Playing With The Disney Puppy Dog Pals

Disclaimer: We received items for the purpose of this post. All opinions are our own.  Erin’s taste in toys is quite varied but two of her favourites are play sets and anything to do with dogs. When we were offered the chance to review some items from the Disney Puppy Dog Pals toy range I knew that Erin would love them. A play set with dogs? Exactly the kind of thing that Erin likes to play with. Puppy Dog Pals is a relatively new show to us on Disney Jr. and it follows Rolly and Bingo, two pugs who get up

Baby Bjorn Booster Seat Review

AD – We received this product for the purpose of this post. All opinions are our own.  When we first stared weaning with Erin all that time ago we thought we had a highchair that would like a long time. Erin seemed to really like it to start with but as soon as she was on the move she wasn’t having any of it. Erin is, and really always has been, an independent child who likes to be the same as us and do things for herself. This has meant that she wants to sit in the big seats like we

Aladdin At Norwich Theatre Royal

AD – We received complimentary tickets for the purpose of this post. All opinions are our own.  I honestly couldn’t tell you the last time I went to see a panto over Christmas. We used to go every single year as a family when I was growing up and I loved the tradition. Since moving away from home and generally just being busy with life I haven’t had to chance to go again but this year I was invited by Norwich Theatre Royal to watch this year’s panto Aladdin! Unfortunately, when I see the casts of some pantos sometimes I have

Win With Sudocrem’s Snowball Fight

Disclaimer: This is a collaborative post. All opinions are our own.  Even before Erin was born I have been a huge fan of Sudocrem.

Of course, we use it at home a lot more now and we always have at least 1 pot on the go. Now, with Christmas is right around the corner we have teamed up with Sudocrem to tell you how you could win some amazing prizes. By playing Sudocrem’s Snowball Fight

Erin’s First Year At Nursery

I think we first decided on which nursery Erin would go to back when she was about 1. We chose a nursery attached to a private school as Erin seemed to be really comfortable there immediately. We took her to every open day they had until she was able to start after her 2nd birthday. I remember Erin’s settling in sessions like they were yesterday and where she went off happily to explore and make friends, I sat in the corner crying my eyes out because my little girl didn’t need me as much any more. Getting Erin used to

Organising Erin’s Play Area With Maqio Storage Boxes

Disclaimer: We received products for the purpose of this post. All opinions are our own.  If you are anything like us, a family with a child or children , then you’ve probably got a storage problem. The problem for us is that while our house is a pretty decent size it’s quite awkward and really, it doesn’t work well for us a lot of the time. We definitely didn’t buy this house with children in mind and if we had, I don’t think we would have bought it! Last month we made a big decision to move my office from

Highlights Of 2018

As years go, I think 2018 has been pretty amazing for a lot of different reasons. Of course, we had some really bad times too with things around the house breaking and costing us money as well as being broke a lot of the time due to paying Erin’s nursery fees every month. Instead of focusing on things that couldn’t be helped I thought I’d write a post about the great things we’ve done in 2018. Majorca In April we went on our very first family holiday abroad to Port de Pollensa in Majorca. We chose somewhere only a couple
