• Keeping connected

    In this day and age we really take everything for granted, I know I am one of the worst for this. Little things that really send me into a spin are when the water has to be turned off at the mains, the car is in for a repair or shock horror the broadband being down. I feel so entitled saying that but they really change our lives these days because convenience is everything isn’t it. Working from home, driving to the shops, on demand TV. You don’t appreciate how easily everything is to hand until it’s not! I know my whole family rely on broadband so heavily when we…

  • Preparing for Beekeeping

    A few weeks ago I posted how freddie was going to be helping my sister when she gets her bees. We the wheels are properly in motion now and over Easter I helped her to transfer to get them into their hive. She has been supplied a colony by another bee keeper and so it’s the transition period of getting them from one hive to another and then back to my sisters. This time of year, alone with this weather is perfect for the bees to swarm and so you may have seen some swarms about and local bee keepers collecting them. These bees then get transferred into a hive…

  • Beasties and battles with Eldrador

    In this house we love critters and beasties, anything that pushes the imagination to the limit. Recently, Freddie has been having some awesome battles with his new friends from Eldrador. These tough guys are based on the elements fire, water, ice and stone and are made by the traditional and well loved Schleich. They are all ready to battle it out in a huge mix of the elements! I remeber the Schleich range from when I was small and cooing at all the animals on the display rack when we went to our nearby stockist. It was the detail that I loved – the realism and that’s very much what…

  • #Ad Tried and tested through the years with Johnson’s baby bedtime

    The days are long but the years are short. The years can seem so short in fact, that the bedtime routine we used with Freddie soon happened all over again with Dexter, in a blink of an eye. We used the same routine because it worked and it’s something we both enjoyed. I like using a product that is hypoallergenic, especially as both boys tend to have unpredictable skin, the Johnsons Bedtime collection is also free from dyes, parabens and sulphates, so no other nasties in there. Another thing I love is a pump dispenser just to make things slightly less messy! Kiddies bath time itself isn’t usually relaxing –…

  • (#AD) staying style fresh with Simply Be

    I’m not one of these people that likes to make bold choices with my clothing, just purchasing on a whim – I don’t tend to leave my safety zone. This doesn’t meant I always feel safe in what I’m wearing – I would like to be a bit more out there -confusing hey! I have started making a change towards this, I’ve had some new glasses and they are I suppose what I’d call wild to what I normally wear but I love them, I absolutely adore them and I get compliments on how they suit me so much! When I was contacted by Simply Be to try some of…

  • Home town in the spring

    I tend to forget I live in a gorgeous area for my home town. It’s so easy to take it for granted. I live in a sleepy town in Shropshire and it really is glorious as well as being full of historical nuggets and little quirks such as a castle and a cliff railway! What I love most is the colour that explodes with spring. I adore magnolia and they are scattered all over the town, even along side the river. They accentuate everything and the school run seems a lot brighter seeing the giant, full flowers of the magnificent magnolia in peoples gardens, then the snowy leaves gently blowing…

  • Lamb, garlic and ginger noodles #ad #meatmatters

    This post is an entry for the #MeatMatters Challenge, sponsored by Simply Beef and Lamb. Learn more about the benefits of cooking and eating beef and lamb along with recipe ideas and inspiration here! For me, a meal isn’t a meal if there isn’t any meat. I am carnivorous through and through and my most favourite part of a Sunday roast is choosing what meat we have. We are very much a family that could love of the humble roast, a “cooked dinner” in our household is a gravy dinner with meat, veg and potatoes. All of us would eat one daily but I do keep things mixed up with varying…

  • Protection even for Nappy Ninjas #Bepanthenprotects #ad

    #Ad. There is nothing more miserable and sad than a baby with sore, red raw nappy rash. Sadly both of my boys had Cows milk protein allergy and this was the culprit for some violent nappy explosions and the worst nappy rash – bleeding blisters giving way to red raw skin, this used to heighten at teething time when the acidic poo would just strip the skin and burn. The first 12 months we had lots of nappy rash and this is when it’s most common too. From two weeks old Dexter’s milk allergy was on full pelt and he was also on strong anti reflux medication, a side effect…

  • Beekeeping – our new hobby

    So my sister is currently making hives and hasn’t brought the family beekeeping suits for when we help out. Freddie loves his as he thinks he looks like a storm trooper! I love how interested he is in the bees as we all know how important they are to our planet and keeping us alive with the pollen action that they do. Not just the making of sweet sweet honey! (Even if it is so delicious!) I can wait for freddie to collect the first batch of honey and I want him to be respectful and not fearful of the bees, lots of people are scared of them because they…

  • A spring update with Vertbaudet

    Once spring shows itself I have the urge to update everything or add a new feature somewhere in our home. A small change that just brings a fresh feel. Last year we did this with redecorating to bring some brightness in our home. This year we have been asked to review some gifted pieces of our choice from vertbaudets new range. I chose a giant floor pillow, outdoor rug and some denim jackets for the boys. Dexter’s room has been finished for quite a while but it always had something missing, so I knew that when I saw this giant floor cushion it was exactly what the room needed. The…
