Chloe, Olivia and myself were recently invited to the recently refurbished Lollipops cafe which is part of a converted church situated in central Westbourne.I went to Lollipops several years ago for a birthday party and it has certainly changed a lot from how I remember it before. It is now a light and airy space which feels welcoming as soon as you go through the front door. It’s such a chilled atmosphere in comparison to some of the bigger soft play areas where you can’t hear yourself think!

A couple of weekends ago, we paid a visit to Shire Hall which was kindly arranged by JellyRock PR through Bournemouth Bloggers. Shire Hall is a historic courthouse museum located on Dorchester High Street which is open daily from 10am-4pm. It is a fun and educational day out for both children and adults.
On arrival at the museum, we were greeted by a few of the members of staff and we were given an interactive iPad for Chloe and audio guides for myself and Dave to use on the way round. We were given a choice of six cases that we could listen to while in the courtroom.
“Tidy house, tidy mind”. I really do relate to this quote. I find the state of our home really does impact on my mood and my anxiety. Not only do I find that tidying and cleaning helps with this, I also enjoy it but I don’t always have the time to do a thorough sort out of our belongings. So when I received an email through Bournemouth Bloggers for a collaboration with Romana who is a Marie Kondo certified consultant and the owner of Purer Living, I jumped at the chance.
I’m sure most of you will have heard of Marie Kondo or may have seen her Netflix show Tidying Up With Marie Kondo or may have read her books, she is the creater of the KonMari method. For those of you who don’t know much about the Kon Mari method, it very much focuses on tidying by category rather than by room. This begins with clothes, moves onto books, then papers, followed by miscellaneous items and finally moving onto sentimental items.
