I’m now a stay at home mammy

I never thought I was cut out to be a stay at home mammy. In fact I didn’t really want to be. Hell, I even wrote a whole blog post about it. That was then but here I am some two years on and I’m exactly what I didn’t want to be. Except I changed my mind.  Continue reading

Aidan with his SpotOn Football

If you haven’t guessed it, the GAA is king in our house. I love it. Daddy Chambers loves it. Aidan loves it and Sarah is getting there.

How my new baby makes me feel! Like I’m on top of the world!

A good while back I asked if three really was the magic number. I was debating whether or not to have a third child. Well I’m glad to announce that the third baby, the fifth member of the family, arrived in to the house a couple of weeks ago. And I don’t know how I ever lived without said baby!  Continue reading

I was renewing my car insurance with Chill Insurance the other day and while I was on hold I got to thinking about family road trips in Ireland. All I see online at the moment is people talking about their summer holidays in the likes of France, Spain and Italy but what about mini staycations?  Continue reading
