Helping In The Garden With The Casdon Flymo

AD | Gifted  It was only a couple of months ago now that Erin really got to watch John mowing the lawn in our back garden for the first time. I think we’ve either kept her inside before now or done it while she was having a nap. Erin was absolutely fascinated though and she really wanted to help. Of course, it was a bit dangerous for her so I knew she would love the Casdon Flymo that we were sent recently. The Casdon Flymo comes in three really easy to put together parts, the main mower part and two

Exploring Nature With The GeoSafari Jr. Critter Habitat

AD | Gifted item As a child I don’t remember being very outdoorsy. I know that I definitely didn’t like any kind of creature or bug and I probably would have run a mile before actually picking one up or touching it. I know that’s really not a good way to be though and from a very young age we have encouraged Erin to embrace all there is about the outdoors. To help Erin get even more involved and interested in the great outdoors we were recently sent the GeoSafari Jr. Critter Habitat from Learning Resources. Often when we are out

Mud & Bloom Subscription Box Review

AD | Gifted item We are very lucky to have a large back garden and when the weather is nice, we are out there as much as possible. With the help of the nursery she goes to, Erin is becoming really interested in nature. She loves to look for bugs and the garden and we’re always talking about what flowers and plants we can see when we’re out and about. I have to be honest and say that I’m really not very good at outdoor activities and I sometimes struggle with thinking of things to do with Erin. We were

5 Family Friendly Garden Features

AD | Collaborative post When we moved into our house nearly 5 years ago we had a lot of work to do. The previous owners had left the back garden in a huge mess and while we did some extensive work to get it in a usable condition, there’s still a lot we need to do. We managed to clear the whole garden, have it levelled off and add some decking and turf but it’s still a pretty plain and boring area. We’re now looking to change things up a bit but we also have to take into account that

5 Benefits Of Adding A Conservatory To Your Home

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

Getting Out In The Garden With Home Bargains

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

Keeping Our Home Tidy With Vintage Apple Crates

AD – This post is in collaboration with Vintage Apple Crates. All opinions are our own.  Erin is such an outdoorsy child and I think from the minute she learned to walk, she wanted to be in the garden. We have had a good few weeks of bad weather lately but that doesn’t stop Erin from wanting to either play outside or go to the park. Unfortunately, our large lawn gets extremely muddy and disgusting during the winter and I’m a bit reluctant to let Erin play out there a lot of the time. At home, all of Erin’s shoes
