AD | Collaborative post When we bought our house nearly 5 years ago we did so knowing that we had a bit of extra space outside and we might not actually need it all. We have a fairly nicely sized patio area to the side of our kitchen which follows on to a really large lawn. A lot of the time, the back end of our house doesn’t really work for us and while we can’t afford to extend, a conservatory could be a more affordable option. Here are 5 benefits of adding a conservatory to your home: Increase the
AD | Gifted Items Erin wanted a bike pretty much as soon as she walk. She saw other children on theirs and desperately wanted to be the same. Up until recently Erin had a Toddlebike2 and has really enjoyed riding it. She’s gone from practising in the living room, to playing in the garden and then to going for a ride down the street. As she turned 3 earlier this year the Toddlebike2 was no longer working for Erin and it was just too small for her. We decided to upgrade Erin to a balance bike and Kiddimoto helped us
A couple of weeks ago John and I were having a bit of an argument about something. I don’t even really remember what the argument was about now but there was one thing that really stuck with me. John had a bit of a dig at me for saying that I didn’t enjoy or like going out for meals with Erin. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say I hate eating out with my 3 year old. It’s just not fun so I don’t see why I should have to like it. I wish I could say that I
AD | Gifted Experience Earlier this year Red Letter Days got in touch to see if we would like to try one of their experiences. Living in Norfolk and not being able to drive usually means that we’re not able to get to a lot of places but having been for afternoon tea and a massage last year, I knew of somewhere we could go. We decided to go with the Country House Escape for 2 at The Grove in Cromer. This particular experience is available Sunday to Friday, throughout the year, excluding summer holidays, Christmas and New Year period.
AD | Gifted items Spring is finally here after what seems to be a very long wait. The weather is slowly getting warmer, the nights are getting lighter and that means I have been looking forward to getting out in the garden more. Our garden is actually really basic but I just don’t go out there during the winter. So, when the time comes there ends up being quite a bit I need to do to get the garden ready for summer. This year Home Bargains sent us a wonderful selection of their gardening products to help us out. It’s pointless
AD | Gifted Item Crocodiles are probably one of Erin’s favourite animals. We sing songs about them, have puzzles in the shape of them and we love reading stories about them. Today John is talking about Kiss the Crocodile by Sean Taylor and Ben Mantle. Down in the jungle, three best friends – Monkey, Tortoise and Anteater – are playing silly games together. After Stick Splash, Scary Monsters and Silly Dancing, they spy Little Crocodile and his big crocodile mum in the swamp. Do they want to play a new game, Little Crocodile asks … a DARING game. KISS THE CROCODILE!
AD | Gifted item This year, since changing to a Montessori nursery, Erin has really started to ask more questions and be more interested in so many things. Something Erin is really interested in at the moment is time and when certain things happen. Something we look out for on a daily basis is when Daddy will be home from work and I try to explain the time on the clock we have above the fireplace. This isn’t ideal as I have to lift Erin up and she can’t really see well enough and she wants to touch the clock!
AD | Gifted item Just a couple of weeks ago we reviewed the Fuzzikins Fuzzi Babies and Erin had so much fun with them. Since then, we have washed and reused the figures so when we were asked to review the Fuzzikins Bedtime Bunnies I knew it would be something that Erin would enjoy and with Easter coming up, what better time to try it! What’s in the box: 1 x large Fuzzikins bunny figure 1 x medium Fuzzikins bunny figure 1 x small Fuzzikins bunny figure 3 x Felt Tip Pens 3 x felt beds Felt accessories Instructions The
