We have been having a few quiet weekends lately, due to getting a puppy who can’t go out yet, but this weekend he had his second jab and although he can’t go to the park we can take him to peoples houses. So he had an adventure out on Saturday, which can be seen on our new video that has just gone up on our channel (link in bio)
I did a big thing as a parent this weekend.. I let my 17yr old daughter go to Bournemouth with her friends and stay away from home.. I feel very blessed to have such a gorgeous daughter who as yet (touch wood) hasn’t given me too much trouble.
I used to think having babies was tough, then toddlers even more.. But wow, now my kids are teens, things are tough on a whole new level, constantly worrying and questioning every decision I make wondering if it’s the right one.. Am I being too strict, too lenient, Trying to get a balance between the two is certainly hard!
Can you relate? .
Do you or a family member use Instagram? 🤣 of course you do - you’re here! A little word of advice:
I highly recommend that you turn on the two-factor authentication for any instagram account.
It alerts you anytime your account is accessed from an unknown device or browser and will send you a security code to your phone.
Hackers are rife on Instagram and they don’t just target big accounts. This takes just a few seconds to setup and adds an extra layer of security for you.
Simply go to Settings- Scroll down to Privacy and Security and tap on Two-Factor Authentication - Then select On. If you want a visual on how to do this, we have one over on our FB Page. #toptip#parentinghacks
YouTube Kids Update
YouTube, owned by Google, launched the “kid-friendly” YouTube Kids app 3 years ago. It's considered to be the safer, more appropriate version of YouTube, designed to help you easily find child friendly shows like Peppa Pig, Fireman Sam etc and child-friendly users (unboxing toy channels, watching other kids dance etc). Well now, parents can handpick every video and every channel on YouTube Kids that they deem suitable for their child and making it so that their kids can no longer search on their own.
The whitelisting feature was first announced back in April, but it’s just become available globally on Android today and is expect to be rolled out very soon for iOS devices.
What do you do?
Go to Settings in the YouTube Kids app, then navigate to your child's profile and select 'approved content only.' From there, you can choose any video, channel or collection of channels that you want to give your child access to by tapping the '+' button. In this mode, children will not be able to search for content on their own.
Ok, so what if your child is a little older, but still not quite ready for the freedom of YouTube? Well there's a new version rolling out now into the USA (expected to roll out globally soon) specifically aimed at the ages of 8 to 12 years old.
It includes new content, like popular music videos, TED talks and gaming videos that are targeted toward the tween demographic. So, it’s still a locked down version, but it has more scope for content.
Please note the default setting for YouTube kids is the younger version – which makes a nice change.
We cover off on HOW to set up YouTube and YouTube kids in our online library and these new updates will be added here shortly. And no, we don’t charge for updated content – it’s just one flat fee per month.

“What did you do on Saturday night Milly?” - Well I had an M&S Cottage Pie and Peas and then drove my daughter to her school to pick up her friends who are boarders. Everyone was late back from an away match so had to wait a bit and then one of the boarders hadn’t got parental authorisation for me to take her. So waited another 15 minutes whilst she contacted her Mum who was at a party and couldn’t hear her properly, but fortunately said yes. Whether she knew what she was saying yes to is anybody’s guess. Drove them all to the metropolis that is Stourbridge and dropped them off for a take away at a friends house nearly an hour late. Now parked in a lane as no point going home because the boarders have to be back in school by 10.15pm. So it’s me, my Kindle and a Diet Coke in my car on a Saturday night. To be fair my other half did offer to take this one, but I let him off as I love eavesdropping on the teenage conversation going on in the back...😉#saturdaynight#livingthelife#teenagers#mumofteens
(ad) It’s all change again in our house. My son has already gone back to uni life but not without a few tips from Mum about looking after himself. It was clear we needed to add a bit more variety to his student meal plan so we planned some healthy recipes with the help of the @coopukfood. Click the link in our bio to see what we’ve been cooking and for a little sneak peek at our family life :-) @britmums #food4freshers
Realised I’ve never actually introduced myself ! 😆 So how did my IG page start ?? Well I created this montage as a regular local Leeds Roundhay Park lover and walker- thinking Leeds was going to win City of Culture 2023 and I could retire and become some sort of IG blogger and make heaps of money doing product link ups or something - not that I really know how to do that ! Anyway Brexit has kinda put the brakes on that and an abrupt holt to ever being European City of Culture 😩. Back from my hols so with a healthy tan I dare to share my face and fifty something wrinkles 🤦🏽♀️ !! I am so in need of a long walk today but wonderful family life is getting in the way of strolling around our park ! Off to University open day in York . What’s getting in the way for you this weekend ?? .
Shout out to these two amazing guys @teamtfd @jamiefitzpatrickfitness .
They are such awesome leaders and gorgeous people inside and out. Everyday I feel blessed to work with them and learn more about this coaching business
Some might say working on a Friday night is sad, but when you love what you do and you get to spend your time with people that inspire you and help you grow on a daily basis it’s well worth it .
Cannot wait to party with them in Las Vegas in a couple weeks (yes all strictly business of course) .
Just wondering, What would you prefer to do?
Party hard 🎉 or love what you do so much you just wanted to Work and build your own empire? .
Yep, thought so, You Know where I am 😉
The Side Plank is really a full body pose. You work pretty much every part of your body.
The 3 main areas are:
* Core Strength
This pose works your core to a huge extent. You have to really use your belly muscles to stay upright, so you'll definitely be feeling the core work the day after.
So if you want a strong core and abs of steel, start with Side Plank.
* Improves Balance
I think many would agree that Side Plank is without a doubt a not-so-easy balancing pose. However, the fact that it challenges you, and builds strength in your arms and wrists, makes it a great prep pose for other arm balances down the road.
* Strengthens Legs
Side Plank is really a full-body pose. You work pretty much every part, and the legs are no exception.
Engage the legs, especially the supporting one, to help keep you up. You want the core working, but you don't want it doing everything all on its own. Just like with the arms, don't lock the supporting knee, as that will definitely do more harm than good.
Keep everything engaged, and try to feel a bit of lift in the thighs, and get excited about the amazing-looking legs you're going to have!
For working parents with school-age children, September can be a particularly reflective month after a long Summer of precious family time.
Are there jobs out there that fit into busy family life and still offer good career and financial prospects?
Well, you’ll be pleased to know that the answer is yes!
If you'd like to know what that job is, PM me or comment👇 #MoreInfo
Happiness is a choice for those who don’t naturally feel it. This has been especially true for me over the last few days, it’s been pretty tough.
So it was time for me to practice what I preach, I had to change my mindset.
These are my TOP 3 TIPS
1. Put on some “happy” music and dance - it sounds nutty but pull the curtains if you’re a little self conscious.
2. Listen to 5 minutes of Personal Development - Google “being happy” speeches or “start your day feeling happy” there are tons on you tube.
3. Go do a workout / Go for a run / Be active - realise those endorphins.
At the end of the day, I had a decision, I could either choose to be unhappy or I can switch MY mindset and be HAPPY 😃
I’ve chosen the latter

My wolf cubs. They have grown SO much in the 2 years since this photo was taken, one is now an adult (in the legal sense anyway 🙄).
Cherish the baby years, before you know it they're quick witted teens who know WAY more about technology than you do.
Far out, I freaking love them ❤.
Kids online....they’re not going to ask you to put some rules in place, because they’re kids 🤷♀️. But they don’t run the show. And even tho all their friends are playing all the time, like whenever they want, and they’re totally missing out and you, you just really don’t understand mum 🙄 that doesn’t mean that you have to let your child be online without boundaries.
So what are some suggested boundaries:
◾️You only connect or play with people you know in real life - safety is paramount ◾️Games get played in the open. Nothing good comes from screens in bedrooms.
◾️App/Game settings need to be in place, and are not to be touched. ◾️No in-app purchases without permission.
◾️If you’re too young for it you can’t have it. 8yr olds don’t need to be on Instagram.
◾️Screen time is a privilege not a right. Repeat it often if need be.
Experts can’t seem to agree on whether screen time is good or bad for kids so I think moderation is therefore the way forward....and only you know what moderation means for your kids #yougotthis
What a day... I waited till 5 to pour the wine 😉. Trades have had a bad day and are still here and we have no water. Awesome. The food isn’t a prop, I’m making parsnip, pear, blue cheese bake thing and chicken - there will be chicken to fill them up and probably potato 🤷♀️ #overit#dinnereverynight#redredwine
I’ve had every excuse the last couple of days not to workout with jet lag & being up all night Sunday flying home from New York!
No way would I have made it to a gym... but these workouts are only 30-40 minutes each, only 4 days a week & I can do them at home!
This 8 week programme is so flexible & combines weights with high intensity interval training to get you maximum results in minimum time!
It’s so easy to fit around a busy life & I’m amazed at my results physically but also I’m lifting almost double the weight I started with!
I’m in my last week & decided to do another round starting October 1st so if you’d like to give it a try you can join me!
Drop a 👍 in the comments & I’ll send you info! 😀
