Back To School With Start-Rite Pussycat Bow School Shoes Review

Every single morning we have a battle with P1 about putting her school shoes on. I believe it’s partly the autism side of her that is to blame and we do manage to get her to wear her shoes eventually. Start-rite Shoes gave us the chance to review a pair of their school shoes which had changeable charms. I was really …

Halloween Half Term – A Microbreak With Marriott Hotels In The UK

We have had a pretty insane October Half Term. We kick started our adventures with a chance to discover our #WeekendSelf with Marriott Hotels. We were invited to have a microbreak. I can imagine a microbreak without children being pretty chilled out, but for us at the moment we needed a place to explore that was both fun for adults …

Bratz Insta-Pets Doll Review

I recently got the pleasure of being insulted by an older man for the job that I have. Apparently social media and the internet is ruining the world. But quite frankly I believe it’s enhancing the world and that’s why I do what I do. Kind of. But also, I don’t really think you can hide away from social media …

Learning More About McDonald’s Restaurants

I have many memories of McDonald’s. My Grandad used to take me for a lunch when we went to visit my Great-Grandad. My Mum frequently took me as a treat after my swimming lessons. I used to pop by with school friends. I headed there for my work lunches too sometimes. My Hubby also shares a love for McDonald’s but …

Halloween Chocolate Cupcakes Recipes

I have gone a little Baking crazy recently and I think P2 has cottoned on to this too. She asks me frequently if we can bake, it’s usually at the most inconvenient time but she’s getting really good at baking. I spotted some cute little Halloween cupcake decorations in Poundland the other day and instantly knew that P2 would love …

Our Last Update With DryNites

We have come to an end of our DryNites journey. For the past few months we have had the help of the DryNites team and they have given us so many useful tools to help conquer P2s bed wetting phase. I got to go on a sleep retreat. I learned new techniques. We’ve had the opportunity to put DryNites Pyjama …

Clementoni Princess Magnetic Drawing Board Review

My girls really enjoy getting crafty and drawing. Sometimes I feel incredible guilt when I am just far too busy to entertain the mess that getting creative can bring. Over the years I have come to love Magnetic Drawing Boards and we’ve had many different shapes and sizes of them. Recently P2 was sent her very own Disney Princess Magnetic …

The Cheeky Elf Review

When I was a child Christmas meant a time for Father Christmas to bring presents. On Christmas Eve we would set out the plate for him; a mince pie, some milk and a carrot for Rudolph. We’d then pretend to be asleep for as long as possible before our eyes forced it upon us. I remember waking up before it …

Georgie The Interactive Puppy Review

If you were to ask P2 what pet she’d love to have, her answer will always be “I want a Chihuahua”. Whenever she looked a photos of different dogs it would always be the little chihuahuas that caught her attention and that’s when she learnt the breed and ultimately has fallen in love. We don’t have a garden at the …

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 …

My 24th Birthday At Bewl Water

Since becoming a Mum my birthdays do not feel as significant. Apart from the fact I am getting older, my birthday just feels like a normal day. I wake up with the kids early, I get them breakfast, get them ready for wherever they are going that day. However, this year I invited my Grandad along for my birthday and …

A 2nd Birthday Cake Smash

Last year, just before P3 turned one, I decided to throw her a cake smash round my Grandad’s house. He has such a pretty garden and it was the perfect and most relaxed place to hold something I had never done before. It was a little bit disastrous and cake had to be manipulated by adults for P3 to show …
