My Christmas Wish List 2015

I have been putting off my Christmas list this year because I have already told anyone who has asked the things I’d really like, a duvet set and clothes mainly, so there didn’t seem a need to write a post. But I’ve been reading other wish lists and gift guides and have seen a few things that I’d love to …

Each year I put together a little wish list of things I’d love to have, of course some of the things on my list are completely unrealistic but it’s worth …

A Thank You Teacher Gift & Goodbye To Year 1

I’ve never been one buys teachers gifts. I didn’t even get the nursery that P1 went to for three years a gift to say thank you. That’s how awful I am. I always mean to but then forget. This year, I opted out of the class collection as we wanted to get something for P1s teacher ourselves. I felt a …

Father’s Day Competition with MAM UK

I don’t normally buy gifts for Father’s Day. I am someone who likes to believe that we appreciate our Father’s every day. I don’t think I do show Hubby how much I appreciate everything he does for our girls. Making sure that he can work from home, taking P1 to school, being taxi driver frequently, cooking, doing the clothes washing, …

Nonabox January 2015 Review

I’m pretty excited that the Nonabox have allowed me to review again this year. There’s nothing that beats the element of surprise each month and I have to be honest that my hubby has started to rush to the package to see what’s inside. January’s Nonabox has been slightly disappointing again if I’m completely honest. It’s not that the products …

Nonabox December Review

Decembers Nonabox came in a beautiful Nona-Styled Christmassy box. I’m actually finding great use for the boxes so this one is a cute little edition to our collection. Nonabox is a subscription box that costs just under £25 a month. I’ve listed the products included in this month with their value and it’s clear that it does exceed the £25. …

“She revealed to us that she already knew what she was getting”

On Thursday we made the brave decision of taking a trip to Toys R Us. Exactly a week before Christmas I expected the place to be crammed with people and low on stock. I was wrong. Ok, granted it was busy but we were able to wander around at our leisure with P2 running about like an excited mess and P3 in …

Baker Days Letter Box Cake Review

We’ve been enjoying a treat from Baker Days. It arrived in the post last week and we actually used it as a little gift for P1 after doing so well in her nativity.

Our Play Date with Dr Miriam Stoppard & Galt Toys

I’m familiar with Dr Miriam Stoppard’s parenting books so we jumped at accepting the invitation to attend an interactive play class with herself and Galt Toys at The Kids Stuff Toys in Ashford.

“Christmas is all wrapped up”

Last year P1 was very ungrateful for her birthday and Christmas presents. We’d forked out a lot of money to get her a Schleich farm house and various accessories – anyone who knows what I’m talking about will know that a tiny animal costs around £4. At 5 years old, children just don’t understand value. This year we vowed to …

So we’ve just received our last Nonabox of the three we’ve been reviewing. They’ve certainly got better with time! November’s Nonabox was packed with some amazing products.
