So what happens when you put a Minion on the front of your kid’s favourite breakfast. Well, the breakfast choice becomes even easier, no arguments over toast or cereal, yoghurt or porridge. Just a straight up, ‘Minion powidge please’. Powidge, or porridge, is Ready Brek in this house, always has been, always will be.  Continue reading How would a Minion Eat Ready Brek?

Feeling Calm #88

For my birthday last year I was given a great 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 since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.

This week has been lovely. Busy, but lovely. It seems that time is just rushing by me at the moment and I’m struggling to keep my head above water, but at least I’m busy with fun things.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

Feeling Calm #87

For my birthday last year I was given a great 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 since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.

This week has been tiring. L has decided that sleep is not really the in thing anymore and as such refuses to do it for long. I’m so tired! It’s been a nice week though. Really nice actually.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

JCB Hydradig 1:32 Diecast Review

A little while back L received some unexpected post. A parcel with his favourite label on the outside, a JCB label. It wasn’t anything I was expecting and had no idea what could be inside so when L opened it up to find a perfect 1:32 Scale Model of a JCB Hydradig he was ecstatic.  Continue reading JCB Hydradig 1:32 Diecast Review

Feeling Calm #86

For my birthday last year I was given a great 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 since and on Wednesday’s (or late on a Tuesday) I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.

This week has felt somewhat more normal. We’ve had some fun, been a bit more relaxed and mostly we have been in charge of our own schedule without being pulled in multiple directions by multiple people. In big news though we have started looking at schools for L next year.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:
