• 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…

  • Aquaphor- keeping skin hydrated this winter

    As much as I love the winter, crisp mornings with heavy fog with a dark start and dark end to the day, it does have an impact on my skin. As well as being a community nurse in a rural area, I also suffer from keratosis pilaris on my upper arms. Helping in the elements As a nurse, one thing I do more than anything else is wash my hands! As much as it’s a necessary pet of my job – ot does have a telling effect on my hands. They become dry, chapped and so irritated.    Once they split my hands are as much as an infection risk…

  • Fun to the rescue! Herodrive toy review

    Whenever my boys play make believe, Freddie always has to make sure that there is good versus bad and therefore he loves super heroes because they always show the battle. There is nothing better than being the hero of the day and so these Herodrive DC Super Friends that we’ve been sent to review have been perfect for the boys and their imagination The collection Herodrive DC Super Friends vehicles are perfect for little hands and they come in a range of sizes so Dexter has been able to play with his brother and it’s been such a fun experience for them both to have the same toys and have…

  • 10 SPD PGP pregnancy tips to get you through

    If you are reading this post then you are probably desperate for some answers or SPD PGP pregnancy tips. I had SPD (symphysis pubis dysfunction) or PGP (pelvic girdle pain) when I was pregnant with both of my boys, I won’t sugar coat it for you, I had it severely and was in a wheelchair by the time I had Dexter as not even crutches could help me. SPD journey During my SPD journey there were small nuggets of relief that I found helped for a while to get me into the next “stage” as it were, you see you take everyday at a time, thinking of being in pain…

  • The the festivities Be-Gin!

    You can’t escape that Gin has been everywhere once again this year  & we have been lucky enough be able to review the new edition of That Boutique-y Gin Companys advent calendar again this year. We enjoyed it so much last year as it was a real festive treat to have – this year the packaging is different – on trend navy blue and there are different flavours inside. I always thought I was a plain gin fan but I really enjoy the flavoured gins especially the spit roast pineapple which I’m happy to say is included in this years. If you’re looking for different advent calendar to have this…

  • Giftsfor littles 1-2 years

    I have found it super hard to gather inspiration for Dexter’s gifts this year, mostly because he loves to play with Freddie’s current toys, rather than his own toys and I kind of feel like i’m regressing with the ability to buy him something age appropriate that he will like. I have worked with some wonderful brands who have enlightened me with some fantastic ideas to get the creative juices flowing for Dex’s gifts and some presents just for him that he will love and get use out of. My First photos book This is the most perfect gift, not only for Dexter but for my whole family. This most…

  • Hamper goodies Christmas gift guide

    There is nothing that screams Christmas like a jam packed hamper full of tasty treats and sublime snacks. Whether home made or not they always go down well and it’s a lovely way to really spoil someone whilst providing a functional gift.  I love to find new items to add to any hampers I assemble, just to freshen it up each year and maybe even find a new favourite item for the year ahead. Here are a few items I’ll be adding to my hampers this year. Edinburgh Preserves The Cheese Wedge You simply can’t have a hamper without the inclusion of chutney. This wonderful set from buys gift looks…

  • Festive tipple gift guide

    We all indulge over the festive season and for me Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a bit of fizz and warming tipples to really make it a Merry Christmas.  Not only that but I also give alcohol to those people I find hard to buy for – it always goes down well so why not! Here is a selection of some jolly drinks to keep the mood merry. TGI Fridays ready mix cocktails  I don’t know about you but when ever I buy premade cocktails they are always a let down, having a sort of chemical taste? so I tend to mix my own, which can be a faff. These…
