You may have noticed over the last few days things have been very quiet on my blog. I’m sorry. I have been ridiculously busy. So I would like to share my shining light, Red Kooga, with you. It’s how I’ve gotten through.
Time for my monthly Degustabox feature, if you haven’t seen previous month’s posts, Degustabox is a monthly subscription box, filled with amazing new foods for you to try out. Including new lines from big brands and foods from smaller brands that you maybe weren’t aware of. For £12.99 per box you will have contents worth well in excess of that, so get the chance to try something new and maybe even find a new favourite treat.
The June box was brilliant, such a good selection. A little bit of everything and lots of new things to try and a great excuse for a barbecue. Here’s what I got; Continue reading My June Degustabox
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
I love a good subscription box. I love baking. My family loves eating. So Bake Box was clearly going to be a winner all round.
I have been sent the most recent box, Flower Power, to try out.
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.
It’s been a funny old week. There have been summer colds and grumpiness all round. A tired toddler and a tired mummy is not a mix made in heaven. We’ve had some fun though.
So here are my top 10 moments from the past 7 days; Continue reading Feeling Calm #24
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.
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
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.
Lost My Name make personalised books and their latest tale is all about space travel. L loves rocket ships and the moon at the moment so we were all to eager to have a look at it.
The Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home, follows your child and his robot friend on a little intergalactic space adventure. As you do. But an incident with a spilt drink leaves them without their SatNav. This is where the adventures start and they have to find their way home. Continue reading Beautiful Stories from Lost My Name
I have spent the last two days in Bavaria at the launch of the BenQ GS1. It has been an amazing experience. So I’m really happy that I got to attend.
I had never been to Bavaria before, I actually had to Google it to find out where it was. My geography is atrocious. In fact I had never actually flown by myself before. So there were lots of new experiences for me. Turns out flying by myself was a breeze, it’s so much easier when you aren’t arranging everyone else.
