Like all 2.5 year olds Tiny is obsessed with Peppa Pig so after hearing how great Peppa Pig World was we decided to plan a mini trip there in the summer holidays as a treat. We went at the beginning of August and, although 30 degree heat can suck the joy from most things, we … Continue reading Review: Peppa Pig World at Paulton’s.
It's always great to be able to work with a brand that you really believe in and I love the positive parenting message behind Isabella and Us. Let's face it - parenting is hard. It is wonderful and rewarding but it's also exhausting, terrifying and all consuming at times. We constantly celebrate the progress of … Continue reading Review: Isabella and Us Mummy Cards.
We are all saddled with parent guilt at some point or other. The key is to not let it take over. I often wonder if our parents ever felt guilty for putting brandy on our gums, or letting us sleep in a carry cot in the boot of the Volvo estate car...probably not. If you're … Continue reading Parent Guilt
I'm finally starting to feel a bit more springy now that the snow has melted (again) so it seemed like the perfect time to get stuck in to our latest box gifted by the lovely Mud and Bloom. First of all we planted some sunflower and mini cucumber seeds. The box comes with everything you … Continue reading Review: Mud and Bloom March Box.
As most of you will know I gave up my life in London and moved 150 miles to Devon last July so that we could be closer to Tiny's grandparents (and the BEACH!)

Step 2: Pour the cupcake mix into a … Continue reading Review: Peppa Pig Muddy Puddle Cupcakes.

My brother-in-law has been promising to give Tiny his old wardrobe for a few months now... once he eventually clears it out. It looks like it might actually happen this week so I've been sorting Tiny's heaps of hand-me-downs into sizes ready to put in the wardrobe. We're the last of our friends and family … Continue reading Wardrobe Dividers: A useful creative task to do with your toddler.
Like all new mums I was really keen (and still am) to take Tiny to lots of different baby groups. This has become increasingly important to me as I'm not sure she will get the opportunity (good, bad or otherwise) to attend nursery until she gets her free hours later on. I only lasted one term … Continue reading The best and worst of the baby groups.
