Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and it’s not too late if you’ve forgotten as it doesn’t take much to make it really special. Here are my tips and I know they are good ones, because as a mum they would make me happy. Continue reading A Little Something Special from Champney’s
For the last few weeks we have been using the Motorola Focus 85 HD WiFi video monitoring camera.
We have had various home cams over the last year or so, so far they have all been static so I was really excited that with the Motorola Focus 85 we could zoom, pan and tilt the camera remotely.
Hartley’s Jelly have created a tasty and fun recipe that you can make with the kids or maybe with a bit of help they could make for mum as a treat on Sunday.
They kindly sent me through a lovely box filled with some of the bits I woudl need to make up the pies as well as some of their latest latest products, the Fruit in Jelly pots and the new flavour in the 10cal Jelly pots, they also sent some lovely bits for L to make a card for me with.
This is a super easy, really quick chicken recipe that you can serve with chips, mash and veg or just in a sarnie. In fact it’s so easy it barely counts as a recipe! All you need is small chicken fillets, a bottle of Jack Daniel’s Honey Barbecue Glaze and some cooking oil.
In the morning before you pop off to work, or when you’ve got a spare few minutes pop the mini fillets in a zip lock bag, add a generous helping of the JD Honey Barbecue Glaze, seal, shake and pop in the fridge until you’re ready to cook it.

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:
Please tell me I am not the only one who sometimes finds themselves standing at the fridge wondering how on earth you are going to prepare a meal with what you’ve got, one that’s quick, easy and will be enjoyed by your toddler. It’s not just me is it?
I wish I was the kind of mum who was organised enough to always have meals planned and live with a permanently stocked fridge, but I am not. So when Kiddyum got in touch to see if L would like to try some of their frozen ready meal range I was really excited.
This plus that equals….massive Mummy Guilt
Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is what gives me a good case of mummy guilt!

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
