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 […]

Earlier this month it was the tiddlers 7th birthday, which begs the question how much longer can I get away with calling him the tiddler? But anyway, it was his birthday and he requested a small tea party with a couple of friends at our house which we were happy to agree with. As I was mid way through planning his little tea party we were contacted by Zuru to see if we would like […]

The Hangrees a toy review

September 16, 2019 admin 0

This week we have been sent  new toy for the boys to review, The Hangrees. Prior to being asked if we wanted to take a look I hadn’t heard of them before but I have a feeling they will become the next big thing this winter. If, like me, you aren’t already familiar with them then The Hangrees are plastic toys that are a paradoy of well known characters, fast food joints, and programs. The […]

Personalised clothing by Sonality

September 4, 2019 admin 0

I am a huge fan of personalised items and often buy personalised gifts for family and friends with my favourites usually being personalised books. However, I have recently been introduced to a company called Sonality where you can order personalised clothing for babies, children and adults.

August 26, 2019 admin 0

Can you believe that September starts next week and with that the kids will return to, or in some case start, school. These summer holidays seem to have flown by yet at the same time when I think of everything we have managed to squeeze into the 6 weeks it actually seems like they started ages ago. I think I’ll actually miss the boys come next week and the house is silent for the first […]

August 23, 2019 admin 0

This summer the boys and I were invited to Sea Life Manchester and the Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester  for the day. We had visited Sea Life Blackpool before but never the one in Manchester and so we were very excited about our visit. For anyone who has never heard of, or visited, one of the Sea Life centres across the UK they are basically large aquariums that give you the opportunity to get up close and […]
