Aldi Mamia Nappy Review

I change two different bottoms, roughly 8 times a day, seven days a week! This will cut down to one bottom soon, I’m counting down the days trust me but my nappy changing days are far from over so finding the right nappy for my children is critical. We’ve tried a lot. P1 spent her time in branded Pampers or …

“I’d been imprisoned in my own home for 8 days!”

It had been 8 whole days since I last ventured outside the house. Hubby had been for food shopping or to take P2 to the doctors but not me, I’d been imprisoned in my own home for 8 days! At first it was quite nice to just chill out in our pjs. But the day we found out the car …

Happy New Year 2015 – My 5 Goals

I hope you’ve seen my blogiversary competition! With 2014 finally behind us and 2015 now in full swing I’ve been thinking about the things I want to achieve this year. There’s plenty of room for improvement in nearly every corner of my life but I’ve managed to whittle it down to just 5 this year. 5 that are equally realistic …

Win Over £100 Worth of Prizes to Celebrate Our 2nd Blog Birthday

2014 is over! Gone. It seems to have really flown by. I’m not even going to reflect on my goals this year as we’ve had a pretty bad year for our personal life and I’m quite relieved that it’s over. We have had a few wonderful moments and in some senses 2014 was one of our best years. We welcomed …

Cussons Mum & Me Baby Bath To Comfort Snuffles Review

I don’t think that my little family has ever been hit so viscously with the cold virus as we have this Christmas! I actually don’t think I’ve ever felt so bad myself and certainly P2 has been hit hard. We’ve been using the Cussons Mum & Me Baby Bath to comfort Snuffles. At first I wasn’t quite sure how it …

Christmas 2014

I sort of took a bit of an unexpected blogging break over Christmas. It wasn’t the plan and I wanted to blog but thanks to the newest update of the wordpress app, I’m unable to add featured images or any images without the app crashing. I wasn’t about to compromise on quality for the sake of a few posts so …

Christmas Party 2014

Every year my MiL holds a little gathering for all the family. I remember the first party I went to. I had felt super nervous as it was the first time I was going to meet hubby’s family. They all live pretty far apart so having a full family gathering is quite spaced. The first year I was pregnant with …

“She revealed to us that she already knew what she was getting”

On Thursday we made the brave decision of taking a trip to Toys R Us. Exactly a week before Christmas I expected the place to be crammed with people and low on stock. I was wrong. Ok, granted it was busy but we were able to wander around at our leisure with P2 running about like an excited mess and P3 in …

MAM Starter Set & Soother Pod Review

For P1 & P2 we used Tommee Tippee. Whether it was bottles, cups, spoons, soothers or even the steriliser – it was always Tommee Tippee. So when we recently decided to bottle feed P3 there was no question as to what we’d be using… or was there?! P3 point blank refused the Tommee Tippee bottles. Reluctantly, I dusted off the …

“I get such a warm fuzzy feeling when I receive gifts”

There’s certainly a trend in the blogging world right now with Christmas just two weeks away! Every where I look there’s photos of Christmas decorations, food, gift guides, Christmas jumpers and product reviews. Oh the reviews are coming in thick at the moment for me and at times I’ve felt completely overwhelmed and slightly scared I’ll lose some readership by …

“Our house has been filled with germs this weekend”

Our house has been filled with germs this weekend. Hubby has had a cough for a while now but Friday saw P2s temperature rise and her cheeks were bright red. She was due to spend the day with her Grandparents which had to be cancelled, however P1 went for a rescheduled sleepover instead. On Saturday, I woke with a snotty …

To My Princess 2 – 1 Year 10 Months

To my Princess 2, For a while now we’ve been saying “she’s nearly two” or “aged 2-3” or “terrible twos come early”. Writing your age again has hit me just how grown up you really are for it. You’re only a year! Not two. You are cheeky. Each day you do the most hilarious things like faces, actions and words. …

“Christmas is all wrapped up”

Last year P1 was very ungrateful for her birthday and Christmas presents. We’d forked out a lot of money to get her a Schleich farm house and various accessories – anyone who knows what I’m talking about will know that a tiny animal costs around £4. At 5 years old, children just don’t understand value. This year we vowed to …

Frankie & Benny’s Festive Menu Review

Hubby and I wanted to treat my MiL, BiL and her partner to a Christmas meal to thank them for the unconditional love and support they’ve given us this past year. We’d discussed several places we could go and then Frankie & Benny’s asked me to review their Festive Menu. This gave us a fantastic opportunity to treat the family …

Trunki ToddlePak Purple Review

The moment P2 learnt that are feet meant independence and took those first wobbly steps we knew she was going to cause trouble! Within a few days she was fast, very fast, and interested in absolutely everything she shouldn’t be, like cupboards and stairs. Trips out quickly became the most stressful thing in our lives. Hubby and I were unable …
