Win a Melissa & Doug Spring Cleaning Bundle

Need a hand keeping the house in shape? Well why not get the kids involved, or at least keep them busy playing so you can whip round with the vacuum! It seems to be a constant battle in our house to keep on top of things, I’ll clean and then turn my back and it’s back to how it was.

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.
