Feeling Calm #8

For my birthday I was given a great new 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 and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.

This week has been fairly boring, thankfully! There have been some lovely moments, some toddler tantrum not so lovely moments and some fairly mundane moments. It’s actually been quite normal and peaceful which is always nice.

So here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days: Continue reading Feeling Calm #8

Articulate – Review and Competition

We might be a bit behind the times but we have only just found Articulate! from Drumond Park. Of course I had heard of it but we had never played it so I was very excited to get the chance to review it, I’m just as excited to have a copy to give away to one lucky reader.

The husband and I enjoy a good board game, we really do, it’s something a bit different to do of an evening. It means the TV and tech is put to one side for a bit, it means we converse, often laugh, sometimes bicker and generally have fun. Continue reading Articulate – Review and Competition

What I would love for Mother’s Day

So for Mother’s Day all I really want is to spend time with my little family, maybe go to the beach for a walk or be treated to a nice lunch out.
If I were to be purchased something and this truly is the biggest hint I can make, ahem ahem, then here are a few things I would love.

Surprise Box Club Review

I love a good subscription box, they are one of may favourite things. A box full of surprises through your door, what’s not to love? I also love crafting, I enjoy little projects that I can make quickly as I don’t have much time for my own crafting nowadays. Surprise Box Club has combined these two things so I was very excited to get to review a box.

Exploring Imagination with LEGO

When I was a child I loved my LEGO. It was the prized toy. With so many possibilities and it has certainly notched up a gear since I last played with it.  When LEGO asked if we wanted to review some of their newest kits I of course leapt at the chance.

First I shall share with you one of the most tragic moments of my young life.

I was given the LEGO Pirate Ship for Christmas one year. It was amazing, huge, with rigging delicate rigging, cannons that fired little LEGO cannonballs, it even had a parrot. It was the best.

Feeling Calm #7

For my birthday I was given a great new 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 and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

This week we have been dealt a curve ball I never saw coming, one I so desperately need to write about because it is so bloody awful, one I have so many mixed emotions about and one that I could really do with some advice on. But this is one particular curve ball I can’t write about, not just yet, for many reasons.

Colouring to Keep my Toddler Happy

It doesn’t matter how hard I try, sometimes I have to work whilst the little one occupies himself.

The main problem with this is that as soon as I am doing something, he decides that is way more exciting than whatever was holding his attention up until that point, so I have had had to become the master of quick and easy activities that he actually loves.

These happen to be few and far between though. In fact there is only one that is guaranteed to work. Continue reading Colouring to Keep my Toddler Happy
