Let’s face it some men are experts at this, they love to take their time, explore, touch and tease. Others are a little bit more wham, bam let’s go straight in. Us ladies though are akin to a luxury sports car – the more you treat us gently and take your time learning what makes us purr the better we get under the bonnet.
Living in debt, it’s a situation that some of us find ourselves inadvertently in through not paying off all out credit card charges. Even the most financially conscientious can find themselves racking up credit card debt due to unforeseen life events or just the lifelong habit of only paying off the minimum required. For those who find themselves dealing with the nightmare of multiple interest rated on multiple cards and needing to organise things better, relief may come through debt consolidation and chopping up the credit cards.
Miss Roo is on half term this week and so far we’ve survived day one. What this actually means is that I’ve roped in my mum for a week’s childcare whilst I attempt to juggle being a working mum. This morning she woke up earlier than normal and I could hear her feet pitter pattering down the stairs.
I’d not had a particularly good night’s sleep thinking things through for the summer holidays and financial bits and pieces and had no idea what time it was. The fact that my Lumie clock though hadn’t begun it’s gentle wake up informed me that it wasn’t yet 7am.
Books play a big part in our little house, Roo has developed a love of reading and it’s brilliant watching her come along with her books at school and she’s becoming more and more confident at sounding out her words. Every night we read her school books before bed and then have a story for her to snuggle down before good night cuddles.
Two books that we recently got sent to review were ‘Go To Sleep or I Let Loose the Leopard’ by Steve Cole, and illustrated by Bruce Ingman and ‘Butterfly and the Birthday Surprise’ by Mandy Archer and Kirsteen Harris-Jones, which is part of the Fairies of Blossom Bakery series.
Yesterday was a rather exciting day. Why? Well I was going to do my first weigh in at the gym since starting my gym programme two weeks ago as part of my #lose2stone challenge. I’ve been a member at the local Virgin Active club for just over 3 weeks and as part of my initial gym induction with my ‘One Direction’ PT Mark I had to get on the dreaded scales.
Scales are something I hate and seeing them flash at 85kg was pretty horrific, although encouraging at the same time as I knew I’d lost weight since September last year. This was my benchmark. I never wanted to see that number again. The number I wanted to see was 60kg. Ideally by May 26th when I head to Italy because I have my eye on a gorgeous bikini.
