We have had a pretty chilled long weekend with not much happening due to 3 out of 5 of us being a bit under the weather. We have spent time reading, drawing, building puzzles, playing hangman, playing dress up, watching Matilda and superman cartoons (a real hit) and drinking hot chocolate from the biggest mugs we own. I usually feel like weekends that aren't filled with plans are a bit of a waste, but a little bit of unplanned down time has been good.
I think hot cross buns are my all time fave, I have taken to putting butter AND melted chocolate on the top. Eat it warm and drippy and YESSSSS!!! M xx
This made me chuckle 😂
Today we were invited to the @childsfarm tea party at Ripponlea Estate. Beautiful products, people and venue!
I’ve put a whole bunch of pictures from the day in my stories so please check them out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We really do love the products that @childsfarm team have made. Both the kids use it, we use it because we basically all shower together anyway. Most of you have commented on Oscar’s hair; 2 years old and still no hair cut and why would we when it looks this good!!
Thank you for having us!
#MarchMeetTheMaker D A Y 24 : Customers/feedback⠀
So far I have received some really lovely feedback from customers. BUT I am really rubbish at collating it and using it across my platforms. It means the world to me to hear that my products are enjoyed by little people and big people and that they've 'done their job' especially as gifts.⠀
Customers are everything, and I strive to give the best experience and service I can. This is a tough job when you're on your own because customer care rightly takes time and energy. So sometimes I dropped the ball, sometimes orders are delayed, sometimes I can't get to reply to that message or Instagram comment. And that makes my stomach flip because each one is a missed opportunity to make the customer feel like they are important and valued.⠀
In today's market place, instant messaging and transparency are key. Less than great photography or branding can be forgiven, but poor customer service and poor dialogue, well that cannot. Many a time have I ditched a business or service as they just don't seem to care about me as a customer.⠀
I would be devastated if any of my customers ever felt like that. Mistakes can be rectified but you only get once chance to respond to unhappy or dissatisfied feedback so you have to make it count. We are judged not on the mistakes we make but on how we respond to them and move to make things right.⠀
Hopefully mistakes and problems are few and far between and customers are keen to come back for my products again. Complacency breeds failure. So whether it's your first purchase or your tenth, to quote Foreigner, it has to "feel(s) like the very first time".⠀
It has to happen. What’s quite comical is that the persons in question (the perps) are unlikely to see this. Until they stumble upon a hashtag and try it again.
But even then, chances are slim that they will scroll down at all and see this image is probably a billion to one.
Have a great day!
Nine years ago tonight, I went to bed knowing that the next day I was bringing a new voice into the world.
Tomorrow, my incredible daughter turns nine and I am struggling to fathom this information.
So many times I struggle with the idea of whether or not I did the right thing bringing a child into a world full of turmoil and then she'll look at me or hug me for no reason except to love me and I know I did the right thing. This girl is going to change the world one day.
Nak Anak Kita Sensitif Dengan Perasaan Orang Lain Tak?
Mudah je. Caranya adalah : 👉 Ajar anak kita baca Body Language adik beradiknya
Contohnya, ajar anak kita untuk membaca : 😔 Mimik muka sedih adik beradiknya 😡 Mimik muka marah adik beradiknya 🚶♂Postur tubuh adik beradik yang sedang bersedih
Dan banyak lagi Bahasa Tubuh yang lain. Ni la salah satu kemahiran dalam EQ yang kita nak didik pada anak

One thing that happened to me when I became a mom is that I stopped buying things for myself. I go crazy buying things for Leonidas but when I’m going to buy something for myself I overthink it, I feel bad about it (thinking “with this money I can buy those shoes for my son that he needs” etc) and I usually end up buying nothing for me. BUT this time I thought NO! I haven’t bought any shoes since I was pregnant 2 years ago and now I realllyyyy need it, so I bought 3😂👌🏽 In @skopunkten they always sell 3 for 2 so this 3 pair of sneakers for 675kr was really not bad!🌟🌟🌟 Sometimes you just got to do it😂👌🏽Am I the only mom who thinks like this?😩😅 Which pair do you like the most?😁 #momlife (not an ad!!!)
Here’s a few pics of my daughter and I in Bath 💖💎💜 > Happy single Parents Day 2019 for last Friday 22nd March & to all single parents out there like myself - just trying to their best, who persevere, who juggle a million and one things at the same time. We are special, we are strong, be proud of you always. Every month as Gingrebread Group Coordinator I meet many single mums who inspire me with their unique stories, who make me laugh, and who fill my heart with warmth. They make being a group coordinator worth doing - to know day in and out I am making a difference in their life’s. And what is important is that our experiences are a shared one - there is no judgement, no awkward moment, not even single mothers, just mothers trying to do what’s best for them and their children. Single is a status & motherhood isn’t - it is nurturing, it is loving, it is hardworking, it is precious. So to all you single mums out there - let’s celebrate our woman Power 💖💜💎💖💎 #SingleMoms#singlemumlife#singlemum#singlemumsrock#happysinglemothersday#WomanPower#powerwoman#WomenStickTogether#womanempowerment#Love#parenting#MumLife#MotherAndDaughter#singleparentfamilies#London
12 Life Lessons I Teach My Children:
1. It’s not all about you.
2. Sometimes it is about you. Don’t forget to take care of your own needs.
3. Say “I’m sorry” when you’re wrong and make it right if you can.
4. Leave everyone and everything better than you found them.
5. Ask questions instead of jumping to conclusions.
6. Listen more than you talk.
7. If you can’t respond kindly, don’t respond.
8. Stand up for yourself, but don’t step on anyone.
9. Be a problem-solver, not a problem-joiner.
10. Don’t assume you’re right. Educate yourself and keep an open mind.
11. Don’t assume anyone else is, either. Do your own research.
12. Injustice is everyone’s problem. Don’t ignore it just because it doesn’t affect you.
