Mothers Day Gift Guide 2020

Thursday, March 12, 2020

Now we are in March, which means it is almost Mother's Day again. I really enjoy putting together guides full of lovely gifts and this year I have been sent some amazing gifts to share with you all. (Please note these items have been sent in exchange for my views but all opinions are my own.)

Tru Bamboo Premium Extra Large Cheese Board and Knife Set

If your Mum is a cheese lover then this gift would be perfect. The bamboo cheeseboard is amazing quality. It is solid and heavy and has a pull out drawer containing a selection of cheese knives. It was much bigger than I expected it to be so would fit a great selection of cheeses for entertaining guests. It is a bargain at just £22.45 and is available to buy here. You could even buy a selection of cheese or some nice crackers to go with the cheeseboard to gift your mum a proper cheeseboard experience. 

Review: Smiggle #Justbeyou

Tuesday, January 28, 2020

I was recently contacted by Smiggle who had a great idea for a new post. They wanted to give me a voucher to spend and let the children loose in Smiggle choosing whatever they wanted regardless of colour/design to celebrate their individuality. So last weekend I took Gracie, Zach and Elsie over to Smiggle to do some shopping. 

They loved being able to roam around the shop trying to choose what they wanted and they surprised me with how sensible they were with the items they chose. Elsie loved the Star Wars BB8 lunchbox but said she didn't need one as she already has a pretty Frozen one from Smiggle. The children have really enjoyed drawing and colouring lately and I could tell that this influenced the items they chose. 

Meet Archibald

Sunday, January 26, 2020

I have been so busy lately that I neglected to share our new arrival. This is Archibald, Archie for short and he is our beautiful Border Terrier/Westie cross. We had been visiting him since he was born way back in September and we bought him home on the 1st December. He has fit in so well with family life. He loves attention and gets plenty of it between us and the children. He loves going out for walks and we have plenty of lovely local places to visit with him. 

The Children have declared Archie is their little brother already and they love playing in the garden with him, throwing him balls and sticks, as well as snuggling up to him on the sofa for some downtime. He does love his cuddles.

He also has his own Instagram because he is just adorable and I love sharing photos of him and enjoying all the other doggy pictures in his news feed which brighten my days. He will occasionally pop up on my IG and FB pages too but feel free to follow him if you want a daily dose of puppy cuteness!
