• Slimming world friendly hash brown breakfast tower burger

    I always have to have a good breakfast and it really is the mantra of “the bigger the better” for me. This slimming world friendly hash brown breakfast tower burger has a bit of everything and even some speed veggies! How to make it It’s super easy to make, it’s basically hash browns with all your fave breakfast bits in between. For this reason my “recipe” if it can even be called that is super relaxed. The hash browns are made using Harry Pickards method (for other amazing ideas here is his instagram)  For the hash browns grate a couple of potatoes and squeeze out the excess juice. Slice or…

  • World Cholangiocarcinoma awareness day 2019

    I’ll pretty much guarantee that 95% of you haven’t heard of cholangiocarcinoma or realised that it had its own awareness day. I wish I had never heard of it, beyond all my hopes, wishes and dreams as cholangiocarcinoma took my Dad away from me and my family, March 26th 2018. How I wish the name wouldn’t feel synonymous and almost part of my Dad, but now I hear that word I know what it does and what it did to us. As today is world cholangiocarcinoma awareness day, I felt it important to share the signs and symptoms of this horrible, relentless diseases that took my dad. What is it?…

  • Valentine’s day gifts to suit everyone

    Myself and my husband are pretty much hit and miss with Valentine’s Day, as in we celebrate it one year to the next. Both of us prefer a practical gift that isn’t so much of just being brought for the say so, but also on the flip, a surprise traditional gift is always lovely to recieve! Here is my Valentine’s gift guide, featuring a mix of traditional and practical gifts that will impress your loved one on February 14th. Posh Totty designs at Findmeagift I love jewellery and last year I had a beautiful necklace with both the boys names on. In the same vein, this gorgeous ring necklace from…

  • New year… Pneumonia!

    I am so glad it’s February as I write this because as fresh New Years go this one has been pretty crap, illness has struck us once again and I ended up in hospital for five days with pericarditis (again) and pneumonia. I’ve never had pneumonia before but let me tell you it hit me like a truck and I have never, ever felt so exhausted, not even in those early newborn days. Anyway, I’m home now and apart from it delaying the start of my new job (eek!) things have improved. I love my new job and it’s great to be back being a nurse again after months out…

  • Chicken pox tips for when the pesky pox strikes!

    Over Christmas we were lucky enough to have an extra sprinkling of magic.. chicken pox on Christmas Eve! It was bound to happen really now he is at school and it was rife in Freddie’s class. Here is our story and some of my Chicken pox tips. We found the initial spot on Freddie’s arm just by his arm pit, it was just a small blister really, easy to miss but I just had a feeling that this was the start! This was Christmas Eve night and by Christmas Day there were six over his body. Two days later there were many more spots all over his body – quite startling how fast and…

  • Our new friends – Tinpo

    When you watch kids TV day to day, there is nothing quite like the excitement of a new series to get everyone in the family in a frenzy! New characters, new theme tune, new learning opportunities. You can therefore imagine the buzz in our family when Tinpo arrived – the new TV programme for preschool children from the creators of Nelly and Nora (who we also love here) Keeping the kids engaged and entertained whilst learning is always easier with new fodder and so it was a relief to meet some new characters! The dynamic of TV has changed a little in our house since Christmas as Freddie received his…

  • National handwriting day 2019

    I had forgotten all about the joy of being given a pen at school (year three for me) and being super chuffed with my upgrade from a pencil. As nurse I still do frequent amounts of handwriting rather than being a slave to the keyboard and this is something I love, just as I love the fact that Freddie has really started to take pride in his handwriting now he is in school. Penmanship is really something that can be (and should be!) enjoyed by everyone. As much as I love technology it does tend to steal away the art of putting pen to paper and creating a lovely piece…

  • A different Christmas

    I hope you have all have some wonderful festivities and the best Christmas time! My boys have been wild and had such a fabulous few days, although my house is now inundated with Lego. Teeny, weeny bits of Lego to slice my feet open. Thanks Santa!! Freddie also developed chicken pox on Christmas Eve so spot surveillance was under way too. I wanted to make sure they had the best Christmas possible, I really ploughed myself into them having the perfect Christmas, as I knew I would find this year so difficucult without Dad, as so would they. It was a real shock to see the Christmas gift tags and…

  • Christmas Gifts for children aged 4-5

    Here is some inspiration of gifts for boys (or girls) aged around 4-5. I was really stuck buying for Freddie this year, he already had a backlog of four years worth of presents so the inspiration was definitely lacking. We have had a good clear out in time for Father Christmas’s arrival. Hopefully these gift ideas may give you a bit of a brainwave if ideas to include for the big day. I know Freddie is going to love them! Aluminium Drinks Bottle I know this is a super practical gift but Freddie has a thing with water bottles (he loves them, but also manages to break them frequently) like…

  • Sweetly Vegetarian & Vegan with Swizzles

    With the boys having CMPA I found my self getting sucked into the whole dairy produce situation and ensuring that they have dairy free chocolate. However, there are other niches that I used to overlook so easily – sweets! For some reason they never registered as easily as everything else and I found it difficult to find vegan sweets. This also caused problems at Christmas etc because people often brought them sweets because they automatically thought they were dairy free, when this isn’t the case.  You may not have realised that November was world Vegan month and to celebrate this Swizzles sent us their Choos and a lovely bounty of…
