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. 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 …

Rockin’ Baby Patience Reversible Pouch Review

I really didn’t think I’d be such a lover of baby wearing but I am. I talk about it a lot on my blog and I’ve been lucky enough to try many types of carrier. The latest one is very different to the usual ones I’ve had. It’s the Rockin’ Baby Pouch. We have the Patience Reversible Pouch and I …

The New Mothercare Tusk Range supporting Endangered Animals

I want you to think of a world without animals. You can’t? Nope neither can I and neither can Mothercare and that’s why they are donating 4% of the sales of their new Tusk range to the charity, Tusk. I’d never heard of Tusk before. It’s a charity helping to support the conservation of wildlife, sustainable development and education in …

“I was a new mum to a premature baby at just the age of 16”

When I was pregnant with P1 I was expecting to have her in February 2009. She had other plans. Eager to meet her family and be introduced into the very scary world, P1 arrived in December 2008 just in time for Christmas, Christmas Eve! She weighed 4lbs 13oz which was a really good weight considering she was nearly two months …

BBC Children In Need 2013

We’ve spent the whole evening watching every bit of BBC Children In Need. Both my hubby and I shed quite a few tears. People think that kids are so flexible to everything. I could definitely see that in the stories that were told tonight. They are flexible, but they are not indestructible. Things do effect children in ways we could …

“These days apparently the harvest offering is £1”

I experienced my first Harvest Festival as a parent of a reception class child today. P1 has been practising her singing for the past week, a song I used to sing for my harvest festivals. Every single song reminded me of my school days and my harvest festivals back in primary school! I could sing along to the whole festival. …

I’m Going Grey!

I’m feeling at a loose end with both the girls. P1 is being an absolute nightmare with her behaviour and eating. She’s ended up in her bedroom for discipline twice today! We don’t do this often but it’s got completely out of hand and it’s the only way she’ll listen and realise. P2 isn’t sleeping. At night. She ended up …

Bliss Buggy Push!

This is a plea… A plea for everyone to dig deep in their pockets (virtual, online pockets) and donate to a charity that is very close to my heart, Bliss. I don’t normally take part in anything to do with charities. I hate the way they rattle their tins in your face when you walk down the high street or …
