Sunday 30th December 2012. I am back!!

  Hello to all the people who read my blog. I am really sorry that I have not posted anything on here over the festive period. On Christmas eve Little man was told by the doctor he had tonsillitis. Christmas day came and he had a high temperature, sticky eye and had been up most of the night crying, So he was then very tired in the day. He is still on antibiotics and is a lot better now. Just feels like Christmas has come and gone so fast, as I was busy looking after little man most of the… View Post

Secret Santa part 2.

So I decided to get my secret Santa something funny. I got him a mug, which on the bottom says I’m a t**t. Good job I know him well enough to know he would take it as a joke and think it is funny. So when he is drinking out of the mug you can see what it says on the bottom. Most people got something rude such as nipple tassels, booby mugs, willy lollies etc. I however got something much better than any of that rubbish. I got a lovely bottle of my favourite red wine. I was very… View Post

Tuesday 18th December 2012, Where has the year gone???

  I can not believe that a week today, we will be opening presents and eating massive roast Turkey dinners. Where has this year gone? I am assuming a lot of people will now be on the wind down to Christmas now. I am looking forward to Christmas day so much this year. Our little man is now just over 19 months old, so he knows a lot more about what is going on. I’ve wrapped his presents so he is able to get his fingers into the paper and rip it open. I have wrapped every single present now.… View Post

Saturday 15th December 2012, Party time!!!

PARTY TIME Today little man attended his cousins 1st birthday party. It was the first birthday party he has been to. The party was at an indoor soft play area. Little man has always been a bit clingy when he is in a place he does not know, or if there are a lot of people about. I thought he would just want to be with us all the time and not go off and play. I was wrong he loved it. As soon as I put him down he ran off with his shoes on. I had to run… View Post

Saturday 15th December 2012. Christmas Tree

We haveĀ  finally got our Christmas tree up. I had the day off work on Thursday, and I made the house look very Christmassy. This was while little man was at nursery and the other half was at work. I left it late this year to put our tree up, this is due to the fact I know little man would pull the tree and baubles. I wasn’t wrong. Now the tree is up he wont leave it alone. I thought after a day or two he would get bored and leave it alone, but no he is far from… View Post

Thursday 13th December 2012. Today is the Day.

Today I have the day off work. The other half is at work, little man is at nursery. So what am I going to do? Well today is the day I am putting up our Christmas tree. We’re a bit late this year, but we have been so busy and not had chance to do it. When little man gets home from nursery and the other half gets home, the house will look like a grotto. Will post a picture later after I have put all our decorations out and the tree up.

Wednesday 12th December 2012. Sainsburys Flowers.

I don’t often see my grandma, something I really should do more. Four weeks ago my dad brought her over to our house to see us and little man. She bought little man some clothes which were lovely, and she bought me some flowers. Now these flowers were only cheap flowers from Sainsburys. Not usually the ones I would buy. Personally I would usually buy some more expensive ones, thinking they are better quality and look nicer. This morning I was sitting at the table having breakfast and I looked at the flowers. I thought they look as good as… View Post

Learning Resources Answer Buzzers Review

Last week I got sent these answer buzzers from learning Resources. My first thought was they looked great. Nice bright colours, blue, green, orange and purple. The sounds the buzzers make are… Doorbell, boxing bell, boing and honking horn. The purpose of these buzzers is you can ask questions and your child can buzz in with the answer buzzers, its like they are on their own game show. I did the review with my niece and nephew who are 6 and 9. I told them we were going to do some learning with a twist. The minute I said it… View Post

Monday 10th December 2012. Stilton Butchers

What seems like forever ago now, me and my partner bought our meat from the supermarket. It was OK, but the chicken was always full of water and would shrink when we cooked it. The mince and bacon were OK or so we thought. This was until we decided to start getting our meat from Stilton Butchers located in Peterborough. This is not a butchers where you can walk into. The way it works is you order on-line and then your meat gets delivered, or you can go and collect it. So we decided to order some chicken, mince and… View Post

Saturday 8th December 2012. Winter Wonderland

Today we have been to a Winter Wonderland at little mans nursery. We were so busy having a good time, I totally forgot to take any pictures. Little man saw Santa, and got a present. As all kids do he wanted to open it straight away. In different rooms there was different activities. So there was a party room, where we played pass the parcel. There was a cake decorating room, messy play room and just a normal play and finally there was a sweet room. Made us feel very christmassy. Little man was running about all over the place,… View Post
