We had an amazing box of goodies to get crafting for Spring from Baker Ross. Some great Mother’s Day crafts, as well as an Easter Train, alongside all kinds of nature themed arts and crafts.
For Mother’s Day this year Wentworth wooden puzzles have created a beautiful Mother’s Day Jigsaw puzzle and they kindly sent me my very own to have a look at.
The With Love Jigsaw is £29 for a 250 piece puzzle. Now 250 pieces may not sound like many but boy is this thing tough. I’ve been working on it for days now, grabbing moments as and when I can and I have only just completed the edges!
For my birthday last year I was given a great book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.
This week has been a bit of a mixed bag. I’m still utterly exhausted but I seem to be getting into a bit of a rhythm and dare I say it, things are weirdly easier with husb’s longer hours. I can just get on with things without interruption, well I have constant toddler interruption but you know what I mean. I’m starting to feel like I can get a half decent routine sorted for us.
Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:
This plus that equals….my Spring wish list
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about a few things I would like to get sorted now that Spring has sprung.
I don’t know what got me thinking about it, but the last days or so I’ve really been thinking about how much I have changed since becoming a mum. Obviously parenthood is life changing, I didn’t expect it not to be. Now three years in there are days I think I’ve got this parenting thing sorted, mostly I don’t, but that’s life.
Organising a hen party is hard work, especially when there are 19 guests, the bride is your sister and your mum will be there. So many standard hen party gifts and tokens are just ridiculously tacky and flashy or adorned with willy’s.
We have been playing with Crazy Claw from Drumond Park recently, so I thought I would give you our verdict. Mine and L’s differ slightly on this one.
I’m going to start by pointing out this game is aimed at ages 5 and up. L is only 3. So I was always completely aware there may be parts of the gameplay he didn’t quite get and that maybe he wouldn’t be able to do it all.

How time flies. This time two weeks ago I was getting ready for my sisters hen party and in another two weeks she will be getting married. It has come round in the blink of an eye.
Thanks to the hard work of a lot of people the hen party was brilliant and as I never do this kind of thing I thought I would tell you all about it.
Not one of my favourite jobs, not at all, but especially this time of year it is essential. Making sure my car is clean and safe. Living in a rural area like I do my car gets muddy quickly, and if you can’t see your number plate you could be getting a ticket. Not great. Simple car care really is essential.
