We recently had a lovely delivery of socks from the Sock Shop and I have been impressed.
I have a bit of a weakness for socks, I’m always buying new ones. I love a fluffy sock, long socks, funny socks. So I’m always happy to get socks. Husb is starting a new job and goes through socks at a rate of knots so it was handy to get some for him. Mainly though I wanted to see if we could find anything for the child, socks are an ongoing and incredibly irritating battle. He is determined he cannot put them on by himself and is painfully fussy about what can be on them.Continue reading Toasty Toes with the Sock Shop
Child or adult the back to school season is stressful. There is a lot to get organised and a lot of change. You would have thought L starting reception last year and having gone through a year of school I would be ready for Year 1 but I am just not.Continue reading Helping Back to School Stress with Zenflore
This summer we visited Pensthorpe Natural Park for the first time, ridiculous as we are local! It is amazing. Really amazing. We had the best day. There is so much to do we can’t wait to visit again to catch the bits we missed and to repeat our fave bits. I can’t sing its praises enough but I shall try to keep this review a reasonable length, promise.Continue reading Pensthorpe Natural PArk
It’s no secret that I love a good list. Planning makes me happy and my love for stationery sits nicely right alongside that. I have to do lists in all shapes and sizes, notepads, jotters, and an amazing planner that I just adore. But I was missing something on the day to day front, which is where Mål Paper come in.Continue reading Mål Paper – Daily Goal Setter
I don’t have to pack a lunch for L yet, he gets free school meals because he’s still little. So when it came to sending him off to Barracudas Activity Day Camps over Easter I was thrown!
He needed enough for a full day, it needed to be tasty, filling and ok out of the fridge. Two snacks, at least, plus lunch. I dropped him off at 9am and didn’t have to pick him up until 4.30pm. That’s a lot of time and a lot of food. Not even taking into account all the running around they would be doing.Continue reading Easy Lunch Box Fillers with Shaken Udder
We know that as the sun comes out we all crawl off the sofa and outdoors for some much needed vitamin D. With this comes family adventures through the forest or runs on the beach, but with all this fun often comes cuts and scrapes.
This summer L has ditched the stabilisers so we’re literally just waiting for the first tumble and grazed elbows and knees. Plus we are literally living in a building site at the moment!Continue reading Summer Healing with Elastoplast
This plus that equals…. my favourite Gins
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 my favourite gins. It’s been hard to narrow it down if I’m honest, but here we go.Continue reading This Plus That Equals…. My Favourite Gins
We have tried to make L’s room as comfortable and calm as possible, for a good night sleep. But we also made sure he put his own mark on it, picking paint colours, carpet and bedding. He adores his bed and we climb up there to read every night but he wanted it to be more like a sofa, for us and for him, during reading time. So when we saw the Kally Kids Pillow I knew it would perfectly. What I didn’t appreciate were the other benefits it would bring.Continue reading Kally Kids Pillow – Review
