Sling Stix – Review & Competition

I’m always on the lookout for fun summer games I can play with L. We love being outdoors and running round and have no end of garden toys. I am always happy to add to his outdoor toy selection though, anything that keeps him outdoors is great in my book. So we were delighted to be asked to review Sling Stix.  Continue reading Sling Stix – Review & Competition

Our Day at The Spring Fling 2018

A few weeks ago I was wasting time on Facebook, as you do, when I saw an advert for The Spring Fling. It immediately appealed to me as it involved tractors, the emergency services and animals, all of L’s favourite things. When I looked into it a bit further I saw the tickets were only £9.50 each and included lunch. I was sold.

Easy2Name Labels – Review

It doesn’t matter how hard I try, I cannot ignore the fact L will be starting schools this year. It’s only a couple of weeks until we find out if he got a place at the school in our village. But whilst September may be a lifetime away for him, it’s really not for me and I should start to get organised. Step one – Labels. Clothes, shoes, stationery and bags, you name it’ll need labelling and that’s where Easy2Name Labels comes in.  Continue reading Easy2Name Labels – Review

Celebrating at Chessington World of Adventures

Oh I have been wanting to write this for so long but life has very much got in the way. Last year for L’s birthday we spent the weekend at Chessington World of Adventures. It was amazing. AMAZING.

I’m not really sure why we ended up going to Chessington for his birthday, I’d just been browsing the internet one night and saw that there was a great offer for a hotel stay and two days park entry for around £140 and that we could go for his actual birthday.

New Skills in Your Time

For me the new year wasn’t about resolutions but I did spend the majority of January learning some new skills. I took a Coding for Beginners Course with New Skills Academy.

It took me ages to choose which course to go for, did I go for a WordPress course, that would have been really useful for me and my blog. Did I learn something entirely new? Dog Walking, Payroll or Floristry. With over 200 courses to choose from it wasn’t easy for me but I settled with coding for a few reasons. Continue reading New Skills in Your Time

Dry Overnight? Not Yet!

Toilet training has been an absolute nightmare for us. Taking, and this is no word of a lie, nearly 2 years. The key for us was perseverance and eventually removing all nappies and training pants entirely. Even at night! Continue reading Dry Overnight? Not Yet!
