Win a pair of Treads school shoes

February 14, 2020 admin 0

You may remember back in August I wrote a post about how we were going to give TREADS school shoes a try this year. Well Connor has now been wearing them for 4 months, they have lasted one full term and they are still going strong as we head in to the second, which I am really impressed with as by now we are normally on our second pair at least.

Things to do in Manchester

February 9, 2020 admin 0

Manchester is one of my favourite cities as there is so much to do whether you are on your own, with friends, on a romantic break, or spending time with children. As it’s only 40 minutes away from us we are often able to just pop over for the day but if you are coming from further a field then there is so much choice in regards to accommodation too that you can easily stay […]

Celebrate Valentines Day with some sweet treats from Swizzels

February 2, 2020 admin 2

Valentines day is just around the corner and for some couples this is the ultimate holiday, for others it goes by un noticed, I would say my husband and I are some where in the middle. We always acknowledge it, buy each other a card and a token gift or two and then usually have a nice meal at home with a movie and a bottle of wine once the kids are in bed. This […]

The Elvie Breast Pump – Is it worth the money?

January 26, 2020 admin 0

In November we had our third (and final) baby and I knew that, like with our previous 2, I wanted to breast feed this baby if at all possible. However, I also knew that this wouldn’t work if I was as prudish, shy, and embarrassed when it came to feeding in public as I had been the last two times. You see due to the big gap between babies 1 and 2 and then baby […]

The Mokee Cot Bed Review

January 14, 2020 admin 0

When we were pregnant with Layla we didn’t find out if she was a boy or a girl as just with our two other children we liked the element of surprise. This did however mean that when we decorated her nursery we had to opt for neutral colours and so we chose grey and orange, or grey and fox print wall paper anyway. We already had the wooden wardrobe and chest of draws from when it […]

The nursery makeover with Valspar paint

January 2, 2020 admin 0

When we were pregnant with our third baby we made the decision to keep the gender a surprise, although secretly I was convinced we were having a girl, which meant when it came to decorating the nursery we needed to opt for neutral colours. Having once been the tiddlers nursery it was already painted baby blue and white, not very neutral and a tad out dated having not been re decorated for 5 years so […]
