Birthday Shopping With My Grandad & Mum

For Christmas last year my Grandad promised me a shopping trip. It was his way of giving me a present. I ended up going child free and meeting my Grandad and Auntie at the shopping centre. We did lots of shopping and then had lunch on my Grandad’s wallet which obviously is always fantastic. I never know what to ask …

ALDI Specialbuys New Baby Range

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 …

“It sounds silly because shopping is such an ordinary thing”

Growing up I always spent time with my Grandparents. Just them and me. My Nan and my Grandad. We went to Scotland for holidays to visit my Grandad’s sister, we went to Somerset to visit Grandad’s friend on a farm he owned. I spent pretty much every afternoon after school with them. But now I rarely get quality time with …

Mamas & Papas, Joules & Little Green Radicals – A Kids Clothing Haul

I must confess that I don’t really buy P2 or P3 any new clothing. The clothing they wear each day are either second hand, gifted by family or friends and hand me downs from P1. This month has been an exciting one for P2 and P3s wardrobes. We’ve been lucky to receive some gift cards and clothes to review that …

My Birthday Wishlist

The other day I actually had to work out how old I’m going to be this year. I seriously couldn’t remember which is quite embarrassing. I’m going to be 23. 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 …

5 Tips for Making the Most of Your Money

I have never been good with money. In fact I’ve been quite disastrous. I was in debt when I met my Hubby. I had car finance, missed phone bills and a credit card. Over the past three years of being with Hubby I’ve learnt a lot about money. Just by watching him I’ve learnt so much, listening to his many …

Delicious Fruity Oat Snack Bar Recipe

Last night P2 helped me to cook our first lot of freshly made snacks. As I watched all the sugar, golden syrup and butter melt I did feel slightly nervous and wondered how this was healthy. I did a little research and apparently flapjacks (and obviously fruity oat bars) are packed full of slow releasing energy which is perfect for …

Shoes for a Hyper Mobile Child with Pisamonas

Nothing in the world can prepare you for parenthood. No manual, no blog or person can ever truly describe what it is like to be a parent. They do give you a slight idea and a slight guidance. When P1 arrived into this world I didn’t expect her to be so ill. I certainly didn’t expect her to arrive seven …

How To Cook Easy Fajitas with Bernard Matthews Turkey Breast Chunks

Our most recent challenge was to create a quick and simple family dish using Roast Breast Turkey Chunks and with everyone pretty poorly here it was fantastic to be able to rustle something up pretty quickly. Armed …

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. I decided to take the train with P2 and P3 to give hubby a break and he kindly offered to drop us to the station before dropping …

Damart Cable Sweater & Boots Review

The cold and wet weather has truly arrived. It’s goodbye with thin fabrics and flipflops, and a warm hello to knitwear and boots. Damart sent me their Coussin D’Air Double Width Boots and a Cable Sweater to review. Since my Nan passed away I’ve been wearing a cardigan of hers, which happens to also be from Damart. The French company was established in 1953. …
