Canal Anti-Bacterial Slime

With the kids back at school I’m thinking more and more about handwashing and antibacterial hand gel again. Its been ok whilst he’s been home because I’m there to monitor everything and have plenty of moisturiser. I can’t be there all the time though. We’ve recently been using the Anti-Bacterial Slime from Canal Toys and it’s been fun.

Win a Vamousse Bundle

The kids are back at school. It’s been a hard few weeks here, L hasn’t wanted to go back, the chopping and changing has really unsettled him and there have been tears most mornings, it’s been tough. On the whole I’m pleased he’s back, but unlike most of the parents on social media I wasn’t desperate for his return, I rather enjoyed having him home with me.

Garden Time

It’s nearly time! It’s nearly time to see people. Not just one person on your daily exercise but up to 6 people or 2 families in the comfort of your garden. I am excited but also rather on edge about this.

Last time restrictions lifted for a bit I felt this way. The months and months of an empty diary rather suited my hermit like tendencies. I’m not a social butterfly and not having to see people all the time sat well with me. At the same time, just to really confuse me, I’ve missed people.

Win a Lunch Bag from Bibetta

How many lunch bags do you go through? The corners get all icky, things get spilt, the zips get clogged up with something unmentionable and then after the school holidays there’s always that worry of finding a three week old satsuma. Even when I was taking my own lunch bag to work it was still difficult to stop the accumulation of crumbs in the corner. That’s why Bibetta make a washable lunch bag. Yes, you heard me, washable. As simple as that.

Work Style with Trendhim

The time has come to start thinking about my husband’s return to the office. It’s weird writing this, it feels like a back to school thing but the kid has been in and out of school like a yo-yo, whereas my husband has been into his office three or four times in the last 12 months. He’s now starting to get prepared for a more permanent switch back to the office in the next few months and it feels like we really need to get prepared for it. Thankfully Trendhim have been here to help.
