Getting out and about is one of the things we love to do as a family. Jake has always been energetic and never one for staying still so we have had to discover plenty of ways to keep him both physically and mentally busy. As with all children, Jake goes through phases of what he likes but right now he is very much into anything with army print and involves role-playing. Having already heard of Wicked Uncle and knowing how vast their range of children’s toys is, I was very happy to be asked to review some items of my choice.

Gardening for me has become a hobby that I love and with each year that we live here, I am even more determined to perfect ours. Unfortunately, our gardening tools are starting to fail us and we’ve been living with a secondhand lawnmower that has the handle taped together in a desperate attempt to save it for a little longer and a grass trimmer that gave up the ghost years ago– leaving me to trim all the border edges with garden scissors… yep, its a tedious job but the perfectionist in me just cannot leave it!

I am a clean freak, I can happily admit this although since having children I’ve had to let things slide a little… ok, a lot more. I now find cleaning to be a task that has to be planned, that takes the whole week and that has to be pretty quick. Long gone are the days where I spent an entire day cleaning my home from top to bottom and even though I don’t miss spending my days doing this I do miss how clean my home was each week.

Having a treat for myself these days is a rarity. I am currently in the throws of that newborn haze and am so sleep-deprived that sugar has become my go-to food source… on an hourly basis! So, when Lisa from Petite Pops asked me to review her cake pops there was no way I could refuse.
Lisa began her new venture after baking cake pops Continue reading “Review: Petite Pops Cakes”
With William arriving prematurely, it has been a very different experience to what it is usually would be when you have a baby. One of the most notable differences is not being able to create beautiful, memorable photos from the moment they are born. Of course, photos can be taken in NICU but they aren’t ones you would want to put up around the house, are they? It is amazing to watch your baby’s progress and to document it via pictures but I was longing to be able to take a stunning photo of my boys together at last. Continue reading “Review: Creating Memories with Photowall”
Having used a TENS machine during my first labour and getting great results from it, I knew I would need to use one for my second labour, especially as I was adamant that I was going to have a natural birth. So, when Babycare TENS got into contact with me to ask me to try out their new Elle TENS2 machine I jumped at the chance. Continue reading “Babycare Elle TENS2 Review”
As you will know from some of my Facebook posts, dinner time can be a real struggle in our household. Breakfast can go down a treat and can even last all morning, lunch is usually a healthy selection of finger foods which includes meat, cheese, fruit and so on but dinner time? That is a whole other ball game! Hot meals are not Jake’s favourite and trying new foods is a battle I have started to despise at 5pm. I’m not sure why this has occured but he has always been a very choky child and has always had issues with different textures so I think it has become a natural progression over the last couple of years.
