Take time for those that matter; Blogtober Day #27

As parents we often forget how important it is to not be parents for a bit, of course, we are still parents but finding time to just be Dan and Charlotte is equally as important as spending time with your kids.

When you become a parent you often lose yourself (not like Eminem) but you lose your identity, you forget who you were before you were “mum” and “dad” as much as you love those little darlings with all your heart and cherish the moments you have with them (some more than others) it can get you down just doing the same thing day in day out and not getting any “me” time or any time as a couple. Children are made out of love (mostly) so don’t forget to love your partner just as much as you did before. Make the effort to have date nights or play a board game at home when the kids are asleep. Keep working on your relationship, children don’t always bring people together, sometimes children tear couples apart. Nothing to do with the child itself but due to stress, lack of time as a couple and little effort with each other.

Today’s post is a little shorter than usual because I’m practising what I preach and we are going for a date night.

We all make time for what we feel is important in our lives


10 Gifts for His Christmas List; Blogtober Day #16

The next few posts will be follow-ons from my last post, I’m going to be doing a list of gift ideas for the men in your life in this post. Men can be so hard to buy for because when you ask the majority of the time they just say I don’t know. Which is unbelievably frustrating, Just tell me what you want!!

Anyway here are some of my favourite gift ideas:

  1. I thought this idea was pretty cool, it’s something I’ve never seen or heard of before and I think its brilliant they also do 100 places to visit, 100 books to read, 100 movies to watch, 100 dishes to try etc…

2. Personalised men’s wallet


3. I love a good glass and so does Dan, everywhere we go he seems to look for a new pint glass. This tumbler glass is amazing.

4.I have no clue why I’m out of bed T-shirt


5. Are any of the men in your life a little too obsessed with golf?

6. Or has someone got a green finger?

7. For when they’re just “resting their eyes”

8. Men like to match with their children too!

9. As tough as men like to act, the little things off the kids mean just as much to them as they do to you.

10.  There’s something about men trying hot foods that I will never understand but they seem to love to try things the hotter the better.
