You know those days when you’ve been busy and dinner has ended up being a bit later than planned. You’re tired, the children are tired and it’s all just a little bit too close to breaking down entirely. If people aren’t fed soon there is a high potential for tears all round. This leaves you with very limited choices, usually involving toast. Well I’ve taken part in the BritMums and Rustlers Burger Hack Challenge and to say I have had my eyes opened is understatement.

Christmas Shopping at Sports Direct? But you don’t like sports, know nothing about sports and unless told what to buy would have no idea what to get anyone who was sporty. So what are you doing Christmas Shopping at Sports Direct I hear you cry. Well I was challenged by Sports Direct and BritMums to find a couple of Christmas Gifts for £5. So here is my #sdfiverchallenge and it was very easy, very easy indeed. Continue reading Christmas Shopping at Sports Direct
Fruit is never something I’ve really struggled to get into L, but sometimes finding a fruity snack he can handle himself is awkward. So the#ChileanEasyPeelers challenge with BritMums really appealed to me. Continue reading #ChileanEasyPeelers Challenge
It’s feels like a never ending task. With at least one load a day I’ll take whatever I can to make the job more pleasurable, so I joined BritMums #EcoverLaundry Challenge.
I’ll be honest, L literally doesn’t need an excuse to have a dance. Any time, any place he’s up for a sing and a wiggle. So taking part in the #FrubesMoves challenge with BritMums and Yoplait Frubes was a no brainer for us.
Today he was singing Old MacDonald’s Farm, in the middle of a museum. If he’s at home he’s always asking for the music on so we can have a dance together. Let’s not even talk about the epic car singing. I mean the louder you can la, la, la to any song the better right?! At least he seems partial to Fall Out Boy and Foo Fighters.
Unilever and BritMums recently set a very interesting challenge. The #BrightFuture initiative is all about uniting communities and encouraging small changes in everyday life that will in turn have a positive impact on the world.
It all sounds very big doesn’t it? I have very little to do with my local community and honestly don’t think about the things we do at home as having an impact on anyone, let alone the world. Continue reading Creating a #BrightFuture with Unilever
How do you get on packing lunches? I struggle. It’s not that I can’t pack a box, of course I can. It’s just getting in some variety and a good level of nutrients that gets to me. So I was intrigued about the #FloraLunchBox Challenge with BritMums.
I pack lunches for my husband at work, myself on days I work and for L if we are going on a day out somewhere. Thankfully nursery take care of him food wise when he is there and feed him amazing food. I’ve threatened to join them for lunch on more than one occasion.
Because when I pack lunch everybody tends to get the same thing. Every. Single. Time.
I love Aldi. I’ll make no bones about it. It’s cheap, stocks my favourite lemonade with coconut and lime in it and my second favourite bottle of Pinot. The SpecialBuys are some of my favourite things ever. Oh and the nappies and wipes are amazing.
My Aldi love story has only been added to recently. You see I have been taking part in the Aldi #MamiaDaysOut Challenge with BritMums so I was sent a very lovely hamper filled with goodies to get out and about with from the Mamia range.
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.
