My First JCB Stacking Stanley Review

Last week we were hit with some pretty intense weather. The Beast From The East hit us quite badly in Norfolk and we found ourselves being stuck at home from Tuesday to Saturday. Even though it was cold I wanted to get Erin outside, at least for a little while. This is the first time Erin has really experienced snow and I hate for her to be cooped up indoors for too long. While the snow is fun on its own, Erin doesn’t really know what to do with it yet so taking some extra toys outside with us was

How To Find The Perfect Curtains

Buying curtains – it’s as simple as finding a pair you like and then just hanging them up, right? However, curtains aren’t always one-size-fits-all and there are a few things you need to think about when finding the perfect pair, especially when you have a baby and pets to think about too! Get the right size and style for your home by following our simple checklist: Fitting the Pole First of all, you’ll have to measure for your new curtain pole or track to hang the curtains on. When measuring the width of the pole, you’ll probably need to add

Earn More With Swagbucks Spring SWAGO

It’s no secret that I like to earn myself a bit of extra cash each month by doing things like surveys and watching videos online. One of my favourite sites is Swagbucks and I use it daily! The digital rewards site Swagbucks is offering big payouts during their “Swago: Spring Edition” promotion, which runs from now through Monday, March 12th at 9am PT! Swago is just like bingo, but in this case you’re filling out squares as you earn points on their site for doing things you already do online. If you’re thinking of trying Swagbucks, this is a great

World Book Day Fail

On 22nd February I found out that Erin’s nursery would also be taking part in World Book Day. Yes, that’s 1 week before World Book Day. I’m pretty crap at things like this anyway but to have pretty much no notice and no creativity whatsoever was not a good thing at all. Erin’s school wanted to do traditional fairy tales so that really narrows down options. That day after I picked Erin up from nursery we headed to Sainsbury’s to see what we could get her to wear. I’m not really a Disney princess fan so I was hoping for absolutely

How To Prepare Your Garden For Spring

Now that the Beast From The East is firmly behind us I think we can finally start looking forwards towards spring. One thing I love the most about spring is being able to get out in the garden again. I really miss spending time in the garden over winter but unfortunately, the rain destroys a large part of our lawn if we walk on it too much. There will be a lot of people in the same position as me so I thought I’d share some tips on how to prepare your garden for spring. Clear The Weeds Giving your

Creations From Nursery

When Erin started going to nursery one of the things I was strangely looking forward to was her bringing things home with her. Although we don’t do too much of it at home, Erin loves some messy play and she loves to play with colours and crayons. I knew that these kinds of activities at nursery would be some of her favourites and I wasn’t wrong. Erin has only been going for 2 months but already she has been sent home with lots of creations from nursery. Erin is only 2 so I know that really, she just likes to

Preparing For Toilet Training

For a while now I have been debating whether or not to start toilet training with Erin. I had noticed her showing certain signs before Christmas so it’s been in the back of my mind since then really. Apparently, there are 6 signs to look out for if children are ready to toilet train and these are: Going to hide when doing a wee or poo Pulling at a wet nappy in discomfort Having dry nappies for a longer period of time Being interested in other people using the toilet Waking up from a nap with a dry nappy Letting
