Review: Wild Cakes

Thursday, February 28, 2019

It has been a while since we last did a toy review but we had been eagerly awaiting the release of Wild Cakes since I got to see them at Blog On last September. Now they are finally here and we got our hands on them to review. You may have seen Sweet Pups which were released last year, if not you can read our review here. Basically, the toys look simply like yummy sweet treats from afar but have a little surprise. Each one can be turned inside out to reveal a cute creature. Also they are cake scented! They smell exactly like the cake would in real life. They really do smell amazing.

National Trust Calke Abbey

Wednesday, February 20, 2019


When my Dad asked what we all wanted for Christmas last year, I asked for a National Trust family membership. It was a low priced gift that we could all enjoy throughout the year. I have visited many National Trust sites over the years and have been a card holder before, back when Elsie was a baby. At that time we visited places in the West Midlands/ Warwickshire and whenever going away for a holiday we would try and visit any local sites. Since moving to Derbyshire last year, we haven't managed to explore many local attractions but there are so many National Trust properties nearby. 

Review: Half-Term at Warwick Castle

Tuesday, February 19, 2019


Yesterday we were invited to visit Warwick Castle to enjoy a day out over half-term. It was our first official day of half-term and we surprised the children, they had no idea where we were going. Over the years Warwick Castle has become a family favourite. We have been so many times and it never gets boring. They are always adding new attractions and shows which makes it a really fun way for the kids to learn about history. 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) My First Session

Wednesday, February 06, 2019


I have just completed my first Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Session with the Talking Mental Health Derbyshire Team. I am so thankful for the mental health resources in my area. With the house move and leaving my friends behind, having so much stress renovating the house and simply feeling so alone at times, it has really taken it's toll on me. 

To 2019...

Wednesday, February 06, 2019


Wow I seem to have taken almost two months out of blogging, not intentionally, but I had planned to take a few weeks out over Christmas and New Year to enjoy every moment I could with my family. I really did have a lovely relatively stress free Christmas, we celebrated Gracie's birthday after Christmas and January has been so busy! I know most people feel like January is a very long month but it flew by for me.
