Summer Crafts With Baker Ross


We were recently sent a box full of goodies from Baker Ross’ summer range. As usual the kids were ultra excited over the idea of having more fun things to make so were ripping away at the packaging before I’d actually had a chance to get photos of everything together!

We’ve spent the last month having fun craft sessions together after school and during wet weekends, it’s always great to see how things end up looking after each child has been Keep reading…

Casdon Little Helpers Ironing Set


This probably isn’t something that a proper mum should admit to but ah well …when this lovely Casdon Ironing Set arrived for us to review my children *might* (okay they did) have asked ‘What is it Mummy? What does it do?’

That’s right, they’ve not seen an ironing board and an iron, certainly not in this house anyway as I don’t think I’ve ironed anything since I was about 16 and my mum ‘made’ me do it. I was always the Keep reading…

Mixing Up Playtime Magic


We were recently set a challenge by BritMums and Petitis Filous to show how we Mix Up the Magic on playdates to make our playtime more fun, just like Petitis Filous have made snack time more fun by creating Magic Squares.

Magic Squares are available in Strawberry & Vanilla and Raspberry & Vanilla and what makes them unique is the way the flavours are combined together in the pot – just like a chequerboard. This means that each flavour can be eaten Keep reading…

Schleich Riding Arena Review

Riding Arena4

From the moment Alexa set her little eyes on the Schleich Riding Arena, she was a very over excited little girl. She’s recently become interested in horses and ponies so this is clearly the best thing ever as far as she’s concerned.

The Riding Arena is aimed at ages 3+ and comes packaged neatly in its box complete with the following items:
Arena/Shelter – needs to be assembled by putting the legs on but these can also be removed for ease Keep reading…

CBeebies Swashbuckle Magazine Review


Scott and Alexa love reading (well, looking through!) magazines and watching Swashbuckle on CBeebies, so when I was offered the chance for them to get the first ever issue of the new Swashbuckle magazine of course I said yes.

Whenever Swashbuckle is on tv, both of them get ultra excited and then eventually comes the high-pitched squealing about how great it would be to be on the show …I’m guessing it’s just how I used to be when it came to watching Fun Keep reading…

I’m Taking Part In The #SlimFastChallenge


I’m fat, really fat. I’ve said it before and it’s not something I hide…not like I could if you saw me!!

I’m trying to lose weight as I want to be able to do more with my beautiful children and I don’t want them being bullied for having a fat mum. So far, by myself, I’ve managed to lose 7.5lbs in the last 2 weeks (which I’m documenting over at Is It Bedtime Yet?!).

When I saw that Slim Fast were looking Keep reading…

‘It Makes Me Happy Mummy’

You’re probably wondering what it is that makes my sweet little girl happy …

well ..



That’s right, black.

In the last week or two everything she gets to colour in or paint ends up black.
I gave her some colouring sheets with pictures of princesses on and they ended up dressed in black.
We were doing some crafts from Baker Ross and the polystyrene fish and the ceramic gnome ended up black, she even cried when I wrote the name she chose for her Keep reading…
