The Climbing Hangar in Liverpool

September 17, 2020 admin 0

#Gifted experience Last night we were invited to The Climbing Hangar at Matchworks in Liverpool. The boys have loved indoor climbing ever since our first experience a few years ago at Be Boulder and then again last year at our local centre Boulder Hut and were really looking forward to getting stuck in, especially as it feels like such a long time since we have ventured anywhere exciting due to lockdown.   The Climbing Hangar is in […]

The Buyagift Afternoon Tea for Two at the Townhouse Chester

August 10, 2020 admin 0

This week it is Afternoon Tea Week and to celebrate Buyagift sent me and my mum to the Townhouse Chester to try out their Afternoon tea for two with bottomless prosecco. I know, I know, it’s a hard job but someone has to do it. The Buyagift voucher costs £59.90 which entitles you and a friend to afternoon tea and an hour and half of bottomless prosecco, making it great value for money. The voucher […]

The benefits of artificial grass

July 30, 2020 admin 0

Summer has officially started and with that normally comes a desire to revamp our gardens,  plant some pretty flowers or start growing our own veg and maybe even take on a full garden renovation.  If this is you and you are currently sat there mentally redesigning your garden then let me ask you this, have you considered artificial grass?   Artificial grass is becoming increasingly popular and it’s not surprising really, here are just a […]

Making Peace with Summer Fever

July 2, 2020 admin 0

Nobody likes to think about catching a fever. However, now that the lockdown measures are rapidly easing, your immune system is likely to go through a lot. First of all, let’s be clear about something. Developing a fever in the first weeks of the British summer is no sure tale that you’ve caught the infamous COVID-19. Nevertheless, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be cautious.   What would you catch a fever, you ask. There is […]

You’re Engaged: Now What?

June 23, 2020 admin 0

Getting engaged is super exciting, and you probably can’t wait to start telling people. Whether you get married next year or next week, you’ve promised to start a new chapter of your life with each other. You’ll have a special day, perhaps with your family and friends there to witness and celebrate your union. But when you’ve just got engaged, what should your next steps be? The wedding itself is likely to be a while […]

how to wean your baby

Little Tummy baby food – A review

June 18, 2020 admin 0

We started weaning Layla at 6 months just as we did with the boys but unlike with the boys this time we have done a combination of pureed foods and baby led weaning. We have chosen to do a mix of the two methods for a couple of reasons 1. I find it easier to know how much Layla has actually consumed when using the purees and 2. I do worry about choking when doing […]

How to create the perfect card for Father’s Day

June 14, 2020 admin 0

Father’s Day is going to be a bit different in a number of ways this year due to the current lockdown rules, no big family meals, days out, or family gatherings.  So making sure we remember to send our dads a card and some presents to show them that we are thinking of them is even more important than usual.  If you have followed my blog for a while you will know that for me personalised […]

What to buy Dad this Father’s Day

June 2, 2020 admin 0

Well isn’t this just  the most bizarre Father’s day we could be having in the UK, a lockdown celebration like no other and one that brings with it lots of questions such as what to buy? And how to celebrate? This year a voucher for a beer tasting evening or tickets to a football match simply wont do, nor can you celebrate with a big family meal at your dads favourite restaurant, unless of course […]

5 Top Tips for living a healthier life

May 22, 2020 admin 0

Life shouldn’t be all about diets and restraint it should be about enjoyment and balance and I truly believe that by making changes to our lifestyles we can all live a healthier life. These changes do not need to be big or dramatic changes they can be small and easy to implement, swapping one thing for another, or introducing something new. As long as you are consistent with the changes they will eventually have a […]

weaning your baby

Everything you need to start weaning your baby

May 8, 2020 admin 2

This week is national weaning week (4th May – 8th May) and it just so happens to fall the week before Layla turns six months old which is when we plan to start our very own weaning journey. Despite having done this twice before with the boys I still feel very nervous, as well as a tad excited, about the whole weaning process and so I’m trying to get myself organised in advance. One of […]
