Review: Mr Frosty Choc Ice Maker

Thursday, November 08, 2018

My kids love food activities. I however, struggle with having the patience to help them all when it comes to these kind of activities. I can't even explain how much I love it when something easy to use without too many ingredients comes along and we actually manage to create something stress-free and fun! The Mr Frosty Choc Ice Maker is just that. Included in the kit is; a silicone mould with penguin and snowman shapes, six reusable lollipop sticks and an igloo which can be use to melt the chocolate in with a lid that can stand the finished choc ices. It is as simple as that. You just need to provide the food items as and when needed. 


Review: Little Dragons Cafe Playstation4

Friday, November 02, 2018

Back in September at Blog On Xmas, I came across the team promoting Little Dragons Cafe. My children are not big gamers, they struggle with so many games needing lots of assistance which I struggle to give as I suffer with motion sickness if I spend too long on any console! For that reason they usually only use the Playstation to watch Netflix but I thought this game looked perfect for them. 


It Is Almost Time To Decorate #Ad

Thursday, November 01, 2018

Before Photo- Living Room
Since buying our house back in May, we have had lots of work going on. We have had the whole house rewired, the roof repaired, leaks fixed and all sorts of other fixing jobs. We have finished decorating the boys bedroom with freshly painted walls and a new carpet. I have painted the Kitchen to give it a fresh new look. In 5 months we have achieved a lot but still have a long way to go. With Christmas coming up, we are desperate to have the girls' and our bedrooms plastered and decorated, before we start on our living/dining rooms in the New Year. We currently have just stripped walls and bare floorboards in the bedrooms so it will be amazing to have everything feeling so homely!

Me and Mine

Me and Mine (October 2018)

Wednesday, October 31, 2018

October has been a mixed month. We have managed to get a lot more done in the house over the weekends and are feeling very much like things are finally coming together. We are almost ready to start decorating the rest of the bedrooms in the house, so fingers crossed we will all be sleeping in our own rooms again soon (hurrah). We managed a brief trip back to Coventry to see some family for the first time since moving. We didn't see everyone we wanted to though so will hopefully be back again soon.


Halloween: Why We Love It Despite The Haters

Monday, October 29, 2018

I have always loved Halloween. I remember trick or treating every year back when I was a child. It usually involved dressing in a bin bag with a plastic witches nose and a supermarket carrier bag to hold any sweeties. My brother would be wrapped in numerous rolls of toilet paper which would rarely last the night or wearing a cheap silly mask. It definitely wasn't as commercialised as it is these days, yet with the surge of popularity, people seem to be much more vocal about their hate for it. 

Made With Love And Sparkle #ad

Monday, October 15, 2018

One thing that I love to have in my home is personalised gifts. I have so many little treasures gifted to me over the years by family and friends and I love displaying them around my home. I also love to buy thoughtful gifts for my loved ones and will always try to find something special for them on occasions. Made With Love & Sparkle make a large range of personalised gifts for everyone and I had the difficult choice of deciding on an item from their website recently.

World Mental Health Day: The Truth

Friday, October 12, 2018

Wednesday was World Mental Health Day. I didn’t write about it because I had a bad day and the last thing I want to do on a bad day is write or do anything for myself. My blog is suffering at the moment because of the way I feel and I don’t know what to do about it. Sometimes I can pick myself up and feel motivated for a day or two but it doesn’t last long and I am back to square one again. 

In all honesty I feel worse at the moment than I ever have in my life. I thought moving away and having a fresh start would be good for me. I thought I would spend my days enjoying the country air and chatting to new mums at the school at pick up and drop off time. I thought I could reinvent myself and become a happier me. In reality, I have never felt more isolated and alone. In the five months since I have moved, I have lost almost all of my old friends and haven’t made a single new one.
