Pre-School Eating Habits and Nutrition Worries

Last week I took Erin to the doctor’s for her pre-school appointment. I didn’t even really know that this was a thing. We got a letter through saying it was time for her injections and the receptionist on the phone said we needed a 20 minute pre-school appointment. I had no idea what to expect apart from the obvious injections. The appointment was more useful than I thought it was going to be though and I got to have a really good chat with the nurse about anything I was worried about. One of the biggest subjects we spoke about

Family Friendly Attractions To Visit In Norfolk This Summer

AD | We previously received complimentary entry to some of these attractions Now that May half term is well and truly out of the way it’s time to start thinking about the summer holidays. With only just over 6 weeks to go I want to start pencilling in some activities and making some kind of plan. This will be the first summer since Erin started nursery that she will be home the whole time as there was a summer club at her old nursery. We don’t have that option now so I have 6 weeks to fill! I think we’re

Refreshing Erin’s Bedroom With Hurn And Hurn

AD | Gifted items Before Erin was born, and definitely before she actually went into her own room, we tried to get it as ready for her as possible. We’d bought furniture like a wardrobe and IKEA storage in advance and we haven’t really done anything else with it for a long time. I think the only thing that has really changed is swapping a cot for a toddler bed and adding some woodland themed bedding. Recently, we were asked by Hurn and Hurn to pick out some items to help spruce up Erin’s room a little bit. Stylish storage

Struggling With Solitude

I got my first job when I was 13. It was a paper round and it didn’t last very long but I soon got another job working in a cafe thanks to my Great Aunt. There haven’t been many times where I haven’t had a job between 13 and 33 and a lot of the times I have worked in customer service in some way. Jobs like that mean being around people all of the time and there’s generally always someone to talk to. I loved chatting to customers and I had some real favourites at my old job. I

How We Spent May Half Term

For the last half term I don’t think I was prepared enough. I hadn’t planned on doing much and I think both Erin and I got on each other’s nerves a bit. Now that she is usually at nursery for 4 days a week we don’t spend as much time together as we used to so I was really looking forward to having some adventures together. This is what we got up to over this May half term. Bank Holiday Weekend John had the whole of the bank holiday weekend off work. This usually doesn’t happen as he works a

Garden Fun With The Natural Tree House and Tunnel

AD | Gifted item We are always looking for new ways to get outdoors and playing in the garden is usually our go to choice. However, finding outdoor toys for Erin isn’t the easiest task especially if we don’t want to spend hundreds of pounds. Leaf Education recently got in touch to see if we wanted to try out their Natural Tree House and Tunnel though and I knew it would be something that Erin would enjoy playing with. When the product arrived I couldn’t get it out of the box quick enough. The tree house and tunnel are designed to
