We Provide Support For Mums

I have been a mum for almost 9 years. My children were born 2007, (2009-2011), 2012, 2013. With four kids, lots of reading and researching and practicing the art of motherhood, finding friends in alien lands, pursuing my hobbies and staying sane… I’ve got lots to tell you here.

I have been newly married in a new country… to newly pregnant with no relatives or friends… I’ve moved to a new city and house hunted at 34weeks pregnant… Delivered through an emergency C-section…  I’ve always juggled two kids under two… I know what it is like to go School shopping for one child while expecting another one … what being seriously ill and pregnant means… how to entertain kids while on bed rest… I am a pro at losing post pregnancy weight!

If it is Potty training trouble… Moving beds… Big kid … discipline that works… Summers without a vacation… You name it! I’ve been there and I am here to tell you how modern, educated women bring up their kids.

I may be no expert but I have experience. I am a researcher by profession and whenever I have a problem, I like to go sleuthing till I find the solution. This blog is where I share all my neat little tricks and hacks to parenting it right.

Jeddah Crafter’s Club

I am crafter… I love to crochet, tat, quill, sew and recycle everything but most of all… I am a shopoholic! I am always looking for craft supplies and the best deal in town. I have been called the Jeddah Yellow Book (no kidding!!)  So… if you are looking for something in Jeddah and don’t know where to find it, go ahead and search for it on the blog here or come on over to my Jeddah Crafters Club on Facebook!

Home is where the Heart is…

I love kids. If I had my way, I’d be playing and laughing with them all day. Please, I hate housework! So… I am always finding ways to work less and do more. We believe in simple minimalistic living. So if you like to live clean, green and natural, come on in and join me!
