Canal Anti-Bacterial Slime

With the kids back at school I’m thinking more and more about handwashing and antibacterial hand gel again. Its been ok whilst he’s been home because I’m there to monitor everything and have plenty of moisturiser. I can’t be there all the time though. We’ve recently been using the Anti-Bacterial Slime from Canal Toys and it’s been fun.

Win a Vamousse Bundle

The kids are back at school. It’s been a hard few weeks here, L hasn’t wanted to go back, the chopping and changing has really unsettled him and there have been tears most mornings, it’s been tough. On the whole I’m pleased he’s back, but unlike most of the parents on social media I wasn’t desperate for his return, I rather enjoyed having him home with me.

Win a Lunch Bag from Bibetta

How many lunch bags do you go through? The corners get all icky, things get spilt, the zips get clogged up with something unmentionable and then after the school holidays there’s always that worry of finding a three week old satsuma. Even when I was taking my own lunch bag to work it was still difficult to stop the accumulation of crumbs in the corner. That’s why Bibetta make a washable lunch bag. Yes, you heard me, washable. As simple as that.

Mindful Minis – Mindful Month

I am a big fan of mindfulness, I meditate and enjoy yoga when I can. After spending the vast majority of my adult life, if not all of my adult life struggling with my mental health I can safely say finding mindfulness was a turning point for me.

Journalling, meditating and just being more aware helped change me as a person. I became more aware of what was good in my life, what made me happy and what I needed to be more level. It helped me notice sooner when I was falling under and it helped me pull my way back up.

Win a Safari Bedding Set from Bloomsbury Mill

There is one thing always guaranteed to bring a smile to my son’s face and that’s a giraffe. It’s hard to explain how excited he was to get his new Safari Bedding set from Bloomsbury Mill. 

We’ve struggled quite a bit around bedtime with him during this latest lockdown. He’s just not sleeping well at all and doesn’t want to be away from us, even if it’s only one room away.

Readmio – Review

On a week where L had been focusing on The Three Little Pigs at school and we had read, watched and listened to various bland and boring versions of the story seemingly thousands of times we needed a bit more excitement in our topic. Thankfully we discovered Readmio, or should I say, Readmio discovered us and we were enamoured.
