Feeling Calm #77

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.

It’s been a busy few days and I’ve felt really under pressure. We’ve also in the middle of a few days off. Which whilst lovely doesn’t actually detract from the pressure. So I’m trying really hard to take a step back and enjoy myself a bit.

So here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

Hey Duggee Toys from Jazwares

I have a confession to make. I enjoy Hey Duggee more than L. Sorry, I’ve said it. It’s true. Whilst he enjoys the show I often have to force him to watch it. I like Hey Duggee on Facebook, not for the parenting or crafting tips, but for the GIFs and show updates.

Kingdom of You from Wonderbly – Review

We’ve worked with Wonderbly several times in the past when they were known as Lost My Name and I couldn’t wait to help them celebrate their amazing rebrand with a review of the fabulous Kingdom of You.

Feeling Calm #76

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.

I have the worst headache and I’m struggling to function let alone keep up. It hasn’t stopped me having some good times though.

So here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

Our Visit to Castle Acre

Earlier in the year I treated us to English Heritage membership. To be fair it was a no brainer. Membership for two adults, with L free, is £30 in Tesco Clubcard Vouchers. So it was next to no money. L loves castles, English Heritage have a lot. It’s free days out for a year.

I’m going to try to write about all the properties we visit using our membership. What I liked, didn’t like, share some pictures. We’ve already made our money back on the membership, so I am very happy it is good value for money.

Peppa Pig & Miffy Toys from Jazwares

L recently got sent a lovely box of toys from Jazwares, including some fab Peppa Pig sets and Miffy toys. To start with I was going to run two separate reviews but as L has been mixing and matching them since the second they arrived, which is one of things I love, it only makes sense to cover them together.

Feeling Calm #75

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. 

It’s been a funny old week. On one hand I’ve been really busy but on the other I can’t think of anything specific I’ve actually done!

So here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

New Buckenham Castle

You know when you have something on your doorstep and you keep on meaning to visit but never get round to it. New Buckenham Castle was that something for us. Well it’s only taken 5 years, but now we’ve been, and we just can’t stop visiting.

Peppa Pig’s Family Home – Review

When we got asked to review the new Peppa Pig’s Family Home set I straight away said yes. L loves Peppa and has recently really got into games where he gets to be the character and play out little scenarios with his toys.
