Parenting is a joy which most people are fortunate enough to experience at some point in their lives. Bringing a child into this world is bettered only by the journey you go through as a parent, as you watch your little one grow.

While it is a blessing, motherhood isn’t without its trials and tribulations. New research by Direct Line Life Insurance found that two thirds of mums still take on the majority of childcare duties and 41% of parents don’t think dads are held to the same standards as mums.

Going on Holiday without the kids

The last time hubby and I had a holiday with just us two, was when our oldest, who is now 18, was 9-months old.  We booked a holiday for just the two of us and didn't think much of it - until the date crept up on us quickly, and I started to doubt whether I could leave my baby - there were lots of tears and I was very close to not going. With my parents reassurance (and with how much they were looking forward to looking after their baby grandson), I finally swallowed my anxiety and went. It was a lovely holiday - although I cried most evenings on the phone to my mum, missing my baby boy, hubby and I did manage to enjoy ourselves.

Reasons why buying a pre-loved car is better

Hubby received his brand new all sparkling, tech'd up, company car a couple of months ago. Which he loves, and it does look fab. However, it's brand new, and although it is a company car, he still treats it with all the love, due and respect, as if he bought it himself - meaning, the dogs are not allowed in his new car, or no eating, etc. 

Then we also have our family car, the trusty Nissan Qashqai +2, which we bought preloved, and have never had any issues with it. It's pretty much perfect for what we need: 7 seats, and runs like a dream.  This is my 4th Nissan, and won't be my last; my next car will be a Nissan, probably the XTrail, and a preloved one too.
