A Treat Idea For Nursery School Friends

Haribo sweets are most definitely a popular choice when it comes to getting a little treat for your children’s friends when it’s their birthdays. I used to go with a carrier bag full of sweets, sweets I happened to hate as a child. With it being the first year that P2 has to dish out the treats for her birthday, …

Valentines Jam Heart Biscuits

I used to hate Valentine’s Day. I felt it was very commercialised and a date in the diary specifically for people to make money from. Surely if you love someone you should be showing them that each day, not just one day out of 365. But then I joined the blogging world and this year I’m making an effort to …

A Weight Loss Motivation Boost

I am now 3 weeks into my weight loss journey. My main goal wasn’t really to eat healthier but to eat less. Like the saying goes “everything in moderation”. I planned to cut my portions by half and stick to eating 1,000 calories a day. A big thing for me to cut was the biscuits. During the first week I …

Pancakes are P1s absolute favourite breakfast and seeing as I am actually really enjoying baking and cooking recently, I decided to give some American pancakes a go today. Here’s the recipe for these yummy star shaped …

Drinking More Water This Winter With Robinsons Drinks

My favourite drink is water. It’s the only thing that really quenches my thirst in the summer. But it’s now winter and I am going to admit that I’m drinking much less. There’s not that heat that makes your mouth dry and gasping for some liquid. But have no fear because Robinsons have come to my rescue and I’m here …

3 Easy Recipes For Children’s Lunches With Bernard Matthews

When P1 first started school she was a packed luncher. She loved it but I absolutely hated trying to find new, filling ideas to put in them each day. She ended up eating chocolate spread sandwiches, some fruit and crisps each day. So as soon as the Government gave free school meals for Key Stage 1, we switched to school …

Talking About Sleep With Arla Big Milk #BigSteps

I am beginning to think I should be editing the caption of my blog to “A Blog From The Heart Of A Sleep Deprived Mum” because quite frankly, that’s all I seem to be blogging about lately. Sleep is a sore subject for me and that’s due to the lack of it. When I read back on when P1 was …

SMA® Nutrition “Come & Wean With Us™” & Competition

When I wrote my first post for the SMA Nutrition Come & Wean With Us campaign a few weeks ago, P3 was quite happily plodding along in her weaning journey with little struggles if I’m honest. Since then our weaning journey has changed quite significantly. P3 is learning to feed herself completely, when I say completely I really do mean it. Everything …

“My days feel very long and my nights extremely short”

My life lately has been super busy but not in the sense of actually going out very much. We haven’t done very much of that but yet I feel like I can’t breathe. My days feel very long and my nights extremely short with P2 and P3 waking so frequently, mainly P2 may I add.  We’ve been cooking with Hello …

My First Pizza from Little Dish A Review

We eat pizza a lot in this family. Pizza (and pasta and cheese) are always available and are my “go to” food for a quick meal when time is rushed or the kids are screaming the house down where I’ve forgotten the time and it’s nearly bed time but their tummy’s are hungry. We very rarely order a takeaway pizza …

#innocentFiveADay Fruit & Veg Fest and A Competition

I was up, showered and basically dressed before my three daughters and hubby had even opened their little eyeballs Tuesday. I always hate it when this situation occurs. It’s like I’m breaking the law of sleep and should be severely punished but it was all for a good cause. Innocent Drinks had invited the girls and me up to Fruit …
