10 Garden Activities with Chalk

Chalk is a wonderful thing. You can use it to draw on boards, floors and even paper. You can use it to practise letter writing, drawing pictures or to play games. I recently picked up a pack of outdoor chalk from ASDA for our twin girls and I was pretty amazed at just how many different games and activities we managed to do with the chalks. I thought I’d share them with you! They’re perfect for a warm summers day in the garden. Hop Scotch I know, I know, Hop Scotch in the picture is below has been drawn wrong!… [Read More]

My Favourite Outdoor Toys for Winter

Winter can often be a time when families retreat to the warmth of their living rooms and forget that their garden exists, but that needn’t be the case. Just because it’s a bit cold and damp doesn’t mean you should stay indoors. Getting outdoors in winter can be just as much fun as doing so in the summer. Here are few of my favourite outdoor toys for winter. Scooters are lots of fun and a great alternative to squashing the kids into a car to pop to the shops. That also goes for roller-skates too!

Joules Field Welly Review

I recently discovered Joules after finding a gift from them in my Britmums Live goody bag. A beautiful, multi-coloured fabric key ring. Joules sell a range of clothes for men, women and children.

Started by Tom Joule over 30 years ago, he first started selling his products at country equestrian and outdoor events. He realised one day that clothing didn’t reflect people’s personalities and so Joules was born. Joules are all about colour and detail…. [Read More]

Garden Games Wigwam Review

During the summer months I often looked for something I could use in the garden to help keep our girls cool and also to protect them from the sun. I have a sun umbrella, but it’s not very big. When I was asked by Garden Games to review one of their play tents I was overjoyed! I chose to review the Pink Love Heart Wigwam as I simply love the pink, girly design. As well as being an outdoor tent, you can use it indoors so it can be used all year round. Garden Games began in 1997 when Stuart Cardy made the first… [Read More]

Unusual Wedding Venues

Twin Daddy and I got married in January 2012, exactly 43 days before our twins were born. It didn’t us long to plan our wedding and within two to three months everything was set. We were engaged for around a year before we married and I love the fact that although our girls weren’t born, they were at our wedding! Twin Daddy and I always planned on getting married and I really wanted to get married before twins were born. I wanted the same surname as them! Twin Daddy and I got married in our local registry office and we… [Read More]
