Board games were a huge part of my childhood. The hours spent trying to thrash my brother at hungry hippos and ‘Feed the clowns’ are some of my most vivid memories of playing at home. Learning to cheat at monopoly, never quite understanding the game of life, and the squeals of laughter as we tried and failed to beat each other at Mouse trap. more “Tomy Games Review & #ScrewballScramble #GIVEAWAY”
As parents, Valentines day more often looks like an M&S Dine for 2 meal, perhaps sitting at a table instead of on laps in front of Netflix, however, I like many of us try my best to pick up a little card and make a bit of effort (not be in PJs when he walks in the door, and I’m talking fluffy primarni, not silky lingerie). more “Valentines Day Welly Boot Print & Card #Giveaway with Packapunch Designs”
In our home we have one vegetarian, and one fussy eater. Finding foods and snacks everyone enjoys can be a minefield, except, when it comes to one food group; on that we stand united, and that is the contents of the biscuit barrel. more “Jammie Dodgers Oaty bites; Snack Review and #Giveaway”
Like many Mums, I have to confess, the bulk of the kids stocking fillers are made up with bits and pieces they actually need, as opposed to high ticket items – it’s just enough to get their juices flowing and extend the whole ‘HE’S BEEN’ hysteria for as long as possible (long enough to make a brew and turn on the tree lights). more “Move over Satsumas in stockings, time for Strawberry shampoo in your hessian sack; A Vosene kids giveaway”
Given that we have just returned from four days in Disneyland Paris, you’d think we’d be a bit Disneyed out. But, the fact is, when you have two young girls (and never actually grew up yourself), I’m not sure there is such a thing as too much Disney. more “#GIVEAWAY Disney on Ice presents Passport to Adventure this Christmas”
As a Mum who is never, and I mean NEVER, late, a watch has become something I feel lost without; an essential piece of my Mum kit. Two christmases ago I was gifted the ultimate in cool watches – an iWatch, but although it has it’s perks, a watch that buzzes, rings and runs out of battery every 12 hours has not always been practical. I’ve had my eye out for something a little more classic in a wrist watch for a while now, and something that speaks to my individual personality and taste. more “Mum On Time, naturally – with Jord Wood Watches + BlackFriday Discount Giveaway”
We are on the brink of a new dawn in our household, not one of the breaking dawn type; no we have had our fair share of those. We are almost a nappy free zone, day and night. more “The changes and constants of our bedtime routine; A Bepanthen #Giveaway £50 John Lewis Voucher”
I can remember vividly the first time my daughter sat through a Disney movie, and absorbed every moment. It was The Jungle book when she was just younger than two. I’m not sure who loved that landmark moment more, her or me. more “Disney Interactive Games review & competition #WIN a Disney Infinity starter pack”
Kids parties. Love them or loathe them they are part of the deal of parenting.
Your weekends will slowly be filled by them. Your cupboards will be filled with a never ending supply of sweets – more than your child could eat in a year. You’ll have three inches of party bag toys at the bottom of your toy boxes…don’t even think about throwing them away because your children can’t get enough of them.
