Jim Jams Hazelnut Chocolate Spread 83% Less Sugar Review

Hazelnut chocolate spread has become a firm favourite in this family. The girls love to have it in a sandwich or on toast every morning. It is literally the only thing I can get them all to eat. There was a big uproar about the leading brand of hazelnut chocolate spread and it honestly shocked me, yet I didn’t really …

Chocolate Lolly Maker Review

We are heading into the Easter holidays. For us, they are pretty long. P2 always gets an extra week or so as her nursery runs as a private one and not strictly alongside state school holiday times. P1 has two weeks the poor sod. Any way, it’s definitely time to start thinking about activities, days out and things to do …

A Family Trip To Cadbury World 2017

It’s been quite a few years since my first ever visit to Cadbury World. I remember having an amazing time and had only been back once again when P1 was very young. Over the past five years I have tried to convince Hubby to let us go there as a family and finally we went. We arrived about half an …

Christmas Snowman & Santa Fruit Treat

I love baking with the girls. I think it’s a really useful skill for them and I’d like to think I am improving on my kitchen skills. But when I saw these really cute Snowman and Santa fruit figures on Pinterest and generally circulating the internet in the lead up to Christmas, I instantly knew that this would be something P2 …

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 …

Getting Active With PITCH Brioche Pasquier

We have gone about three months without a car recently and I have never been so active in my life. I think I’ve been living in a mix of complete exhaustion but actually feeling quite good about it. Being active has so many benefits and I definitely think I’ve started to feel some of them in that time. We were …

Nutella Cupcakes Recipe

I never used to like Nutella, I was always a proper chocolate spread kind of girl. Specifically a nice Cadbury one if I was to be picky. But Hubby stopped buying it and went for the Nutella and now we buy it in the kilo… Literally thanks to the new family sized jar. I really enjoy baking and so does …

Chocolate & Chia Seeds Overnight Oats Recipe

I don’t own a full length mirror. I’m not tall enough to see into our bathroom one and so I put up with a hand held one for my makeup in a poorly lit hall way. That’s how I dress myself each morning, relying on a quick glimpse in a shop window to double check I actually look half decent …

Raisin & Walnut Chocolate Bark – Leftover Easter Eggs

I have had several boxes of Easter eggs sitting in our kitchen staring at me. Screaming to be eaten. For some reason, they just haven’t which I know sounds completely ludicrous. But it’s go to the point that I am crying to have my work surfaces back so instead of the usual chocolate nests, I decided to try my hand at …

What’s In Our Easter Basket?

Being a parent blogger where you are in a community of inspiring people it’s hard not to get excited when it comes to big events in the year. Over the past three years I have seen a new tradition of hampers or baskets being created around Christmas, Valentine’s, Easter and Halloween and each time I have good intentions to join …

Wicked Uncle Toy Shop Review

I know I love presents. Hubby isn’t going to deny the fact he loves presents too. My children are quite partial to presents too. Heck, I’ll stretch to saying everybody loves presents. But one thing I hate doing is buying them, especially for people outside my household and males too. Wicked Uncle was created for people like me needing new, …

Easter is just around the corner and if your children’s Grandparents (Great-Grandparents) are anything like ours, you’ll already have a huge stash of chocolate building up! We had said we weren’t going to give chocolate to the girls this Easter so I decided to create little chocolate nests to spread the chocolate consumption a bit better. It was also a …

Valentines Day 2015

We’ve had an extremely different weekend. P1 and P2 have been for a sleepover round their Grandparents in Essex and we’ve had a weekend of just P3 which has been surprisingly easy. It hadn’t gone unnoticed that this weekend was also Valentines Day and I wanted to plan something for hubby as a surprise. I’m not overly good at surprises …

October Half Term 2014

We always seem to suck when it comes to organising things to do over the school holidays. I tend to plan in my head but never put those plans into action. This October half term has been completely different to our usual school holidays. It feels like we haven’t stopped! It started on Saturday with P1 going away for the …
