Planning A Playdate With The Teletubbies

When it comes to playing with Erin sometimes I get really stuck for ideas, especially if we end up stuck indoors due to the unpredictable British weather. We tend to do the same things a lot of the time and we don’t have much variety. I think I can safely say the same for the times where John and Erin have time on their own too. Thankfully, Erin goes to nursery for 3 days a week and the variation she gets is so good for her. So, when I heard about the Teletubbies Playdate Pack I was excited to see

BRIO Classic Train Review

Erin has now been going to nursery for nearly half a year and since she started, she has come home liking all different ways of playing and different kinds of toys. She is so interested in how things work and pulling things apart and putting them back together again. Nursery, along with Thomas the Tank Engine and regular family trips has sparked Erin’s interest in trains. She loves to go on them and loves to look out for them when she knows we’re near the train station so what better than a toy train from BRIO. The BRIO Classic Train

4 Easy Ways To Look After Your Skin After 30!

This year I turned 32 and although I knew it deep down, I realised that my skin really isn’t as good as it used to be. As a teenager I used to have pretty perfect skin and spots were a rarity. However, 15 years of smoking (2.5 years smoke-free) and not really looking after myself, my skin has suffered and it’s time to sort it out. So, here are some easy ways to look after your skin! Drink More Water I know this one is really obvious but I am terrible for not drinking enough water. Sometimes when you’re on

Planning Our Haven Holiday

In early December John won an award at work, which I was super proud of him for. With his award he also won £100 of vouchers which we could have used in loads of different places. We could have been sensible and bought the new iron that we need, or a new lawnmower but instead we did something even better… we booked a holiday. Mostly, the vouchers could be used in shops but somewhere else that accepted them was Haven. We already had a holiday to Majorca booked for April and Center Parcs in October but I have wanted to go

Toddler Summer Clothes Haul From George

Even though we went on holiday last month Erin didn’t have nearly enough clothes to last her the summer. I did go on a little shopping trip to our local Sainsbury’s store not too long ago but didn’t really manage to get what I wanted for Erin, especially as some of what I bought doesn’t fit yet. We live in a small town and while Norwich is only 30 minutes away by train, it’s not really very convenient if you need something quickly. So, I have always liked the clothes from Asda for myself and I remember having loads for Erin

Finding The Perfect Summer Shoes With JD Williams

I hate winter. I absolutely hate it. I cannot stand the cold and wearing winter boots for months on end is my idea of hell. If it wasn’t super cold a lot of the time I would probably wear sandals all year round. Having hot feet is horrible and I love the freedom of wearing sandals. The sandals I had last year were a bit beaten up after playing in the garden with Erin for hours on end so this year I desperately needed some new shoes ready for summer. JD Williams came to the rescue and really kitted me

Erin’s First Visit To The Circus

Erin goes to a pretty amazing school and we knew immediately that it was the one for her when we went to look around. Earlier this week the school had a visit from Circus Ferrel. This is a circus with a bit of a difference as it’s not the kind of thing you go to normally. This circus was set in the school grounds and it is actually a circus that makes visits to school. During the day the circus teaches workshops to the children and all of this is free of charge to the school. (They cover Norfolk, Suffolk, North Essex

Advice For Taking Your Dog On A Family Holiday

If you are a family with pets then going away on holiday could become a real hassle. We know from experience that sorting out either sitters for your pets, or putting them into kennels can cost a small fortune and that’s without making sure all of their jabs are up to date.

Before you decide to take your dog away on the family holiday though there are a few things to consider so here are some tips: Destination Choosing a destination for your family
