some of which blocked out the light entirely.

I think I saw most of this exhibition. I would like to go back with my family as I think they’d find it as interesting as I did. Or indeed on my own so I can concentrate and soak up the atmosphere that the structures created even more. It did have the effect that the Royal Academy hoped it would on me, the visitor, and that was it made me really stop and think about architecture. It was breathtaking and inspiring.

Take this next structure which was very different again. It was a journey in itself, a maze type labyrinth which led to a zen garden. It had the most amazing aroma similar to a fragrant burning candle which filled the senses.

It was thought provoking walking through here. The floor was lit up from underneath by LED lights which according to the Chinese architect, was supposed to give the impression of walking on snow at night through a forest.

Myself (on the left) and my bloggging chums in the centre of this structure, the mirror on one wall gave the illusion of open space!

After we had enjoyed the exhibition I had a sneaky photo taken in the beautiful lobby, next to this mammoth work of art!

The sheer size of some of the paintings is overwhelming

We had a great morning at the Britmums meetup, fab people and fab location. It’s worth making the effort to get together with other bloggers and Britmums because it’s always an enjoyable event!

I couldn’t have asked for a better place for the meetup to be held. Art isn’t something that I think too much about in my every day life so this was a fabulous opportunity and I loved it. I will definitely be back. My Teen was disappointed that I didn’t take him as he’s doing Art GCSE next year and would’ve found this interesting, but unfortunately he was at school. So I’ll be back with him and the rest of my brood! There really is something for everyone.

Thanks Britmums!

 

Sensing Spaces at the Royal Academy is running until 6th April 2014, so get yourself down there, the kids will love it too. It’s open daily until 6pm and has a late night opening on Fridays until 10pm.
