I'm starting something new for 2018. A way to free some of my favourite photos from the past month from my phone. These are snaps I've caught on the hop and catalogue the highs and lows (and the normal bits in between) of the month. This ties in with my resolution to get more photos printed! I'm still undecided on the format so I'll be experimenting a little with how to display the pictures.
There hasn’t been much of these two on the blog lately. They have been loving our new home and the all the space we now have. It has made it easier for them to play together and I can see them growing closer by the day.
Babies are pretty delicate at first and up to the age of 12months their immune systems are weaker meaning they are more vulnerable to catching infection. Milk is a notorious for harboring bacteria making it super important to make sure all baby feeding equipment from bottles and teats to breast-pump parts and even soothers are sterilised before every use. Milton is a household name you can trust when it comes to keeping your family safe and I have one of their fantastic Combi Sterilisers to giveaway to one reader.
Just before Christmas One4all, the multi retailer gift card challenged me to shop for the perfect outfit using one of their loaded gift cards. I was super excited and had a wonderful day shopping on my own (yes on my own without the kids) looking for an outfit for my Grandparents Diamond Wedding Anniversary lunch. Not many couples make it to 60years married so this was a special family occasion.
This weekend saw my Sister in Law turn 40 and I decorated her this very special cake as part of some fun celebrations up in town.
A healthy diet can give your kids a great start in life. The food a child eats can impact on their development and their overall state of health. The British Nutrition Foundation recommends that children should eat a healthy, varied diet which includes starchy carbohydrates, fruit, vegetables, protein and some dairy food.
Of course, it’s much easier to talk about eating the healthy diet recommended by the NHS, than to actually do it. Especially if you’re faced with a brood of fussy eaters. How can you get a little girl who demands a ham sandwich with the crusts cut off at every meal to fall in love with a variety of foods such as bulgur wheat kedgeree with spinach? Here are a few suggestions on how to encourage those fussy eaters to expand the range of food they eat and try new and delicious healthy dishes.
Hello 2018! As the year drew to a close I found myself thinking a lot about how my 2017 panned out. It was a super busy year for us and a pretty good one all in all. Thanks to Nina for nominating me to take part in Kate's Highs and Lows of 2017 blogger tag which helped me pin down the special moments (and the not so special). Here's the roundup of my year...
Last Sunday of 2017! Here we are at midnight. The Littlest crashed at 10:30 but Little E made it to the fireworks. Happy New Year all!
Heroism, Laughter, Romance, Adventure - Disney has it all by the bucket load plus some rather catchy tunes. Put that all on an ice rink and what a show you have! We are very excited to announce we have been invited to Disney on Ice presents Passport to Adventure tour which is hitting the O2 this month. Hosted by Mickey and Minnie we will be taken on a tour of the globe meeting all our favourite Disney characters along the way - I'm bursting to tell the kids about our Christmas treat but we are keeping it a secret!!!
We moved house this week which was rather epic. A lot of mixed emotions flying around. Whilst I am super excited to me move to a bigger home saying goodbye to our old house which holds so many wonderful memories was difficult. We bought both our babies home to that house. The little room which was the nursery both times was the hardest room to close the door on. So I’ve decided to share a picture of our last meal together in the old house before I start making new memories in our new home.
