What To Do When Your Child Gets Their First Wobby Teeth

Just a couple of days before her 5th birthday, Erin told John that her teeth felt wobbly. He didn’t really believe her at the time, thinking 5 was a bit too young for baby teeth to be falling out. Then, when she told me I just had to check and there they were, two wobbly teeth on the bottom row. Immediately, I thought back to her very first birthday, which was the day that both of these teeth came through. Erin was a little bit worried to begin with, I think not really understanding what might happen to her teeth.

Home Improvement Plans For 2021

Just a couple of weeks ago I wrote about all of the things we got done around the house and in the garden over the last year. It has really got me in the mood to make some plans for 2021 and to think about some of the jobs that we might like to get done this year. Quotes, quotes and more quotes The thing about our house is that it’s old and needs loads of work doing to it. We haven’t been able to really afford to do anything until last year so now we’re left with massive lists

Asmodee Blogger Board Game Club Review – Hint

This month, as part of the Asmodee Blogger Board Game Club we have been playing Hint*. This one is a bit different from some of the other games we have been playing recently as this one is a four player game, and needs to be played in teams. What I immediately liked about Hint was that you don’t need a huge playing board, lots of pieces that could easily get lost or something that takes up a lot go space. The wheel is already housed in the box and setting up the wheel only takes a few seconds. Inside the

5 Ways To Get Out With The Family In 2021

Guest post by Daddilife.com With recent news of ongoing, and perhaps where you are even more extreme, restrictions in place, in many ways the start of 2021 doesn’t feel much different to last year. Which is why it’s essential that this year, we make a long list of things you can do outdoors as a family.  Getting outdoors, whether for minutes each day or planning something at the weekend is going to a the necessary release the family needs after spending another huge block of time indoors and in the home for most of the week. Here’s some ideas for

The Year That Christmas Was Different

Covid, lockdowns and tier changes… all things I don’t think any of us thought would happen this year. A few days before Christmas the rules changed yet again and this meant a lot of people having to rethink and replan their Christmases, us included. Although this Christmas wasn’t the same as normal, or even what we expected, we made the most of what we could do. s We started Christmas Eve with a Christmas Eve box. This is something we’ve done for Erin for years now but this is the first year she’s really been able to get excited about

The Adventures We Had In 2020

2020 has been a strange old year and it’s definitely not been the one we expected or planned. We started off well but then Covid hit us in March and everything went completely crazy from there, right up to the end of the year. Although it’s been a strange year we still managed to have some great adventures. January With Mum now living with us this meant that John and I were able to start going out for meals alone or with friends again and in January we went for a lovely meal at The White Horse. It was so

Home Improvements We’ve Achieved This Year

John and I bought our house back in 2014 so we’ve lived here for quite some time now. When we moved in we got a couple of big jobs done but since I was pregnant in 2015 it’s been really slow going. 2020 was the first year in a while where I feel like we actually achieved something with the house and ticked off a couple of jobs. Living room/ dining room carpet Right at the beginning of the year we decided to get a big job done in the living room and dining room. The front half of the
