My Fairy Garden Watering Can Review

Fairy watering can

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]

Mojo Box Review by Fred’s Box

Fred's Box

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]

Start Little Learn Big with Parragon Books

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]

What we did this week

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]

Hacks For Helping Your Little Ones Sleep Easier

Sleeping child

Every living creature needs to sleep; that’s a fact of life. When children are first born, it takes a time to get them into a sleep schedule. It can take babies time to understand that when it’s light we stay awake and when it’s dark we go to sleep. Sleep is vital for babies as it’s when they are sleeping that their brain develops, and the same goes for children, as if they don’t get enough sleep, it impacts their mental and physical development. That’s why, it’s so important that you ensure your little ones are getting the 10 to… [Read More]

Our girls will be five years old at the end of this month and they’re well on their way with learning to read. They’ve always loved books.

They can fire up children’s imaginations and take them on amazing adventures. Every week our girls bring home two reading books from school. They’ve been doing since just before Christmas. Teaching children to read can be pretty tricky. Asking them to… [Read More]

New Beauty and The Beast Product Range!

Beauty and the Beast Product Range

I absolutely love Beauty and the Beast, and I’m super excited to see the new film staring Emma Watson next month which is in UK cinemas on 17th March. Casting my mind back to my childhood I think Beauty and the Best was the first film I ever felt a connection with. I wanted to be Belle! Her passion for books and her kind nature was something that I truly admired and then, of course, there was her love for her father. So much so that she would sacrifice herself for his freedom. Watching her relationship with the Beast develop… [Read More]

Where would we be without grandparents?

Grandparents are an important part of every family. The role they play in the lives of our children is just as important as the role they played in our very own childhoods. Quite often the benefit of having ‘hands-on’ grandparents is over looked, but if we were to ask ourselves the question, ‘Where would be without our grandparents?’ I bet we’d all be worse off than where we with them. When I was growing up my sister and I would see our grandparents at various intervals throughout the year. My mums parents would come to visit us on a regular basis…. [Read More]

The Pressure of Growing Up Today

When I was growing up, I spent most of my free time outdoors with my friends. We’d go to the park, walk in the river, sit outside the shops eating ice lollies on hot days and go to the woods to climb trees and build dens. Technology wasn’t really around. We had a desktop computer that my sister and I would use to play rollercoaster tycoon now and again, but aside from that we didn’t use our phones for anything other than making phone calls. I don’t think I got my first mobile phone until I was around 11 years… [Read More]
