Carylon Bay Beach Visit

DSC_3830

It’s been a long time since I went to the beach. It used to be quite easy to get to our local one back in Essex and there was plenty to do like arcades and even a little theme park. It was a relatively nice place to visit but I never actually did very often. I’ve seen so many beautiful …

DSC_4125

Perhaps it’s not something you’ve thought about before, but did you know that your career choices have probably been – at least in some way – influenced by your parents? Whether you’ve had happy-go-lucky parents who wanted nothing more than for you to feel satisfied, or go-getter parents who measured your success by your income and job title, there are …

The Works Stationary & Craft Haul

DSC_3094

So I don’t normally do posts like these on my blog and I don’t really know why because I really enjoy reading other people’s haul posts and being completely nosey. So when The Works got in contact I just couldn’t refuse. I have recently found myself to have a real love for stationary so naturally it was a perfect fit.  The Works …

A Family Day Out At The Eden Project

DSC_3540

When we first checked the weather forecast for our little trip to Cornwall, it didn’t look great, but actually it’s been pretty beautiful. It wasn’t exactly warm but it was stunningly sunny which makes a lot of difference. So of course you can’t go to Cornwall without visiting the Eden Project or at least that’s what I’ve been told as …

She gets so excited when it comes to lunch boxes so I was naturally very pleased to accept a Classic Yumbox V2 in Framboise Pink colour for me her to review. I mean look at this face… So the Yumbox is all about making lunches fun yet …

ALDI Specialbuys New Baby Range

DSC_3220

Over a year ago now we reviewed some nappies from ALDI and were so incredibly impressed by them. In fact they were the best nappy for absorbency we’ve ever used but unfortunately, at the time our local ALDI was a pretty long way away and it just didn’t work out cost effective to shop there. Especially just for nappies. But since …

Education is vital for the mental and social growth of children and a focus on structured learning from a young age can instil students with good habits that will help them make the most of their time in education.

Twinkl Educational Publishing Review

DSC_2992

My eldest is struggling academically. I never thought she would. When she was at nursery she was flourishing but going to school changed her. Her writing is falling well behind what it should be and so when Twinkl got in touch I was really excited about having some interesting new resources to hand to help my 7 year old bloom again. …

This weekend has been a bit of a wash out. It’s the first weekend that we’ve had a fully fixed and working car since the beginning of March. We had plans to go for the evening swim we’d agreed to do every two weeks but only ever managed to do it once because of the car. Saturday morning we’d agreed …

It’s been a while since we heard that well known tune of PAW Patrol. When we received the brand new PAW Patrol Magazine I rushed to our new Netflix subscription to see if they had some episodes.

LeapFrog Musical Rainbow Tea Party Review

DSC_2410

I frequently feel sorry for our youngest daughter. She has to grow up wearing hand me downs and owning preloved toys. In actual fact she doesn’t really own any of her own toys. I stupidly forget that her development is at a completely different stage to her bigger sisters. One thing she really thrives doing is playing with her sisters …

Siblings 2016 – April

DSC_2869

This month has seen the girls settle down much better with each other. Of course they still have their horrible bitch fights where they literally attack each other (P1 and P2) with poor P3 copying more and more. I think this is going to be our futures as girls can be pretty mean to each other when they fall out. …

Currys HOTPOINT RSG964JW SMART+ Washing Machine Review

DSC_2361

Our washing pile resembles a mountain. It’s always standing tall no matter what day of the week or whether you’ve just put three washes on in one day. I complain about it all the time, promising myself that I’ll keep up with it and make sure I do one load a day but in never works out that way. When …

Feeling The Strain

DSC_2812

We are all judgemental towards others for any number of reasons. Whether your wearing too much or too little makeup, whether your child has snot coming out their nose, why she’s shouting in the middle of a shop at her toddler. Trust me it’s never ending and we are all guilty whether you like it or not. I think one …

I nearly forgot about My Sunday Photo. This weekend has been very laid back and it’s been so nice. P1 and P2 have been in Essex with my Mum for their monthly sleepover and so we’ve been left with just one little lady to look after. I always find it so much easier and calmer with just the one.
