Childs Farm Bubble Bath and Hair Detangler Spray Review

I have to admit that bath times are certainly not my favourite time of the week, and when I say week I mean it. I couldn’t hack being a mum that baths daily. There just aren’t enough hands on my body and hours in the day. However, I’m pleased to announce that P2 has warmed up to water and is …

No More Mess at Mealtimes – Giddy Bowl Pink Review

Children are notoriously messy eaters. Even right from the milky first sips of mummy or formula milk there will also be a tracing around their lips. When you move on to foods things end up on a whole new level of distruction. To clothes, to floors and of course to faces. Stains appear from nowhere and feeding times at the …

I want to be a woman not just a mum!

Last year my hubby bought me a subscription to the Cosmopolitan magazine. I was given a choice as to what I wanted but I chose this one because I wanted something separate from the topic of parenting. I’ve never been into fashion, makeup or girly things. I’ve always worn whatever the heck was in my wardrobe which has either been …

Brilliant Banana Bread Recipe

Our meal plan that I created is now in full swing. I’ve made Fruity Oat Bars and lasagne (recipe will be available soon). I’m actually really enjoying baking and cooking, although the washing up at the end of cooking fresh is not so delightful. On Friday morning, Red Nose Day, we were all up even earlier than normal so I …

Siblings March 2015

In true fashion, I left taking our sibling photos until the last minute, today to be precise, and typically things didn’t go to plan. I wanted my sibling photos to not only represent them as sisters but to be adventurous and ones to keep in the family album. My plan was to take them outside as the weather has been …

Being A Mum

Being a mum means carrying her in my womb. It means watching her take her first breath. Being a mum means changing her nappy for the first time and the 1000th time. It means dressing her for the first time and the 1000th time. Being a mum means watching her open her eyes to the world. It means holding her …

5 Tips for Surviving Messy Play with Kids

I get in such a flap and end up ruining art activities for the girls. I mop up as soon as they drip the teensiest amount of paint/glue/glitter. So to avoid arguments getting the art box isn’t my go-to-rainy-day activity. I try to fill the day with other activities but when we went to the playgroup the other day, it suddenly …

Delicious Fruity Oat Snack Bar Recipe

Last night P2 helped me to cook our first lot of freshly made snacks. As I watched all the sugar, golden syrup and butter melt I did feel slightly nervous and wondered how this was healthy. I did a little research and apparently flapjacks (and obviously fruity oat bars) are packed full of slow releasing energy which is perfect for …

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 look healthier and more awake than I did a year ago”

Somebody told me today that I look healthier and more awake than I did a year ago after posting this photo on my Instagram this morning. Little did that person know that I’m hiding a badger stripe at my roots, bags under my eyes and a pretty fed up mood. It was a comment that certainly picked me up though. …

To My Princess 2 – 2 Years 1 Month

To my Princess 2, We had your two year check the other day. I didn’t have any real concerns about your development. I think you’re doing fantastically. We discussed all the things you do and don’t do. We were told off for being lazy with your dummy and milk situation. The health visitor is completely right and gave us an …

Tara Binns Eagle-Eyed Pilot Book Review

If you are a regular reader you will know that I’m partial to reading proper real books. I’m yet to buy a kindle or use an app on my phone to read. The girls love to read, whether it’s by being read to or even P1 reading herself and of course flicking through the pictures. They love it. We were …
