Day out at Loggerheads in North Wales

June 29, 2016 admin 0

Over the last 18 months my husband and I have come to realise that the best days out with our boys are those spent in open spaces. We can admire the scenery whilst the boys can be boys, run, jump, climb and be noisy without fear of judgmental looks from others. We have also discovered that living only 20 minutes from North Wales is a huge bonus as they have loads of amazing and beautiful places to […]

Aloe Fleur de Jouvence by Forever Living

June 28, 2016 admin 4

One of the great things about my forever living business is that I get to lend people the products so that they can try before they buy. This is a fantastic idea as why invest in new products if you are not 100% sure you are going to love them. I find that people love this concept and often ask if I have any new products for them to test out, this week one of my […]

In a bid to raise awareness about the benefits of growing your own vegetables and trying to encourage the nation to  get involved, Heinz have produced some beautiful pop up gardens across the country.

My boys, like […]

A mother’s guilt

June 23, 2016 admin 2

I write this having just completed a twelve hour shift, my babies are already tucked up in bed after daddy has fed, bathed, played with them and completed the bedtime routine. I saw them briefly in a busy haze this morning as we all frantically prepared for the day, throwing cereal in a bowl for one and helping the other put on his socks, a quick kiss goodbye and that’s it. I wont see them […]

Here at the strawberry fountain headquarters we love nothing more than, well, strawberries, of course! So what better way to spend our father’s day than to go strawberry picking. We headed over to Claremont Farm on the Wirral where you pick a variety of fruits throughout the year, currently available are strawberries and gooseberries, obviously we opted for the strawberries. With a large tub in hand we headed over to the rows and rows of […]

Do all brothers fight?

June 18, 2016 admin 8

I remember a time when my husband and I had the most adorable little boy, with blonde hair and blue eyes and a smile that could light up a room, he got attention everywhere we went. He was a fast developer and a great little companion, although he never, EVER, slept but we looked at him with adoration in our eyes and thought lets give him a baby brother or sister. Lets have another baby, […]

Free family day out at Rice Lane City Farm in Liverpool

June 17, 2016 admin 4

This half term has been wonderful, not only was I lucky enough to have a full week off with my boys but we were also blessed with the most amazing weather, making it the perfect time to explore new out door places. As most parents will agree, with school holidays comes the added expense of entertaining the children, so free days out are always welcome. I did some research into free days out in Liverpool […]
