L was recently sent the new Ben 10 Omni Cycle toy. It’s bright green, transforms and comes with a Ben 10 character to ride it. Retailing at £19.99 it’s not too expensive, so great if you want to treat your children especially with the Easter holidays looming.
L loves Blippi and has done for so long now. It all started through his love of tractors and us trying to find some suitable and not completely boring tractor videos for him to watch on YouTube.
Blippi was there for us and as L has grown so has Blippi, with videos for every occasion, music albums, books, clothes and toys. A lot of which have only been available in America. But the toys have now launched in the UK and we were sent a huge box of them to celebrate.
Do your kids have sleepovers yet? L seems to be in the minority amongst his friends in that he does. L and his best friend from nursery have had several sIeepovers and they love it. Even If they are little terrors.
It helps that we are good friends with the parents and that both of us are happy for the other to look after and tell each others children what’s what!
We have recently finished extending our house and building the perfect space, we are now in the midst of finishing each room and making sure it is all lovely. The Towel Shop have been a great help.
Part of that has also been refreshing existing rooms. We have put some effort into making our conservatory a space to relax, rather than just be a dumping ground for the things we had no room for and we have given our master bedroom a refresh.
Well that’s it, we are solidly into 2020 and all the excesses of Christmas and New Year have me feeling like I might actually now be more cheese than human, with chocolate flowing through my veins and a good dose of mince pie in there somewhere too.
I’m not going on some massive health kick now it’s January, I just genuinely find myself craving something a little lighter, a bit more savoury and generally healthier when I find myself reaching for the snacks.
Let’s talk school shoes. A constant expense. If it’s not our children constantly growing, it’s the shoes themselves wearing out. The shoes I bought L at the start of the school year didn’t even make it to half term, we’re on our second pair already! So when Treads got in touch to see if I’d like to review a pair of their school shoes, complete with a one year guarantee, I was very intrigued.
When it comes to Christmas flavours Pickled Walnuts are a real classic, but other than enjoying them with cheese an biscuits what can you do with them? They’re actually rather versatile and I love the mix of flavours in this Pickled Walnut, Potato and Thyme Frittata.
It’s a lovely light meal and great for using up any leftover potatoes from the roast. Warm, nutty, festive and perfectly satisfying it’s the perfect meal to enjoy on Boxing Day after all the excesses of Christmas.
Prestige Hampers offer a wide variety of hampers for all occasions but I was recently sent one of their Luxury Christmas Hampers. The perfect way for you send someone a lovely and thoughtful gift or even just an amazing way to treat yourself and get set up for the big day.
The hamper came all boxed up and was delivered safely. From the second you open the box you can feel the luxury, from the large wicker hamper with leather fittings, to the wooden gift tag. That’s all before you even open it up, an when you do you are in for a treat.
