Reuben has an obsession with Kinder Surprise Eggs. If he sees one, he has to have it!! I get the impression from watching other kids and chatting to other Mums that this is a pretty standard reaction!
I came across this awesome idea when I was trawling through one of my favourite websites babyccinokids, who… Continue reading
We have a tonne of weaning pots that I have used for the kids over the years but now that Edie is bigger we have absolutely no use for them as weaning pots, in fact to be fair, we’ve never really used them for her because she’s never been a fan of pureed food or… Continue reading
Let’s talk slime.
You remember that putty like stuff that you used to play with obsessively as a child? The one that literally EVERY party bag ever known to man contained? Well, you can make it with just two ingredients and one of them I’m willing to bet you already have.

At this time of year I tend to go scent crazy – I don’t just like the halls to be decked with Christmas, but I also like to be able to smell Christmas!! I have a tonne of seasonal room fresheners and candles, and from what I can gather a lot of people do too!… Continue reading

It’s super easy to make so they literally make it themselves and I just supervise. It… Continue reading
I’m not an especially crafty person (have I mentioned that before…?) but I do like ‘giving it a go’ with the kids – it rarely turns out Pinterest worthy, in fact it usually appears that they could have done a far better job without my involvement but we have fun nonetheless.
I made… Continue reading
We had so much fun making these! I found the recipe on one of my fave apps Big Oven and the reviews were great apart from the odd complaint about how crumbly they were – make no mistake they crumble up really fast, but if you are like me you will love that in a… Continue reading
Potpourri is insanely easy to make and it’s one of those things that can literally lift and coordinate a room, set the tone and scent it in one – you show me a candle that can do all of that!
