BABYSTYLE HYBRID STROLLER LAUNCH


If you are not aware by now, most of you are!, i am currently pregnant with baby number 3. It has been a long time coming and me and Scott thought it would never happen,but it has and we are all thrilled!.



LAST MINUTE CHRISTMAS GIFT



Christmas is only a week away now so not long left to finish the Christmas shopping. One present me and Scott get the girls every year is a board game. We enjoy board games after Christmas dinner and it is somewhat a tradition now of ours.

 Orchard Toys kindly sent the girls 'What a performance' : an action packed game of fun for all the family.

The front cover of the box at first glance looked very fun and we couldn't wait to get stuck in.



TOUCAN BOX TO THE RESCUE


When it comes to arts and crafts, we love nothing more than to spend the afternoon
or a rainy day at the table letting our imagination run wild.One
thing i am guilty of is forgetting to stock up the craft box and we have
had numerous occasions where the girls have been mid way through a project
and have needed something that we have ran out of!



ON THE SICK | BEING A WALKER

One thing I love doing as a hobby is taking the girls walking through the country side . We have the grange that is a mile walk away and it is beautiful. It also has a small cafe to stop off for hot chocolate or an ice cream - which the kids love!

Since starting work I have felt the strain of these days and sometimes dread them or make an excuse for a ‘lazy day’ . Being a career in the community is a very rewarding job , it has its difficulties and also challenges every day but I absolutely love it and love the sense of giving something back


WHERES WALLY | REVIEW



For as long as i can remember Wheres Wally has always been a favourite of mine, spending hours looking for him in the books at primary school.As i have grown and had a family of my own, we have all enjoyed sitting round the table at the library finding the little guy.



JUST BEE DRINKS | REVIEW


One thing i hate drinking on its own is water. I think that is why i don't tend to get through the daily amount required each day and seems to end up feeling like a chore to do!.

Since i decided to change my eating lifestyle in May and losing over a stone a half, my most important goals were to food optimise and to keep hydrated.



I MISS THE BEACH


One thing i miss about living in Norfolk is being so close to the beach.Whenever we visit my parents this is something i try to do as much as possible. It seems to be one of them things that you take for granted and really miss once you no longer have it.



CRAZY CAFE | REVIEW



So one thing we all love to do in this household is play board games. We have got the biggest collection of board games i have ever seen, and i must admit, i am pretty impressed.When we was contacted by tactic to review the crazy cafe game, i obviously agreed,another one to add to our collection!.



OUR NEW FRIDGE FREEZER | AO REVIEW


If you are the type of person that loves a bargain when food shopping and bulk buys on the special offers then you will understand my excitement!.



ALL THINGS CRAFTY | SUBSCRIPTION BOX

This month we got the chance to review a crafty box by ChiChi-World. ChiChi World, all things crafty, is a monthly subscription box packed full of different art and craft products.

 It is delivered straight to your door and has a different theme each month.This month's theme was insects and creepy crawlies. 



MINDFUN TEES

When people mention colouring in, you automatically think of a child colouring in or a children's colouring book.More recently the adult colouring book has come on the market alongside therapy through art and colouring in. 



BEAUTY FAVOURITES | ORGANIC SURGE






Having a love for beauty and skincare products it would be silly to say i only have one favourite brand that i use. I have quite a few favourites and ones i use the most, Organic Surge being one of them.

DESIGNAFRIEND PRINCESS CHARLOTTE | REVIEW


My two daughters have had their fair share of dolls throughout the years,so when the opportunity came up to review one of the Chad Valley Designafriends i knew Alessia would be thrilled!.


FA GIRLS FOOTBALL WEEK - #WeCanPlay

We have had an amazing opportunity, to have been invited to Wembley Stadium to raise awareness of FA Girls' Football Week. With Kadiann eagerly wanting to start football,I thought this was such a great experience and the best place to start. 


MONKEY FOREST | REVIEW


We have been very lucky to have had the chance to explore the Monkey Forest in Trentham,Staffordshire and let you all know what we think.



APPY KIDS DRINKS | REVIEW



The girls were delighted to get sent some of the Appy Kids juices last week. We received a variety of flavours and characters, Dora the explorer, George and the teenage mutant ninja turtles.The girls love carton juices as they are very convenient to grab out of the fridge, yes I have been blessed with not one,but two lazy sods!, but carton juices always seem to be packed with nasties.

MUM GUILT - WORKING PARENTS

Mum guilt has crept up on me today so I thought it would be a great issue to write about.I have been back at work for almost 2 years now and at first it was much needed.

Being a stay at home mum and Scott working full time had its plus sides,but being stuck in with just the four walls to look at was becoming a nightmare and depression was slowly approaching and I was losing a piece of myself more and more each day.


GALT ABC BEADS | REVIEW

The girls have been busy this weekend reviewing the Galt ABC beads set. I use to make and sell jewellery so the children are quite the craftsmen when it comes to beads and string!.



SIMPLY WASHING TABLETS | REVIEW


I was contacted by Simply and was asked if we would like to review some of their products,which were the Simpy washing tablets.As a parent with an endless amount of washing I couldn't refuse.

The children and I suffer with Eczema and sensitive skin so I thought we would be great candidates for the testing!.As well as being kinder to sensitive skin sufferers these tablets have been clinically tested and proven to outperform leading brands without the added toxic chemicals that damage your health and the environment.




CARDDIES





 Carddies sent the children a set each to review. Carddies are an award winning British portable colouring set that promotes pretend play,imagination and creativity. They have a variety of sets including the ones we got sent, the school set and the family 1 set.

GLEBE FARM :)

It was Ostara on Sunday, the first day of Spring. As pagans this is one of the holidays from the wheel of the year that we celebrate. Lucky for us it was a beautiful Sunday,dry and the sun was shining,what a great day for the farm.



AMAZING MAGAZINE! AND THE GIRLS AGREE :)

We were contacted by Amazing! magazine asking if they could send the girls some copies of their magazine. I followed there link and had a browse. It is a monthly magazine that is packed with articles,facts,stories,debates,poetry,activities,puzzles and jokes. It actually reminded me of horrible histories straight away,to later find out that alongside writers from the Simpsons and Beano, the ex-editor of Horrible Histories was also apart of the team.




MOTHERS DAY

So it is Mothers Day and as everyone wishes for it to be the most 'perfect' day, breakfast in bed, I made my own, no moaning or fighting, peaceful and no housework, that didn't happen here.
All families are different,and that is OK,we all have our own ways of celebrating things and sometimes they don't go as planned.

My Mothers day started off with Alessia waking me up,snuggling for 15 minutes and then telling me she wanted bacon and eggs for breakfast.I did try and summons Kadiann for a quick cup of tea in bed but even she was having none of it so I decided to make it myself.It started snowing this morning then the sun got brighter as the morning went on which was lovely.


BABY NUMBER 3?



As some of you might know,if you follow us on our you-tube channel, I am coming up to the big 30 in April. As worrying and sad as this feels, it also marks a deadline for me that I set myself many years ago.


HALF TERM FUN :)

So its been half term this past week,which to be honest,it always worries me.I don't drive and Scott is at work most of the day so I have to rely on public transport,which is never reliable.So as usual we have had terrible weather,rain,wind and even the odd snowflake and with me having the flu we have tried to make the most out of a bad situation.So other than the odd days out we have spent most of the holidays snuggled inside with plenty of crafts and netflix to keep us going.

PIZZA WRAPS



If you watch our vlogs you will know by now that Alessia has got extremely fussy with her main meals. Amongst not liking chicken curry or bolognaise,she has gone off pizza completely,which use to be one of her favourite dinners. Having to make the little madam something different when one of them meals were on the cards was becoming a pain and we ended up trying not to have them as much, poor Kadiann,her beloved pizza.
