One Little Man’s Rubbish…

There’s a regular event that is always guaranteed to get my Little Man excited. It’s a highlight of his week. What is it, you’re wondering? A toddler class, a trip out, a fun activity? Erm, nope. It’s bin day! He loves helping us empty the bins ready for collection and …

Win a Smartphone Photography Kit

To celebrate the recent launch of the Honor 6+ smartphone and in particular it’s photographic capabilities, I’ve teamed up with Three Mobile to run a competition to win a fun photography kit. I wrote a couple of months ago about switching over from iOS to Android, and I have to say I was …

My Doodles Watch Review & Give-Away

With Boo now at school and learning to tell the time, we were on the lookout for a watch for her, so it was great ‘timing’ when the team at My Doodles got in touch to show their range to us. Available in four different designs, the Owl, the Alien, …

In The Night Garden Party Time!

At the weekend, we went along to a fabulous and fun party at Alton Towers. It was to celebrate the first year anniversary of the In The Night Garden ride at CBeebiesland there, which was then made even more special with a Guinness World Record. We were actually there at Cbeebiesland …

Let’s Go Shopping Peppa!

First up, I will declare that we are a Peppa Pig loving household. Yes, there it is, and I don’t just mean the kids, I like it, too. I find the show and books to be sweet, despite having watched and read so many of them so many times! So …

Deadly Fun at the National Forest Adventure Farm

We love our days out at the National Forest Adventure Farm, and today’s trip there was no exception. Today Little Man and Boo were eager to get there, so along with Nanny, we set off so that we were there when it opened, ready to get exploring… There are a …

Proud to be Working with HUGGIES Pull-Ups

I am really pleased to share that this year I’m going to be working with a great brand, HUGGIES Pull-Ups, which means that I’m going to be talking a fair bit about potties and wee here. Fair warning! Little Man will be three in September, so my thoughts are turning …

Pen Pals for Children

My daughter is now 5 years old. She’s in Reception at school and is thoroughly enjoying learning how to read and write. The messages that we get home are about encouraging writing in any shape or form, so that our kids are writing for a purpose, rather than just because they …

What ‘Pro-Blogging’ Means To Me

I am a ‘pro-blogger’. Yes, there, I said it. It feels a bit odd to declare it, truth be told, but after I went along to a brilliant session at Tots100 Blog Camp last month, ran by Penny and Becky, it’s been made concrete and clear in my mind and …

I Am A Golden Eggsplorer!

Today I’m delighted to be sharing the news that I am now a Golden Eggsplorer! Well, the children are, to be more precise, which means we’re now proud ambassadors for Reading Eggs. I’m really pleased to be working with them and over the year I’ll bring you the latest news …

My Garden, My Extra Room

Now that the summer months are looming, I am excited to spend time in my extra ‘room’, my garden. Since I’ve got into my gardening, I’ve started to view my garden this way. Before, it was somewhere to sit in the sun, for the kids to play out, for the …

Siblings May 2015

I love this point in the month, when I stop and reflect upon the relationship that my two children have with one another. The days fly by so quickly, it’s nice to stop and take stock. This month has been an odd one for my two. Boo was quite ill …
