As mums, we have a million things going on. The mental load is a real thing and many of us feel weighed down by it. It can be hard to carve out any time at all to focus on ourselves, our mental and our physical health. It’s hard to find the time for the most basic things and quite often exercise is one of the things we let go. So how can we incorporate it into our everyday lives when we have so much on?
Ever since I watched the Jetsons as a kid I’ve dreamed of having my own robot servant. My sister and I would enter all those newspaper competitions in the 80’s that promised you your own robot – but we never won! Now, with the DEEBOT OZMO 900, I finally have my own! The DEEBOT OZMO 900 is my very own robot vacuum that cleans my house while I’m out. I’m in love.
Every time I get into the car I think about safety. What mum doesn’t? But this morning I started thinking about everyone on the road, not just our family, after I read that around the world there are more than a million road deaths each year, and 1266 in Australia last year. Yikes. But the good news is that like everything, there is a way that I can personally do my bit in reducing this.
So, it’s no secret that I have a thing for vacuum cleaners! Who knows why – I hate cleaning. But there is something so satisfying about a good vacuum. It creates instant clean! So, I’m excited to be reviewing the new Hoover React – it has headlights guys! It’s Hoover’s newest StickVac and it’s so damn fancy. Let’s take a look at what it can do for us…

What kid doesn’t want their own electric kids’ car? Tully and Mylo were beyond excited when Kidz Auto sent them an amazing pink electric jeep to try out. It was so cute. After the initial squabbling over who was going to drive they just had the best time when it arrived. They have been cruising the streets for weeks in it now.
Guys, it’s finally happened. I’m officially 40. I know, time flies! Well, I may be 40 but I feel like I’ve achieved a fair bit. I have got married (twice), raised two kids basically to adulthood and had a third, had a very varied career, built up this blog, traveled, built a house and met so many amazing people along the way.

So, I have a confession to make. I am a slow cooker virgin. Yep, that’s right! I know there are whole Facebook groups dedicated to slow cooking and the devotees of the slow cooker, but I’ve never, ever tried them. I don’t even cook quick, let alone slowly. So, when Crock-Pot invited me to try their brand-new Crock-Pot Express Multi-Cooker, I was hesitantly interested. I mean, what do these things actually do?
We need a lot of activities over the school holidays and we LOVE our Merlin Pass. It gives us access to so many fun things in Sydney. We often head to Darling Harbour and visit SEA LIFE or WILD LIFE.
These holidays we headed to the Seymour Centre in Sydney to watch Hamlet Prince of Skidmark. This hilarious take on the classic is by The Listies, one of our all-time favourite kids’ performers. They are like a kid version of Lano and Woodley, with a whole lot of fart and poo jokes. Find me a kid that doesn’t think that’s hilarious!
A bike is like a badge of honor for most kids, and once they kick the training wheels, it becomes the definition of freedom. Kids feel ownership over their bikes and customizing them has offered a sense of pride for bike owners since their inclusion into our everyday lives. So what are some of the best bike accessories to have?
