#MeatMatters Quick and Easy Dinner

When BritMums got in touch to see if anyone would like to share a quick and easy #MeatMatters Beef or Lamb based recipe that the family loves I just knew it would have to be Spaghetti and Meatballs, the kid loves it and it’s so quick and easy.

It also helps that he is obsessed with the Grinch movie at the moment and loves watching him eat a giant pile of meatballs at the start of the film, so I know I’m onto a winner when I serve it for dinner.

The #LoveFreshCherries Challenge

I love cherries, one of my favourite fruits, so I figured this would be a pretty easy (and delicious) challenge to partake in. I was right. We’re right in the middle of British Cherry season so the #LoveFreshCherries Challenge, sponsored by Love Fresh Cherries, is all about celebrating this tasty fruit.

Rustlers Burger Hack Challenge

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.  Continue reading Rustlers Burger Hack Challenge

Christmas Shopping at Sports Direct

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

Some very groovy #FrubesMoves

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.

We can’t keep this one still

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.

Creating a #BrightFuture with Unilever

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

My #FloraLunchBox Challenge

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.
