First Anniversary Gift Ideas

First Anniversary Gift Ideas

This week Hunky Husband and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary. We’re not very traditional really, but we’d decided we wanted to follow traditional anniversary themes, but I really don’t like anything personalized, which is what you get loads of if you google “1st wedding […]

Little Owls Farm

Little Owls Farm

All kids love a day at the farm. Most adults too for that matter. We’ve been staying with my parents this week, so went to Little Owls Farm in Worcestershire. They have animals, a soft play area, an area with toy tractors for the kids […]

Pumpkin Carving: The Horror

Pumpkin Carving: The Horror

It’s awful! Sticky, messy, a bit gross, and a lot harder than the internet would have you believe. The Boy announced he was too tired after approximately 12 seconds and left me in a mound of pumpkin innards. A truly unpleasant experience. What you will […]

Make Your Own Awesome Halloween Monsters

Make Your Own Awesome Halloween Monsters

I might start calling this toilet roll tubes of the week. Honestly, how can one family possibly go through this much toilet roll?! This week we’ve made the most of the last few weeks before Halloween, and made a Bat, Ghost and a Frankenstein. The […]

Our Eleven Month Routine

Our Eleven Month Routine

I often find myself wondering “is this what The Boy did when he was this age?” or indeed, “Isn’t she meant to have more naps?!” but I really can’t remember. The Boy seemed to be a baby for a really long time, I don’t know […]

My Top 10 Weaning Tips

My Top 10 Weaning Tips

Weaning is something we’ve never had trouble with. I wouldn’t even say we’ve weaned, just given them food and they’ve eaten it. At just over 6 months they’ve both been eating the same as the rest of us, not even mashed up or blended. The […]

Make Your Own Halloween Monsters!

Make Your Own Halloween Monsters!

Today we’ve turned our limited artistic abilities to making Halloween monsters. The Boy is forever asking if we can keep toilet rolls tubes (and cereal boxes, yogurt pots, crisp wrappers, basically all the rubbish!) to make something with. I say yes and then secretly throw […]

Homemade Beef Burgers

Homemade Beef Burgers

I love Homemade Burgers. They’re so versatile, you can add any flavours you want, and any toppings you want. I like cheese and pineapple, bacon, more cheese, haloumi, other meats, and a bit more cheese. Probably not all on the same burger, but then again, […]

Bread Rolls

Bread Rolls

I love making bread, the kneading, feeling it change as I go, the satisfaction when you check on it after proving and its massive, the smell that lingers for days afterwards, but for some reason, I’ve only ever made basic white bread or rolls. Which […]

The Girl’s First Play Centre Adventure

The Girl’s First Play Centre Adventure

We took The Girl to a play centre for the first time today. I feel a bit like we might have left it a bit late, I remember taking The Boy when he was really young, maybe 6 months, but to be honest I think […]
