A Very Merry Vegan Christmas

A Very Merry Vegan Christmas

I appear to have spent the best part of Christmas Eve in the kitchen with my 12-year old daughter making a variety of vegan treats to take along to my sister’s tomorrow for Christmas and I have loved having the time to do this. Usually during term-time (weekdays in particular) cooking is a race against time – … Continue reading

Yummy Vegan Mince Pies

Yummy Vegan Mince Pies

  Only 4 days into the school holidays and my 7-year old son is already going stir crazy! Hasn’t helped that I’ve been a bit under the weather so less enthusiastic about wandering around outside in the cold so this afternoon I decided a spot of baking was in order. I found a recipe for … Continue reading

The final push…and school’s out!!

The final push…and school’s out!!

Is it me or did the last three weeks of term D…R…A…G! For some reason, which is quite unlike me, I felt totally desperate for school to end. Even the kids were okay until this week but I’ve been feeling fidgety for the last three weeks. You know that feeling when you’re running on empty … Continue reading

I’m always thinking of ideas of what to write in my head but never quite getting round to actually writing them down! My “green” values are such an integral part … Continue reading

Summer round-up

Summer round-up

Things have gone a little quiet here on Greenermums over the last couple of months and I can tell you (as I’m sure any mums or dads among you will know) this is 100% down to being totally and utterly distracted by running around after the children. July heralds the start of the chaos with countless … Continue reading

10 reasons to get your kids outdoors!

10 reasons to get your kids outdoors!

My daughter said to me the other day “I want to live more like you used to. I want to be less digitalised and not always be on my ipod or on the computer.” Specifially actually she was talking to me about the lost art of letter writing and asked if I could show her … Continue reading

Out of the mouths of babes…

Out of the mouths of babes…

My 9 year old daughter is very special. I know we all think this about our children but she really is. I am clearly not very successful at concealing the moments I find more ‘stressful’ in my life and she is picking up on it. I try really hard to keep my emotions on an even keel and … Continue reading

Do not worry…

Do not worry…

  “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? … Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? … Therefore … Continue reading
