My Sunday Photo 2016 – #18/52

We haven’t done a massive food shop in such a long time. We seem to have got into the habit of just going to our local supermarket for meals for that day or the next few days. Which was working fine but with our recent holiday the food cupboards had got quite bare. The kids were demanding food constantly and …

A #MomsDayOffContest With Crocs

I spend every second of my day doing something child related. I also nearly always have our youngest attached to my leg, hip or holding my hand because she’s a definite Mummy’s girl at the moment. To find time for myself I used to go to a fitness class but motivation for that has disappeared and so it’s become a …

Carlyon Bay Beach Visit

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 …

The Works Stationary & Craft Haul

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

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.

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 …

Twinkl Educational Publishing Review

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. …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #16/52

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 …
