A Zuru Party Bag

Is it only me or has party season really kicked off? With a party next week and two in April the kid has a better social life than I do. Trouble is, gifts! What do you get? He has only been at school since September, one of these kids I don’t know at all, one I know the mum but have no idea what the girl likes and the third I think I have an idea but I’m honestly far from sure.

Enter Zuru, with a great range of toys they are well and truly to the rescue.

Celebrating at Chessington World of Adventures

Oh I have been wanting to write this for so long but life has very much got in the way. Last year for L’s birthday we spent the weekend at Chessington World of Adventures. It was amazing. AMAZING.

Beautiful Cards from Ayoma Cards

Zoe sells completely handmade and personalised greetings cards on her Etsy shop, which you should completely check out.  But she has also launched Ayoma Cards Monthly, a new monthly subscription box service for the cards and I have tried it out.

L’s 3rd Birthday Party

L turned three the other weekend so to celebrate we had a little birthday party with our family.

He is happy with the attention for the day and it keeps both the cost and stress manageable for me, just, it’s still stressful filling your house with people, family or not!

To My Son on Your Third Birthday

Oh my word tomorrow is your birthday and you will be three years old and I literally don’t know where the time has gone.

You have changed so much this year it is hard to know what to say to you.

I asked him to smell the flowers, picturing a gorgeous shot in my head, this is what he does.

More than anything I want you to know how loved you are and how special you are. I hope you know this anyway and it is doesn’t need to be written down.
