Get creative this fathers day with postsnap

June 16, 2016 admin 3

This week I have been recovering from a minor operation and had completely forgotten that this weekend we would be celebrating fathers day. Luckily for me postsnap got in touch and asked if I wanted to test out their card making app. The timing could not of been better. I downloaded the free app from app store straight on to my I phone in minutes and was linked straight to their home page offering me […]

I wish I had a Panasonic breadmaker

May 31, 2016 admin 2

I love bread, I could eat it for breakfast, dinner and tea everyday. In today’s modern world there are so many different and wonderful varieties available from white to brown, sweet, stuffed and flavoured that there is something for everyone and every occasion. I have always wanted to bake my own bread. When I was pregnant I would think about the future and fantasise about the smell of fresh baked bread running through the house as I […]

The husband, 300 miles and Stealth gels

April 19, 2016 admin 2

As some of you may know my crazy ass husband is cycling 300 miles in 3 days in September to raise money for Children in Need with a whole load of other crazy ass individuals who all work for Llyods bank (make of that what you will!). Although my OH can ride a bike without stabalisers this will be the biggest event he has ever attempted and it goes without saying that I have every faith in […]

Our Christmas sparkle was stolen :(

December 16, 2015 admin 0

5 weeks ago my family and I took our annual trip to the Broomheath plantation to pick our Christmas tree. It was a lovely day spent hunting for the perfect tree to fit in our living room to be tagged ready for us to chop down ourselves in December. On Saturday we went with our two very excited boys (5 and 3) to cut down our tree, take it home and decorate it. Despite the […]

Would you ever stay in a youth hostel?

November 24, 2015 admin 1

The youth hostel association got in touch with me and asked if my family and I would like to review one of their youth hostels, any one we could choose. I dismissed the idea immediately, I’m not a snob by any stretch of the imagination but I had no intentions of taking my children to a grubby run down youth hostel full of all sorts of strange individuals sharing one large room.  Out of curiosity […]

Who loves a bit of Hanky Panky?

October 31, 2015 admin 0

During half term I had to take my car for the dreaded MOT whilst I had my two boys, 5 and 3. The mechanic said it would take about an hour so we took a walk into Chester in hunt for a pancake house that had been recommended by friends. It took us a while to find it as it’s off the main road hidden away down a quiet little street behind the hustle and bustle […]

The Rose Tree now make candles and here is what I thought of it

October 21, 2015 admin 0

I absolutely adore The Rose Tree and have reviewed both their face and body oils in the past, both proving a huge success with me. This time I am reviewing one of their candles. If you are an avid reader of my blog you will already know that I am totally addicted to candles. I have them in all the rooms and love to write whilst the aroma fills my office and keeps me calm […]

Secret Sausages – The verdict is in!

October 10, 2015 admin 0

I have two boys aged 5 and 3, both gorgeous, both monkeys. My youngest has a brilliant appetite and will eat almost everything, my eldest is fussy and reluctant to try new foods making meal times a challenge on occasion. Despite his fussy tendencies I still ensure that he eats plenty of fruit and vegetables, even if it is always the same ones, they still count. On more than one occasion I have slipped some […]

all it takes is a bit of Positivitea!

September 27, 2015 admin 0

I love tea. Any sort of tea. Green, Black, Camomile, you name it, I probably have it or have at least tried it so when I came across Positivitea I knew I was going to love them!   Where did Positivitea come from? Well, “Ellie is a writer, yoga teacher and tea devotee. During a period of upheaval in her life she studied the chakras and found them to be incredibly helpful as spiritual guidelines […]
