I recently was asked if I would like to become a member of the Sainsburys Family Blogger Network. I was over the moon to be asked, it means a lot to me and my family. I am proud of my self for how far my blog has come along since starting it last year. I have had so much positive feedback regarding my blog, and such lovely comments about what I have written. I also recently got a mention on the Sainsburys family blogger website. http://www.sainsburysbank.co.uk/money-matters/family-blog-reviews.shtml
I was asked if I would like to write a blog post about a Grand Adventure that I would like to go on, with £1000. I instantly jumped at the chance, as there is a Grand Adventure I have wanted to do for a long time now. So where would your grand adventure take you? Would you go, somewhere hot, somewhere cold, somewhere expensive or somewhere cheap and save your money for trips? I would love to go to the Maldives, Jamaica and France to go skiing. Although these places are fantastic places I don’t think they are places to… View Post
So my little man is now 20 months old. My question is… When do I start sitting him on a potty? Shall I buy one and leave it around so he gets used to it? Shall I sit him on it every morning or night? In the morning when little man gets up his nappy is soaking wet, I am not sure when is best to try sitting him on the potty or even if I should be starting yet. Any help and advice will be very much appreciated.
So today we finally have some snow. Although I have to say I am slightly disappointed with the amount of snow. There wasn’t really enough snow to make a decent size snowman. My little man kept standing at the window watching the snow falling. I absolutely love the snow and I love to get out and make a snowman and have a play about in the snow. I looked out the window and though how beautiful this tree looked at the back of our house.
I have never been to Centre Parcs before and I have always thought it was so expensive for what it is. The other half has been wanting to go for ages and I finally agreed to book to go. We are going in May to celebrate little mans 2nd Birthday. I am so excited about decorating the lodge with banners and balloons for him. My parents are also joining us for the 4 nights. Just hope the weather will be nice so we can have a BBQ and enjoy being outside in the fresh air. WE are going to… View Post
So for Christmas I was lucky enough to get an IPad from my wonderful partner. I have wanted one for so long and never thought I would get one. So one Christmas morning when I opened it I was absolutely over the moon. The only problem being I was not the only one excited about my IPad. A little man was excited as well. On a Friday when my mum looks after him, shes brings her Ipad with her, so little man knows what fun and games is on these Ipads for him. So after having a play on it… View Post
Today I went to see my friend. She has a little girl who is 5. Just before Christmas my partner and I was thinking about getting our little man a chalk board, but we thought he was a bit young and would not really play with it. Today thought at my friend’s house he was playing with the chalk board for 20 minutes and he loved it. He drew some lines with the chalk and then would wipe it off, and then draw again. Has made me think I may have to buy him a chalk board now.
Today we decided to take little man out for a walk at our local Ferry meadows. It’s a lovely place for children, and to walk around the big lake. It was really busy today. Little man loved us pushing him around on his new bike. He loves being out in the fresh air, and ended up having a tantrum when we had to leave.
Last Friday we had a friend’s wedding to go to. I decided that for the first time in however long I was going to paint my nails. Not the usual pale colours I usually go for, no. A bright rich red colour. I was sitting downstairs with little man playing with his toys. I had the little table up and had my nail varnish on the table,Ii was very aware that my little man was playing, and I needed to be careful that he did not grab the bottle. So imagine this…. I am sitting there painting my nails, red… View Post
