A Sparkly Glitter Party with Hartley’s Jelly

To celebrate the launch of Hartley’s new Mixed Berry Glitter Jelly they sent us a lovely box of goodies so we could have our own sparkly party.

I’m always happy to have an impromptu party, especially a glittery one.  As we had been enjoying such glorious weather it made sense to get out in the garden with a barbecue and our decorations to enjoy our party. Continue reading A Sparkly Glitter Party with Hartley’s Jelly

Barbecue Party Review & Competition

Barbecue Party from Drumond Park is the ideal game for the summer. We’ve been testing it out at home and have one to giveaway.

As it is aimed at ages 4+ the lovely folk at Drumond park were aware it was a little too grown up for L, but as my friends all have older kids it’s nice to have something in the house for them to play with.

Of course as soon as it arrived it was unpacked ready for the older ‘children’ to play with. By this I blatantly mean the husband and I, so we set it up one evening after L had gone to bed.  Continue reading Barbecue Party Review & Competition

A Robinsons Water Challenge

I have been trying very hard over recent months to make sure I drink enough water, but I hadn’t given much thought to how much L was drinking. So when I saw the Robinsons #EnjoyMoreWater challenge with BritMums I just knew I had to take part.

Facts – 64% of parents say they do not know how much water their children should be drinking each day, 42% saying their children find the taste of water boring.

L is definitely right there with the finding water boring, he has always enjoyed squash in his drinks. Whilst I have absolutely no idea how much water he should drink I have never overly worried either as he seems to constantly have a drink in his hand. Was he actually drinking from it though, or just playing?

Cooking with Goldfish Curry Sauce

A few weeks back I wrote about the wonder Sourced Locally Fortnight run by the East of England Co-op. One of the amazing local brands they featured got in touch, Keejays, who are just over the Norfolk border in Suffolk. They make Goldfish Curry Sauce and wanted to see if I would like to try out some of their sauces for myself. Of course, I said yes.  Continue reading Cooking with Goldfish Curry Sauce

Feeding the Birds with Chapelwood

We are a very outdoorsy family and spend a lot of time in the garden. L loves being outdoors and exploring nature.  He was very excited to be sent a special bird feeder from the Chapelwood Children’s Range.

As soon as his lovely Owl Bird Feeder arrived we had to go and fill it up to give the birds their tea. The feeder is best filled with peanuts or sunflower hearts, but all we had in the house was a mixed bird seed and L had decided the birds needed their tea right that second! Obviously there was a bit of spillage but it holds the mixed seed well.
