Father’s Day Gift Guide 2018

Sunday, 17th June is father’s day! Mark it in your diary! Father’s day is a special day for me. It’s a chance for my children and I to show their daddy just how much we love and appreciate him. He probably won’t get breakfast in bed though. I mean, for starters, he’s usually awake long before I am, and secondly, he doesn’t eat breakfast! That being said though, I like to make a fuss and spoil him! Whether that be with some lovely, carefully chosen gifts or perhaps a nice meal out at his favourite restaurant. Either way, as long… [Read More]

Lost My Name Personalised Book Review

If you’re looking for a magical keepsake to gift your little one this Christmas, then I have the perfect suggestion for you! The little girl who lost her name is a personalised book based around the letters of your child’s name. So, if your child was called Noah, he could meet a Narwhal, Okapi, Angel and Hedgehog, for example.  The beauty of these books is that each child’s name creates a unique tale. Great for those with twins, like us, or more than one child, as each story differs!  From the outside you could be mistaken for thinking that these… [Read More]

Camping Memories with Mum

I like to think that my childhood was a good one. My sister and I didn’t really want for anything. We had nice holidays, nice things and never went without. One of my fondest memories was when my mum took my sister and I camping with her friend and her daughter. We went to the Gower Peninsula. Three Cliffs Bay Caravan Park to be precise. It was beautiful. The view of the sandy beach with the three pointed cliffs, and the sound of the sea was very serene. It was like an adventure! When we arrived the first thing we… [Read More]

Oh to be young and have no responsibilities! I remember the days well! I lived for the weekend! I could do what I wanted, when I wanted and where I wanted! Saturday would typically be spent travelling – to the beach, a new restaurant or entertainment venue whereas Sunday was usually a day to spend lazing on the sofa watching TV. If I was lucky I might even nod off for an hour or two! Things have changed a lot since becoming a parent! My days are now filled with play groups, crafts, swimming trips, play dates and trips to… [Read More]
