Desperate Housekeeping for busy mums and dads

From one mother to another

New blog! Hope to see you there!

Hi all!
As some of you know, I recently launched a new blog: Expat Mum in Luxembourg.

At the begining, I thought it would make sense to maintain both blogs, with separate themes, but quickly I figured it out that my themes are always around Family Life and Kids.

So, I decided that the new blog will be my new online ‘home’, with new and fresh ideas. As for the Desperate Housekeeping for Busy Mums and Dads, I’ll start to gradually migrate the best contents into the new blog as well.

Hope to ‘see’ you at the ‘Expat Mum in Luxembourg‘ blog and, please, don’t forget to “Follow It”.



Strawberries – Make the most of it!


As you know, strawberries are a very delicate fruit that should be eaten in a very short period of time. As I love to eat strawberries, everytime I see a good deal I buy more at once. To guarantee its quality for up to 4 days, I usually use the following tip:

– Prepare the strawberries by washing them and taking out their leaves;
– Cut in halfs;
– Put them in a bowl;
– Add 2 tbsp of sugar, half a cinamon stick and a little water;
– Mix just a little and place the bowl in the fridge.

This way you preserve the quality of the strawberries and even get a lovely and light syrup.

Note: If you’d like a special touch, simply add one tbsp of Port Wine! ­čśë
