Rick Stein Fistral

It’s our second day in Cornwall and the sun is shining! We went to Newquay Zoo in the morning for a couple of hours and then drove to Fistral for lunch. We had lunch in Rick Stein’s restaurant and it was amazing! I think I can safely say it was the best fish and chips…

Kids Knead Play: Construction Play Dough Kit

It’s the first day of our holiday and it has unfortunately rained all day. This is our third time visiting Cornwall, so we are well aware of how unpredictable the weather can be, so thankfully I was prepared and I packed a few toys and crafty bits to keep the girls entertained. You’ll know from…

Healthier Chocolate, Banana & Yoghurt Ice Lollies

During the summer months the top drawer in my freezer is always packed with lots of different ice lollies. Let’s face it, children’s ice lollies aren’t exactly the healthiest treat and the girls always shoot into hyperactive mode as soon as the ice lolly hits their tummies. Making your own ice lollies, takes no time…

Get Out and Grow Giveaway

I’m so proud to become a Get Out and Grow Sudocrem Ambassador. We all know how important it is to encourage children to get outside in the fresh air. A lot of parents either don’t have the time or the capabilities to garden. I’m absolutely useless and I’ve never had green fingers, no plant is…

JimJams

Is it just me or does anyone else get excited when they come across a new healthier treat for their children? Both of my girls have inherited my sweet tooth, so when I found out that JimJams have way less sugar in their Hazelnut Chocolate Spread and Milk Chocolate Dippers, I just had to try…

Father’s Day at Godstone Farm

We had lots of fun celebrating Father’s Day at Godstone Farm today with Nana & Grandad and we didn’t let the rain dampen our spirits. The heavens opened just as we arrived, so we dashed to the Soft Play Barn and had coffee and cake, whilst we let the girls run loose. I got my…

Face Paint Sticks by Little Brianp

I love to encourage the girls to use their imaginations wherever possible and they both love exploring their creative sides. We were kindly gifted Face Paint Sticks by Little Brian and they are amazing! Of course Bella requested to be her favourite Dinosaur, a Triceratops and we decided to turn Flo into a Dalmatian because…

Travel Boredom Buster

We are off to Cornwall next week for our first family holiday of the year. It’s such a long drive and from where we live, it can take over five hours to get there by car. To stop Bella asking “are we nearly yet?” 50,000 times and to avoid the girls getting royally fed up,…

Bedtime Woes

In terms of the girls bedtime routine I must admit I’ve been slacking lately. After a non stop, tiring day of looking after my two little Duracell Bunnies, I’ve been letting bad bedtime habits creep in. The girls are really beginning to play nicely together and if they are engrossed in their game and not…

Busy Bags by Little Scribblers

I wanted to share this amazing Full Circle Shape & Space Busy Bag by Little Scribblers with you all. It not only gives Bella the confidence to try something new, because she is having so much fun whilst learning, it also holds her attention and keeps her thoroughly entertained. These Busy Bags by Little Scribblers…
