Making Bath Time Fun Again With Kids Stuff Crazy

AD | Gifted products Back in February Erin broke her arm and she had to go about 7 weeks with her arm in a cast. Although she coped with it really well, bath time and getting washed was a bit of an issue. Erin’s cast went really far up her arm and one of those special covers wouldn’t fit. We don’t have a shower so poor Erin was stuck having her hair washed once a week laying backwards over the bath and had it rinsed with a jug. To say she was unhappy was an understatement. When Erin’s cast finally

An Evening Reliving My Teenage Years

My absolute favourite band when I was growing up was 5ive. I knew all of the songs, I knew the dance moves and I definitely had my favourite. It had always been a dream of mine to see them in concert but it didn’t happen back in the ’90s. However, I did manage to go and see them at an outdoor concert at Chantry Park in Ipswich a few years ago and it was like a dream come true. My good friend Kirsty from The Overflowing Library is also a fellow fan of ’90s boy bands and months ago she

Planning For An Unknown Future

AD | Collaborative post When you’re younger, maybe in your late teens or early 20s, it’s really easy to ignore that the future will happen. I know because this was me at those ages. In fact, it was me in my late 20s as well. To be completely honest it wasn’t until I met John, bought a house and started a family that I really started to think about certain things. Death isn’t a nice subject but it’s one we need to think about carefully and plan for. Wills So what can you do to plan for the future? Something

Baby Annabell Carriage Pram Review

AD | Gifted I think it was from Erin staring nursery that she started to show an interest in doll and babies and it wasn’t long before she was asking for one of her own. Over the past couple of years Erin has changed how she plays with her dolls and she loves the accessories that go with them. Erin was recently sent a pretty big accessory and that was the Baby Annabell Carriage Pram. A new pram or pushchair is something Erin had wanted for a while so when she first saw it saying she was excited would be

Stepping Into Spring With Lindex Kids

AD | Gifted We’ve had a couple of awful months of weather and what seems like never ending storms. Everything has seemed to be dark, grey and miserable and it’s put a real downer on our moods. With the sun finally starting to shine and the daffodils blooming, it seems like spring is finally around the corner. Of course, with a new season (and a growth spurt) comes a new wardrobe and this spring we have discovered Lindex, a clothing brand for women and children. As I was browsing the kids range, which goes from 2-8 years, what immediately stood
