5 things to know about Big School Dubai

Our first term of FS1 in Big School has been accomplished! Woohoooo! It included some tears, anxiety from my part and a heap load of stress, because the big school shopping is is NEVER ENDING. So here are 5 things I’ve learnt so far: 1. Buying School uniform is a pain in the arse! First…

Nursery to Big School

So Dubai isn’t like the UK, where kids can get into any school that is within their catchment and then it’s free education till university and parents can actually pay for their rent/mortgage. In Dubai, all good British schools have a wait list with some kids being in there for THREE YEARS! Bloody bonkers I…

School Lunch Box ideas

Kids school lunch boxes is probably the most stressful part of being a parent. Like what the Hell do you put in it EVERY SINGLE school day, that is nutritional, that they ACTUALLY eat and that doesn’t make you cry thinking about it. Lyndsay from ieatmypeas.com held a back to school lunch box ides workshop…

10 ways that kids are EXACTLY like cats:

1. Always sticking their hand or tongue in YOUR water because everything you consume must be blessed with the touch of saliva and a mouth you have no idea where it’s been. 2. They like to eat your/loose your/put things in your shoes just to make sure to keep you in your toes (literally) 3….

Champion Cleaners, the actual Champions

Champion Cleaners is a cleaning company in Dubai that clean just about everything, including rugs, mattress, clothes, shoes and bags (yes even non-designer ones😂 #primarkforlife). So I sent off two pairs of shoes to get cleaned; purely because the two shoes were on their last legs and I wanted to save them because one was…

“Too Hot to Move” Summer Days Activities.

It’s too hot, sticky, humid and disgusting. The floor is literally lava. Lava with a strong foreign B.O smell and frankly I don’t want to carry 20 water bottles, lug around a small child who WILL refuse to sit in the buggy and chase a toddler stealing watermelon printed goods (true story, I had to…

How to BAWSE being a Nursery Mum..

Sorry guys I have been MIA for ages on my blog and that’s because an absolute shit-storm occurs when one of the midgets gets a whiff that mummy is doing something other than dying a slow death cleaning human feaces of the floor. Anyway I am back as Summer holidays have started here in Dubai…

Masterclass with Chef Tarek

Now I’m not a professional cook and I pat my back after flatlaying fish fingers, chips and beans on a plate, but cooking shows I LOVE. I like to think I am taking mental notes, so I know what to do with the frozen meat in the freezer I bought a while back in attempt…

The Etiquette’s of Spa for Spa Virgins

So I’ve never been to a spa before (an unheard of statement in Dubai I know), until I won a voucher. With the voucher I booked a spa experience at YHI spa for a Swedish massage with a private jacuzzi, sauna, pool and gym access. But to be honest, I only cared about the massage…

Things you Learn during the toddler years

You need to anticipate toddler hulk tantrums faster. And be able to run faster. Much faster. The guy opening Kinder Egg suprises on YouTube is the only other male voice you’ll hear. The toddler no longer sits in the buggy, chair, trolley, carseat, bed or toilet. The bribery levels are off the scale, “mummy will…
