Back in 2015, our twin girls helped me to make a fairy garden. Ever since then, the fairies have been quite clever in leaving surprises and gifts out for our girls when they’ve been good. It happens without warning. Usually when I’m on my way to pick the girls up from school. Whilst I’m out the fairies might make the girls their tea and have it ready on the table for them when they come home. Other times they’ve left little gifts like small jars of fairy dust or perhaps a new reading book, but this time they really have… [Read More]
When I was 16 years old, my parents bought me a lottery ticket. Sadly, I didn’t win anything from it, but over the course of a few years, I would treat myself now and again to a lottery ticket in the hopes that I’d win big! Sadly, this hasn’t happened yet, but I’m sure I’ll keep trying now and again! When I was asked to review Lottoland Online, I was curious to see what it was all about. With Lottoland you don’t actually play the lottery. Instead what you’re actually doing is making a bet on official lotteries draws. You’re… [Read More]
I love the idea of a good subscription box. A little special something that gets delivered straight to your door once a month. It’s a nice treat and something to look forward to. Fred’s Box is exactly that. It’s a subscription service for children. They send your kids a box each month containing mini figures that they can play with and add to their collection. My girls love a good collection so for them this really is a great idea! They were sent a twins medium sized mojo box to review which contains 12 custom made mini figures. The wonderful… [Read More]
Dear L, A and everyone else at the clinic where we had our IVF, From the very first day my husband and I met you all at your open evening, I think it’s fair to say that we knew we would be in a relationship with you that will truly last a lifetime. Although we haven’t seen one another for quite some time, there’s not a day that goes by without us thinking of you all. You see, you made our dream come true. Our dream to have children together, and you didn’t just make it happen once. You blessed us with twins,… [Read More]
I’m a firm believer that making learning fun for children is the best ay for them to become engaged and interested in the activity they’re doing. Learning through fun is a pretty effective way for children learn things quickly. In our home we like to play games. We have certainly have plenty of them! One of my favourite is a card game that is all about identifying different shapes and matching them to the correct pile. By learning their shapes using this game, our girls are shape experts! When the lovely people over at Parragon Books asked if I’d like… [Read More]
Mummy, it’s snowing!
Last weekend was spent with my husbands daughter. She came home from university for the weekend for a ‘sleepover’ as the girls say! They love it when she’s home! They wake her up early and cuddle under the duvet with her! We went to the park together which the girls had wanted to do with their sister for a while! I worked late on Monday which meant that I didn’t go to boot camp, but I did go to spin class on Tuesday and again on Thursday. I really want to get back into running so will have to make… [Read More]
It’s easy to get everyone together when it’s sunny outside, but when it’s drizzly and cold people tend to want to hibernate indoors! But it doesn’t have to be this way, as there’s still lots of things you can do when the weather isn’t great. Spending quality time with friends is important for keeping close, everyone is busy but you should make time for the people that you care about when you can. If it’s been too long since you saw your friends, here are are a few mate date ideas to consider that you can do even when the… [Read More]
