The milk&more service means that I can have my milk delivered on a Monday, Wednesday or a Friday. My middle daughter gets really excited and goes and opens the door with daddy to check the milkman has been. It's exciting for her, just like picking her own strawberries from our garden in the summer!
milk&more has over 250 daily essentials available on-line and you can order up to 9pm for delivery the next day. There is also no delivery charge or minimum order so you could order something as small as a pint of milk! I love this!
Setting up the account is easy. You register your card details on the website and you don't have to have a regular delivery date. You can do this as and when! I selected a date for the payment to be debited out of my account each month, and there's more than milk to choose from! Great news for the Collins household who is always running low on bread by the end of the week and when we fancy some bacon butties at the weekend before our big food shop is done.
I will continue to use milk&more for the convenience (and their bottled orange juice!). No question about it.
Disclosure: This is an honest paid review.
Please don't be the mum who looks back in 10 years time and regrets all the little things. Stop telling the kids "Hang on a minute" "Don't make a mess!" and stop worrying about the housework and all the DIY jobs that need to be done around the house. Stop worrying about the building work that is happening behind the house this year. Stop worrying about not having any spare time for you (me), don't worry about your weight, or how tired you are. Don't miss that opportunity to cuddle Matilda at 3am when she is screaming the house down, don't be too busy to stop and cuddle your daughters when they look sad or lost.
The girls are growing up so so fast and you' re spending all your time worrying, being tired and stressed trying to be mum, cleaner, cook, nurse, wife, Emma, blogger, friend, sister, daughter, taxi driver... well there's heaps more on that CV of yours. Before you know it the girls will be grown up, moody teenagers who are stressed about boyfriends, friends, exams... Before you know it you will be old and once you're gone, you're gone. You don't get a second chance at this i'm afraid. Once that hour, day, month and year have passed the damage is done and you won't have the chance to go back and change it. Nevie won't be 5 again, Myla wont be 3 again and Matilda wont be 10 months again.
Don't try and be a hero by coming off the anti-depressants. They give you energy, balance out those crazy hormones and you won't be on them forever. You juggle bloody loads. You put everyone else first. One day you will have the chance to 'potter' and be bored. You will get that chance to be alone with hubby and have a normal conversation and laugh together, you will even find that you can leave the house together on an evening and relax child free. You will one day walk out of that front door with just a handbag to worry about.
For now remember that you are picking up many life skills, you juggle more than one job and you're NOT alone.
Don't throw this life away. You only get one chance at life. LIVE IT.
Love and Hugs

Matilda Eloise has turned 10 months old today. My third baby and the quickest growing time. Nine teeth, one hell of a growth spurt at the moment with very little sleep and a massive appetite, the ability to say cat and "Uh Oh!!", trying to walk and a very demanding attitude just like her biggest sister.
She is pretty darn cute!
Im a mum with three kids, a job and my life is totally crazy but im finding myself again. I miss the beauty element. Im a mum on the run BUT I can still wear lipstick! First up? Avons lipstick in a foxy red for work. Apparently lasts for 8 hours...
